First Wash in Over Thirty Years

Sunday after returning from Waycross, I decided to skip the basketball games on TV and wash the Lambretta.  It sat in a garage for more than thirty years, accumulating dirt, dust and surface rust over the years.  I cleaned it and it helped some.  But it remains looking old and worn.

I have decided, for now, to leave it that way, concentrating on getting the mechanical bits in top form.  Once that is done, I might restore it, but will probably keep it original.

    1. Hi Robert, It is not really white. It is a very dirty looking creamy beige. The cleaned bits are getting closer to white but it will never look like new. I am quite certain that I like it better that way.
