The DL200 was the last of the great Lambretta scooters that rolled off of Innocenti’s production line in Milan. Produced from January 1969 until April 1971 it is said a total of only 9350 DL/GP200s were made and less than 1000 were electronic versions. The DL200 followed the SX200 and retained the engine prefix of SX200 before the serial number. The iconic bodywork followed the trends of the day of the early 1970s. The Bertone design was more streamlined than its predecessors with a new 22/2 frame and rectangular headlight. There were however significant improvements to the engine over the SX including: improved crankshaft, a complete overhaul of the gearbox ratios and improved Ducati ignition. The electronic version went even further with a 6v electronic ignition and CDI unit and these today are extremely collectible. The only immediately noticeable difference between the DL and GP Electronics was the battery being absent from the DL version, and different front panel badge.

This 1971 manufactured DL200 Electronic is in a challenging condition and will prove to be a project for only the most proficient Lambretta enthusiast. We can only guess what has happened to this poor machine as the frame is generally solid but looks like the scooter has misbehaved and has been attacked by a hammer. However, having said that it is in its original state and so many original and almost impossible to find parts are there and this can be clearly seen by examination of the photographs. Starting with the electrics she has 6v red original CDI 323901 with black wire and presumably the original electronic stator plate. The ignition switch is the original with key number 162 visible. The light switch is the original. The seat frame is the original Guiliari. The cables appear to have never been removed are all fastened with the correct straps and have the correct grease nipple points. The original KM speedometer is present and stopped at 10222 kms. The brake adjusters are the original late short versions found only on late GP/DLs. The plastic parts are also original black including the petrol flap. The correct ball-end levers, shark teeth and cast badges front and back are all present. The engine appears to be complete and original with correct kick start but the casing has significant damage. The carburettor and exhaust are missing but these are not hard parts to obtain. The side panels are missing but also standard DL/GP panels are identical. The front hub and disc brake all appear to be complete.

This is a very rare opportunity for the most serious restorer or conservator of Lambrettas if you are up to the challenge.
