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 which housed the optional speedometer. The whole ride experience was much improved and the LD Mk2 was subsequently a very popular model.

This extremely original example has been in the Stafford area since new. Probably manufactured in 1956 it was probably still in the showroom when the Mk3 was introduced in 1957. It was sold new to a William Roberts of Stafford on February 26th 1957. In 2000 a Raymond Egerton who ran a business transferring registration numbers sold it to the vendor's friend who has sadly recently passed. It is a later Mk2 LD in the rare colour scheme of Duck Egg Blue and Red. The original Red side panel paint is evident and it is believed that it can be uncovered.

We understand that this extremely original example was ridden into the barn in 2000 and had never moved. The original keys for the toolbox and steering lock are present as is a very rare and desirable accessory Indix fuel gauge in gallons, which would have been supplied new by Lambretta Concessionaires. There has been an innovative home upgrade of an original Noemi Rosa Lambretta Series 3 seat added and the choke moved to the front. The scooter is very complete with correct numbers and would probably clean up and be used as it is for the original look.

 

All successful bids must be paid in full by midday the day after the auction at the latest.
