  • A former prize (2023) in an ‘Aspire' competition and supplied by PM Tuning
  • Professionally restored and customised by John Thomson
  • Originally a British registered from new Li150 Italian model
  • Dazzling array of customised modifications
  • V5C for use on UK roads

From the history file we can see that this attractive customised Lambretta was originally Red and White then painted Green two-tone and has now been revitalised into a one-off show special with show-quality airbrushed paintwork. It has a very long list of modifications and performance upgrades which have been described in the ‘Aspire’ competition information including: Original Li 150 engine with Mugello 177cc kit fitted, chrome wheels, stainless rear rack, custom number plate surround, new tyres, front mount spare wheel with new tyre, stainless steel stand, stainless steel nuts and bolts all round, custom slope back seat with perforated red piping, 'O' ring ‘Sundance’ grips, stainless steel running strips, stainless steel front edging, Sterling polished exhaust, custom CNC polished alloy kick-start, front disc brake conversion, hydro master cylinder with braided stainless steel hose, chrome front dampers, stainlesss steel fork boot covers, CNC custom rear brake pedal, blasted engine casings, oversize 25mm carburettor, 12v conversion, uprated rear shock, new cables throughout, Casa key operated ignition switch conversion, and CNC front disc mount conversion.

This scooter has been subject to a substantial professional customisation and performance upgrade. We can see evidence of previous dyno-testing and the good reputation of PM tuning as the supplier of the scooter to the prestigious Aspire standard of prizes. All the keys are present and the scooter had a voluntary MOT at the time of the competition earlier this year, the scooter is registered as a 125cc model so is potentially learner-friendly.
