    Who makes the Lambretta chain adjuster pictured in this article, please?

    Happy New Year to you and the rest of the SLUK team.

    On those rear hubs, it’s not just the 18mm threads vs. 16mm, it’s the (tenfold?) increase in splines that will do the most good. The average bloke will look at the big beefy splines on a standard hub and think “That’s got to be the most manly hub I can get!”. Wrong. It’s the extra surface area of each spline that allows it to take up so much more rotational force, just like a finer thread nut/bolt can take more torque than a coarser thread can.

    “Eventually stocks of original parts will come to an end.”

    I’ve been out of the business for 10 years and that hasn’t happened yet…? 😉
