Re: Scootopia's Latest Verison Mounts

I have some myself. But unfortunately haven't got around to fitting them yet.

Re: Tyre Choices

Ouch! Glad to hear you lived to fight another day. Must admit I've run Conti Twist tyres and always thought they were a good compromise between grip and wear. They seem to have lasted well enough in any case. The trouble is though that they can change the source of a tyres manufacture sometimes, so ...

Re: Veglia Speedo

Re-ranged? If you mean changing it somehow I'm not sure why you would bother. You don't see that at all with the speedo face in place.

Re: Stainless or plated fixings?

Hmmm... I have used stainless in the past for certain items where it would seem to make sense. But I've never gone overboard for it to the extent that I would fit out an entire scooter with it. Maybe that's the key.

Re: Oh I've had it.

Yeah there comes a time, maybe there not for you? but a modern auto really takes the stress out of Scootering and once someone like yourself has been there done it and got all the medals why worry?, you got nothing left to prove, just embrace and relax... I'd go along with that. All the pleasure wi...

The Next Project

Here's an interesting one... Well, to me anyway. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49299359801_32e968d32d_k.jpg IMG_20191230_1445426 by Neville Watkins , on Flickr A very early S3 TV175. Looks like it might have been grey at one time and somebody has blown over the loop. Possibly beneath the panel...

Re: Clark’s of Nechells lambretta cables?

Funnily enough I had never heard of them until recently. But yours is the second picture I have seen of Clarks cables in almost as many days.

Stainless or plated fixings?

Forget about Europe and all that. This is one of the most important questions of our time. Some prefer stainless fixings, others don't. I'm not entirely sure why. Something that doesn't rust would seem reasonable. Or is it just a question of authenticity?

There's only so many times that gearing can be explained, and where to get the best exhaust.

Re: What is wrong with people?

I feel your pain. But, as you say, it is the same everywhere. I wish it wasn't so, because I enjoy the forums. Not so much now, obviously. I don't think it's entirely down to FB, but it does mirror the way a lot of people think. I think there is also a general lethargy in the scooter world. We are m...
