From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A scooterboy is a member of a specific subculture based around riding motor scooters.
The subculture originated in the United Kingdom in the 1980s among Vespa and Lambretta riders. It developed out of the mod, northern soul, punk, psychobilly, goth and skinhead cultures, becoming a separate and distinct group.
Characteristics and history

Unlike the mods, who often customize their scooters with 1960s-style paint jobs and accessories (such as extra mirrors), scooterboys generally use a more modern style of paint work, sometimes adding murals depicting events or music, or in some cases turning them into cutdowns.
In the UK, scooterboys typically attend scooter rallies in seaside towns, with attendance numbers usually in the thousands. Rallies usually involve camping, watching bands, dancing to DJs, drinking and participating in various scooter-related activities. In the 1980s, scooterboys listened to various styles of music, including ska, 2 Tone, psychobilly, punk rock, Oi!, and northern soul. A few popular songs at rallies in the 1980s included "The Snake" by Al Wilson", "Should I Stay Or Should I Go?" by The Clash, "Skinhead Love Affair" by Bad Manners", "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen, The huge number of scooter clubs that sprung up around this movement best identified the scooterboy movement.
Over the next ten years, the scooterboy subculture spread around the world, largely due to magazines such as Scootering and Scooter Scene. In the 2000s, there has been a sizable scooterboy (or as they are now known, scooterist) scene in many countries, notably Germany, the United States, France and Italy.
There are no rigid fashion rules among scooterboys, although many have resembled punk-influenced-skinheads. However, many have had either normal hairstyles, psychobilly-style quiffs or flattops, or dreadlocks. Scooterboys rejected the more formal clothing styles of the mods and traditionalist skinheads (such as suits). Typical Scooterboy clothing includes MA-1 bomber jackets, military surplus parkas, and leather or denim jackets (or vests). It is common for scooterboys to sew patches onto their jackets showing the scooter rallies they have attended, the clubs they have belonged to and the brand of scooter they prefer.
Many scooterboys have worn Dr. Martens or military surplus boots and Ben Sherman or Fred Perry shirts, showing some throwback to their mod/skinhead roots, although T-shirts with the wearer's club emblazoned across the front or back were most popular at parties and scooter rallies.
