Hi peeps , I wont attempt to write in French if that’s ok- my English is bad enough!, anyway all we English people know that all French people can secretly speak prefect English anyway Wink
Here is my entry for the build off, I will be doing some of the welding and fabrication on pauls (lateagain) cutdown and prob steves (pav) chop to , so my entry is not going to be so radical! In fact bodywork is going to be totally standard , but I think a full frame, a cutdown and a chop lambretta from one club will work nicely.
I wont embarrass myself with a drawing of what im aiming to achieve but heres some pictures of the style of 60s/70s shed built run-what-you-brung race/competition lambrettas that im trying to emulate













1963 li125 retro racer-





as you can see its already a rolling chassis, the story behind it is that i had a tv sprayed 'Bianco Nuovo' about 3 years ago and i gave the sprayer loads of extra panels/ headset/mudguard/forks i had lying around from job lots and prevois rebuilds aswell- when i got them back i realised i almost had enough parts to build another lambretta- i just needed a frame to build them on to! so thats exactly what i did- brought a frame and had it powdercoated (frame loop sprayed with rattle cans) and started to build it about a year ago however my (business)work got in the way and it hasnt been touched for sometime so i thought this biuld off would give me a kick up the arse.....




so its a bit of a bitza- late sx 'push in' forks, serveta side panels etc, its also going to have a mix of newly (horncasing headset etc) painted bodyparts mixed with old patina'd used body parts (legsheild, toolbox door etc)

Hi Nobby

Good to hear from you and your new project! Can't wait to see what will be the result.
What engine do you plan to build for this? As fast as your Supertune?


Do you also plan to custom Pav's glasses to make one of your famous "rally evening special sunglasses"???

salut laurent ,
no its not going to be as quick as my supertune ts1!, i am still going to use the small block li125 casing, but with my old 'standard-out of the box' imola 185 kit that used to be on my '69 gp125 about 10 years ago-

with a 'reaper' centre squish gp125 head-

old af 58mm crank out of my supertune (i fitted a 60mm stroke crank about 18months ago)
with a 28 phbh and a sito ancillotti

and in there somewhere is a italian gp200 gearbox and sprockets/chain!

i have all the parts lying round already, just going to need some clutch plates, bearing and seals


yes i will be 'customising' pavs glasses if he doesnt pick them up soon!

Ouch... that barrel looks like it fell out of the hands of Mr LateAgain... sorry Nobby mes Amigo.
Think it was the same evening you dropped a hammer on the TV200 panel in primer. Bejeeeeeezus.

Laurent, Nobby and I were looking thru the blue box one eve to find a front sprocket I think, and we found these gears we didnt understand... had to take ourselves back a few years to remember Vespa gearboxes, as we were counting the teeth.

Looking good stuff Nobmeister...
I'm still trying to pinch the louvres from work. Very Happy
