  1. Conrod centre to centre - first photo looked like a 107mm, this now looks like it could be 110mm, but accurate measuring will confirm. 190 conversions have also use the longer TV conrods @ 116mm, although the base of the cylinder looks to have been machined, so unlikely to be one of those. Its tough to tell if the top of the cylinder has been machined from the photos posted.

    Crank looks to be standard 58mm, if you post a photo of the other side of the rod, showing any manufacturers marks it may help, and also the flywheel taper on the other side of the crank, that may also help identifying it. The balance holes are generally in LI/SX/TV cranks, although italian GP150 also had them.

    The Spanners Manual (#3 just published) would be a great reference guide for you.

  2. Discount - I'm sure this is a tough one for the dealers (Jet200, Scooter Speed, Sole Power, Lambretta Concessionaires, ScootersO Pacific, etc) as I would guess 40-50% of their (Lambretta parts) orders probably come from LCUSA members, which would eat into their bottom line, and they still have overheads and want to make a wage, so that they're still in business when we need parts !!

    Tony's suggestion above about Pay It Forward is a great one as we all have stuff laid around which may be useful to other members who are in need.

    The Specialist has always been a struggle for the admin to get content and contributions, and as mentioned at the recent Members Meeting, this is likely to change, becoming an annual production.

    At least the tracking of membership renewals has improved with the new club store. And the Club Store has some great product (well done Matt).

    To me, its this Forum, the Jamboree and the lifelong friendships as Peter mentions above.
