i use willenhall as he wears a turban n smells of curry , but is in this country ,a cheap lammy means budget indian parts ,at least willenhalls subject to trading standards .he gets from rellys/contacts he knows over there so dont get ripped an dont in turn rip you . go for sil genuine parts were available from a good dealer ,theres fakes around so a trusted dealers a must ,an if buying indian pull up a few listings an avoid the very cheapest with low feedback,there often 2nds or rejects from decent dealers . an facebooger lammy pages , bunch of snobs some of em who sell indian/remade stuff cheap so they can buy "genuine italian" 60 year old stuff thats knackerd,but genuine . got a decent seat last week for £40 , with catch ,coz the latch chrome surround had a tickle of rust ,5 mins with humbrol model enamel paint an it looks like a £150 seat again . for decent rubber kits i use allstyles , an ve-uk has some good stuff too . H
I will use them H, Willenhall is not far from me, so will pay them a visit .Great stuff. That's good with the seat you got last week, brill. Thanks for help H
Despite what people say about Indian Parts its not all bad. I got smallframe CDI & regulator from Willenhal for £19 incl P&P , Henri done the conversion and so far no electrical problems ( ive probably jinxed myself now )
Your right it isn't but there is so much shite out there it really is hit or miss -- Has anyone noticed the sudden depletion of Thai - Veit imports now - if people stop buying the shite they won't make them....

[qu te] yes i've noticed a decline in Thai- Viet imports lately, good job really as i would have prob bought the shite !
Hi it has been some time since i took the cover off this scoot. Had a look to see and make a list to what parts i need to get. The engine looks to be the original Indian 150. the wiring isn't good bad repairs and loose wires. As people have mentioned and when i looked the frame is in very good condition. I need to replace the front and rear mudguards and the exhaust. I'm looking at salvaging the legshields and repairing, hoping to do same with floor panels but there's a lot of dents and dings to the edges. I need to start stripping this soon and start rebuilding.
I might have a new loom I could donate for postage , you will have fun when you take it apart they have a knack of shiming things with coke cans and all sorts of things like flip flops. Good luck , Willenhall scooters are cheap for Indian bits if it was mine I’d just do the engine and brakes and ride it. Keep your spend down to a minimum. If your a vespa man you’ll get rid of it when you try and use the money on a vespa lol.
I bought an indian GP in similar condition (a long time ago) and found that most of the engine internals were actually reuseable - I even reused the crank and that had some weird non std bearing bodged on to - which it ran fine with for many thousands of miles. I think all I replaced was a few of the other bearing, gaskets, clutch plates and oil seals. What I used to do though is take all the bits in to a local scooter shop where they were friendly and ask their advice on whether the parts were good or not and went off that. Stickys manual is also a great guide for stripping, assessing and rebuilding a series 3 lambretta.
If only such a thing existed for my Vega or Vespa smallframes
Thanks Snails, good advice there. I've already mentioned in a earlier post that i wanted to see if the scoot would fire up. H said i could remove kill switch put fresh fuel and kick it and to be fair this was before i put up any images of the engine. I would still like to try this and i would replace spark plug and make a proper connection to the plug as well, as at moment wire is just wrapped around top of plug as seen in photo. Judging by the photos of engine do you think this might work and worth trying ? Any advice on this please .
Is it me (not Me) but am I the only one who cant see the photos in the post? Are they links from Facebook as that's blocked at work. As George says, give it a try. You might want some oil in as well as I doubt it has any
Yes it will kick over and there's compression and I can't hear any grinding etc. Sorry for the confusion snails, I'm using imgur at moment to link photos to posts. Can't believe I forgot about oil, basics
I've been thinking about your post Leon all afternoon while plastering a room out at work and I think your right. It will help keep the costs down and I Don't mind that look . Just checking out the page on Facebook. Cheers bud.
think some of the indonesian places use that type of writing ,thats a well travelled scoot the list of were it might of been is long. could even off been a despatch/attack scoot for the taliban ,be wary of attaching any stray wires from frame to a battery , could be a "self-propelled pipe-bomb" .
That's not Indonesian tribe font for sure, more likely Indian or somewhere that has a lot of hindi people. I'm Indonesian btw and still your jokes make me laugh H

hi adi, all the indian/pakistan scoots ive seen have same numbers as us in uk ,i thought they might be arabic type or indonesian .an i'm glad no offence was taken as none was meant ,wasnt a dig at foreigners more about the "pipe" bit .as a lammie frames mostly 3 1/4" gas pipe with a bit of scaffold pipe welded to it,what innocetti made before scooters .dont try to offend other countrys ,but no probs taking a poke at lame-bed-wetter owners ,like myself ,series 2 API an a li series3 .
