Duncan Et al. Yes I had a lambretta ! £4 non runner ! pushed it round the corner from the sellers house, quick fiddle and rode it home ! Normal journey Middlesbro Tilbury or Middlesbro Gt Yarmouth. It finally died when the crank broke at the stress raiser behind the flywheel, and it dropped off ! Side panels that fell off - The happy days. Noel

I think this relates to the thread "Centaur Ignition Coil" where Duncan mentioned he once briefly had a Lambretta.

I had a Lambretta LI150 once. Satisfactory for me, until I "lost" it going slowly, but not slowly enough, around a greasy corner right on the crown of the road, the road having bad cambers on each side. I came off, and the scooter continued it's merry way, on it's side, and slowly spinning round on the twist grip with the result that the engine ended up running flat out.

What was worst, was that this three days before my motorcycle test, thus necessitating some urgent repairs to the windscreen.
