Description

"Manufactured by the Italian industrial giant Innocenti, the Lambretta gained instant acceptance in the immediate post-war years, not the least because of its cleanliness and convenience. Predecessor of the Li and TV series, the D (un-enclosed) LD (enclosed) modes arrived in 125cc form in 1951 and became available with a 150cc engine three years later in 1954. The D/LD 150’s air-cooled two-stroke single cylinder engine produced 6bhp giving the model a top speed of around 50mph. Although over 54,000 were built, very few survive today.
This rare example of this iconic motorcycle is presented in cream with two black seats and a rear mounted spare wheel. The history file contains a letter from Lambretta Club Great Britain confirming the frame and engine number as well as the year of manufacture according to their records. A great addition to any collection or just used as a run-around.
