Re: Vespa 50s

If it's the "small door" type (the one with the smaller engine door) they will be worth a bit. Would have thought it would fetch more in Europe to be honest.

Bajaj project "monkey on my back"

Thought I was done with scooters. Then I was overtaken by an air cooled RD400 and that smell hit me. Got goose bumps and started looking at YouTube videos of fast lambrettas and Vespas again. Then this happened http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d84/johndregg/Mobile%20Uploads/2017-02/AF4EC447-5F37-45...

Re: any had any bad experiences with the wire ringed SR pist

Been running an original sr190 with original piston for about 10 years. Only a small rattle on tick over. I like it.

Re: What a Racket!

Anybody got a dyno comparison between a kba type and one of the Carlos fandango BGM/MB type on the same engine? Did the magazine do one yet?

Re: Wassel Failure

When you ride someone else's scooter are the symptoms the same? Steel plate in the skull? East German pacemaker?

Re: What a Racket!

I fitted a kba clubman to my bike too. It makes a horrible racket, I love it!
