A long time ago, I acquired this original Lambretta front Disc Brake Hub along with almost all of the other components required to complete it. It has sat in my garage ever since and has never been used on a scooter.
Original Lambretta front Discs were supplied to Innocenti by Campagnolo and were marked with a 'C' logo cast on both halves of the hub along with the word 'Brevettato' (which literally translates as 'Patented) cast on the actuator side only, which can be seen in the image above. Lambretta was the first 2 wheeled vehicle ever to feature a Disc Brake when it was first fitted to the brand new TV (Turismo Veloce) models.
Hopefully, over the next few days, I am going to remove the original silvery white undercoat, clean, paint and fully service this Disc, before rebuilding it back to working condition.
I have all the parts ready with the exception of the actuator mechanism, which is on order from Rimini.
I hope you find this mini series helpful and interesting.
