brilliant ray, nice to see you kept it all these years and still enjoying it, there are places that do helmets to your own design, i think one was advertising in scootering magazine,

enjoy your reborn scoot and ride safe ;)

Hi
was just going to take scoot for MOT when read "Scooterist" and spotted section about problem with series1 front hubs breaking where pivot pin is secured and locking brake.Checked mine and as scoot was early1960 it was fitted with suspect hub,article went on to say it was madness to ride with them now so either replace with later modified or weld stengthing web,
so hub isaway awaiting said welding

Yes,Dave Clarkes the man.He used to sell Lambrettas/Vespas so knows all about poor lighting. You got a bit of running in to do as well.
