    ESPANSCOOTFANvesparado: Hi Steve.  Don't know if you have read the latest woes with my PX.  Is it possible to set up a carb, jets etc off the scooter it is going onto?  Thanks

      Johntee So do I Steve , but cynical old me expects a far East designed clone that does not do the original scooter justice. Don't forget that Lambretta is now a clothing brand now, so do they really have their finger on the pulse of traditional scooter design ? I...  more

    HUGOJohntee: My friend Alan is looking into buying and re-building the trike. He is a Harley fan, so it's likely to be a bit of a beast when finished.

      Johntee Nice one Steve, the engine looks as though it fits like a glove in the frame. Is that the case or not ?

      vesparado Yes mate,The scomadi was made for the 300 gts ,but at 8k a pop, they where very rare, this build uses the gts cradle and silent block. all finished bar the shouting.

      Johntee That is really tragic Hugo, especially when you consider that nearly all trikes are one - off designs, so you can't just go and buy another one with the insurance money off the shelf. I hate to make light of someone's bad fortune, but the front mudguard l...  more

    ESPANSCOOTFAN Had a look at my scoot yesterday after it's latest failure.  A hole right in the middle of the top of the piston.  From what I have read it's caused by too lean fuel air mixture or top end gasket failure.  Either way I think it's my fault as the plug did ...  more

      Johntee Hi Dave, the best advice I can give you is to buy the same thing that I bought when I got a PX as a box of bits some years ago; get the Haynes manual for the PX, I found it invaluable and you should be able to find it on ebay, Amazon etc. It covers all mo...  more

      ESPANSCOOTFAN Hi John, Thanks I've got the Haynes manual and have used it to good effect in the past. I've had a look at it since my first post and got the piston size from it. I haven't had good look yet but some pistons advertised are 58mm but the Haynes manual s...  more

    • ESPANSCOOTFAN
      Johntee Dave, I think it may mean that is the piston diameter to suit a 58mm cylinder bore. Obviously the piston has to be a little smaller than the bore to stop it seizing because the aluminium of the piston will expand more than the cast iron of the cylinder as...  more
