I think its a bad idea, as you shouldnt run your wheels off set and if an mot tester found this, it would fail.

file engine case! seems a bit extreme i'll to have think on that one. just out of curiosity what is the thickness of a lambretta casing? the more i think of this the more i don't like it (sorry lam46) thanks for info.

the thicker hub cone washer is the way to go,or just perhaps two std ones.......
and a bit more PSI in that tyre....... :D

I assume you mean 32psi and not 23psi in the rear tyre?

Are you using tubeless or wide rims?

I'm not sure you'd see the offset of the washer(s), is the Lambretta geometry that accurate and would it cause any layshaft or handling issues??
