Cambridge Lambretta started life way back in 1989 working from a converted caravan! Basically to serve the local Lambretta Club in Cambridge, members would pop along to get their scooter fixed or restored. Really done as a hobby, local riders used the facilities and Trevor's expertise, to not only get their scooters repaired, restored and generally look after, it was also a meeting place as well.
Then in late 1994, Trevor took the decision to move to more suitable premises, and thus started Cambridge Lambretta Workshops as a full time operation in early 1995 as a full time shop. Cambridge Lambretta quickly established itself as a well known restorer, supplying quality parts, service, scooters, and all things Lambretta. At first it was Chris and Trevor at the helm, but after a couple of years Chris left the workshops to pursue another career. 1998 and the business was picking up more and more two part time workers were enlisted, Jason and Peter.
2001 came along and for years the promise of we will move to bigger premises really had to take place, any body who visited the old premises could see that it was not soon enough. Luckily enough a larger building in the same yard came up and so I jumped at the chance to take the building over. Handy really as we did not have to change all that paperwork and advertising, same address, same phone number, just five times the size, perfect.
The new building was basically an old shell of a building, no electric's, no water, no nothing. Over a period of four months the shop gradually took shape, we now had a dedicated and separate show room, parts department and workshop, to cater for all your needs.
Staff wise, Cambridge Lambretta began to grow from day one, many local customers and City of Cambridge Lambretta CLub members were often found helping out in exchange for work on their own scooters. This continued for a couple of years, but after Chris left it was plain Trevor could not run the business on his own with two part time workers. In May 2001 and Trevor finally hooked Peter to work full time, Peter came from the Motor trade having worked for some large specialist car dealerships including Volvo and Porsche, operating in multi million pound parts departments. Peter quickly grew the parts sales side of things, concentrating on quality and price, something we have become well known for today.
Early 2002 and as the business was as busy as ever, Jason became full time after a number of years being part time
Then in 2015 we moved again, this time away from what was the Cambridge Lambretta home for over 20 years. Trevor had been looking to purchase a building for a long time, and finally although a few miles down the road, the perfect one was found and quickly purchased
Four months after purchase, all the work was done on the building, and we moved into our current location in December
in 2016 Paul joins us to be split between the parts department and the workshop
