Waste of an rg500 engine imo but I bet it turns on Jamie Oliver wannabes.

Shurely scald your leg on that yoke ?

With proper gearing I'd say there wouldn't be many would hang with that RG scooter away from the lights.

No it isn't, it's a perfect use for one.
Doubt it turns them on, they get all moist over modern twist and gos with tacky accessories bolted on and would see that bike as a waste of a good lambretta frame.
If you can't see the appeal in making something designed to ride slowly to the shops on go ridiculously fast then you'll never understand and neither will the Jamie Oliver types.

I can't think of a better place for that engine. It's better being used in that than sat in an RG500 getting polished in some wanker's garage.

It's appeal is not that limited, I like it. But for the love of god don't ask me not to burn yer cornflakes. My cooking skills are so bad I've ended up with errosive gasteritis.
