Spanners Lambretta Workshop Manual Third Edition By Martin Sticky Round
The Complete Spanners manual is the first ever step-by-step guide to rebuilding, running and maintaining the massively popular Lambretta scooter produced in Italy from the late 50's right through to the late 1990s in India.
Models covered include LI-1, LI-2, TV-2, LI-3, TV-3, Special, SX and GP and derivatives. While the manual concentrates on Italian-produced models, there is still plenty in it for owners of Spanish or Indian machines.
The book lay out has been simplified since the first edition but is still in an easy-to-follow pictorial format with hundreds of colour photographs and technical tips to make fixing and using a Lambretta as trouble-free as possible. The information has been compiled with the help of many of the worlds leading Lambretta collectors, restorers, mechanics and tuners. The text is written in the accessible and familiar style of Scootering Magazines long-time staff writer and former editor.

Besides chapters on stripping and rebuilding both chassis and engines in original format, the book also covers advanced engine building to make use of the many improved parts that have become available for these machines over the past 30 years. In a world where original factory parts are no longer available, those rebuilding a scooter need all the help they can get to identify quality components. The book will be of great use to those restoring scooters since it contains information on identifying many of the commonly confused parts from various models.
Appendixes include lists of all the available original and special gearboxes produced and how to identify them, as well as colour wiring diagrams, torque settings and jetting details for standard machines.
