Still haven’t registered for the rally? If scooters, camp fires, vintage firetruck grills, and friends aren’t enough to get you out of the house, there are a couple other reasons to be in Ottawa on August 15.
Festival de la Curd – http://festivaldelacurd.ca/en/
Presented by Fromagerie St Albert, the Festival de la Curd is in it’s 20th year. The official program will be available soon. It’s sure to have lots of activities for all age groups.
Craft Beer Week – http://www.nationalcapitalbeerweek.com/
The final week of Craft Beer Week coincides with the Curd Rally this year and includes and show cases the best local breweries and eateries. There are a lot to chose from. Definitely a great way to pass evening or afternoon.
If you’re looking for another rally to attend before this years Curd Rally, you should check out the Halifax Scooter Council’s site. Their Rally in the Valley is the weekend before Curd. Go there, then do a big group ride to Ottawa for Curd on August 15. 🙂
The effort to turn the pile of parts back into a Lambretta continued. The buffers and the glove box door were fitted to the bike.
New rubber was put on the glove box and it was installed in the frame.
The fuel tank was reattached to the frame.
If you haven’t seen the promotional video done for EuroLambretta 2014, be sure to check it out on Lambrettista.net. We don’t have a promotional video for Curd 2014 yet (any volunteers?), but if you’re feeling nostaligic, be sure to check out this video from last year.
The reassembly has begun for real and with Adam’s help, Corey has started knocking of the items on the assembly checklist.
First the bearing tracks, and protection covers were fit onto the fork tube, along with the chrome headset support ring.
Then the stand was fitted to the frame.
and the cables and wiring loom were positioned loosely and secured with a little masking tape to keep them in place while the work continues.
The reassembly begins – with cleaning. It’s not a fun job, but it pays off when the project is back together and everything is looking clean and shiny. As you can see in the photos, a lot of care has been taken to make these parts look as good as possible.
This is Corey’s 25 steps to raffle scooter reassembly. Many of these are already done. I’ve been falling behind on my blogging. Corey is tough to keep up with. Expect more blog posts and pictures coming.
Note: The Easy Button is the most important tool in Corey’s garage. There is an online version if you don’t have a real one on your workbench:
A new sponsor this year is going to turn our Saturday night barbecue into a pretty cool event. They have volunteered to provide the grill. It’s a 1951 Chevrolet Maple Leaf fire truck complete with a 230 ci inline 6 cylinder engine, a 3 speed transmission and an 8 burner grill!
Thanks Gal Power. I think we’re all looking forward to seeing this in person and parking a few scooters beside it to get some great photos.
