During World War II Ferdinando Innocenti ran a steel tubing factory in the Lambrate district of Milan in northern Italy, producing components for the Italian Air Force and construction. After the war, Innocenti needed to find a new product in order for his business to survive. Production of Lambretta scooters began in 1947. The Lambretta LD Mk1 was first introduced in 1951 as a 125cc model as a successor to the LC. It had covered panels over a tubular frame and had the addition of a torsion bar. This feature remained on all Lambrettas until 1958.The LD also had springs enclosed in the front forks. The Mk2 had a number of improvements. The rear brake was now cable controlled and the gears used a single teleflex cable. There was also a small luggage box that housed the optional speedometer. The whole ride experience was much improved and the LD Mk2 was subsequently a very popular model.

This extremely presentable example was first registered new on 26th November of 1956, by Austin Auto Motors of Aston Road Birmingham and has remained in the West Midlands its entire life. The scooter was fully restored around 4 years ago to a very high standard by Disco Dez Scooters using the original or quality parts wherever necessary, the engine was also overhauled. Renewed all over, the Off-White paintwork is fresh and has a deep shine and the correct detail has been applied with the rubbers and chrome work. The panels all fit very well on the scooter. Our consultant was able to see the scooter running extremely well the time of consignment. In our opinion this level of restoration would come at a price and this scooter, ready to be accessorised represents a good value in relation to the estimate. With a V5C and in running order and ready to be enjoyed.
