The Lambretta TV Series 3 range was launched in March 1962 with the 175 model and it was the first scooter supplied with an internal disc brake. It was a remarkable change from the previous TV175 Series 2 with new sleek slim styling. Front shock absorbers were enhanced with extra dampers as in the previous TV Series 2 models. The TV series 3 also had larger silent blocks than the previous engines and it had a very good reputation as a smooth and well-balanced scooter with great handling attributes. The larger engined TV200 quickly followed the TV175's slim style in early 1963 at the specific request of the British importer Lambretta Concessionaires, who wanted an even more powerful model than the TV175 to satisfy their customer base. Genuine TV200 Lambrettas were instantly identified as the GT200 to differentiate them from the TV175 models.

This mid-production example was first registered with the scooter dealer Sid Moram’s of Slough on the 8th of July, 1964. Our vendor was an employee at Moram’s at the time, firstly in the parts department in 1964 and later as a mechanic. It was purchased by our vendor from his employer and paid for on ‘higher purchase’ for approximately a year. It was only transferred to his ownership, however, a few years later, in 1970; he rode it until the mid 1970s when it was laid up when he bought a car and the scooter was stored. In 2006, our vendor decided to have the scooter restored and this was done professionally over a period of 9 months by Cambridge Lambretta at a cost of over £5,500 which was a substantial sum at that time. The original registration number was also successfully reclaimed. He has used it seldomly since having only clocked up 773 miles on the speedometer in 17 years. It still presents very well and our consultant was able to ride it and reports that it rode superbly.

We noted the following details. It still has its original front disc brake and seat with replacement cover. The scooter is now on 12v electrics and it starts easily with bright lights. The engine has been rebuilt with a Mugello 200cc kit with a 30mm Dellorto carburettor with a ‘ram-air’ filter and big bore exhaust to complement. This is an excellent example of an in-demand model with provenance. It is rare to have ‘GT200’ written on the first logbook. Having had the benefit of an extensive and costly restoration, the White paintwork with Blue Metalflake touches and internals, still appears vibrant.
