BRIGHTON MOD WEEKENDER 2021
HUNDREDS OF SCOOTERS BUZZED INTO BRIGHTON THIS AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND
This year felt like a celebration of all things Mod than any other, after the enforced separation of the year leading up to this August Bank Holiday. The whole of Brighton was alive with Vespas, Lambrettas, parkas and fox tails and what a great sight it was! So nice to see so many enthusiasts enjoying a fun weekend out with a real party atmosphere.
There were many scooterists who had had their bikes for a while – including one guy we spoke to who had bought his new in 1964 and taken great care of it ever since! A piece of history still running fine today just a bit of TLC along the way has kept in in peak condition.
There, near to the Palace pier, was the Quadrophenia Union Jack Scooter itself – apparently, originally hand painted for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977 and used, amongst various other appearances, by The Who at events since.
Plus many more scooters, with original riders and owners and modern mods of the younger generations proudly buzzing around. All in all a great event with a celebratory feel and even some nice weather for the seaside! Hear are some pictures from the weekend.
