Last update from Sponsors and Supporters:
We are in the process of getting sponsors, large and small. We need anything from riding gear, tools, parts, various gadgets and electronics, transport, camping gear, medical equipment, clothing, insurance, serives, and more. In addition we are raising funds to various aid projects in Africa. In 1980 Piggio spendt something like 30 million Euros in today’s money on their Rally Dakar. We try to do it for less than 1% of this, If you think you can h in any way, please contact us.

Loxkel is the official Vespa importer in Norway. Loxkel sponsor us with various parts, which we are grateful for as this is quite a big cost for us. In addition, original parts outperform reproductions nine out of ten times. Thank you Loxkel!
Restless Scooter Club
Our scooter club does not have much to spare, but their support is immense. We want to thank the club for letting us run the x-mas party bar and keep all of the profits (and for all our friends who drank like Vikings). This is money that could have otherwise come to good use for the club, so we are especially greatful for this awesome generosity
Oslo Scooter Central
Oslo Scooter Central is a loyal contributor to the scooter scene in Norway. They housed Restless’s christmas party free of charge. Without this, there would not have been any bar surplus to give to Bamako By Vespa. So, although not a direct sponsor, we are thankful and will grant Oslo Scooter Central the honorable mention as if they were.
