Avoid­ing night­mares

Scootering - - Mailbox -

I’ve seen a num­ber of Lam­bret­tas of­fered for sale on eBay from In­dia in orig­i­nal con­di­tion at very good prices. Do you have any ex­pe­ri­ence of such scoot­ers? They seem to me to be a good ba­sis for a restora­tion be­ing much cheaper than an un­re­stored scooter here in Eng­land. Ron, Es­sex

(It’s some­thing that we of­ten re­peat but if in doubt, our ad­vice is al­ways buy lo­cal. It may cost more but you get to see the scooter first be­forepart­ing with any cash, and if there are any prob­lems it’s a lot eas­ier to re­mon­strate with a seller in the same county rather than one onad­if­fer­ent con­ti­nent half­way around the world. Find an es­tab­lished lo­cal scooter dealer – no­tabou­tique or bandwagon jumper with a shop full of over­priced Viet­namese restos. Ad­verts in­S­cooter­ing are a good place to begin, along with ask­ing lo­cal scooter clubs for rec­om­men­da­tions. If the scooter you’re look­ing at is an im­port, make sure it comes with all the rel­e­vant pa­per­work re­quired to reg­is­ter it via the DVLA NOVAsys­tem– Andy)
