Lambrettas were modified for sporting use – almost from day one. There are a few Racing D models out there – I featured this stunner from Dan from Switzerland a while back.
Now, Racing D’s are pretty rare – but as you go back through the alphabet, the models get even rarer. The one featured here is 1951 Lambretta Model C 125 Racer – finished in the classic racing red!
She has all the bits you’d expect to see, such as:
- Metal endurance petrol tank
- Dropped handle bars trimmed down legshields
- extended racing seat
- Rear sets modified rear brake to suit both riding positions
- Vortex head
- Bellmouth carb
A lovely piece of Lambretta racing history which has been “ridden in anger” many times, this scooter has featured in Italian magazines. It’s being sold by Parrspeed Scooters – a long established Lambretta specialist based in Chorley, Lancashire. They purchased the scooter from a private collector in Italy who had owned and raced her for many years. The scooter is now UK registered and comes with a new UK V5.
It’s for sale on eBay for a fiver under £6,500 here – which, with Lambretta prices the way they are, seems a pretty good deal for something so unique.
