    So, what is wrong with your scoot at the moment?

    my bike is off the road cos the front caliper has locked on. and my headset cover thing is only held on by one mirror bracket.

    It's not fast enough so it's jacked up on a paint tin in my cellar waiting to be loved and touched.

    P200E - Currently out of commission. Circlip took out top end and crankshaft. Converting to a MB Developments 30mm reed manifold w/ RD350 reed cage, BGM 30MM PWK, Massively Ported Malossi 210, Flowed Crankshaft with a Japanese Conrod, and a Nasty 226 Vintage Exhaust. T-minus 3 months.

    Primavera - Painting it currently, about to assemble the race motor.

    Being scooter-less sucks when its 80 degrees and sunny out every day.

    My rear hub backplate is bent as brighton... The rear brake cam is fooked, and there was not circlip on the spigot holding the brake shoes on.
    Apart from the fact it's not working and isn't registered, everything's going smootttttth.

    is the tank breather big enough to replace the fuel in the tank with air in the tank, because if it isnt it can cause a vaccum in the tank.

    UPDATE -

    Big gayer fag chariot nexus 500
    - now fully working, except the thermostat now needs replacing and it needs a new air filter

    Lambretta Gp150 - put it all back together and then bugger me - clutch drag, so side casing back off and found there are notches in the clutch bell, so thats going to be replaced.

    Vespa street racer project
    - sprayed up one of the runner boards black today, found out that halfords black still isn't vespa black and the bastards paint ran, so its gunna be rub down and go and get some gloss jet black basecoat from a proper paint shop. Also everything needs to be put back together on it and a tad bit of welding needs doing on the panel clip thing.

    vespa pk50 - needs new piston rings putting in, has now moved into the front room until i finish the lammy.
