    Weather's nice, I'll go out on the RD...

    ...for about a mile of it running like shit again, FFS. The carb has had more baths than Cleopatra, the petrol couldn't be cleaner if you polished it and the jets have been changed which apparently made it work properly. Except it doesn't and it definitely seems fuel related.

    Aye, a mate had one, they're Spanish built Lambrettas iirc and made at the same time SIL (Scooters India Limited) were about, I think. Just to confuse the issue a bit more, there was also the Allwyn Pushpak (Pushcrap) which were Indian.  I had a mildly tuned (15BHP) AP 200 and it went like an absolute rocket, but was horribly throttle twitchy and didn't like being ridden unless flat out. Fine on a  long run but just not nice at low speeds.
     
    Mate of mine has a marron coloured one of them, they look class to be fair. He's saying it'll pull 80 (and sit there, iirc) no danger. Managed 83/84 on the Scomadi once down a not huge hill, probably had more in it too.
     
    It's ridiculous, given the number they've sold. There must be any number of new unregistered ones about too, so you'd think they'd keep some back for parts until the situation improves.

    Not big or clever, but the old  Expert 2.0HDi still doesn't fail to amuse.  You can just about light up the wheels in 3rd, and it's been the winner in countless traffic light GPs. Todays efforts (especially against a Poxwagen T4 van)  were pretty impressive, tainted slightly by losing to an old 1 series  BMW later on.

    This. I think a lot of the knowhow from the previous setup and experienced staff has gone. Some of the die sets are essentially dusty paperweights. It would be interesting to see just how tightly they could be pinned down to replicate a period plate which the old-school Tippers once produced. Much as the product is of a pretty good quality (and speedy service), I got the impression that they'd prefer not to spend time chatting about their products and just crack on with getting the orders processed. It's a bit of a shame for a company with their history but they always look to be working flat out whenever I'm in there, so I guess they're working to the max with their staffing. 
    Do you remember when there was a big thing on social media a couple of years ago when a lass ordered a Tippers plate for her classic motor and the finished product was a bit substandard? The response from one of the co-owners was less than professional and he basically told her to sod off. Once she mentioned it on antisocial media and people got sharing, the co-owner turned things around very quickly and re-made her plates, apologised and sent a huge bunch of flowers to her door. They're a bit conflicting with their business model really.
