All the Lambretta Models


Please note information contained on this page is intended as a guide only to help you identify any Lambretta. All facts and figures are based on Italian production and information unless other wise stated. A lot of the information is not only from our own knowledge, but we would also like to thank Tino Sacchi, Nigel Cox, and Vittorio Tessera, for their tireless devtion to sharing all things Lambretta


For series one, two and three lambrettas, Li, Special, TV, SX, GP models, you can identify them with the frame and engine number, located in the following places

which can be found by clicking here

Notes :-
The model A was the first Lambretta to leave the production line at the Innocenti factory, and featured a 3 speed foot gear change.
Three versions of the Model A were made.
First version models were made up to frame number 6900. The scooter was produced all in the same colour; Green, Red, Blue or Ivory. The seat was painted in matt black, and the wheel rims chromed. The front seat was square shaped, the tool box door had a key, the horn horn was mechnically foot operated.
The second version from frame number 6901 up to 11000 was available in Green, Red, Blue or Beige. The seat frames and wheel rims are now painted in a Fiat 690 colour code. The front seat was now triangular in shape, the tool box door was now a simple latch with no key. The horn changed to an electric unit. Around frame number 10000, the foot brake was moved to the opposite side of the gear lever.
The final third version was from frame number 11001 to the end; 14700. The available colours remained as the second series of Green, Red, Blue or Beige. Parts now painted in Fiat 690 were wheel rims, stand, wheel hubs, seat, and on the engine the carb, air filter and fan cowl were also Fiat 690. The electric horn was now polished instead of being painted.

The Model A is quite a rare beast these days, and they command high prices in Italy. Parts supply, restoration, and information stems mainly from two Italian specialists. Due to this
We say Leave this one to the experts / collectors

Notes :-
The model B gear change was now on the handle bars, a feature to stay with the rest of the Lambretta models ever made.
The paint schemes for all versions was every thing was painted the main body colour, except :- Seat frame and supports, wheel rims, hubs, centre stand, the interior side of the front suspension, engine case, carburettor body, bronze cast connecting to the luggauge box, and flywheel cowl which are all painted in Fiat 690.
First versions were up to frame number 20,000. Heel brake pedal, throttle control clutch internal to the engine casing. The light switch was on the headlamp, but for the last 2,000 models it was moved to the handle bars. Cylindrical rubbers between the fuel tank and luggauge box.
Second versions up to frame number 40,000. Brake pedal moved the the front on the legshields. Throttle control clutch was now external. Light switch on the handle bars, fuel tank to lugguage buffers no longer fitted.
Third versions have the internal lever of the rear suspension oversized and secured with a screw. Support buffers on the lugguage box are no longer used.

The Model B like the A is quite rare beast although a little easier to find then an A. Same as the A, parts supply could be a problem, the B model was basically an upgraded A, and again

We stock a very small selection of parts for the model C
which can be found by clicking here

Notes :-
Starting with the C, the basis of all Lambretta frames would be made of tube.
3 speed, hand gear change by teleflex cable.
Paint schemes were all the same colour, except the stand, wheel rims, and hubs were painted Fiat 690.
First versions had an almost wonky pear shaped telefex box on the engine, marked with teleflex. Handle levers were still as the B type, with 59*10mm holes.
Second version teleflex box changed to a shield type shape, with no writing. Handel bar levers changed to the hole size 44*10mm


Badge

The C Model starts to become a viable machine to own and use, although they are still very fragile due to the over complicated rear engine case / axle assembly. Parts supply is quite a but better then the earlier machines. 125cc engine doesnt perform that well, 40 to 45mph
We say Still a collectors machine really, many engine parts left over from the A/B models. Model D is a better option if you want to ride it!

