Default Restoration complete

Finally , The restoration of the Laam has been completed . Some small details still remain to be fixed but that would be done over a period of time . All the major tin work / mechanical s are 100% complete . The scoot will go for a rubbing / polishing job day after.

Enjoy the pics.

First Pic is of the restoration team - Workshop owner + Mechanics all the work was done at Mores Power Lucknow .

CONGRATS BHAI The vehicle is gleaming and thanking you profusely for restoring her back. It's so nostalgic since it reminded me of my childhood when Dad use to take us all around during Sunday evenings. We had a lambertta and Vijay Super. I kick action and sound from 'silencer' is something i can never forget with these scootees... Golden Days !!!!

Your efforts to restore these evergreen beauties speaks volume of your passion.

Great job indeed and i am sure it would gleam after the rubbing polishing job. Kudos to the team who restored this Italiano.

Nice outcome, I like the colour and am sure once the rubbing, polishing is done she will be princess of the road. I am left with doubt, what is that bracket (I have circled in red) please clarify.

Bala bhai it looks some sort of lever to keep the clutch handle pressed with out troubling ones hand. I may be wrong though but this is what i understand after viewing the pics. Salman bhai please clear this thing.

The original gear selector bracket is broken at the point where the clutch lever is attached . This i think was a common complaint in the Lambretta"s .. the cover that u see is a period accessory by which you can fix the clutch lever without changing the entire bracket. This is some sort of "OE Jugaad "

And thank you all for the kind words .

Priyadarshan B - Yes i have all the fittings with me . But since the vehicle will now be stored since i will be out of the country dint want to put the cosmetic bits on .

I liked the earlier shade better. It looked more classy than this red one. I am going to consider that shade when i start restoration of my lambretta next month.

The new colour looks quite close to the original shade coral red offered by lambretta. What code was it? Here is a period image for your reference.

Can"t say which colour code off hand , but i was looking for a "post office Red " shade and this kind of matched the best . In fact the scooter was sold since i moved abroad and dint wish to see it deteriorating with lack of care/space , but i am happy that it has found a good home with a well known collector of Lucknow and a forum member
