If you need a classic Vespa or Lambretta scooter for a film or commercial shoot or perhaps as a prop in a photographic shoot, then Retrospective Scooters are available to help you. As London's leading scooter restoration business, we have been providing vintage motor scooters to the film, TV and photography industry since 2000.
We have a large selection of scooters models and colours in many different formats to choose from. Our bikes include perfect examples of scooters from the 1950's, through the Mod era of the 1960's and onwards. All of our scooters have been faithfully restored to their original specification to ensure your shoot looks 100% authentic.
Our scooters are also often used as set dressing for events, parties and themed shop launches. We have even been asked to provide bikes for weddings too. With our huge wealth of contacts in the scooter scene, we are also able to provide some very special bikes with riders if needed.
Transport of the scooters can be arranged to anywhere in the UK, we can also provide staff members to assist and advise on set .
Prices for our scooter hire services vary by bike type, length of hire and location. We can discuss this with you in detail when you get in touch, but roughly around £200 inclusive per day, two or more scooters can hired at a discounted rate. If a staff member is required to ride and move the scooter around for you during the day then there is an additional charge of £180 inclusive per day.
