Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

Cheers Paul. Bought it for £500 when I was a student nearly 30 years ago and have rebuilt it a couple of times. Last time was about five years ago when it got the full engine and transmission. probably under 5 secs to 60. Nuts...

Re: Crikey its quiet in here ..iet in here...in here... here..

I'm trying - started a build thread. Takes a bit of effort to upload pics but it's worth it - it's there on a thread and easily found. I've done a couple of car builds a good few years ago when FB wasn't really around, and enjoyed doing it and it helped a lot of others doing the same thing. The grou...

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

Was sorting though my S2 rebuild kit for horncast and front guard beading to get on with proper dry build - I assume the beading between horncast and leggies runs right down past the bottom of the horncast in a single piece to the bottom of the front guard? and legshield outer beading (fat one) runs...

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

It isn't great with a silly-string MIG but managed to get something semi-decent on front and rear corners.

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

Also had a go at the naff cut-outs on the side panels - they're not that bad to be honest and are formed quite well, but they had these little annoying nicks out of each corner.

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

But it's now spot on - front struts and rear stays are original as far as I can tell, hence not wanting to chop it about too much.

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

Even though main crossmember was welded on on a jig, the welds had pullet it up a bit and so it wasn't level, so turned it upside down and cut a slot in the bottom and clamped it down and re-welded. https://i.postimg.cc/bvM5K217/IMG-6611.jpg Filled the gap a bit at the front as well as reinforcing t...

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

Very tempted last weekend to just cut all of the struts off and weld them higher, but I'm sure it's just the side panels being short so carrying on with the packing approach. Made these up over last couple of evenings. https://i.postimg.cc/pVD2J2HW/20190913-201035.jpg Plus front and rear ones I have...

Paddy Smith screen prints

Hiya I bought these maybe 15 years ago - (the late and great) Paddy Smith limited edition screen prints - Bank Holiday number 1 and 2. I think they were advertised in Scootering and I ordered a set. Had them proper framed and they've hung on the wall in two houses since then. Love them, but there's ...
