I'm aware of those 'export quality parts' sold by silent exporters in places like Delhi and I'm not referring to those! I would never buy any of those, only genuine imported spares available abroad like those made by Casa Lambretta etc.
'appreciate your gesture of sharing the NOS parts with me but if they're Vijai ones, I wouldnt really have any use for them I'm afraid. Certainly would've been 6-7 years ago!

I would reckon twas from 1958-59 (Li series 1), which had only "Li150" stamped on it?

Which reminds me- how is your series 1 doing?? Have you done her up?

Shyam: I have a 62 lammy and it has the Innocenti logo before the number. Same goes with the jawas, my 62 jawa has the jawa logo after the number.

Sir,

Here I am posting photo of my Lambretta 1967 model bought by my Grandndfather for Rs.3,250/-. I have painted it 2 years back in the
same Original Green colour. It is still running very well and I drive it
on Weekends. I have also taken part in Vintage car rally.

That scoot is owned by a very enthusiastic gent, and his nephew takes equal interest. They have a Vespa, Jawa and Bobby as well, doubt they would sell it. Very helpful duo, have helped me graciously with my scooter. As have you!

........ doubt they would sell it.

Let that enthusiastic s...have it , maintain it & also let them help guys from our fraternity ..as you said ..
Honestly speaking, unless & until I get a confirmed news some one is going to sell any Automobiles of my interest.... I never go pester them!!

But all I expect just a " Hi" from LIKE MINNDED GUYS, when some thoughts or materials exchanged between two sides!!
Cheers!!

Guys,
Came across this one on the web.
http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...33384040_n.jpg
I didnt have a clue where it should be posted here or in the Wierd & Wacky mods thread.
Still, I was really freaked out to see this 3 cylinder engine neatly packaged & adapted on the Lambretta crankcase. Had someone among us done such a mod, whether we had appreciated his efforts or not we would have come up with this question "How much is the average?"
