welcome to Cambridge Lambretta.     

To all our customers who have found it very hard to get through to us in the last few months, we would like to apologise for the struggle to contact us. We have been in the middle of changing phone suppliers and updating our tin can and string phone system. This has led to some days on end where our phones were not even connected to our building, and they just rang and rang from your end, but we heard nothing! Well fingers crossed, the phones were finally completed yesterday (18/08/14) so we hope to be back to normal. We would like to remind you if you are calling on a Tuesday, this is by far our busiest day, and worst to try and call us. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Performance
TuningThe world of Lambretta tuning has moved on from simple cubic conversion, and some port changes, using modern technology and manufacturing process we have helped to develop new exciting performance products. From Italy comes the Imola, Monza and Mugello range of alloy cylinder kits as well as the ground breaking Varitronic kits. We also carry items from Dell'Orto carbs, including a new range of power jet models, JL performance expansion exhaust and much more. For modern speed, whilst still retaining total reliability we have a product to suit your scooter, what ever your needs. We have a guide of suggested set ups, which can be seen by clicking here

Restorations
RestorationsRight from when we first opened our doors in 1995, we have been producing show winning restored scooters, basing our restorations on quality and perfection. Our passion and expertise is restoring scooters to their former glory, just as they left the factory. Of course if you prefer to modernise your scooter with differing paint schemes, modern performance, or accessories we can oblige. While we will be the first to admit our restorations are not cheap, if your aim is quality and perfection, then check our restoration pages for more information.

Pricing Performance
We are always asked to price up performance engines, with so many choices its hard to do, so now we have a complete page dedicated to helping you choose what it is YOU want, and what you can expect from it.



Rear Exit Fuel Taps
Please be aware after having a number of complaints about the quality of rear exit fuel taps, we can confirm theses are NOT OUR TAPS. When buying from ebay or other sources please take care. There are a number of fast flow rear exit fuel taps listed on ebay that have come in from India. They are a poor copy, and they are NOT a fast flow tap. Further more, the sealing ring is not petrol resistant and more often then not fails very quickly, taps fall apart and break easily, and the nut splits due to being weak. We have tested the flow rate on these taps back to back with a standard tap, a "normal" fast flow, and our rear exit. It is alarming that these sellers are claiming (or being told) that these are fast flow taps, when quite frankly they struggle to give more flow rate then a standard tap. It further amazes us that companies selling these taps have not carried out this simple test themselves. Shocking to know you are buying parts that the sellers don't even know what the f@~@K they are! We have contacted all UK sellers of these taps as we hold UK design and copyright on a fast flow, rear exit fuel tap We spent many months of design and testing OUR taps, as well as strict suppliers manufacturing designs and processes. Don't be fooled by cheap prices, they are not as they seem.


Quick Slips

Once again our friends who brought you the rouge fuel taps that melt and don't flow properly have taken to copying (very badly) our quick slip chain guides.

You will find them all over ebay, so BEWARE don't buy green quick slips from ebay. They are weak, not made from hardened nylon, have much thinner mounting metal for the lower guide, and to date we have had numerous phone calls again complaining to us they break. If you buy SHIT off ebay, phone those people you brought it from, better still don't buy it in the first place!


Super Monza

We have a dedicated web site set up for the exciting Super Monza kit, Click Here for information and details

The first batch of Super Monzas have been delivered to our customers, beginning in November last year. Supplies of the crank, exhaust modified carbs etc have all followed on and it seems we have some banter and excitement between a few of us to see who is on the road first!

We always get asked this! We suggest all Lambrettas will work on the following guidelines.
Mineral oil 4%
Semi or fully synthetic 3%
A standard tank holds about 7.9 litres, from bone dry to brim. Usually from going onto reserve, to filling up quite soon afterwards takes around 5 litres.
Use the handy oil jug below, which gives a 2% measure, and then simply put in one and a half times the measure on the side.
