  • Manufactured in and imported from France

In 1950 Innocenti granted Robert Fenwick, a manufacturer of utility vehicles the rights to manufacture the LD models in France in the city of Troyes. The first versions to be sold were direct Italian imports. In 1952 production started of French-built LD’s and these had a variety of differences from the Italian models. These changes were mainly due to French regulations, for example, there were 4 different horn castings to accommodate a slightly larger headlamp requirements. The choke, fuel filler and fuel taps were moved to arguably a more convenient location (something Innocenti later copies on subsequent Italian models). Societe Industrielle de Troyes produced almost 200,000 scooters and 10,000 three-wheelers in its scooter production time and these are regarded as high-quality attractive Lambretta variants now by collectors.

This example has been restored some time ago in an attractive Baby Blue colour. It is complete but needs some attention. The scooter has not been used for some time. Many of the important parts including original lights, speedometer, frame plate, front badge and are present. There are also, nowadays, a number of performance kits for LD’s which include new carburettors and it could be possible that this example is a good candidate for customisation. It could also be displayed as a static ‘objet d’art’. Our vendor is selling only due to ill health and is offered with ‘no reserve’.
