    hi..thought i´d show you whats been keeping me busy for the last year...long story cut short....I swapped my lambretta for a rotted model a shell without roof, chassis , motor or floors

    figured it would be a laugh to do a rod as a learning process!!
    so found a 1930 citroen chassis which had basically been turned into a tractor..but had a nice grill, a knackered steering wheel...and well that about it
    then used the jag motor , gearbox and rear axle with brakes for the drive (miles of cableing to sort out from the hyper complex jag loom!)
    1928 solid axle for up from adapted with modern peugeot disc brakes
    just put a decent rack and pinion set up on as the original citroen steering box was shot and skinny front wheels and tyres . now steers lovely and light
    un silenced straight 6 is very loud and revs at high revs..makes a change from the v8s..(I took it to the spanish rod show
