Lambretta Luna Toy

Every day’s a school day at the Lambrettista blog… I’ve not seen one of these before…

A plastic Biemme toddlers bike toy, clearly based on a Luna line Lambretta.

There’s clearly some damage, under the headlight, but if you’re a fan of Bertone’s space age reinvention of the Lammie, you might want this.

See it on eBay


Lambretta LI 126


The Lambretta brand has been applied to many and varied products these days, and you might be surprised to find that an LI 126 isn’t a 125cc scoot with an extra cc thrown in… but a pedal cycle. I’m not a push bike expert, but I’ve seen worse looking treaders. If you fancy one, There’s a good deal on at Cycle King, with 52% off the £499 RRP, down to £299. Available in mens and ladies variants.


UPDATE (2021)

Since I wrote this article – a decade ago – the Lambretta bike seems to have died a death – although the Lambretta brand is currently marketing an e-bike – here:

One of my readers got in touch, asking if I could help him source mudguards for a pair of LI126’s he owns. I’m afraid I couldn’t help… and the mudguards are quite a distinctive part of this bike… If you’ve got any leads on that, please leave a message below, and I’ll pass it on!
