Default Most Recent Updates

Dear Team Bhpians.

Well the most recent update is attached here in the pics below.

We have refitted all body panels on the de-rusted frame and checked for fit and finish.

The holes have been drilled afresh on the leghshield floor boards with new aluminium channels checked out in place.

And finally after all required frame strengthening welding as and where required we have managed to get the polyurethane primer on the bare and fresh metal of the frame. The machine frame is now looking better than what it must have come out of the factory. The weaker areas of the legshield have been re-inforced and so are the weaker crack prone areas of the mudguard in the front.

All nuts and bolts have been sent away for chrome or passivation or zinc or cadmium plating.

The Steering Cone races have also been sourced and will now be replaced into the frame.

Enjoy the pics.

Cheers!

Default Hello

Hi All,

Well the pace of work has been slowed down as we near the final painting so that we dont do anything incorrectly while we get into painting.

Am attaching some more pics for all of you of the latest status on painting.

Most of the parts have been sprayed with the surfacer now. Minor defects are being taken care of now with polyester putty filling. The surfacer is being sanded with 2500 grit sandpaper to make it ready forpainting now.

The booth where the parts will be painted is being cleaned up and the filters are being thoroughly cleaned so that we have a dust free environment for painting.

All parts that had to be sent for chrome plating have been sent and are being received in batches to all assembly of parts opened up.

Here you go.

Cheers!

Saurabh

Default Painting Update

OK TEAM!

MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY FIRST OF ALL ON THE 5TH B'DAY!

FINALLY MY SCOOTS GONE INTO PAINTING - ONLY WHITE COLOR AT THIS TIME.

THE FRAME AND ALL ASSOCIATED PARTS THAT ARE BEING PAINTED IN WHITE GOT THEIR COLOR OVER THIS WEEKEND - A VALENTINES GIFT FOR MY MACHINE I GUESS.

AM ATTACHING SOME PICS FOR YOUR REFERENCE AND VIEIWING PLEASURE.

MOST PICS ARE ONLY THE BASE COAT WITHOUT THE CLEAR COAT ON TOP THEREFORE THE PAINT MAY LOOK VERY DULL AND FLAT. I COULD NOT TAKE THE PICS WITH THE CLEAR COAT ON SATURDAY NIGHT AS MY CAMERA RAN OUT OF MEMORY FOR MORE PICS.

ALL I CAN TELL YOU IS THAT WITH THE HIGH BUILD CLEAR COAT THE FRAME AND PARTS ARE LOOKING SIMPLY MIND BLOWING!

CHALLENGE TO ANYONE TO COME UP WITH A BETTER FINISH ON THEIR SCOOT THAN MINE!

CHEERS!

Here you go! Article published today in Deccan Chronicle, Bangalore Edition. Grrrrrr...they didn't use the lovely pics I sent of my beautiful MEB 1222 . Apparently they wanted pics with owner on the scooter only....mine were only scooter, no owner (c'mon, my Lambretta looks better than me!). But the fact that these guys mentioned the unjust export laws where our old warhorses are being plundered, made me happy. STOP the export! Save Our Scoots!

Default Assembly Started



Dear Team,

After a fantastic painting job on my machine now the painfully slow assembly process has started.

I am attaching some pics for the viewing pleasure of all.

Let me tell you that I have decided to keep it slow and easy to avoid any dents and scratches during the assembly process as well as ensure that EVERY part goes in its right place at the right time.

Started with the frame. The petrol tank rubbers were installed. The toolbox rubber was installed and the toolbox installed with the imported trunion set.

The highly polished Stainless Steel Choke Assembly and Petrol Tap were installed next. Dont forget to see the Polished Stainless Steel Petrol Tap rod surround.

Next will go in the Petrol Tank straps but am doing that slowly to avoid scratching the tank or the body colored imported straps. Have imported chrome trunions to assemble the straps.

And after that the Air Filter Box, the genuine Italian Air Scoop and the petrol tank lockable cap and the toolbox door.

Stay tuned now as the excitement builds up.

Cheers!

Saurabh

Lovelyyyyyy Saurabh!!
I love the way you're putting your scoot together so carefully and meticulously man! 'can actually drive a guy crazy!!

I now feel the care I thought I've been taking for putting my machnie together is not adequate!

BTW, good that you finally got the toolbox rubber! Now I'd like one too!

Also the surround for the petrol tap.
