I’ve heard another book is out due out late 2018, great news.
I hope it breaks things down to touring, racing specs etc more tech the better 😎

I agree, great news. The Stickys manual was a godsend in my house for helping decode the world of lambretta.

Agreed both volumes so far have been an absolute godsend. For version 3 I'd like to see coverage of:
the various 'performance' clutch options,
Anti Dive setup,
5speed gearboxes maybe?
DC supply options,
Lighting upgrades

I'm sure there are more 8-)

If it is going to be out in the Spring, I am pretty certain there must already be a plan as to what new stuff is going to be covered.

Personally, I’d love to see it cover the Vega and J Range, like the old Workshop Manual does. But, that would turn it into something approaching a 1973 Telephone Book !

I'm hoping for a more "stand alone" book, featuring upgrades and alterations. Books one and two do a good enough job for a basic strip down and rebuild.

Yes, I'm looking forward to the new book too. The other two have been invaluable.

He has also left SULK.

Agree, a basic engine rebuild never alters a great deal. As mentioned, 5 speed boxes, clutch upgrades, out of box tuning upgrades, etc
