Please post some photo's of your completed Lamby.

Side monograms can be sourced from Bangalore and also you can try in Chennai too....

If it is for the lamby the ones available are the plastic ones which after a few months just loses color. If you have the design and dimensions, just get it cut in brass and chrome it, gives a better finish and look.

Thanks mate-the condition was horrible, so i was also a bit of double minded, but as i progressed it started turning well,the paint job was done by two different people, the off white was done by the conventional baking method,the was regular scooters are done, not much of pains taken and the red portion was done by a very senior and experienced painted,a british citizen living in ludhiana with a high end equipment and paint booth,its a ferrari red hence the finish.

cosmetic parts are available at karol bagh delhi-both good and average quality, no doubt the good quality ones are on a higher side of the price but they are ok, at least good enough than importing them,actually they make such parts to cater the international markets and clubs,

Anything done on the power trains front?
iam sorry didnt get you, can you please elaborate your question ?

Powertrain includes all mechanical components that make the vehicle move. Regarding engine, gearbox, carburettor and wheels, is there something you had upgraded, restored or reworked.
