WHAT WERE THE VEGA MODS? No, we’re not talking about putting lights and mirrors on a Lui 75. It’s all about the other things that we did to the scooter that Dean recently rode on the 2600km road-test trip for the forthcoming Casa 135 kits. One of the things we have been most asked about is what suspension we used? BGM front and back is the answer. The rear shocker is a Black Edition that we re-bushed and the front dampers were plug n’ play, albeit with our special front axle nuts (Item: X66) and two weld-on brackets (Item: X81) at the top. The usual poor quality Luna line suspension issues were completely out sorted out in one fell swoop, and he had excellent handling (despite carrying 35kg of baggage). These parts though are not just for Lui/Vega/Cometa models and the hub nuts can be used on ALL lambretta models (they are a copy of those made by Italian manufacturers Omega from the 1970’s). The same applies our top brackets which are a million times better than standard Lambretta damper mounting brackets as they will take any abuse you put them through. Want better handling? Then get yours now!
07/09/2018  Prova stradlae per la SST265 e Casa 135!
This coming Sunday - or Monday - two of the RLC crew (along with Roberto Barone on his smallframe Vespa) will be riding back over to the UK once again. Why? No particular reason other than proper product testing. We have a few products to test including the finalised version of the box-type exhaust for the ‘Touring’ version of the SSR265 motors, i.e. the SST265. This is fitted to the shops silver Serveta and young Luke Salvin will be riding that. Dean gets the smallframe choice and will be riding a Lui (Vega) 75, fitted with a prototype ‘Casa 135’ kit. These are plug ‘n’ play kits designed to fit any 50, 75, 10 or 125cc smallframe Lambretta J range or Lui, Vega and Cometa. A rusty Italian market Lui 75 is being (re)built up as you read this, and hopefully will be done in time for the set-off. The frame was changed at the last minute for one that is already registered as a 150cc, so we can legally use the scooter on everything from country tracks, A and B roads, through to motorways. The chosen route will take us across Italy, over the Alps near Mont Blanc, up through France where we’ll get a ferry across from Le Havre to Portsmouth. Then it’s over to Weston, followed by a motorway blast over to Southend. The return route will be via Belgium, Germany, Lichtenstein, Austria and finally back down through Italy which should give the scooters a test-run of about 4000km’s in total. We'll also be meeting up with Andy @ ScooterNova Magazine at some point, so he can road test both machines. Once we’re back, we’re check the parts, make any necessary changes and then they go into production. Product testing at its finest?
29/08/2018  NOVITA'! Copertina sella Silme per Lambretta GP / DL
NEW SILME SEAT COVERS FOR LAMBRETTA GP/ DL MODELS! Casa Lambretta have remade the seat covers for Silme seats, as factory-fitted to some Lambretta GP /DL models. Silme seats have an unusual seat frame and the covers for Giuliari type GP seats don’t fit, as the fold-over securing tags are in the wrong places. Silme seats and covers are unique in that they only have 4 of these tags per side, as opposed to the 6 found on Giuliari seats. These new seat covers are Italian made and fit perfectly. The code is C315s and the cost is Euro 100.00 / GBP £ 90.40 each. Available now from Rimini Lambretta Centre
04/08/2018  IN ARRIVO! Accensioni ORIGINALI Casatronic Ducati per Lambretta
THE ONLY GENUINE DUCATI I GNITION FOR LAMBRETTA SCOOTERS! Casa Performance have been working flat out with the Ducati technicians to finalise the forthcoming ‘Casatronic Ducati’ ignitions. The collaboration between Vittorio Tessera of Casa Lambretta and Ducati sees a welcome return of the ‘Ducati’ name being associated with Lambretta scooters. The 12V-120W, 12 pole digital pre-production prototypes in the picture are being tested now at the Casa Performance workshops in Rimini and as soon as the summer shut-down is over, they will go into full production. And remember, the ‘Casatronic Ducati’ ignitions are the ONLY GENUINE ignitions for Lambretta scooters that Ducati produce and have that name. Watch this space.
03/07/2018  Aggiornamento kit Casa 135 per Lambreta J, Lui, Vega Cometa + J!
Today we have a lot going on in the RLC workshops and one job is to get the prototype ‘Casa 135’ kits up and running. One is being fitted to Tony Tessier’s Vega racer and the other into Mickyboy’s orange Lui, as can be seen here. We’re looking to fire this one up with a Dell’Orto 25mm carb and a Chiselspeed exhaust that Martin Cook has sent us down to test. More news to follow.
