These shots are from the really early days of my Lambretta adventure at the family garage in Lakeside, probably around 1982 or so. Check out the stacks of N.O.S. Innocenti engine cases, headset bottoms, toolboxes, complete original gray cables with inline oilers, etc.!

Our days and nights were filled with bootlegged versions of live Clash and Jam concerts on cassette, rides to 7-11 on the D to get Big Wheels, and avoiding the crazy lunatic motocross fanatic who lived up the road. It seemed like every time we took the scoots out, he would magically show up on his CR250 and try to scare us into the ditch, blasting past us on his dirt bike wearing nothing but shorts and a helmet.

Yep, those were the good ol' days!
