Again that year the engine gave very few problems, it did Cobblesoul, Euro Lambretta, a few nationals and came in 3rd at the Coast to Coast.

On the way back from Coast to Coast I decided that as that would be the last rally of the year for me I would give it some down the motorway, with it mind that as I would be rebuilding it again over the winter anyway it didn’t mater too much if I blew it up. It went amazingly well as you can see in the next video.

Winter 2012/13 I stripped the engine down to do a rebuild just to check everything was ok. While it was apart I put what I thought was new piston rings in. I was rushing the build because i had left it late and needed to get it back working to use to get to the Scooterist Meltdown at Kalkar in Germany at the end of January.
For 2013 I had also been building a mat black Lambretta Eibar Winter Model which was to be powered by the H2 top end. Just in time, I got the Lambretta sorted and headed off for Harwich to catch the ferry to Holland. During the trip the engine ran fine but got increasingly hard to start, as can be seen in this video.