Notes :-
The LC shard the model C tubular frame, but the LC became the first Lambretta to feature full sized legshields and side panels. On this and the LD, the L stood for Luxury due to the mentioned panel work.
3 speed, hand gear change by teleflex cable.
Paint schemes were all the same colour, except the stand, wheel rims, and hubs were painted Fiat 690.
On the LC variants, the fuel tank and rear mudguard were painted in a matt anti rust coating.
First versions had an almost wonky pear shaped telefex box on the engine, marked with teleflex. Handle levers were still as the B type, with 59*10mm holes.
Second verion teleflex box changed to a shield type shape, with no writing. Handle bar levers changed to the hole size 44*10mm

As with the Model C, the LC starts to become a viable machine to own and use. Parts supply is quite a but better then the earlier machines. 125cc engine doesnt perform that well especially with the heavier body work the LC wears.

We stock a big selection of parts for the model D
which can be found by clicking here

Notes :-
The D can be quite confusing to identify as three different versions were available, as well as many mid production changes within these 3. The Model D and LD were also amoung the first versions that were made outside Italy in any numbers, as Innocenti sold license for production around the world.
Mark One 125cc Models
First versions were produced from 1951 to 1952, and were only produced in 125cc, 3 speed, hand gear change by teleflex cable. Rear suspension was now by means of torsion bar, overcoming the over complicated earlier models swinging engine case.
Rear brake was still operated by rods, until mid 1952 when it changed to cable. Handle bars were chromed, with alloy end caps. Levers were also alloy.
Second version 125 models from 1953 changed to alloy handle bars, with plastic white levers. The tool tube under the seat, changed from the conical type to a cylindrical one. Brown seat covers,
Third version 125 models from 1954 to 1955 gained brake and clutch cable adjusters on the handlebars. The rear butty box how had a lock, and seat covers were now green.
Mark Two 150cc Models
First versions of the Mark 2 were 150cc, and were produced from 1954 to mid 1956. Handle bars were adjustable, exhaust changed style and gained a chrome coffee pot style silencer. 1954 to 1955 mdoels did not have a battery, but from August 1955 onwards they were then battery - this powered a parking light, stop light (if fitted) and horn.
Second versions ran from mid 1956 to the production end, and had chrome handle bars, the the exhaust dropped the chrome silencer.

Paint work for the Mark one was all the same body colour, exclusing the seat frame.
Mark 2 was all the same body colour, except the first 8000 in production had Fiat 690 painted number plate holders. All models had the under seat tool box, crankcase and air filter housing in Fiat 690.


Badge
Early model Ds were just as the C, still not an ideal every day machine. Many mid production changes were made, for example four kick start types, two crank types, plus many more, and by the time you get to the last Mark 3 D150 it was now a good solid useable machine. Engines can and ro reach 50,000 miles + before needing any thing major. In fact lack of use, missing parts and genral poor condition should be your only worry when looking to buy the later models.

