Shiny, shiny!

10447662_702494403150143_3186968119947901914_nEstablished about two years ago, JL Polishing offer a range of finishing for Lambretta components. They specialise in mirror finishing of alloy parts, are fast establishing a reputation for great quality work, and have gained clients far and wide.10372532_702494389816811_2922462348443999354_nIn fact, you’ve probably seen their work already… read the last three issues of Scootering? they’ve had a mention in all of them. The stunning Aston Martin themed SX? They polished the chaincase. The rather nice YPVS in the latest one? That’s their work too. 10443344_684169884991212_8463655855839633562_n524632_480631118669807_1376641703_nThere’s a lot of bits you can polish on a Lammie… from chaincase sides to carbs, from brake levers to the forks, I’d be surprised if there’s a part of a Lambretta that can be polished, that they haven’t.

JL Polishing are based in Hinckley, but  if you’re not local, you can post your components and they’ll get them back to you, securely and insured. Check out more of their stunning work on their Facebook page. They have recently moved into new premises, where they also offer servicing of scooters.

Chrome Series 1

Chrome S1“Chrome won’t get you home” is the saying amongst the Lambrettisti, and I must admit, I’m not as much in love with the plating as I was back in the day. However, when it’s done right, it still looks boss. Here’s a Series 1 where it is. Done right that is.
