Just found this buried in a buddy's shop, 1980 Lambretta Moped - 1.5 HP

I have so much fun on these damn pedal start moped's, can't wait to get it running. Already have the gas tank and carb taken off and apart.

The gas tank is beyond rusted on the inside so I'm going to try a few processes that I think will clear it up. Carb looks good, just the normal gunk in it after sitting for over 10 years. I got the piston moving last night after a bunch of defogging oil and some patience. All of the electrical systems work.. minus a burnt out running light and wires that were chewed threw by a mouse that nested inside the headlamp.

Just another toy to keep me busy, and at the price of $40-if-I-get-it-running... can't beat it!

That looks very fun, and super clean for it to be found buried inthe shop!

It's honestly not as clean as this picture makes it look! haha I've barely made a dent in the cleaning process so far.

Cool! I've got 2 similar scooters (both peugeots) that I use to cruise around the neighborhood. Fun!

I'm thinking it's going to make a perfect cruiser for going up and down lakes during ski tournaments this season
