My project

Post  coaster on Thu Aug 31, 2017 2:55 pm

As I mentioned last year in my introduction, this is going to be a slow build as  don't really have anywhere to work on it. My wife is very tolerant as I keep all 3 Lambrettas inside the house Smile  To be fair though, the house has been a bit of a restoration project itself for the 12 years that we've owned it so I have been able to work on my other 2 without doing to much harm to the fabric of the building. The Vega is currently partly stripped and buried behind building materials awaiting the construction of a garage hopefully ready next year. In the meantime, here are some photos. I should mention, this came without paperwork so if anyone recognises it I'd be interested in contacting previous owners to see what they might have. It was originally registered near Dudley.

Hi. Looks an interesting project & pretty complete. You've at least got the hard to get / expensive bits e.g. Exhaust and seat base. Also being a very slow rebuilder (like myself) has the advantage that lots of parts are being remade that previously were also mega money.

Is it too early to ask of your plans for it? Also I do like that mustard yellow.

Hi, yes, slow build and lucky to have some of the rare parts with it. Intention is to re-spray in original ochre colour.

You just know that if that was mine, mate, it'd just be scrubbed up with t cut Wink

Not sure if I could live with the cutdown mudguard though.

T Cut? Are you insane? That's original dirt, only original once lol

I did actually think about keeping it unmolested but the tank and Lettie centre cover are orange.
