    HUGOrebelpeter: Just got back from viewing the 49cc Honda. Rusty pile of crap that turned out to be. Nothing like the photo. They guy didn't even have any fuel in it to let me test it.  A VERY BIG NO

    HUGOrebelpeter: They have had a hard life and I could feel a difference when applying the brakes as they didn't feel right.
    I tried to adjust them, but even that wasn't enough, so I replaced the pair of cables and all is good now.
    Hoping to buy a very tidy red Honda mop...  more

    ESPANSCOOTFAN My new ride complete with Chrome wheels I bought for my PX and whitewall continentals I asked to be fitted for when I collected it.  Nice ride home, about 30 miles in the sun.  Bit warm as I forgot to take the liner out of my jacket!

    gerrythemerc I think it was 'Styling dept' cheepy where they tried to get away without providing a recess in the body metal deep enough to lose the plastic thickness which would cost a fortune. There should be nothing between the bubble and the body apart from the bub...  more

    gerrythemerc Espanscootfan, Until I crack the photo thing what I can say is if you view the bumper from the rear of the scoot then picture a horizontal line just above the mudflap fixing surface and cut off everything below that line. Gerry

    • gerrythemerc
      ESPANSCOOTFAN Thanks Gerry. I'm not good with this photo thing either. I can wait for your daughters help. I'm in no rush as it's my PX I'm having problems with and I'm picking up my new LML next week. Not to say though that I won't have the same problem with that. ...  more

    gerrythemerc Hi Espanscootfan, I hope you get this pboto of the rear bumper modified to improve bubble to body assembly and fit. You will note I have also removed that part of the bumper that takes the mudflap as I dont like mudflaps. If I ck k this up which is likely...  more

    ESPANSCOOTFAN Come to a decision over the last couple of days.  My plan with my PX has been to re spray it red, white and blue then fit all the chrome accessories and UJ seat cover wheel cover and seat pad then enjoy it in the sun.  The paint on it at the moment is red...  more

      Johntee Is the Star 200 auto available in Spain Dave? I tried to get one here but to no avail, only the 125 is available. Not that I am complaining, it is absolutely fine for my needs.

    • ESPANSCOOTFAN
      ESPANSCOOTFAN Just had a look John. It's the same here no auto on the 200. It doesn't matter that's made my mind up for me.

    • ESPANSCOOTFAN
      vesparado no mate not really, you can set the basics up,on the bench, But all are different,and need to be set up on the engine they are feeding, and even after you have fitted it and got it running how you want,You still need to plug chop,to make sure its not runn...  more

    • ESPANSCOOTFAN
      ESPANSCOOTFAN Thanks Steve. Don't know if I'm making this more of a problem than it is. I took the jets out to clean them and don't know if they are in correctly. I've been reading up on line and people seem to just screw them in fully. Is that correct or do they nee...  more

    • ESPANSCOOTFAN
      vesparado all the jets inside the float bowl need to be screwed in fully, your air screw on the out side ,Needs to be screwed all the way in,And then one and a half turns out,as a base to work from, only turn it a quarter turn at a time and then test ride it,and ch...  more

      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

      vesparado The LN was a disaster, and should never have had the name applied to it,with a bit of luck they will use a European engine,As the group involved re branded the huskavana. Chinese crap is outdated copies and under powered.

      Johntee It was also hugely overpriced at around £3250 and struggled to make 50 m.p.h. Not a wise buy.

      Johntee Nice one Steve, the engine looks as though it fits like a glove in the frame. Is that the case or not ?
      • May 5
    • vesparado
      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.
      • May 5
    • vesparado
      Johntee That's why they went for Chinese engines isn't it , to keep the costs down ? I must admit to being a big fan of the Scomadi's smooth lines.
