The terms ‘high-performance’ and ‘scooter’ usually fit together about as well as pickles and peanut butter but Stuart Owen has customized his 1970 Lambretta to be among the fastest in the world. Owen, a former fish wholesaler who now runs a scooter customizing business, currently holds the fastest speed achieved by a Lambretta on British soil at 117.3 mph.
In addition to beating British titles and breaking track times, Owen, has handily beaten 250cc motorcycles during many races.

Auctioneer Bonhams has slapped a reserve price of £7,500 on the Lambretta, which has been lengthened, chopped, lightened and tuned. If your favorite movie happens to be Quadrophenia and you have £10,000 burning a hole in your pocket, this may be the ride you’ve been waiting for.
