Riding a Lambretta TV 175

Paul S noted in a comment that there has been few blog posts from me this month. Right so, focus has been on getting the Lambretta TV 175 running. Had some issues with the clutch, and after that the clutch wire but that's sorted now.
Both the front and rear brake cables has been adjusted, I think they're pretty good for drum brakes!
I also like the long wheelbase, makes the ride smooth. And it fits my 186 cm height.
The 170 cc engine producing 8,6 bhp is nice, after riding a couple of 125's.
But there should always be time for more riding!

The speedo should go to 120 kph, this is after market.

The saddle is also two-tone.

Li 150 series II with unrestored LD 150 at an exhibition.

A nice series II TV 175, the LD once again in the background.

Some sort of race-Lambretta Luna.

Found an italian friend, a 1954 Fiat 500 C, "Topolino".
