Changing gears on a Lambretta is pretty simple, but if your coming from a motorcycle, or an auto, this may be useful.
It may not be as newsworthy as an Electric Lambretta, or as entertaining as some of Woodsy’s videos… sometimes the boring mechanical stuff needs doing. These nicely put together videos shows you all the steps in getting your carburettor off your scoot, stripped, cleansed and reassembled. You could use Sticky’s manual, and I’d recommend having it on hand while your doing it, but if you are new to the job, watching a couple of 8 minute videos could be real lifesavers.
Although aimed at Series 3 owners, the basics are the same for all Lambretta models, (certainly from the Series 1’s onwards) so even if you have an older scoot, they are worth a watch.
The videos have been put together by Jeff Allen who mainly does “how-too’s on how to do shit” and does it very well… nicely shot and easy to follow.
