Description

Italian registration

• The most sought after Lambretta
• The Super Scooter
• Very attractive colours

In response to the Piaggio Vespa, Innocnti Lambretta kept the name of their factory in Lambrate, on the outskirts of Milan. They had their success with their intelligent design, good performance and high reliability. The range was spearheaded by the LD model, a fully faired scooter that was available in 125 and 150cc variants. In 1957, the new TV 175 was equipped with a horizontal engine and a front fender that did not rotate with the handlebars. The letters TV meant "Turismo Veloce", reflecting the personality of a more "sporting" version of this scooter!
This Lambretta TV 175 scooter is part of the second series built by Lambretta (Innocenti). Of particular interest is that the scooter is equipped with a sidecar. It is rare today to find such a combo in such a fine state, but then this one was restored in Italy about a dozen-odd years ago. Very attractive in its pale yellow and cream coloured two-tone hues, this pretty little sidecar comes with a door pocket and spare wheel. Sold with Italian Libretto from that period, it is with highly sought after 175cc engine, and in this configuration it is more powerful than the 125, enabling the possibility of taking a small family with ease!