which can be found by clicking here

Notes :-
The LD can be quite confusing to identify as three different versions were available, as well as many mid production changes within these 3. The LD Mark 2 and 3 could also be brought as the LDA, which was an electric start version.
Mark One 125cc Models
First versions were produced from 1951 to 1952, and were only produced in 125cc, 3 speed, hand gear change by teleflex cable. Rear suspension was now by means of torsion bar, overcoming the over complicated earlier models swinging engine case. Rear brake was still operated by rods, until mid 1952 when it changed to cable. Handle bars were chromed, with alloy end caps. Levers were also alloy. Side panels had two port holes with chrome trims. Paint work for the Mark one was all the same as the body colour, excluding the seat frame. Crankcase and air filter housing in Fiat 690.
Second version 125 models from 1953 changed to alloy handle bars, with plastic white levers. The tool tube under the seat, changed from the conical type to a cylindrical one. Brown seat covers. Paint was all the same body colour, except the first 8000 in production had Fiat 690 painted number plate holders. Crankcase and air filter housing in Fiat 690.
Third version 125 models from 1954 to 1955 gained brake and clutch cable adjusters on the handlebars. The rear butty box how had a lock, and seat covers were now green.
Mark Three 125cc models
First version upto mid 1957. Exhaust had a short tail pipe, and two inspection bungs. Seat covers had open front Green covers like the D versions.
Second versions from mid 1957 onwards, exhaust had a long tail pipe. Seat frame had conical springs, and black seat covers. The last versions had domed wheel nuts. Paint was all in Landa Grey
Mark Two 150cc Models
First versions of the Mark 2 were 150cc, and were produced from 1954 to mid 1956. Handle bars were adjustable, exhaust changed style and gained a chrome coffee pot style silencer. 1954 to 1955 mdoels did not have a battery, but from August 1955 onwards they were then battery - this powered a parking light, stop light (if fitted) and horn. Side panels had one oval hole with chrome grille. Rear shock was added, the top half painted the same colour as the body, the lower half nickel plated. Paint was all the same body colour, except the first 8000 in production had Fiat 690 painted number plate holders. Crankcase was only painted on the very first versions, and after that only the inlet mannifold, gear change cover, and air filter housing were painted in Fiat 690.
Second versions ran from mid 1956 to the production end, and had chrome handle bars, the the exhaust dropped the chrome silencer.
Mark 3 150cc models
First version upto mid 1957. Exhaust had a short tail pipe, and two inspection bungs. Seat covers had open front Green covers like the D versions. Paint work was all the same except the side panels, horn cover, and headlight cowl were painted either Light Blue, English Blue, Amaranto red or Emerald Green.
Second versions from mid 1957 onwards, exhaust had a long tail pipe. Seat frame had conical springs, and black seat covers. The last versions had domed wheel nuts.
The French LD can be distigished by the position of the fuel and choke levers. These exsit the frame near the feet instead of between the seats on the Italian made models. Also seat covers were rubber, and small changes to badges were made. The French made Ld was largely always based on the Mk2 version.


Badge
Early model LDs were just as the C/LC, still not an ideal every day machine. Many mid production changes were made, for example five kick start types, two crank types, plus many more, and by the time you get to the last Mark 3 57 LD150 it was now a good solid useable machine. Engines can and ro reach 50,000 miles + before needing any thing major. In fact lack of use, missing parts and genral poor condition should be your only worry when looking to buy the later models.

Notes :-
The E model featured a hand operated pull start, and three speed gearbox controlled by a teleflex cable. Not many exist now as the pull start was inherant with problems, most models were subsequently converted to kick start.
First version up to mid 1953, the bodywork was welded to the frame, the luggage box had no hooks, the ignition was manual with an advance / retard lever.
The second version was from mid 1953 onwards now had the body work bolted to the frame, the luggage box had securing hooks. On the vert last models produced, the front mudguard had additional fixing brackets, and exhaust had a short tail pipe on the left hand side.


Badge
Most E models were converted to F specification as the pull starts are so delicate, they broke easily, even when new. Parts supply is hard with most items needing to be sourced via Italy, although some parts are interchangeable with the Model D.

First versions from 1954 kept the same seat frame as the E, but changed to green covers.
Second versions had the seat frame from the model D, with two vertical springs.
Second Series models were made in 1955, the forks were chaged to the same as the Model D, the handlebars were curved upwards. and the coil and condensor were external.

Notes :-
The Series one was the first to feature a chain drive, and gained an extra gear taking it to a 4 speed. All subsequent Lambretta models adapted this principal. These models also began the feature of having the handle bar or headset cast in alloy instead of the earlier model motorcylce type bars.
Identify the 125 The 125 version had painted handle bar alloy housings, and alloy floor strips.
Identify the 150 The 150 version had polished alloy handle bar housings, alloy channels with rubber inserts on the top.

The first versions were made up to September 1958, the air intake was via the rear grille, through a hose, the through the frame, and finally through an air filter on the carb which had steel wool inside. The side panels were the same as the TV one, with an oval inlet hole on the front edge. Passenger grab rail was fixed to the reat seat. The chain guide was one piece and was not adjustable.
The second versions started from December 1958 gain an airfilter box, with a paper air filter, and a hose to the carb. Passenger grab rail was now fixed to the rear of the front seat. The chain guide came in two pieces and was now adjustable.
The last versions did away with the complicated frame breather set up, the airbox was moved to the space between the tool box and petrol tank. The brake pedal had a small splash guard, and the fuel cap had a small breather hole.


