Welcome to the original Torbay Mods Scooter Club as formed in 2007 by Paul, Mike and Stan
WE ARE A FORWARD THINKING SCOOTER CLUB THAT MOVES WITH THE TIMES
TORBAY MODS SCOOTER CLUB was formed by Paul, Mike and Stan in 2007 for riders of Lambretta or Vespa scooters in South Devon. Mike left the area to live in sunny Cornwall and sadly our dear friend Stan passed away in 2011 after a valiant fight against cancer.
CELEBRATION: This year our club will be celebrating its 10th anniversary with a one day Scooter Show on Saturday 15th July 2017 including Arena with Custom Scooter Show, Mini Ride Out (around Torbay), Trade stalls and activities on Paignton Green. Also, there will be evening entertainment at nearby Murphys Roadhouse provided by the fabulous VINYL AVENGERS and the popular band The 5.15s. THIS IS NOT A SCOOTER RALLY but plenty of accommodation in the area if traveling and wanting to stay over. Camp site HERE or Hotel Accommodation for Friday and Saturday night can be found on booking.com or search Travelodge/Paignton. FACE BOOK PAGE
All scooterists and scooter clubs are welcome to join us on Paignton Green
Invite: We would like to meet anyone with a Mod style or standard looking scooter who are interested in joining our club for shows, ride outs and rallies. You don’t have to live in Torbay to be a member of Torbay Mods SC as long as you own a scooter and can join us now and again for ride outs etc. Apart from Torbay, we also have members from Plymouth, Newton Abbot, Bovey Tracey, Kingsteignton, Dawlish, Totnes, and South Brent. So come and join in the fun and show off your scooters just as we did in the 60s and 70s.
If you see any of us on the road give us a toot or wave and we’re sure to wave back.If you’re interested in joining, returning to the scene or just want to have a look at OUR SCOOTERS then you’re very welcome to come along to one of our meetings/ride out on a Wednesday night or you can meet some of us on Soul/Mod Nights at Murphys Road House, Paignton where The Vinyl Avengers will be playing great classics from the past. Always check with us first – CONTACT PAGE Also, we now have over 30 members (as at February 2017) and many are on our facebook page which you can visit once you become a member
Auto rider? For 2017 we are now a ‘SCOOTER CLUB’ embracing all types of scooters whether 2 stroke or 4 stroke. Many people ask us if they can join with a modern retro auto scooter, well if for example its a SCOMADI, LML, LEXMOTO VIENNA, MODENA/MILANO OR VESPA GTS model it does have a big hint of a classic scooter in its design, so we welcome them although some shows we enter they may not be suitable for displaying. We do not like to disappoint so if you have one of these scooters and you join because you want to be a part of our club and join in the fun then that’s fine with us!
BELOW: Our club were filmed by SW1TV in November 2013 and this was part of a short film not shown by them. Some of the people from our club that took part on their scooters are Tony Hemmings, Mark Broadhurst, Sid Cashin, Paul Grant, Terry Styles, Mike King, John Parr, Russell Harris, Martin Pomeroy, Steve Miller, Ray Waller and Paul & Janet. Some friends joined us and they were Daisy from Lost Souls SC, Will Carter, Mike Phillips and Sarah (Pillion on Mark’s scooter).

As you can see from this video we have all types of scooters in our club and we had great fun riding round Paignton like it was Quadrophenia! It even includes a Post Office van which we managed to avoid!.
