Re: Indian Lambretta Kelvinator:

Are there any of these wacky indian machines in the UK?
I quite like them,it is good to see something different from all the indian GP's. Almost as good as a Lamby Polo

Re: Pinasco 177 with reedvalve

I think the carb is similar to the mikuni super BN series of carbs and the tillotson , they are used on jet skis, karts and I think snowmobiles.
I think the chopper Pride, the DAC's and Richard Taylor have used this type of carb.
Is there any news on price and power output on this kit?

Re: matt black

While you are in wilkinsons buy a set of their gloss rollers. They made a brilliant job of putting on my Nato green matt army paint.

Re: Fuel Gauge

the gauge is the easy bit, lots of different styles to choose from. its the sender in the tank that is the tricky part to find. one on ebay for a boat application that is adjustable for tank depth seems pretty good.
not sure what sender will fit in a standard tank due to restricted room
