Ferdinando Innocenti had an engineering background having established his first workshop at the age of 18. Following the end of WW2, he, like many of his contemporary Italian industrialists required a product that would enable him to rebuild his shattered company based in the Milanese suburb of Lambrate. Therefore, the inspiration for the creation of the first Lambretta scooter can be found, like that of the rival Vespa, in the devastation that afflicted Italy following the Second World War and the country's desperate need for affordable transport. By the 1960s the introduction of TV range established the classic long and sleek Lambretta look that went on to become a style icon of the era culminating in the Bertone designed 'Grand Prix' models of the late sixties.
This incredible looking scooter has been customised as a tribute to The Jam. The stunning artwork that covers every inch of the bodywork is by David Dickinson of DDK in Scarborough depicting classic scenes from Jam posters and album covers. The engraving on most chrome and aluminiun parts is by Adi Clark and Don Blocksidge with the chrome work having been carried out by Karl at Quality Chrome in Hull. The engine is fitted with a TS225 kit breathing through a Mikuni carb and the chassis has been uprated with a disc front brake. An electronic speedo has been added showing engine temperature, a rev counter, fuel gauge, time and speed. This scooter that cost a small fortune to customise will really stand out from the crowd and is ideal for scooter rallies and shows. It is MOTd until October 2024 and comes supplied with a current V5C and some tailor made protective covers.
