    Is it 1960′s. Some of the background features such as the vans and the clothes and hair of the other people leads me this is more likely 1980′s mod revival.

    I think you might be right, its all a bit too tidy for the 60s as I remember them. Scooter still looks awful though, must have been a handful to ride

    Yes, mainly mid-’80s stuff on a ’70s scoot, i have a mod mag featuring its creation around ’84. This is a great site with outstanding pics, but many aren’t what they pretend to be.
    Illusion, trickery, and misinformation are practically unavoidable in photography.
    You’re not really in a time machine…

    These photos were taken around 1980/ 81 I believe the lad was from Weymouth (Dorset, uk)
