Final result

Final result !
Here it is, after several month of work, the final result!
Everything's not perfect, there's still some minor stuff to fix.. Well, there always are!
But I'm pretty happy with the result!

Bye bye Lamy...


April 2006.

Finally, I've sold the Lambretta on eBay to an enthousiast in Paris : Yves G., member of the excellent club Les Tontons Scooteurs.

The "fat canari" now runs with his new owner, he has even already gone from Paris to Deauville both ways! icone smiley wink

This picture is the last I took from the beast, just before I put it in the truck (in the background), that would take it to Paris... I'll miss it, even if it tricked me more than once (fucking ignition condenser...), but after hundreds of hours spent on it... I'm kind of attached to it, obviously.

Wish you nice trip, little Lamy, all the best Yves, I'll pass often on the Tontons Scooteurs site to see how "Mimosa" is behaving!



Its a strange feeling to see my Lamy parked on the Trocadéro square in Paris...

Den of iniquity

What the f***!? I've just discovered my (ex-)Lambretta, which now has a peaceful (or supposed so) life in Paris... Hanging around in some dens of iniquity! icone smiley laughicone smiley laugh

Many thanks to Pierre (whose superb orange GTR is in the background) for letting me publish his photo here! icone smiley wink
All the pictures of this meeting of the Tontons Scooteurs can be seen by clicking on the above picture...

A though to my mate Flo, who lives just a few meters from the place where this picture was shot...
