    I have to say I really don’t like this new move towards coloured anodised stuff from Casa and a few others. The parts look like they’d be more at home on a spotty oik’s Peugeot than a tasteful classic Lambretta.

      It is a matter of taste on the outside of a scooter I agree, but anodising serves a useful protective purpose and you can’t get much more hidden than a Lambretta drive plate 🙂

        That’s true, but those new disc brakes – Saxo-tastic!

    I like that !. Just looking at it you can tell that it’s a quality item. Better than the Hallite washers which seem to come in varying thicknesses causing the crank to rub on the plate.

    Looks good but surprised they still used the screws needing a flat bladed screwdriver, I thought the allen/hex bolts were the 21st century alternative and less damage prone to cack-handed attempts of removal 🙂

    This piece was originally developed by a bloke from Austria. Casa stole the design IMO. Very poor.

      @Benji : we have done a deal with Martin and he is being looked after. All’s cool and there’s no dirty work going on. We didn’t do a straight copy as we wanted to sort some issues out with his design, but as the basis for our project was similar, we thought it only right to contact him.

    Re the screws – I`m pleased to see the slotted screws back, I like many went to the allen/hex but found varying quality so have gone to back to slotted several rebuilds ago – I`ve seen as many cack handed knackered allens as slotted in recent times.

    Like most things it down to the quality of the part and the tools you use.

      I like slotted screws as well. With the right size screwdriver you can exert decent torque, but if you round a hex-head then it really is hard to get them out.
