Hi I have a 1962 series three that I found in the Bronx years ago. I am doing a full restoration on it now and found the original paint was a white and blue which made me think maybe it has some NYPD history or NJ police. What is easiest way to figure that out? Thanks.
The 2018 Lambretta Jamboree raffle bike build is currently underway. It started with a pre-mod Series 3 LI125 that had been sitting for quite a while. Build ideas were debated before deciding that a "Cascadia" themed scooter would be perfect for this Jamboree. Here is the scooter as the Seattle Crew picked her up. We'll add additional posts to update the progress. It's really an incredible process, and it couldn't be done without the support of (in no particular order) ScootersO Pacific Scooter Speed Jet 200 Performance Lambretta Concessionaires Piston Ported Andiamo Let's Go! Saints Cycle Works And all of the people who have volunteered their time wrenching the last few Sundays.
I swear I saw a post on here not too long ago about a brake switch not lining up with the brake pedal. I've searched the forum up and down for that post, but for the life of me I can't find it. Can anyone send me the link or refresh my memory and tell me what the solution was? The button on the brake switch sits too far back (towards the rear of the bike), so the stud on the brake pedal doesn't hit it. Thanks.
So, I am hoping someone has some ideas on this as I am stumped. Right before Lammy Jammy I was experiencing bad engine vibration. Upon further inspection I found my bearings were bad and there were wear marks on my crank. I assumed the crank had gotten out of true, so I replaced the bearings, seals and crank. Things improved, but there was still a bit of a funky vibration. This lead me to replace my rear hub bearing and re-shim my gearbox. Again better, but still a little rattly...still, I thought I had done all the right things and probably need to live with a little rattle. Fast forward a few months, I was fixing to install a Kytronik smart booster when I noticed my flywheel seal was leaking. Again, upon further inspection, hashed bearings and crank. The new crank had a rough ride and arrived in a pretty beat up box when I ordered it. I knew I should have had it checked for true, but was in a rush...yada, yada, yada...I figured I got what I deserved. I ordered another new crank, bearings, seals, etc. This time, I also ordered a set of v blocks as well so that I could check for true. Mark from Scooter Speed checked it prior to shipping and it was carefully packed and seemed to arrive safe and sound. I double checked and it measured true almost no runout and webs were equal distance apart. Here is where it gets a little weird. I checked the two old cranks and they measured true as well...then I noticed that both cranks had very similar wear marks (see 1st and 2nd pics below). I am not sure if this is related, but I also found some rub marks on my stator pickup and one of the lighting coils (not sure which incident they are from or if they are relevant–3rd pic below). It is a BGM flywheel and stator, so I know it is a longshot, but could that be off in some way? Anyone ever see this before or have any ideas on where I might have gone wrong or where I should go from here? I can't afford to do this a third time, so any advice would be much appreciated... Thanks in advance! Dean
