Someone mentioned to me that some TV200 wheel rims have a Trojan stamp on them ??
I`m bewildered to be honest :D :) ??

Sounds like pub talk to me. Kind of like the mythical over bored TV175 to 200 conversion from the factory.

there was some connection between "Trojan" and Lambretta Concessionaires (Agg owned both?) but I've never heard of any Trojan "logos" appearing on Lambretta scooters.

Regards the "175/ 200 Factory conversions" mentioned above, likewise I've never heard that coming out of the factory in Milan.....however, I do recall TV175's being converted to approx 200cc's by official Lambretta dealers in Bristol- I would imagine this was a simple rebore and suitable piston, but the cylinder walls would be prone to warping etc. Perhaps, and it is a big perhaps, these "conversions" were well known to The Concessionaires and eventually had some impact on Agg asking for proper 200cc machines?? Who knows?

That's cool and I am happy to stand corrected. It's not often something new actually comes up. Maybe a chemical strip would be better than sanding? That stamping is already pretty lite.
