We really want you to come to the Curd Rally. You may have noticed already.
Preregistration for the rally is on from now until July 31. If you register now, you get free patch and you get 5 free raffle tickets. The patch is beautiful, but trust me, you WANT the raffle tickets. The prizes in our raffle are always great, but this year the raffle is bigger than ever and we’re raffling off an Series 3 li 150. Corey’s been busy getting the bike raffle and road worthy and you can look through this blog to see a lot of pictures of the work that’s gone into it.
If you don’t register before the end of July, you’ll be able to register on site, but we’d love to know that you’re coming either way.
ps – I didn’t mean it. Don’t register now, and don’t by raffle tickets. I want to win the bike myself. 🙂
I expect this year’s group ride to look something like this. Probably noisier though.
New to this year’s Curd Rally is a swap meet. Bring out any parts that have been cluttering your basements and garages for too long. There’s a good chance that someone needs that stuff and you can turn it into a little cash or trade for something that you’ve been looking for. We’re planning on holding the swap meet at the campground after we return from the group ride.
Check out the schedule for the weekend on our details page.
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.
