The Lambretta TV175 Series 3 was launched in March 1962 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. The 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 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 recognised as the GT200 to differentiate them from the TV175 models. The first versions had Li style panels and the later versions had SX-type panels with polished flashes and were often sold with a coloured top on the panel.

This extremely original later example of a genuine GT200 was sold new by Horace Rogers Ltd of Nottingham to our vendor's father on the 10th November 1965. It was used by his father with mother as pillion up until the early 1980s with a now 16116 miles on the clock when they had a spill and it was never ridden again and stored in a dry garage until now. It was however MOT’d and taxed annually until 1988. As far as purity is concerned a GT200 stated as that on the first buff logbook (as opposed to TV200) and with fibreglass mudguard from new and the whole scooter is in such original untouched condition. The paint all over is as it was when sold with Gold highlighted panels with no visible touch-ups that we could see and the running in transfer is still visible inside the leg shields. The exception is the visible dent from the accident on the front and the replacement lower headset repaired at the time. The scooter still has its original ULMA/Nannucci accessory rear rack it was sold with and Ulma rubber carpet which is quite perished now. Under the floor mat the floor is in excellent condition as see in the photographs. There is also an accessory fuel gauge in gallons as sold by Lambretta Concessionaires and an ULMA wheel disc in amongst a large amount of spare parts and genuine tools. Spare cables, plugs and bulbs were in the toolbox showing a well-used and loved scooter while on the road. One side panel has an ingenious device as a lever which looks like a classic car handle but it works and shows that this was a used and loved machine while on the road. Everything else appears to be original. The scooter also comes with a selection of genuine manuals including the first edition of the official Lambretta Workshop manual. There are many parts supplied that were found with the scooter including the original TV200 rear frame badge and disc brake windows. Also, the helmet used back in the day and rider’s gauntlets. No attempt was made to start the scooter. It is a lovely precious item and we expect some serious interest in this scooter.
