Lambretta 150 cc. Series II

This beautiful Lambretta 1961 Series II was purchased and used in Florence by his current owner who, when he migrated to Australia, decided to take the scooter with him.

After over 30 years of good service the engine became a bit tired and I was asked to check it out so that it could be again used reliably around Melbourne.  I ended up replacing, amongst other minor items, the cruciform, chain, clutch, piston, barrel, bearing and oil seals.

The rebuilt engine brought the scooter back to life and, having rediscovered the joy of riding his Lambretta again, the owner decided to go ahead with a full restoration.

Here are the pictures of the scooter being disassembled and after sandblasting
