The Lambretta Lui range was part of the ‘Luna Line’ and was launched in August 1968 as a futuristic masterpiece of Italian design collaboration between Innocenti and design house Bertone, famed for their designs for Ferrari and Lamborghini. A lightweight scooter it was marketed in the UK by Lambretta Concessionaires as ‘The Space Age Look for the year 2000’ in the space race era of the time in 1968. Despite a huge marketing campaign by Innocenti the Luna line sold poorly in general and this has resulted in a fairly scarce amount of survivors. It was one of the last scooters to come out of the famous Milan factory.

A trend in recent times has been to customise the Luna Line scooters into road Tourers and this has been led largely by Dean at Rimini Lambretta Centre. A well-thought-out new engine (ONE 35) with a 135cc capacity has been refined over the last 10 years together with CASA Lambretta and has been tried and tested by Rimini staff on many long rides and rallies. The combination of compatible engineering components has resulted in a machine that can cruise at almost 70mph.

Presented here is a 135cc Tourer that is reportedly using over £3500 in engine parts alone. The parts are pictured in this description and include: CASA engine casing polished by JW Polishing, a CASA 135cc top-end kit, CASA crank, Firefly 12v ignition, 5-speed CASA gearbox, Polini 24mm carburettor, CASA performance maxi box exhaust and BGM adjustable rear shock. The scooter also has a Vega style rear light set up and an inline Spare wheel on customised holder.

The vendor has also registered the correct new capacity 135cc on the V5C registration document. He has also said that he has used the scooter often including recently and that it runs very well but may need some adjustment to the 5th gear which occasionally drops out. He informs us that a competent scooter mechanic will be able to solve this.
