groveling on my knees

Post  daz.h on Mon Jul 12, 2010 2:40 pm

lunatics.
i'm after some help from you all here, all you have to do is nothing, thats right, nothing !!!

as i'm sure most of you will have probably recived a email from me in the past asking if you had a vega indicator light switch, no one has unfortunately, and so for the last almost 4 years i have been trawling the internet, making phone calls (includeing overseas) and looking at other possabilities that they were fitted to other machines, but alas to no avail.
all i could find was a guy in australia who was willing to swap one but it was for a rare lambretta seat thats almost impossible to get (pegasus) and had to be original not remade Sad otherwise i would have bought it, or found a remade seat to swap.

so finally several months later one has turned up on evil bay, yes i have already bid on it, and all i'm asking you all is PLEASE dont go bidding against me.

this is probably my only chance to get this project all together and is the final piece of the jigsaw.

thank you,
kind regards,
daz.h

Had a good look at the Cometa with indicators in the Lambretta museum when i was at the Weston Super Mare rally over the weekend, do you know how many were done with indicators and was it done at the factory or a deler extra as wondered if the headset was and rear end was manufactured for the indicaators or not.

Had a look at the indicator switch Daz and you will be very happy to know that yours is in better condition than the one in the museum Cool

Here are a couple of pictures; (i took a load of most of the stuff in there so anything you want to see then let me know and i will post the pictures for you)

Hey what do you know?I was at Simon's (littlemoon) and he left his wallet in side it was 10 Vega indicator switches,I said hey Simon ,why didn't you say you had them?he replied I forgot I haven't been in it for years !Lol!
Actually I've found some in Colombia but they are wired for the left-hand drive market!

Yes,as expected a watcher seeing if they bring a good price then they come out of the woodwork.
Incidently if you are not that worried (about it being original)it is easy to wire a normal one like an Li switch to work indicators.
I have done a few in Colombia as you get hassled by Transit Police for indicators (as I found out,but I beat the rap!Ha-ha!)
Obviuosly you would lose the side light function and the ability to switch the lights on and off,this could be rectified by fitting a seperate switch on/off or an Li/GP/TV/SX Iignition light switch to control this part.
This was used on the Indian Gp in the 80's. [b]
