The timing for this new product arriving on my doorstep couldn’t have been better. It arrived on Saturday morning just as I was about to go out to the garage to drop an engine. It’s new from Scooter Center and is very handy to have, as I’ve found out over the last few days. Read on and you could win one.
I’m sure many of our readers have had to drop an engine and maybe won’t necessarily be replacing it straight away. That leaves you with a frame that can be awkward to move about and you just know it will get in your way for the next few days/weeks or months. You end up dragging the frame into a corner, backend either propped up or dragging on the floor. Shifting it from one place to another, or having it sat on your workbench.
BGM Pro Lambretta Mounting Stand
I’ve seen similar engine stands before (Jon Betts at JB Fabrication has made them for a few years) but this is the first time I’ve used one and it’s well worth having. The BGM Pro stand folds flat for storage, comes ready to use and has lockable castor wheels so you can stop your scooter rolling away. It also has a nut and bolt to go through your engine mounting hole on the frame and a lug to fit perfectly over your rear shock mounting point. Just use a suspension nut to secure that in place.
Once fitted the scooter is perfectly stable (see video above) and it allows you to work on the frame very easily. You can buy the BGM Pro Lambretta Mounting Stand from Scooter Center by clicking this link. They cost £88.50.
There’s also a Vespa version that lifts the rear end, either with the engine in situ or removed. They cost £113.57 and can be found here.
