Lambretta sip rims

My sip tubeless rims with cont twist sport tyres hold air like a sieve. Anyone have a solution who has had the same problem? Is some sort of inner tube gloop the answer?
Thanks.

Re: Bgm dampers on turning mudguard

Just fitted some dampers to my scoot with turning mudguard using some lth alloy top mounts. Took horn cast off and the mudguard fixing screws and clamp and managed it, even though the very long damper mounting screws fit from the outside.
Wouldn't want to do it if I had a decent paint job though.

Winter model headlight rim

I seem to remember someone on the forum said that the "Bosatta" headlamp rim is the closest fit for a winter model headset?
If so, anyone know the part number and a UK stockist?
Thanks.

Sanded them on a flat surface and gave the disc a light clean with wet and dry. Did about 60 miles and it's all good. Changed the brake fluid as well as it ...

Lth disc brake

Been using a dirty sanchez (mmw/lth) front disc brake for about 500 miles and it's been brilliant. Problem now is the brake Judders like hell when I brake, as if it's grabbing on and off. Everything on the front end is as it should be with no play in bearings and links etc. Pads are hardly worn, dis...

Asbestos brake linings.

Bought some nos original rear brake shoes. I'm hoping they might actually fit and work. They are supposed to be the later gp ones. Will they contain asbestos?
Thanks.

Re: BSG 305 50+bhp

Great weekend, probably wouldn't be allowed to happen over here. Riding the twin cylinder prototypes was unreal. That wheelie went on for ages!
