Tearing apart the Serveta    (February 2011)

And who doesn't tear apart a vintage scooter in their living room?

I bought Sticky's manual. Officially known as "The Complete Spanner's Manual: Lambretta Scooters" Second Edition. and skimmed it cover to cover. Then I went back and read carefully the disassembly process. Then more skims, more reads. Worth it. There's a specific order to taking things apart and knowing that order is more than a little helpful.

Chloe was surprisingly tolerant of me using the living room as a garage. Bet I'll have to let her ride it.

Electrical Spaghetti. I labeled the bejeezus out of it.

Serveta throttle assembly.
Should be no problem to put back. Right?

Only the engine and front wheel left on.
