Pimping my Lambretta TV 175

Lots of sun today, and a tad warmth...
The Lambretta TV 175 series 1 was pimped today. The spare wheel cover with it's spinner was mounted. On a Vespa bracket, somewhat altered...
The cover and the spinner was found some years ago at a veteran fair. I wonder if the spinner actually is a cap to gas tank? Although a hommage to the English mods!
I also mounted the exhaust deflector, looks nice.

Yes, I could clean the engine...

Almost 30 years apart, Lambretta from 1958, Vespa from 1987.


  1. That wheel cover is really nice. It looks quite delicate. It is a wonder it survived. Probably was not mounted on a wheel. It would not take much to damage those small spokes!


  2. Yup, Paul! It's very, very delicate. Had it rechromed before Christmas. Not perfect but OK.
