MARGARET FARQUHAR, RIP
25 July 2014
Margaret Farquhar, a leading light in the Vespa world, has passed away in her sleep. Her dedication and promotion of the Vespa marque under the auspices of both the VCB and the VVC is almost without equal. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
Her funeral will take place at Oakley Wood Crematorium in Leamington Spa (date to be confirmed). A full obituary will appear in Classic Scooterist, issue 99.
Halfords expands bike product range
23 July 2014
Halfords has expanded its range of motorcycle and scooter products. This will include helmets, batteries, storage boxes, wet weather riding gear, protective covers and security locks.
Halfords category manager Paul Tomlinson said: “Halfords has always regarded motorists on two wheels as an important part of its customer base and had been selling a variety of motorcycle and scooter products for over 60 years. Our latest range comprises more than 250 core products specifically for this market and we believe that Halfords’ combination of accessibility - there’s a Halfords store within 20 minutes for 90% of the UK population - value and a welcoming store environment will appeal to this new generation of riders, The market for motorcycle and scooter products has fragmented, many independents have shut down and manufacturer-specific dealers have failed to adapt – creating an environment that can be intimidating for new scooter riders”.
