eBay watch: 1959 Sun Wasp 175cc scooter

Interesting collector's piece on eBay right now – and the bidding is currently at just 99 pence for this 1959 Sun Wasp 175cc scooter. Described as being in 'good running order' (not bad something over 50 years old), it's had a rough 'n' ready paint job that probably needs attending […]

eBay watch: 1960s Tiger Beat! magazine

Just noticed this quirky little thing on eBay – a copy of Tiger Beat! magazine from the 1960s. This July 1966 edition includes a special 'magazine inside a magazine' called 'Mod Mag', 19 pages edited in England and including something called From London With Luv, packing an exclusive column on […]

eBay watch: 1961 Vespa Sportique

A tasty-looking scooter on eBay right now, with this 1961 Vespa Sportique, which is currently at an equally-tasty price. According to the seller, the scooter was imported from Italy and authentically restored by Scooterworks in London in 2004. Since then it has been maintained by Scooterworks and is being sold […]

eBay watch: 1961 Vespa VBB scooter

eBay watch: 1960s Scooter magazines

Whilst looking for something completely different (as is always the case), I just found this small selection of Scooter and Three Wheeler magazine from the 1960s. There are six issues in total, five with a 'Buy It Now' of £12.50, but one issue at just 99p as part of a […]

eBay watch: 1960 Capri 80 scooter

A fine looking machine that's just clocked up 50 years on the planet – this Agrati Capri 80 scooter, which is on eBay right now. The seller claims to have had it since 2009, when it was a non-runner and has since done the work to get it back on […]

eBay watch: Generation X book

Bit of a bargain on eBay – the Generation X book by Charles Hamblett and Jane Deverson. We featured it in our five must-buy books feature some time back and as we mentioned then, Deverson was commissioned by Woman's Own to find out the thoughts of the youth of 1963/64. […]

Sunday Times: East End Faces on eBay

Here's something that looks quite interesting for not a lot of cash on eBay, a Sunday Times magazine from 1968 with the frontpage headline of East End Faces. According to the description, the cover story for this June 2nd issue was David Bailey taking photos of those East End Faces, […]
