I’ve turned my mobility scooter into a Lambretta lookalike – it drives women wild, says pensioner


A PENSIONER is lapping up the attention after turning his mobility scooter into a Lambretta lookalike.

Terry Heath, 68, has kitted out his four-wheeler with mirrors, lights and flags straight out of 1979 mod flick Quadrophenia.

The great-grandad claims he drives women wild when he rides to the bookies.

The retired diamond-toolmaker said: “I’ve had two young women in their 30s come up to me — one of them kissed me on the cheek and told me it was a babe magnet.”

“It gives me immense pleasure and it clearly gives other people immense pleasure, too.”

Now even his pals at the betting shop are scrambling to soak up some of the attention.

Terry said: “Everyone here loves it too.

“They see the looks I’m getting and they are always asking if they can have a go on it.”

The former mod has spent £1,000 customising the Kymco Midi, including a chrome rack and a “WHO RU” plate, a nod to the 1978 Who album.

But wife Beverley, 67, is less keen on his scooter, which can hit 8mph.

Terry, from Birmingham, said: “She’s not happy about how much I’ve spent on it.

“She says she’s scared to death by the thing.”
