Re: Gearbox Rebuild

Have you fitted new bearing track in end plate?

If so, make sure it's pressed fully home.

Re: glacial paced lambretta hotel

I recognise that bike. Did you enjoy your lie-in on Sunday morning?

Re: Council Estate Custom

Lovely. I used to hate things like this, but I've come to appreciate them now.

So much so that I'll finish one myself on Thursday night.

What motor have you got in.?

Looks lovely and I'm in about the same situation myself with an LI. I'll bet you wouldn't be doing this if Shaun was still around though 😢.

Re: BLOA dead?

I know a lad who has 6 lambrettas and one vespa. Does that mean he's at a scooter rally whenever he goes into the garage?

Re: BLOA dead?

Not much chance of that, I've not seen any photos of any of the "rallies" he's held since 12 people turned up at Sywell over 12 months ago LOL. Only 12 really? Or are you just knocking him. That's a genuine question by the way. If you're right, I feel a bit sorry for him despite it being his own do...
