Lambretta Serveta Puma Cross

LamServetaPumaHere’s a bit of a rarity I stumbled across on eBay, a dual Lambretta/Serveta branded scrambler style moped 50cc motorcycle (It ain’t a moped – see the comments).

Now, normally when you see the words ‘very rare’ you can take them with a pinch of salt, but this is the real deal, especially in the UK – although slightly less so in it’s native Spain. Dating from the late ’70’s the Puma came in two variants, the ‘Endure’ and the ‘Puma Cross’ the Puma Cross having 5 gears – itself pretty unusual for a moped.  It’s in need of a little TLC, but comes with a bunch of spares. The only bit that doesn’t look quite right to me is the exhaust… I think the original may have come up a higher, following the lines of the mudguard…

Rarity usually demands a premium in the Lambretta world, but this is currently sitting at just £400. If you’re like the look of it, or just fancy something a bit different for your Lambretta collection get your bid in!

  1. With all do respect. That’s a motorcycle, not a moped. In the States to call anything a moped that does not require bicycle style pedaling to start it, borders on heresy. You have a fantastic blog, keep up the good work. Cheers.

    • You are entirely correct Matt, and I should know better. I hate it when people refer to scoots as mopeds. In my defence it’s a pretty generic term for a 50cc motorbike over here, but as you say, if you can’t actually pedal it, it ain’t a ‘ped!
      Post amended. Thanks for the kind words about the blog.
