Simply laid out..

Was chatting to the guys at Retrospective Scooters on a recent visit, while having a nose around at the same time and we came upon a room with prepped and painted complete scooters, waiting to be re-assembled.

Every now and then Retrospective are asked by customers why it costs more to re-paint a Lambretta than it is a Vespa... simply laid out and in terms even I can understand, the above photos illustrate why that is. As you can see a Lambretta has quite a few more body parts than its Italian cousin, which are smaller and a bit more fiddly too such as the frame tube and floor struts, in comparison to the Vespa's larger and fewer surface areas. This in turn equates to more hours spent straightening, blasting, prepping and painting etc. Interesting to see when you view it like this...
