Arthur Francis "S" Type

Arthur Francis, who became really famous for his AF "S" type Lambretta, featuring tuning at various stages and two tone paint; these bikes were also recognisable by the "S" added on the legshields and panels. Here is Craig Ballantyne's just finished Arthur Francis 250cc "S" type Lambretta

   

Race Rapido 250cc
The Race Rapido 250cc Kit is made up of a 72mm cylinder, a forged two ring Asso Werke piston kit and a top end gasket set.

This kit is the top of the range. It requires a 60mm Road Race Crankshaft and modification to the neck of the crankcase to accommodate the increase in neck diameter of the cylinder. The original cylinder head has to be opened out to suit the larger bore.
