A Lammy wreck is useful

The Lambretta TV 175 series 1 wreck in my yard have proven itself useful again. I have just saved the bolt that thightens the headset to the steering column/fork. The bolt is special made for Lambrettas and has the Allen-system, much favoured by Innocenti. The point is that you have a fair chance to adjust the sprint in this cramped area, if necessary, without dismantling the whole headset.
Not even that helps if use a regular nut and bolt since a spanner or a socket wrench is way too big.

The bolt, nut and washer did come off, some 53 years after someone fitted them at the Innocenti factory.

Cleaned from grime and rust. I applied some spray paint as well.

  1. your way of explaining the whole thing in this piece of writing is truly nice, this is the kind of info that should be shared across the internet.
