  2. So do I :)
  3. Buy it. You know you want to ;).
  4. I think I’m going to. I have wanted one since I sold mine in 1990. The cruciform piece broke apart in downtown traffic and locked up the back wheel. Some shade tree mechanic fixed it but it always made a clunking noise. Sold it to a kid from the Philippines. Saw him months later and he told me his dad had fixed it. Bent crank that needed straightening.

  6. If you do buy it, be careful where you source parts from, a lot of Asian aftermarket products are terrible quality. About 10 years ago the UK market was awash with imported scooters from Vietnam etc that looked great.

  7. Thank you. Sounds a lot like bus parts. This is an old scoot. Bumps, dents and scrapes. Looks like sh*t at 1000 yards.

    Crossed my mind but not for the minute, it it just drums and brakes or mudguards too?
  15. Mudguard should be fine, small frames are fitted with 10" hubs and rims as standard, with a smaller mudguard.

    Moving to 10" set up also gives options for a front disc brake, but with new forks from a PX or possibly a small frame PK,

    Probably no need if your are keeping it standard engine-wise.

  16. Talking disc brakes, Lambretta were way ahead of their time developing inboard disc brakes, with 4 venting grilles.

    I think they were fitted to the SX range. Must be 60 years old now.
