Looking through this old thread - sounds to me like if you are in the UK every workplace has at least one mod and local transport is full of people with Weller haircuts and silk scarves...

Where I live (Germany) I can recall only two sightings in the last twenty years outside of Weller concerts and the like and both were in Munich pubs on the same street but quite some time apart. One of them couldnīt have been anything but a mod but the second was more British style but with a twist, I wasnīt so sure about him. He was english speaking and with a group of people so might have been visiting, itīs an area with lots of hotels.

My experience of UK is that you see loads walking around with Weller haircuts, plenty of vintage scooters and on FB Mods galore.
Go to an event and it's the same faces.
I've even seen people turn up to an event on scooters and hang about outside rather than go in, I'm guessing they see it as an excuse to meet like minded scooter people rather than for the music & clobber. Horses for courses.

I think Mark's comments are pretty valid. There are many sub-groups of what people can call 'Mod' and if using a Venn Diagram there are those that fit in all sections whereas others prefer one or just a couple of the aspects of it. However given the years it's all been out there for people to take part in all are valid to some extent.

A fair point Mark,

Good to you posting again and if I'm not mistaken you were a veteran of the old forum?

Funnily enough I was looking through the introduce yourself thread yesterday,loads of original forumees who no longer post on here...on that 2facedbook no doubt...I hate it on there lasted a few months.

Aye I hate Facebook for a number of reasons but particularly because it has absolutely murdered so many online communities.

There was a bunch of us would go to the Essence festival every July 4th weekend and some became tight friends in real life, all through connecting via the Essence forum which no longer exists. Sure, I can keep up with those I was closest to via e mail etc but we used to have daily banter among a sizeable group which helped a dull day at work go by and the build up of energy and momentum as the weekend approached was class.

Black stingy brim, blue beat hat, three quarter black leather coat, white Oxford shirt... on an electric scooter (and I'm not talking about a Vespa or Lammy)!  ;D. I didn't even have the time to take a look at his shoes!
