    Hi, I wanted to wish all of you & all who you know and love the very best. This Covid-19 outbreak has put the world on pause. Perhaps some of you might be feeling the full effects. I just wanted to say that I'm thinking of us all. I've said some prayers to bless us all. Keep the faith!! Keep Strong!! Keep your eye trained on the sunrise!! If you're able, let your hobbies feed you during this time. I hope to share a beer and story with you some day. Perhaps at the next Lammy Jammy. This art is my way of saying Keep Strong and Keep the Faith!!!

    It’s a bummer that they can’t keep it together anymore. I don’t know much about their problems other than they aren’t selling like they’d like them to be. if I had to guess there’s a few factors involved. $, the people with money to buy are not interested in the HD lifestyle and competition by other makes, there are a lot of options Regulations have affectively shut down the custom tuning market. in CA the California air resource board has made it illegal for shops to modify motorcycle exhausts for new bikes. CA is a stupid huge market and affects everything else. Sorry. I could be FOS but that’s how I see it.

    Some very bad news and some good news. =( I work in design & production and have been doing my best in my spare time to get this bike ready. However as a result of the China Corona virus situation, 2 companies I produce content for have been deeply affected in the areas of logistics and manufacturing. Dealing with this crisis has taken up a LOT of my time. Between the painting, bodywork and giving the motor a full service. In the given time available and my work load it is extremely unlikely that I will have my Lambretta ready in time for the Rally. Thus the reason why I have not registered yet. I am extremely upset by all of this and was super looking forward to riding with you lot. The good news is that I can not pass a chance up to be a part of the rally in some way this year. On Saturday the 25nd I wish to pop down with equipment in hand and (If permission is granted by the club heads/members) film some of the bikes, including footage of the ride down to Marineland. If allowed to do this, in return I want to provide Rally attendees with a photo of their bike and also put together a short film documenting the Rally/ bikes around St Augustine and Saturday's ride down A1A. This video would be given to the club as a promotional to use as they like to help promote Lambretta club usa to other Lambretta owners and enthusiasts who may not be aware of the club's events and vibrant community. The 2021 Rally looks like a go for my bike, depending on its location and my current work load. By that time I will certainly have the ol girl up to spec again. I am friends with the owners of the popular 2CV Hotel & Isetta Inn in Savannah. They are exotic auto collectors and are profoundly interested in attracting the club heads to consider Savannah as a future Rally destination for 2021. A Savannah or Charleston 2021 destination would be absolutely fantastic as two cities layout provide a very bike friendly setting.

    Hello fellas. Mike is correct in this instance. The single green wire I have drawn all on its own, is the kills switch wire. I check continuity and it is a direct link. So I'm sure that this wire connects to terminal 1 on the coil. The twin green wires in the main harness?? i have no clue what they are. I'll follow Mikes suggestion and run the solid red to terminal 1 on the coil. The rest all makes since. Thank you both for taking the time to read this and offering your feed back. I really appreciate it. Without you both, I'd be stuck fearing that I'd Smoke the regulator. Please stay healthy and I wish you and your families are blessed with good health while we deal with this Covid-19 outbreak. I hope to meet you both some day, we'll enjoy a pint (or several). Cheers.

    ha! On my old TV it was separate wires which joined in the junction box. Probably a modification someone had done at some point...

    there is only 1 green wire from the kill switch to the ignition coil. If you put a meter on the ends it will read 0 ohms as if it were a single piece of wire (which it is). The double green is just a break out point along that wire. don't overthink it

    I have only seen a couple of stock harnesses, and there is a good chance those were messed with at some point, but looking at the drawn diagram, I am thinking that one of the greens in the main harness is the green that goes to the headset and the kill or ignition switch... And now rethinking it, the other green is probably the other end of the green in the loom by itself. So, they are used and just need to be connected together so that the single wire functions.

    Not sure what you mean about the greens. Those 2 on the left side of the picture just common together so you can tie the kill switch from the headset to the coil on a standard/stock loom (IGNITION +). Red, common with the single green from your loom, goes to terminal 1 (IGNITION +)

    Mike, see the "Not Used" on the greens...? That needs to be connected for the kill function. I am guessing you mean just the stator wiring when you say rest looks correct...

    white/red is for the battery. Just tape it off if you're not running DC . the rest of it looks correct. Blue = ground Yellow = lights Red = Ignition +

    Here is an update: I've been busy. Here are some pics of things that I actually took pics of. New treads!! Voltage regulator and coil mounted and nearly wired up. Just waiting for reply on my request for help on my new thread. Carb is in but giving me fits with the cables I bought. My throttle cable was too short, but the outer case was the correct length. So I bought a longer inner cable and a trunnion. The choke cable it too short too. Turns out the inner cable is the correct length but the outer housing is too long?? I've got one coming, we'll see how it works. I'm only getting this much inner cable. The carb needs twice the length. I'll post a pic like this once it arrives ... if I remember. Dont worry about that old crust ground cable you see hanging there. That has been cleaned up too. More to come soon!!

    Peek thru the window in the flywheel and see which wire is connected where on the stator. I would bet that the solid red goes to the little black (typically) pick up box and the red/white will go to a large copper wound coil. Betting aside, whichever wire is connected to the little black box goes to the spark coil (terminal 1 in these images). The wire that goes to the large copper coil on the stator is the power for DC. Your kill switch/ignition switch on/off should come from the green wire in the main harness, that is the wire that wants to go to coil terminal 1 so you can turn the motor off.

    You can totally see the lectron influence on those. Would love to try one out for bonneville but not for $700. Wonder if https://technologyelevated.com/ feels like sponsoring?

    Yup I agree. I think I feel bad for the company seeing how they have been around since the beginning of American motorcycling. Plagued by executive and owners that never could see the future coming at them and being unwilling to adapt. They barely made it out of the amc disaster. I see only two ways out for them. One is to aggressively downsize making the product exclusive with a cap on how many units are made each year. The other is to make an entry level bike, gas or electric for $5000 to $7000. If you are 18 to 25 and have a job, you can probably afford that. Or if you are new to riding, its not to big a gamble to see if you will enjoy it. Yes, the era of $30,000 cruiser behemoths you cant pick up off the ground is rapidly coming to a close under the current economic forecast.

    My name is scott and I live in Clovis California. I currently own a few V3$p@s and just recently jumped to the dark side. I purchased an all original 1958 series 1 Li 150. The scooter has 10,181 miles, but it has not moved in 20 plus years. The engine was not stuck, so I thought I would try and get her to run. After a few hours, I did get her to run, but the vacuum leaks were so bad i had to throw in the towel. After a couple of months, she runs like a brand new scooter....well maybe just a bit better. I installed a Mugello 198 cylinder kit for a TV175 116mm con rod, GP 60mm stroke crankshaft. Varitronic ignition system,casa performance big box exhaust, and a Dellorto carb. The scooter runs great and a blast to ride. I left the patina as it was found...but I did add some advertising. Looking forward to reading and participating in the new group. Thanks scottScott

    Very nice collection of Tv175s with an Sx200 and a couple Li150s thrown in for good measure. If you remind everyone again closer to the date, and if there are not three other scooter rallys going on the same weekend here in California, then maybe our crew from Santa Barbara might be able to make it up there for this years ride. We are having our main ride tomorrow. Jack
