I've known Gary for some years now. I met him through Dave Seah. Gary has done a bunch of awesome stuff in his life, and recently he's turned is attention into restoring and creating his own fabricated custom parts for old scooters, particularly old vintage Lambretta scooters. He creates custom trim, molding, accessories and more for these little babies turning them into custom one-of-a-kind scooters.
UK magazine Scootering was going to be doing a feature on two of his recently restored/custom scooters and he hired me to take some photographs.
To say these scooters are gorgeous is an understatement. No matter where you look (or don't even think to look) there are little custom things that he's created that compliment, yet don't overdo, the design of the scooter. And he fabricates all these parts at his home. It's really impressive. The craftsmen ship is pretty outstanding.
