From the archive… I’ve got folders full of random Lambretta imagery… which I’m going to post and hope for the best. If you know anything about the machine or rider, please let me know. If you own the copyright, and you don’t want it on the blog, I’ll take it down. Or if you want a credit or to link to your site, just let me know!

FT Article: How vintage scooters got the market in a buzz
This article from March last year published in the Financial Times, talks about the rising prices of vintage Lambrettas and Vespas – Nice to see DIsco Dez, The Awfully Pleasant Scooter Association and Dean Orton, and The Rimini Lambretta Centre all get a mention!
To mark the recent Burn’s Night celebrations, I thought I’d post this terrific tartan bedecked Series 1, that’s for sale over on eBay. The eBay description is as follows:
“1959 Series 1 Lambretta in outstanding condition.
Rare crossover model which for even more interesting pedigree, Framebreather frame loop on a non-breather frame, as confirmed by several sources to be fully authentic Framebreather end production run crossover.
She has a small block 200 top end and rides amazingly, plenty of get up and go and handles like a dream.
12v electronics for reliability and quality engine internals.
Comes with Feridax flyscreen, Tartan accessories, period stars and accessories,
Original Trombone rack
New BGM tyres & tubes make for perfect all round handling and ride.”
Personally, it’s the decals that make this scooter – I don’t know if it’s actually been to Pisa, Rome, Amsterdam, Innsbruck and the other one that I can’t work out – but I wouldn’t be surprised!
One eBay here.
