I took some pictures today of my scooters. I just added the Lambretta a couple of days ago:
63 Lambretta LI 125 (175cc)+other stuff
71 Vespa Sprint Malossi 210 +other stuff
79 Vespa P200E +other stuff
05 Vespa PX150 malossi 166cc +other stuff

The Lambretta actually looks very very rough but it has some goodies: 25mm del orto, Clubman exhaust, 175 Cylinder kit,12Volts conversion. It starts on the first try.

Thanks!! I want to go for a ride on the Lambretta tomorrow and get the Tom-Tom GPS and see the top speed. This scooter needs minor hardware for some of the floor panels and a couple of other cosmetic things but I am absolutely not going to paint it not even if you put a gun into my head.

This is one kind of scooter that will remain like this for as long as I own it, I always wanted a beat up look on a scooter and I got what I asked for.

The paint is faded, scratched,dented,oxidized, dusty, greasy..you name it. I purchased from a lady that owned a few lambrettas and all the sudden she was moving and wanted to sell everything.

The main reasons why I purchased the LAMBRETTA:

1)Local purchase
2) low/air price
3) Modifications done to it by the same shop that service my vespas

It has a Clubman exhaust, 25mm del Orto and a 175 cc cylinder kit with head plus a 12volts conversion. This scooter starts on the first kick.
Lambretta was on my wish list and although I seen many for sale over the years on scoot.net I never felt like going on a trip and going through the hassle to ship one, my time, etc. I figured that this was a good way to own one a a reasonable price and if I get tire of it I would sell it.

Insurance runs $119 for all scooter for the year, a real bargain if you ask me...

I saw the first pic and immediately thought Abbey Road.

The second pic would make a great Christmas card.

Nice stable. Thanks for posting.

That's a proper family - very cool 8)

Is the Sprint an original Piaggio colour? It looks like a mid 70s 'Moon White'. I'm restoring a '75 GTR that has the same frame and musing over colours to picture the finished job, and the GTR was produced in a white...

The sprint has a newer coat of paint but I am not sure if it is original. I think it is though because it has a couple of weak spots in which the paint has been chipped and I only see one color.

The history on the Vespa Sprint is that I purchased with a badly running p200 engine on it, then I put a stella bone stock engine and it was too slow and decided to buy new p200 engine cases and put an old 210cc malossi kit that I had.

Nice fleet! I like the I-don't-care Lammy a lot.

Can you tell me your impressions of the differences riding(& fixing) the older P200 vs the much newer PX150? Newer one's gonna be more brakes & less power I suppose, and what else?

i'm feeling the ratty look of that lammy. i went searching for more pics after seeing yours in the antique plates thread. nice bike.

a project of mine looking like that, with just about every other bit of body hardware colored/aged differently.

one suggestion: put that spare tire holder behind the legshield and ditch the weird looking rear rack. it sort of looks like something you'd find on a stella.

Cool!!!
You are just like me... My husband just doesn't understand that each Scooter rides different and each has their own feel.. Depending on my mood I just pick the right scooter and head out the door. Love your collection. Clap emoticon Clap emoticon Clap emoticon Clap emoticon Clap emoticon

The newer PX150 is the way to go as far is comfort. The disc brakes, electric starter, oil injection,powerful light, nice speedometer and fuel gauge is a plus. The standard cosa clutch compliments the already best to ride P series (in my opinion)

You nail it. I feel that way. Even if the exhaust was different it would make a different on the power delivery or sound. I like them all, I wish I had a bigger garage and more time to ride but I might extend the collection in the future.

Thanks for the suggestion. The Lambretta has a long "BBQ" rack with a passenger handle bar to grab. What I did was to just sit a spare tire on top of the horizontal "bbq rack". This is not the correct place, I need to order one of the 4 different Lambretta tire holders that are available. I heard that putting the tire holder that goes on the front is a lot of work , that is what Eric from 2ndavenuescooters told me.

not really. i've got one myself. just lines up to the same holes that the fender attaches to the legshield.
