Re: My current Lambrettas

Yes, would be nice to hear a paragraph on each one. Power, torque, usability, riding experience etc, which is harder or easier to upkeep. Any problems you experience.

I can get the scooter rider to autograph it for you if you want? I think he charges £10 for signed pictures but it’s £20 for canvas cos he has to use a special pen.
Ha, I hope you kicked their butts that day, cracking pic

You have PM
