ALAN LEGGE, THE OWNER’ S STORY

Scootering - - Hellboy -

“Andy Lines of Slick Scooter Ser­vices in Stroud orig­i­nally built this scooter and it had changed hands a few times be­fore I got it. Af­ter rid­ing it for a short time it was stripped down, the en­gine was a bit tired so it was swapped for a fully re­built P200 lump. The forks and a few other parts went to the chromers, while the orig­i­nal paint­work had some art­work added and the scoot went un­der the name of Bit­ter Fin­gers. It picked up a few tro­phies here and there and I was quite happy with it. But then a chance en­counter with a cus­tom painter changed all that. Percy’s Bad­brush Dezines works in the same vil­lage where I live. He saw the chop, I saw his work and we agreed that a Hell­boy theme would really suit the chop. You only live once; ‘Let’s do it,’ I said. So once again the chop was stripped, var­i­ous parts were pur­chased. Some new twisted forks were even­tu­ally sorted and the art­work was han­dled by Percy, who I must say kept me in the loop and worked tire­lessly to cre­ate ex­actly what I wanted. When you give this guy some­thing to copy that’s ex­actly what you get. It was fin­ished at the be­gin­ning of 2015 and so far it has taken over a dozen firsts, in­clud­ing Best paint (Llan­dudno), Best chop (DISC 30) and Best cus­tom Vespa (IOW) to name a few.”
