    Introduce myself.

    Post by Sham on Thu Jun 14, 2012 6:57 am

    Harry from Margate.
    Have been into scoots, since i was tiny, have a picture of me on a little plastic vespa when i was aged 1, anybody else have one of those?!

    Parents have been into scootering for over 26 years now,
    I saw this and thought hey ho!
    Own a British racing green and white 1978 p150x
    malossi 166
    engine casings ported and polished to suit.
    28ml dellorto
    lightened flywheel
    early type primary drive (3.04:1 ratio)
    p200 sterling expansion race pipe with bodge-job lambretta end can.
    electronic ignition conversion.

    Considering fashioning my own boost bottle for fun, any suggestions? Smile

    Gotta love a good keytop!
    Due to their gearing they are also faster (standard) than the later EFL's

    Weird finding people that like to be bored to death about useless scoot knowledge...
