  1. Not sure what is happening. I just left Joe Barthlow a voicemail about this. I cannot view the classified section. It says that I do not have permission to view the content of something to that regard. My dues are fully paid and current so not sure what the deal is. Can this be rectified right away? Thank you, Jack
  2. Where can we watch it. I think t is worth a gander, just for the shots of the scooters.
  3. 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
  4. Someone I know has a Lambretta motor for sale and I am trying to determine what type of motor it might be. Because of the number sequence I believe that it is an Indian motor but not sure. Can anyone help? Starts with some unrecognizable shape at the extreme left then the numbers 401 followed by a star shape followed by 181383 then another star at the extreme right. If I can figure out how to add a picture I will. Jack
  5. It is very easy at the AAA office. What would be easier though is for you to just sell them all to me and let me deal with the registrations. You can then borrow them whenever you show up. Jack
  6. Here are some pictures of my Red Special when I got it. Mine still has some of the original blue seat cover and the CEAT tires. I bought it from the original owner and this is how it looks after many years of sitting. The patina is so heavy on one side that the paint is almost like suede. Just enjoy your new Red Special.
  7. Great looking scooter. Take care of it and it will last you a long time and give plenty of enjoyment I am sure.
  8. Both bands were supposed to play in Ventura on November 11th but the Beat had to cancel due to Rankin Roger being ill. The Majestic Ventura Theater says that the Selecter will still play with some other band. We plan on riding down from Santa Barbara for the show. Join us. Jack
  9. Hi Nick, You have a great Lambretta Series 1 Li150. I am not a cheap skate and I am not trying to insult you or your scooter. However, knowing how much I would have to pay for shipping to Santa Barbara, CA and that I would have to spend quite a bit of time and money going over a lot of the body work and paint to restore the scooter to proper condition, I am willing to give you $2,000.00 for the series 1 Li150 without seeing it in person. You can call or text me on my cellular phone at (805) 896-4489 to discuss further or email me at lambretta@cox.net Thank you, Jack
  10. I wish I could have attended the rally and I hope that everyone had a great time and was safe. I had a rally of one when I had to go pick up my pickup truck from the mechanic and rode one of my Li150s all the way across town to the mechanics shop. Jack
  11. Hello everyone, I have been asking around to see if anyone has seen an old scooter of mine that for some reason I sold many years ago. It started life as a stock light blue Serveta Jet 200. It had some quality issues with the original spanish engine cases so I changed the entire drive train and motor with Innocenti parts. I had the main case powder coated in blue paint and had the case cover polished to a chrome like finish. The fuel tank, gloves box and head cover were all chrome plated. I installed a Wiseco 228 piston and a 44 mm flat slide Makuni carb, and a WestCo expansion chamber exhaust with polished aluminum end. I also mounted front and rear crash bars, front and rear racks with a nice back rest for the rear passenger on the rear rack, custom metallic blue spare wheel cover, blue wind screen, lots of various mod lights, and a complete array of many Stadium mirrors. It was a full dress mod scooter that hauled ass. I was a partner at the time in the Isla Vista scooter shop called Santa Barbara V3$p@ and Lambretta Works. Even with my whole sale purchasing power I spent several thousand dollars on that scooter. I sold it to a guy named Brando, who was the manager of a bar in Isla Vista called The Anaconda Night Club, for $1,000.00 cash so that he could give it to his girlfriend Claudine. I tracked him down a few years ago and called him to inquire about the location of the scooter. He thinks he remembered it last being at his parents house in Bakersfield, CA. but was not entirely sure. Has anyone seen or come across this scooter in their journeys? Not too many scooters out there with powder coated italian engine cases in a spanish scooter I am guessing. If so, and you know where it might be, I am willing to offer a finders fee, more like a reward, to help me secure it's safe return regardless of it's current condition. I never should have sold that scooter and definitely not for the price I sold it for. Just seemed like the thing to do at the time. Any help would be appreciated. Jack (805) 896-4489
  12. Sounds good, thanks. how much from somewhere in the mid west to Santa Barbara, CA? Jack
  13. Hello, Not sure of your name. The Spanish made Lambrettas do not have as high a value as the Italian made ones. I got mine (pictured on LCUSA web site right before yours) with zero miles brand new for $1,600.00 including delivery. I got it from the storage facility of an out of business motorcycle shop. You can try asking whatever you feel like. Even though it has very few miles on it, it will need to be gone through to make it road worthy I will give you $2,500.00 cash for the scooter right now. I will also make arrangements to have it picked up and shipped to me from your location. What State and City are you in? I have family in Iowa. Jack (805) 896-4489 cellular
  14. I just saw this on EBAY and thought I would share it with everyone. 162259679710.htm
