SHINY HAPPY PEO­PLE

Scootering - - Club Do’s & Events -

The cus­tom show at Mersea Is­land has al­ways been one of the main fea­tures of the rally, and this year was no dif­fer­ent. Al­though the com­peti­tors have to as­sem­ble and set-up in the two large ad­join­ing mar­quees by 9am (a bit early for some!), there was still a great mix­ture of ma­chines from restora­tions and ruster­a­tions to full blown cus­toms. This year for me it was very in­ter­est­ing to see the ma­jor tro­phies fought out be­tween two sep­a­rate ‘eras’ of glitz. Out­stand­ing 80s ma­chine Daz­zle was brought back to life with ‘Daz­zle 3’. A cou­ple of per­sonal favourites of mine, Ed­mund ‘Purest Green’ and a re­vamped Il­lu­sion 2 both stood out, and who could dis­count to­day’s ‘daddy’ Start Me Up, owned by ap­par­ently scooter­ing’s nicest bloke! Re­sults are be­low:
