fruit salad

A few months back I was looking for a new project and had been temped by a series 2 on the Lambretta Finder website, then I spotted this :-

The only downside was someone had sprayed over the rusty legshields, rear running boards and front mudguard.

A few bits had well and truly seized or broken.

Once those bits were sorted I started the rebuild.

Hidden semi hydraulic to try and keep a standard-ish look

For the engine I decided to go for the rt225 kit with a bgm 60x110 crank, bgm dc ignition and flywheel and bgm exhaust. For the gearbox I went for the AF clo5e ratio and their cassette clutch, topped off with a 28mm delly

Now it just needs running in, when I'm allowed out of the house :(

Looks very good, glad you used the panels as is.
Have you had chance to test the Oiltek remote master cylinder?

yes, managed to do about 30 miles before we went in to lock-down. I've used one before, can be tricky to bleed and not as sharp as a full hydraulic set up

Thanks for the positive comments, and as I can't ride it at the moment thought I'd take a few pictures in the garden this afternoon
