A SCOOTER from the film Quadrophenia took centre stage at the recent Classic Bike Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

The scooter, an LI150 dating back to 1963, was showcased on the Footman James stand and was an instant attraction for motorcycle and scooter lovers. The bike — which is owned by Dave and Jo Porter from Nottingham — was bought earlier this year.

Scooter and memorabilia fans for a long time, Dave and Jo heard about a garage find through the Lambretta Club GB.

It was an instant love affair as enthusiasts Dave and Jo already own several well-known scooter models including a PX200 and a GS160.

The LI150 was the second manufactured for the film and was the one used in the famous scene where it is involved in a spectacular crash with a post van.

Subsequently repaired and now in fine form, the “Jimmy” scooter is valued at around £36,000.
