Inspired by US military lightweight 'scooter' transportation of WWII and manufactured by the Italian industrial giant Innocenti, the Lambretta scooter gained instant acceptance in the immediate post-war years, its cleanliness and convenience in particular appealing to those who regarded the true motorcycle with suspicion. In the UK, Italian scooters were adopted as favoured transport by the 'Mods' becoming one of the enduring style icons of the 1960s. Following the unreliable TV 175 Series 1, Lambretta went back to the drawing board to create one of its all-time greats: the 'Li'. Built as a 125 or 150, the classic Li used the bore/stroke dimensions of the preceding 'D' Series but housed its entirely new engine in modern bodywork similar to that of the TV.
Having been the subject to restoration work some 8 years ago this attractively presented Lambretta has been part of a collection of two-wheeled machines. With correct numbers this example possesses an attractive pastel colour scheme and a seat trimmed in Tan, providing a sporty-look to this Li. Sparingly used since restoration, this Li comes complete with its V5C, old Italian logbook, and various paperwork. Certainly one for the vintage scooter collector.
