had the chance to photograph some scooters for a local scooter club last week,
as it happens i rode Lambretta scooters complete with loads of mirrors and lamps in the late sixties. i had a mk 2 LI 150 and a Slimstyle LI 150 later
"i was born a mod and i will die a mod" as Paul Weller said.
i dont think this particular LI 125 model was a good or popular choice of Lambretta lnnocentis italian production models, this one was in stunning condition though.
it seems to me there are lots of 125s left around and i think its because they were fairly undesirable in their day when the 150 was the main choice and there may have been more of these left in sheds.
the TV175 mk one was one of the smoothest engines and for me depite the obvious glamour of SX200 i still think the slimstyle TV200 GT was the best lambretta ever made,
get hold of a good original today and you could be sat on around £8k.
anyhow just for the indulgance im posting this 1959 beauty
