This group had a relatively high level of disposable income and held the opinion that the world owed them a good time. They would dress in the latest fashions, dance to their own type of music and live life as they saw fit. In summer, they could often be seen in huge groups wearing fur trimmed parkas, and riding motor scooters (Lambrettas or Vespas usually) to the South Coast of the UK where they would repeadedly enter into violent battles along the foreshore with Rockers (Greasers) and usually winning out through sheer weight of numbers and an often almost suicidal desire to 'prove' themselves.
