The Lambretta Li Series 1 was properly launched in April 1958. Some 7 months after the TV175 Series 1 was launched. By then Innocenti had eliminated most of the engine problems that the 175 had. The Li 150 was a dramatic departure from the shaft driven LD range that had preceded it. The new enclosed chain driven engine was centrally positioned under the frame and had more power than the LD. With larger 10 inch wheels and beautifully designed panel work it was a superb scooter to ride and was instant hit.

The Lambretta Li150 Series 2 was launched in October 1959. Based on the successful series 1 with the obvious difference was the position of the headlight on the handlebars for better lighting when cornering. It had an engine based on the Li150 Series 1 but with an increased stroke and several other small modifications all over the scooter that made it the best selling Lambretta of all time.

This is a fully running and really nice presentable example in the ever popular red and white colour. Restored some time ago this is the later version with long rear light. The keys are present for the steering lock and the large and very useful accessory tool box on the inside of the leg shield. She also has a rear luggage rack. There are a large number of MOTs from 1990; these show that the original number was removed from the vehicle at that time as a cherished number. However this proves that the scooter was British registered from new.

Our consultant recently rode this scooter on his visit to the vendor and it performed very well. With V5 it is ready to immediately enjoy on the road.
