    My Dad used to ride a Lambretta in his youth and has wanted one ever since. He found this beauty online and had to buy it. It's a 1964 lambretta LI150 (I think) In fantastic condition. I'm not sure how much he'll use it but he really loves it so far! He's calling it a second childhood but I call it a midlife crisis :wink: I want to use it to drive to uni but my license doesn't allow me!

    :rotfl: They are!! I don't know why MOTM re-jiggled them but I sent them from my phone so perhaps to do with that. I'll put new ones up!
    I am jealous of him, he wouldn't even let me ride it round the block! I badly want a go.

    This thread sure takes me back.
    In my youth I had a Lambretta SX200 in the days of the Mods & Rockers.
    To follow the trend, I adorned mine with loads of chrome fittings including 16 [yes 16] wing mirrors, font and rear carriers, roll bars etc.etc.
    I rode it wearing my parka with the obligatory Union jack flag on the back. :lol:
    Those were the days.

    Yep, a false one I hasten to add.
