Lambretta inboard disc brake kit for drum linksInbododisukuburekikitto, anyone?

As you might have seen on our new parts page, we have released a new version of our high-pressure cast Lambretta inboard disc brake kit. The unique feature of this version is we have cast the back plate to use common drum links! No longer do you need to find and buy expensive or rare disc links! Only $259 for the whole kit.

We have also made available the inboard disc back plate by itself, so if you have your own original kit and want to use it on a scooter with drum links, you're in luck.

We hope this solution helps a lot of people.

What is the metric equivalent of a 3.5x10 inch scooter tire?
Oct. 6, 2010, 12:29 PM

Yokohama 3.5x10 or 90/100-10 tireMany people wonder what the metric equivalent of a Lambretta or Vespa scooter 3.5x10 inch tire is.

The answer is: 3.5x10 is basically a 90/100-10 tire.

3.5" = 89mm, and heights can vary but are around 100%, so 89mm again, thus 89mm-89mm-10".

With metric sizing the 1st number means mm wide and the 2nd number means height as a percentage of the 1st number. A 90/100 is 90mm wide with a height of 100% of that so 90mm-90mm-10". Almost exactly the same as 3.5x10".

A 100/90-10 tire on the other hand is 100mm wide with a height of 90% of that, so 100mm-90mm-10", the same height but wider than a standard 3.5x10 inch tire. These can rub a bit at the back on Lambrettas and Vespas without any spacing.
