Thats a great project. How did you fix the two shield badges? Did you make a template and then transfered it on to the shield? Please share your method so that I can fix mine too!

Pretty, lovely, sexy, amazing, astonishing Phew!! falling short of words Stanher Ji, I am ready with my Italian baby (vespa 64) just for your green signal.

There is a guy who owns a body building/ coach building workshop for trucks who has a collection of not less than 15-20 lambrettas and he is still adding to it, in which there is on scooter he says its 200 cc however it has a shock absorber attached to the fork on which the wheel center nut sits, I had the entire collection as vedio but it was in my old mobile was there any scooter like that or is it just an mod to enhance ride comfort.

Thanks vathsa! Did you mean the legshield badges? Or the side-panel ones? If the latter, they are molded ones in cast iron, available in delhi. But I intend to replace them with original aluminium ones as and when I get a pair (I have 1 for the left side already)
I suggest you try and do too. These ones though look authentic, have a tendancy of breaking on the slightest force for one thing. Dont ask me how I know!

Interesting to know about this collection! Where in hyd. is it? You owe me a trip down there!
There were 200cc GP Lambrettas with this additional damper on the front forks, built by SIL alongisde the Vijai Supers (which were again originally GP so were identical) But only export-based. Does this scooter look like that?

Congratulations Shyam, she looks great. Do give us some pictures of the scoot with the Standard, considering their similar paint schemes it would be an interesting proposition.

Finally, congrats! Scoot is looking great! The completion of this restoration is like a prisoner of war returning to his family after being imprisoned for years in a foreign country!

Haha! Thanks sid! 'couldnt have said it better than this myself!!

OK, here is a treat to y'all for your kind words- some eye-candy!

Speaking of which- I finally braved the attempt of fixing the (replica) innocenti horncast badge the other day. The retaining clip felt surprisingly strong in its grip, I couldnt take the badge off after the photo session was over!!
So I just let it be! It'd take more effort than that to pull it off clandestinely, so my fears can rest for now!

'plan to buy a cover for her soon nevertheless- I think that of Bajaj Eliminator would fit fine?
