Ive been messing about with this design for a bit now and finally got off my bum and finished it , motorcycle type clutch plates are used and larger diameter springs , ive managed to get 6 plates with a slight mod to the sidecasing but this would be overkill for most lambrettas as the 5 plate would cope no problem ( this needs no mods ) , the 6 plate is off to mark in norwich to put in his dac (38bhp ) to push it to its limits and to find any problems ( or not i hope !!!) , as i see it the 6 plate should be required by very few ,ie dac , 30+ bhp motors with the 5 being ample .................

below is the machined spider to take the motorcycle springs with the lambretta ones next to it ......

Ive tried to do this as cheap as possible using normal parts and fingers crossed will prove successful ... pm for more info ;)

Looks real nice that!!

Can you post a picture of a plate against a typical lambretta plate to compare the actual surface areas....?

Cheers Adam.

hi dan , about £230 with an exchange sprocket , ie a series 1/2/3 with the riveted castle or £ 250 outright which compared to other motorcycle types comes in at the bottom end of the market
