Clutch Lever Repair - Series 1& 2 After the Frozen Finger rally, I could feel my clutch lever pivot sink into the handlebars housing. The clutch lever had been sinking for some time, but not as deep. After the 160 mile scooter ride, it felt like the lever had broken inside the handlebars housing. Not good! Long story short. I inspected other old clutch levers. Then got an original Series 1 lever from club member Wrekkah. It had the same damaged hole. The presser between the steel bolt and the aluminum lever, was causing the aluminum to melt/mush over time. You can see the problem by this worn edge. The top lever has no damage and the hole is circular. I wanted to use my original lever. Original parts always fit and look better! I have built a lot of motors over the years. Race motors to scooter motors. A common thing you see in every type of motor, and frame is a brass bushing, when steel comes in contact with aluminum. The easy thing to do, is just buy a new lever from a scooter shop. But that original part thing comes into play, I talked about. The parts to repair the lever, can be found at the local hardware store. Brass tubing: 5/16 x .014 (7.94mm) Drill bit: 5/16 The best way to drill out the larger hole, is with a drill press and secure the lever with a clamp. The damage space left, needs to be filled in. I used pieces of metal and epoxy. Cut off the extra material. Cleanup, and install. Anthony Armstrong 2015 Series 1and 2 Clutch Lever Fix. AnthonyScooterWork.com GetBent-sc.com
as a new day begins, like many of my fellow enthusiasts, the computer is usually a part of the morning routine, including coffee and showering(i hope) etc. scoot.net, searchtempest, local craigslist, scooterfinds.com, ebay, and facebook are usually on my go thru just in case someone posts a gem. truly a sickness and compulsive behavior, nonetheless, i saw an ad this morning, offered the guy what i thought was solid (500-1000) sight unseen, for a pretty gnarly bike from what i could see. he claimed to be a restorer of vintage automobiles and has a price in his head that is higher than any sort of market inflation could account for. anywho, figured i'd link the ad here so some of you with deeper pockets wanna take a stab at it. happy hunting lambrotha's http://ventura.craigslist.org/mcy/4841640239.html
Hi everyone, I became a full member recently, I am British and have been living in the US for 20 years. I rode Lambrettas and V3$p@s back in the UK the 80s and early 90s. I recently bought a series 1 1958/9 Lambretta Li 150 and am doing a semi restore on it (i.e.: not completely original). Interestingly, according to the previous owner (Randy at V3$p@ Dallas) this machine came here via New Zealand. Here are some early break down photos http://www.flickr.com/photos/nickyoungphoto/sets/72157635403220808/ I am rebuilding with a Ivory paint finish and adding a 175cc barrel & piston kit. Any advice would be appreciated! Nick
