You missed something off the end of the topic title. Modern retro scooters.....,are wank
Easy to say that, but what do you think Lambrettas would be like now if they were still in business?? That Django is quite nice considering it bows to the classic lines but with all the modern accoutrements.

Modern Retro Scooters

Which of the new modern scooters most closely resembles an original 50/60's scooter? Saw one the other day done in red and white which looked very retro but it was being ridden so couldn't get a close up. I already know about the Dutch (sic) retro Lambretta thing which has been on here :shock: :roll:

Re: Uni rear hub cone

That would be right. You don't want the splines coming right through the hub, as when you add the washer and nut and tighten down, you won't be getting the hub to tighten on the shaft correctly. Also, make sure the split in the cone is directly on top of one of the splines as in Sticky's manual.

Re: SSC Cassette Clutch

Would have thought that if you've tightened the springs right down, then they cannot put pressure on the corks /steels to bind against each other ??

Re: whats the verdict on 24mm PWK carbs ?

I've been running a 28-30mm OKO PWK on my Avanti kitted Injun for some years now without issue. I've done all the mods to the carb (ground out the float stop in the bottom of the float bowl, set the float height correctly, binned the see through float bowl as they react to ethanol and swell up, and ...

Re: which sealant to use

"plus does anybody use sealant around the exhaust copper gasket as it always seems to leak slightly." I always use the solid copper exhaust gaskets and linnish them on a piece of glass with wet 'n dry taped to it to make sure there are no high spots on the copper gasket face either side. Also do sam...

Re: Side stand question

Can't see the point in having two stands !! If you fit a side stand, you will need to weld in a strengthening bar between the struts on the outside edge to prevent distortion. If you think it looks sexier leaning over slightly when parked then go for it. I'd just stick to the original as its more st...
