LD150 Scrambler

Scrambler-2nteresting 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!

Lambretta Serveta Puma Cross

light mo

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!

Vintage Lambretta Scrambling video

The Lambretta scrambler that is for sale on eBay that I posted previously comes with some cine film footage of scooter scrambling… which prompted me to do a little search on YouTube. I found this marvelous period video. Who knows… that eBay scrambler could even be on the vid.
I love the precision tools being used for the last minute adjustments… seemed you only really needed 3 tools… a hacksaw, a hammer, and a bigger hammer!

Lambretta Scrambler on eBay

Screen_shot_2011-06-07_at_12
One of the more unique Lambretta’s on eBay at the moment, this scrambler dates from the mid 1960’s, and comes complete with some history and a box of cine film, from period scrambling events!
It’s an amalgam of a 1957 frame (A Model D would be my guess) and LD 150 engine, which has recently had a pro rebuild. It’s not looking terribly road legal… but it’s not for that. Imagine the fun you’d have (and the looks you’d get) blasting about the campsite on a rally on this!
It’s currently sitting at £3,300… which puts it in the same price bracket as a new LN. Here’s the link
