Very few people would consider restoring a Lammie as badly corroded as this… After getting this cheap (it would have to be!!) off of eBay, Jon thought he’d have a go.
Luckily he had access to a good welder – strike that – a miracle worker, (Paul at Atoms in Maidstone, and his dad) who not only made good, but fabricated whole new elements – of the sidepanels for example.
After priming, and sorting out a seized engine, Jon put it all back together… and while he’s not going to have a show winner – he’s got a great looking, road going Lammie. One that many Lambretta experts would have consigned to the skip. I love it, and can’t wait to see what the next chapter in this scooters history holds. Big respect, Jon!
