    Forum Changes

    Post by Wally on Wed Jul 10, 2013 4:51 am

    Just a quick announcement. Hopefully over the next few weeks we will be trying to get back on and update the forum. We are looking at adding a few new features and having a general revamp to try and breathe a bit of life into the page. To start with we'll soon have a new rally blog courtesy of Donna (A5Butterfly); this will be a report from recent rallies, with a few older features and personal stories etc.

    I, myself am hoping to get together a whole load of new tech stickies in the scooters section covering general problem solving and a few step by step guides on things such as setting up carbs, jetting, reading spark plugs, brake bleeding etc etc. and hopefully in the not too distant future I am looking at getting together a guide on stripping and rebuliding a large frame vespa engine (it would be great if we could get a smallie guide and possibly a lammy one too)

    In the meantime if anyone has any suggestions for features please let us know.

    Wal

    Hahaha! It's the components that are messin up, not your mechanical skills! A basic guide to Lambretta maintenance would be good!

    I'm sure if you're good the scooter gremlins will come along and fuck the engine sos you have to take it to bits... can't be that long looking at the state of yours albino 

    But seriously, just whenever you're doing it next. No need to sabotage on behalf of us mert
