Lambetta Scooters


I have noticed many Vespa and Lambretta scooters on ebay that are absolutely perfect. These scooters are 30 or more years old and they look like they just came off the assembly line, maybe even better than that. When you look at the location of those scooters, many say Vietnam, something which may put off some buyers but if you look a little closer, it gets very interesting.

It turns out, there is a booming scooter restoration business in southeast Asia. With a huge amount of raw material in the form of tired and used scooters and access to brand new replacement parts, manufactured, most likely, in China, these little operations transform the old scooters into brand new 30 year old Vespa and Lambretta scooters.

It was not unusual for Mods to customize (almost wrote modify) their scooters a wee bit. Puttin´a few lamps on like so. One want to avoid accidents an´all one does.

I have been known to wear something similar, though mine had a black and white tartan and was originally equipped with a “kilt”.

I always used to wear a pairl like these, though black and white tartan.
