Lambretta LD150

Before World War II, Ferdinando Innocenti founded a successful engineering company making steel pipes and joints still used today for scaffolding and named ‘Tubi Innocenti’. Just after the war he saw the potential for an economic means of transport and created the Lambretta, so called because its factory was in the east suburb of Milan, Lambrate. Lambretta had a tubular frame, to which the body panels were fixed and the engine was a small single cylinder two stroker. In 1957, the Lambretta, which up to then was always grey, was enriched with a two-tone finish: the two rear lids, the front and the handlebar nacelle could be painted in Light Blue, Emerald Green, English Blue or Deep Red.
The scooter we are proposing today comes from the final series of the LD150 model, it is painted in the attractive two-tone colours of Coffee and Cream with matching seats and a rather attractive wicker picnic hamper located on the rear luggage rack above its spare wheel. Powered by a two-stroke 150cc engine, this iconic and rare motorcycle would grace any collection or would look great as a ‘prop’ for a café or restaurant. Very chic and retro with charm to boot!
