Hello fellow club members. My name is Roger. I dont think that I've officially introduced myself yet. I know I have not posted anything about my LI125. In September of 2016 I picked up my LI125. Almost 2 years to the day and I'm finally at a point where I can begin to work on it. In that two years I converted a carport into functioning shop, got my Lambretta licensed and also completed a heap of work on my 1964 Chevy C10 pickup project which filled just about every square inch of space in that carport. Not to mention the truck took most of my spare money too. But the 64 project is complete. Its been kicked outdoors and the scooter now has plenty of elbow room.

Some of the obvious things are, broken fins on the fly wheel, scored cylinder walls and badly scratched piston. The clutch body was grinding away on the kick start arm too. All the cables are toast and some of the electrical needs to be reworked. The tins are in good shape. There are some lumps here and there, but they are not rusted or missing.

I'm also very interested in visiting the Isle of Man any time of the year, but specifically during a motorcycle / scootering event. And the Isle of Wight, Brighton and the Goodwood Revival would be top of my list too. I'm into Ska and Northern Soul for those of you who dig the vintage scene. My goal is to make a British styled scooter that looks like it was built in the early 80's. I have much to learn and will probably change my mind as things proceed. But that's the general goal. As for the motor. I'm open to bumping up the power, but would like to keep things simple and reliable first and foremost. I'll post updates when they happen. Thanks for looking. Rog.
