The Lambretta is an Italian automotive icon, instantly recognisable from the 1960s to the present day. The bikes were originally produced in Milan, Italy by Innocenti. In 1972 the factory was bought by the Indian government; however, it is the 50s and 60s bikes that remain the original and most sought-after examples.
This example is a 1962 Series 3 Li 150, featuring the more powerful 150cc engine. The outer appearance of the Series III changes drastically compared to the Series II to a much more dynamic and streamlined design which is why the Series III is also called “Slimstyle”. Headset, horncasting, mudguard, side-panels, legshields, floorboards and frame are not only much sleeker, there are also significant savings in production materials and weight.
The bike is finished in a striking yellow and white colour combination and is showing just under 50km since restoration. It is currently U.K. registered and ready to be enjoyed.
