The Lambretta TV175 Series 2 was launched in October 1959. It had an engine based on the Li150 series but with an increased capacity and the crankshaft, barrel, piston and gearbox ratio were changed. The front forks were fitted with external shock absorbers. The rear plate and fork links were redesigned to cope with the extra power. The TV175 models were fitted with a Veglia 120 km/h speedometer face and a dual seat. The ‘Lambretta’ and ‘TV175’ side panel badges were attached to the panels with small nuts as opposed to the riveted badges on the Series 2 Li panels. Often referred to as the ‘tourer’ it had a superb performance coupled with beautiful styling and has been hugely sought after for many years by collectors.
This late example was imported into the UK from Poland in 2021 and registered in the UK around that time. She was on display in a car showroom in Poland we are told. Originally imported into Poland from Italy. She has been painted a bright Red colour over the bodywork which shows no sign of rot with the panels fitting very well. The paint is not perfect. The rough sound deadening paint present as correct inside the panels. The original correct 23mm carburettor, Veglia speedometer, Becme switch, Becme ignition, TV front hub and many other parts are original. The engine is completely standard. We are told she has recently been serviced and pulls with good power. This scooter is a fine basis for a professional restoration. She is registered for the UK roads and ready to go.
