    Is that an actual spare wheel - on a scooter?

    Mine's on sorn in the shed, 1964 Li150. I've got a front panel and some rear foot boards to replace the much welded ones but they need paint. Next year probably and I might look round for a decent carb to replace the Indian Jetex on it.

  13. Scootopia used to do some decent replacements for Jetex, personally prefer Dellorto or Mikuni carbs

    I got one given when my bike packed in it was a 150cc with a 175 wildcat conversion on it. I fell of it twice once in the wet it slid out and off I came. second time cranked it over at speed on a bend and the floor was catching the road and off again . it handled rubbish but u could wind it up and it was off the clock at 70 mph :laughing:
     
  15. They must have had a scooter weekend at Butlins in Minehead last weekend as I passed loads of scooters heading in that direction.
    Always a bike man myself but alot of my mates were mods in the early eighties, out of the two I preferred the look of the Lambrettas over the Vespas.

  16. A lot people are surprised at how nippy they can be, genuine 100 mph Lambrettas aren't that rare these days

    You'd want gentleman bits of steel to ride one of them at the ton !
     
  18. Very tactfully put, I'd have said "balls of burnished bronze"

    I was given an SX175? when I was 14, got it running and roadworthy so the old man took for an MOT, it passed and he promptly "borrowed" it to commute to work on :laughing:
