David John Wyburn, a builder from Southwest England, has been hailed for his remarkable scooter replicas, earning him the honorific "The Oracle of Quadrophenia." He considers this Lambretta among his best work, and Jony and Marc are plainly smitten with this creation, which is both a celebration of pop culture and a powerful reminder of "Quadrophenia," a film that played a formative role as they were growing up and experimenting with design. More than just a means of transportation, the scooter represents reaction and rebellion, fundamental motivations for design. Like the Harley Davidson "Captain America" chopper from "Easy Rider," this scooter is a model of customisation, an important form of popular design and one with tremendous resonance for Jony and Marc: both of them spent much of their childhood tinkering away in the garage.
