Was my thought too!!!

The jps pics are 5 years old and the cutdown is much better now. spare fuel tank, disc brake and so on.
But still JPS. See If I can take some pics on wednesday as she is now........

Has a Lammy front mudguard ever worked on a Vespa? If it has, I've never seen it.

Shame, because that JPS would look so much better with a T5 or a hugger.

The Lambretta mudguard is what turns me off from the design.
It just bothers me that it stays stationary while the wheel turns.

My friend put an LD one on his P/LML. Looks surprisingly natural.

Quite the contrary. The Vespa front mudguard has some very unsightly angles when parked with the column locked. It used to bother the shit out of me when I owned Vespas. The Lambretta looks good from all angles and is a superior design. Only rival design is the GS.

wrong wrong wrong.. don't get me wrong I think Lambrettas are beautiful, but when they're parked and the front wheel is turned and the long nose is just pointing straight and it's all empty like, that's lookin' like dooky! No Problem though! I already have it covered!!! When I park mine (when I get mine!) I'll just park it and make sure the wheel is pointed forward! Then all will be right! This IS the truth! Other than that.. they're sleek and beautiful machines..

*of course, this, just like pretty much Everything regarding looks is one opinion, as when it comes to looks it's ALL opinion..
** this opinion is pretty much fact!

Ha! That's ok at least we still share an affinity for small frames.

You know the Lambretta series two was made with a turning front fender at a certain point. It was hideous IMHO. Hideous! Neat as an oddity though.

You missed part of my point, I think they're beautiful.. just not when... you know!!! and the one you speak of.. that the one ai hate! doesn't work like it does on a vespa... hard to explain, but those models are the worst! (my O!)

The Spanish made series 2 had turning muddies for a long time. I think the straight ahead mudguard on most lammys is what makes them look like that are moving while sitting still though

What I have learned to like about the lambretta fender is, I can remove it in 15 minutes.

My P or et3 fender was a big forgetaboutit.

These are badass, working on one right now, any tricks on making your own drop bars? What's the set up on that travel tank?

Drop bars are an art and less is more.

A little drop goes a long way. Ive riden some extreme drops and they suck.

Second that.
Had pretty crazy drops on my Honda CB.
Looked really cool, but very uncomfortable.

yes, unfortunately... Some guy from Indy offered me a pretty penny for it, so I couldn't say no.... sometimes wish I had her back though!

And yes, PLEASE build another for the World's sake....

I know the guy who has it now.
I think they changed the engine up a bit, not sure on the specs though.

Jim, I just spray painted it with some shitty paint I had sitting.

The only recent photo is this.

Something about getting a "good ball shot with GoPro"........words to that effect.
