are you using the correct inner tube with the offset valve? Many inner tubes today simply have the valve in the centre of the tube which causes strain when placed into a Lambretta split rim- they will perish and fail eventually.

you could also check the actual hole on the rim which the valve passes through- make sure its smooth and not jagged/ rusty.