Badge
The series one Li, is the first of the Lambrettas that can be easily modified for both performance, style, accessories or what ever takes your fancy. Parts supply is excellent.
We Say The Li Series one has great classic looks, little larger and heavier then the later models, but easy to ride, and repair.

First version up to April 1958 had a fixed horn grill, and a ball bearing on the crankshaft flywheel side.
Second versions up to June 1958 had a seperate horn grill to the horncasting, secured by a single screw. The flyhweel side cranksaft bearing was now a roller bearing. Splash plated was fitted to the centre stand, and on the very last versions the front brake and clutch levers no longer had the adjusters inside the handle bar housings.


Badge
TV1 are amongst the most regarded Lambrettas you can get, but can be more difficult and expensive for parts.
We Say TV1 for collectors only due to the complexity of the engine.

Notes :-
The Series two was pretty much identical to the Series ones except the head lamp was now in a larger head set housing. This turned as you turned the steering, unlike the S1 which faced forwards which ever way the handle bars were.
Identify the 125 The 125 version had painted handle bar alloy housings, and alloy floor strips.
Identify the 150 The 150 version had polished alloy handle bar housings, alloy channels with rubber inserts on the top.
TV S2
All forks, hubs, dampers, etc were also painted in the same colour as the body.
Identify the TV Front dampers, 70mph speedo, different front hub back plate featuring a peg instead of a slot for location, dual seat fitted as standard. Two ranges of frame numbers were produced for the TV2. The first batch, Innocenti found a weakness in the main frame, they recalled all models and adapted machines on the production line. They did this by cutting the frame directly in half along three quarters of its lenght, and welded in a strenghening plate.


Badge
Both the Li and TV share the same mechanical layout and interchangeability of all future models, so are easily repaired, updated and modified. Parts supply is excellent
We Say Easy to own, ride, update and plenty of accessories available.

Notes :-
The Series three and all subsequent models were nick named the slim style. This is because compared to the S1, & 2, the Lambretta became slimmer and sleaker. The slim stlye covers all models, Li, TV, SX and GP.
First versions in 1962 had the same bridge piece as the S1/2 at 120mm wide.
Second versions begun at the end of 1962 and ran until mid 1965 now had a wider bridge piece at 132mm wide. From mid 1964 the side panel buffers were secured by a metal spring.
Third versions from mid 1965 onwards deleted the chrome ring between the legshields and handle bars, the gap was taken up by a deeperheadset base.
The last versions we stamped Li4 on the frame, and have cominly become know as the Series 3. These had rectangulat horncast badges, clip on side panel handles, plastic tool boxes, and a Lambretta Innocenti rear frame badge, as per the SX models.
Identify the 125 The 125 version had painted handle bar alloy housings.
Identify the 150 The 150 version had polished alloy handle bar housings. Side panels and horncast were painted in a second colour to the main body. The choice of these were New Light Blue, Nile Green and Coral Red.


Badge
Easily the most readily available model to buy, and thus the cheapest of the main stream models. Parts supply is excellent
We Say You cant go wrong with an Li series 3.

