1952 Lambretta D 125 For Sale by Auction

Manufactured by the Italian industrial giant Innocenti, the Lambretta scooter gained widespread acceptance in the 1950s, its cleanliness and convenience in particular appealing to those who regarded the true motorcycle with suspicion. The D (un-enclosed) LD (enclosed) models arrived in 125cc form in 1951 and became available with 150cc engine three years later, in October 1954. The D/LD 125's engine produced 4.8bhp, giving the model a top speed of around 45mph. Production of the Lambretta model D ended at the end of 1956 after over 54,000 had been built; survivors though, are relatively few. The vendor advises us that this model D was restored in Italy by the CEO of a major clothing company. Purchased in France, it has not been ridden while in the vendor's ownership but has been started weekly. Presented in beautiful condition, this rare early Lambretta is offered with sundry bills, a V5C document and a Lambretta Club GB dating letter.
