Trevor
Trevor is the man and the brains behind the whole operation. Trevor has been a scooterist right from his nappy days, starting out with an old converted caravan behind his house way back, friends and fellow scooterists used to pop round and Trevor would sort them out! Eventually Trevor worked out that he could just about manage to pay the bills with a shop proper, took the plunge and started Cambridge Lambretta Workshops. His knowledge is astounding regarding Lambretta, as hundreds of restorations prove! Oh and his personal scooters a restored GP200, Model D, Vega, and a rather nice Targa Twin
Peter
Peter's other talent when not surfing the Internet and answering your e-mails, is looking after all the parts and accessories. Peter the "parts specialist", cam often be heard mumbling "what the bloody hell does this fit" shows he is still being trained in this aspect of his work! Scooters include a Serveta Lince 200 and a Lambro Van
Paul
Paul is our Jack of all trades, Paul spends half the week in the workshops, the other half on mail order duties. Being a time served scooter rider, Paul has done most European Countries on his trusty steads. A Series one, and a Series two, both with PT tuned big motors.
Ian
Ian has a life times experience in the motor trade, we say a life time as he is getting on a bit, and Trevor employed him as part of the care in the community scheme (only joking). Ian as well as picking orders, answering the phone, and doing every thing else, is also a scooter owner and is quite capable of a good cup of tea as well. Ian version IIVX replaces Ian Mark IIV as the mail order specialist along side Peter. Ian's seems to change his scooters more then his socks, having owned 12 scooters in 11 years! Currently he rides a Golden Special, well he did this time last week!
Jorge
Jorge Yes his name really is George spelt with a J, following on from his brother and sisters name beginning with a J! Jorges passion is cars, lowered, slammed, tricked, and modified, Jorge can usually be found modifying his car. Dont worry, he also owns a Lambretta, and comes from a family of scooter riding members. Granddad owns a kitted Vespa, dad owns a Mugello clad SII, and Jorge loves small frames, and fast Lammies.
Sue
Sue presses buttons, signs cheques and generally keeps all the boys in order. Sue has owned numerous scooters throughout her scootering life/ and currently enjoys life in the fast lane on a Vega!


The shop's history

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