To view the parts we stock for the Li Special click here

Notes :-
The Li special gained the looks from the TV family of models, but retained the 125 and 150 engine size options from the Li, but with more power
Identify the 125 The 125 version had a Special badge on the legshields, a larger style Lambretta badge, and a big 125 badge. Originally the 125 was not imported into the UK, buyt many private imports can now be found.
First versions ran from the begining up to begin 1968 and had a shield type horncast badge, and painted metal tool box.
Second versions ran from the begining of 1968 to the end of production and changed to a square type metal horncast badge, plastic grey tool box. The last versoins did not have any side panel handles, they used a clip on type.
Paint scheme for the 125cc was all metallic blue (8061), except the follwing parts :- Rear mudguard, petrol tank, air box and elbow, tool box, flywheel and cylinder covers which were all painted hawthorn wite (8082).
Identify the 150 The 150 was available in a few different editions. The special was called the Pacemaker in the UK, whilst you could also buy Silver or Golden specials.
First versions up to mid 1964 had all rubber side panel buffers.
Second versions from mid 1964 to mid 1965 had side panel buffers secure with metal spring clips. From April 1965 the rear frame badge was either Silver or Golden dependant on the model.
Third versions from mid 1965 onwards, the chrome ring between the legshields and horncast was no longer used, the headset base was slightly deeper to take up the gap. The legshields changed shape slightly at the top to match the headset.


Badge
The specials have the looks of the more expensive TV, and later SX models, were available in 125 and 150 and had a good long production run meaning you can still find them. Parts supply is excellent.
We Say Has that Sixties style, and looks of the more desirable models, but with prices that are more realistic.

Notes :-
The TV series three came equiped with the worlds front production line motorcycle disc brake for both the 175cc and 200cc versions. Front dampers painted in Fiat 690 were fitted as standard.
Identify the TV 175 First versions made until the end of 1963 came with the same style of side panels as found on the Li S3, and all rubber side panel buffers. Colours; all the same New White, with a second colour on the horncast, front mudguard and side panels of either Coral Red, Light Yellow or Dark Grey. All internals were painted in New white, except real early models which had the rear mudguard painted in a Black anti noise textured paint.
Second version from the end of 1963 until mid 1965 changed the side panels to that with a different shape, and additional panel flash trims (as per the photo). The side panel buffers changed to a D shape and were held to the frame leg by a spring clip. Colours for the second and thrid versions of TV175 were now all metallic blue, except the under panel internals which were new white.
Third versions from mid 1965 onwards, did not have a chrome ring trim under the headset.
Identify the TV 200 Lambretta concessionaires convinced Lambretta Innocenti to produce a 200cc model due to customer demand for more power and speed. Later versions were available on home (Italian) and other markets. TV200 models were all white, with Lambretta UK adding a second colour to the horncast and side panels.


Badge
TV200 models are one of the most desirable to own, The 175 in standard engine guise was possible the smoothest Innocenti ever made. Parts supply is excellent
We Say TV200 prices are astronomical, better to buy a different model and spend the vast difference on making the scooter fast and reliable. TV175 models are well worth a look if you want standard engine performance and the looks.

The Special X project was started by Innocenti to design a model with a look of more quality and attention to detail.
Identify the 150 The 150 retained the looks from the previous Special model, but gained an X150 badge. Paint schemes for the 150 from the factory were all one colour, those being Primavera grey (8070) or Apple Green (8039). Some Orange models are also know to have been made. For the grey models, all internals under the panels were painted new white. The seat frame and catch were painted gloss black. For the apple green models the wheel rims and hubs were painted grey metallic (8081). The last production SX150s were painted Hawthorn Grey, (8082) the wheels and hubs were painted grey metallic (8081)
Identify the 200 The 200 version had a different shaped side panel, with a more pointed flash with 200 built into them, and an X200 badge. From the factory all SX200 models left in New White (8059), every where except the front dampers. Lambretta UK added a second colour to the side panels for UK sold models.
First versions up to early 1968 had a crest type horncast badge, metal tool box.
Second versions changed to a retangular horncast badge, and grey plastic tool box.
Third versions had a polished horn grill, the SX200 gained the same chrome front muguard flash as the SX150 had always had. The very last models featured clip on side panels.


Badge
SX models were the last of the Sixties styled machines with the chrome and polished trims / badges as standard, plus benefited from all the updates Innocenti made over the years. Parts supply is excellent.
We Say SX200 prices are high, SX150 dont seem to come up for sale that often!

