You heard right! This month, it’s not just Wrench Day… It’s a birthday party! One of our club members is having a birthday on Wrench Day, so we’re all going to crash his house to celebrate. January 21st, Wrench Day at Jeddy’s place. Wrenching starts at 10am, with cake and Orange Crush for all! While supplies last.

We had a very busy Wrench Day, this past Sunday! Club members fixed a speedometer on a Vespa LX150, pulled apart a rusty old P200 engine, did some work on a Lambretta TV175 engine, and a deal was finally made between two members on a 2001 Yamaha Zuma! Good work, everyone!
It rained a bit, but the club still managed to get some work done, and some of us still went on a short ride to get something to eat. All in all, a successful day.
Speaking of Wrench Day, however, another Wrench Day is coming up on May 8! This is a very special Wrench Day being hosted by our friend Matt, owner of Scooter Trap on Virginia Dr, over in Winter Park! If you have something you want worked on, check out the post on our forum for details.
We hope to see everyone there! And thanks, Matt, for allowing us to mess up your shop for a day!
On Saturday, the club headed out to Daytona for BIKE WEEK! It was a long ride, but the weather was beautiful (During the day, at least), and the club members who rode had a great time. We rolled through the vintage motorcycle auction in Deland, then headed out to Daytona to run through main street. This month’s ride turned out to be an all-day affair, but it was a great day for cruising around central Florida! If you missed out, you can always check out the video, too!!!
Sunday was another busy WRENCH DAY! A few new bikes showed up, including a CPI GTR50 and a vintage Bajaj with a P200 engine. Headlights were fixed, engines were tuned, and front forks were dropped. All in all, the club was fairly successful, and a number of scooters rode away better than how they rode in. Most, but not all. But, that’s another story!
