2018 Jamboree Raffle bike build

Recommended Posts

The 2018 Lambretta Jamboree raffle bike build is currently underway.

It started with a pre-mod Series 3 LI125 that had been sitting for quite a while.

Build ideas were debated before deciding that a "Cascadia" themed scooter would be perfect for this Jamboree.

Here is the scooter as the Seattle Crew picked her up. We'll add additional posts to update the progress. It's really an incredible process, and it couldn't be done without the support of (in no particular order)

Andiamo Let's Go!

And all of the people who have volunteered their time wrenching the last few Sundays.

The initial tear down of the scooter took place in Tacoma at Andiamo Let's Go! From there it was sent down to Portland where everything was completely taken apart and prepared for media blasting and powdercoating.

The color scheme is based on the Cascadia flag. The majority of the scooter is white, and green, blue is also used, mainly on the decals.

The graphics and decals on the scooter are courtesy of Tom Carey.

Nicley done.

 

Was/is that a riverside? I see what looks like an extra badge hole on the legshield above the Lambretta badge.

Mike, I'm not sure of it is a Riverside. I know it's an early one.

We've had a pretty productive week. Last Sunday we had a build session at my place in Oregon. 

I've also had a few days off work, and was able to spend a few hours wrenching on the scooter in the mornings.

We did fire her up on Sunday, she started up 2nd kick, the compression feels good, and took her for a quick ride up the street. Has some pep to her for sure.

Here are a few pictures, will post more in a few days.