Paint schemes were all body colours, internals new white, forks, wheels and hubs silver Fiat 690

First versions up to mid 1970, had the horn grille and rear frame grille made in alloy, and a metal fuel flap.
Second versions from mid 1970 onwards changed the horn grille, rear frame grille and petrol flap to black plastic.
The last versions of the GP200 had electronic ignitions, and the rear lights fitted by large captive nuts with rubber grommets.


Badge
Futuristic styling, still copied today, and doesnt look out of place. The most modified Lambretta in terms of performance and customisation you cab get. Parts supply is excellent,
We Say Check GP200 machines are real, the difference in frame identities is one number, but the value is massive. Buy a 125 (or 150) model, and spend the massive saving on performance that will run rings around a standard 200 any way! The same can be said for Italian / Indian, Italian machines command a high premium compared to Indian. Forget stories of poor Indian quality, as most Italian machines will have Indian parts fitted some where now! Take each machine on its individual basis, as well looked after Indian machines could be a better value buy then a bodged Italian machine.

To view the parts we stock for the J range click here

The J range was the baby of the Lambretta models, and was primarily designed for ladies, being lightweight and using smaller stretch levers. One piece monocoque frame work went away from the more traditional tubular frame
The J range did not sell as well as hoped. Today more and more parts are available for the J Range making them easier to keep.
The junior had 9" wheels, First versions ran up to 1966. These featured wider leg shields, a bolt on support for the seat, bolt in fork buffers for early versions, later switching to push in. The rear frame had a casting with ribs on it
Second version J50 Junior had narrower legshields, no bolt on seat support as it switched to a one piece frame. The later models no longer had side panel handles.
The J50 Special and Deluxe had 10" wheels, and no mid production changes. Clip on side panels, their own badging
J100, J125 3 speed, and J125 four speed (starstream). did not have any mid production changes.


Badge
Always have the stigma of being the baby models of the range, and not so desirable. Parts supply is getting better, but not as good as the larger framed models
We Say bit of an odd ball model, prices will always remain lower then other models / be careful when restoring these models due to the values.

As the race to be the first person on the moon gathered pace, the new model was launched, the Luna range (Luna meaning silver moon). The machines looked very advanced for their day, reverting back to the open frame style of the much admired A/B/C/D types There was also a model called Cometa which featured oil injection instead of needing to pre mix fuel and 2 stroke oil. All models were 3 speed.
The Luna range was made up of the Lui 50cc, Vega and Cometa were both 75cc
Production changes 50cc :- Early 1968 to beginning of 1969- Lambretta badges on left hand side
Late Beginning of 1969 - Lui and Lambretta badges in the centre, ball end levers used.
75cc Production changes :- Beginning of 1969 - ball end levers used.


Badge
Small lightweight and futuristic models, aimed at the commuter market, but never really took off. Parts supply is getting better, but not as good as the larger framed models
We Say bit of an odd ball / collectors model, great fun but not easily customisable, tuneable, or other.

We do not stock any parts for the Moped range, but they can be specially ordered.

Lambretta also made quite a range of 38 and 50cc step through models.
These were the smallest engine Lambretta produced, and in a strong wind it would need pedal power to keep it moving! Many plastic parts were used on later models, including engine covers, headlight, and petrol tank Two speed, fully automatic, this model even featured a lever which reduced exhuast compression by moving the exhaust valve, for ease of starting. Chain driven, but not enclosed as per usual, encased by a chain guard, spoked wheels with trailing links were other features of the Lambrettiono as the model was known.


Badge
Only a handful of these models probably exist in the UK, brought in by private collectors
We Say Collectors only, you can run faster then these mopeds.

Innocenti always produced a three wheeled commercial vehicle along side their two wheeled scooters. The amount of models and options was vast.
There were so many Lambro models made, they would need their own pages to cover them all. Parts supply has over the last very few years become OK via specialist suppliers.

The work horse of Italy used to be a pretty rare sight here in the UK, but more and more have been imported over the years.
We Say The most fun you can have on three wheels, the only down side is lack of top speed and getting stuck in traffic!
