    Yep my DMW had a box section frame but for the life of me cannot remember the model,re the lambretta ,due to an accident on a b31 I had a plate put in to my wrist so had been to the hospital and had 23 stitches taken out and a new stuky fitted so my pal gave me a run in to leith on his lambretta on the way along ferry road a brand new triumph polis car drove out of a side street across the road and a polisman jumped out and tried to wave us down ,no chance we skelped in to triumph just behind his rear wheel and i went over the boot and landed on the road about 7 feet past the car stuky in bits and a gashed leg,police ran me back to the same hospital that had just taken out the stitches on my wrist,hospital wanted to put another 5 stitches in my leg ,refused the stitches so they refused to redo stuky or even put a plaster on my leg and told me to go, had a few choice words with the polis but never went on a lambretta again.

    . Did you ever see a DMW with the 2stroke 250t villiers (spelling) trailing link front forks as far as i remember ,i had one when i was 16 and was good bike WHEN it ran on the 2 cylinders. Aother queer one that uses the 250t engine was a scooter called i think a dayton abatross ,very fast for a scooter but **** looking ,my pal owned that , the wifes brother had 1952 bantam and i was sitting behind him on my b33 at lights.let his engine revs drop till it nearly cut out but gave it a rev ,lights changed and he put it in gear and the bantam shot back just missing me , engine had reversed itself,never seen it before or after. waffled on a bit there,

    heard they were launching the new 750 this year (i think) Cousin owned a s11 and he said engine was a lot smoother than the bonnie but as you say the gearbox was a LOS ( Brother had a bonnie and we spent more time picking up bits that had vibrated loose) edit to say LOS -lump of sh~~~

    Once you got used to the gears it rarely went in to a false neural ,,only had a big prob with one of the gearbox ,gears and clutch worked fine when cold/warm but clutch went when it was hot,replaced all the clutch plates rod and adjuster to no avail even lost a tooth on third trying to drop a gear eventualy found it was the gearbox cover flexing when hot hence pushrod was not getting the throw to release the plates ,put it down to ****y indian porous ally but had a spare box minus a few bits and thankfully 3rd gear and cover was fine.

    Still make them in india but not that model due to emissions ?? ,as far as i remember non carb and electric start now,had 4 of them at same time ,2 350cc 2 500cc ,kept this one as it smashed the wifes ankle in three places when she tried to kickstart it.they had a simular idea to the valve lifter but was a hole through the head, got 1 bike for £40 as the guy could never get it started ,took me all of 30 minutes to fix the cable that actuated the lifter and start the bike,did offer him the bike back at the same price but his wife said no thanks.Gearbox was also an innovation in that it had a extra lever that put it it neutral regardless of the gear it was in
