Not a lot of details on this Lambretta LD, but it looks very clean! The scooter is it’s in Poland, and is on sale on eBay for £6k. Here’s the link.
As it’s the weekend, I’m bringing you a little bit of art for your delectation. This fantastic gouache painting, entitled ‘scooter ride’ is by Els Vliegar, an Illustrator and surface designer from the Netherlands. You can check out more of her work on her site, here.
Expect to see more Lambretta art on the blog soon!

This would make a nice little addition to your LD or D Lambretta… An original NOS (New Old Stock) Fuel Gauge. It’s in fantastic condition and even comes in its original box – a thing of beauty in its own right. Available on eBay, here.
I got sent a link from Olivier in Toulouse about these fabulous aluminium and resin models based on scooters from “the golden age”. The models are going to be produced in a limited series soon, through Ulele, a European crowdfunding site.
I get sent a few things like this… scooter related ‘merch’, and to be honest, a lot of it is pretty poor. I think these are great though… Olivier has managed to convey the essence of each scooter in the minimum number of elements; really, really cool.
As well as LD, (probably still the most popular Lambretta in France), and a Vespa, there is a rather lovely Peugeot. The models aren’t cheap, but, as ever, you get what you pay for. They’d make a great present for anyone who loves their classic scoots.
A lovely little movie about a family Lambretta that was lost for twenty years before being found again. There’s English subtitles, if you’re French isn’t quite up to scratch.

nteresting scrambler on eBay, no visible frame numbers, so it will have to remain an “off-roader”, but it’s got visible engine numbers. The fish-tail exhaust is pretty cool!

Becky posted a picture of her Mum, who was “Miss Lambretta” back in the day…
Must say, this is a cracking pic that sums up a bygone era. A classic beauty, on a classic beauty!
Let us know more of the back story Becky, and I’ll update the post.
If you’ve got any old Lambretta pics, let me know, and I’ll happily put them up on the blog. Thank you for your patience, while there has been a short ‘hiatus’ in posting – more soon.
TWO Lambrettas for Christmas of course! There’s a matching pair of LD’s on eBay at the moment. I must admit, if I found £11k down the back of the sofa I’d be tempted.
Here they are on eBay
There’s a lovely LD over on eBay in in unmolested ‘time warp’ condition.
