Of the hundreds of Lambrettas we restored over the years at West Coast Lambretta Works, this one stands out as an all time favorite. 

The fact that it was a very early "frame breather" Series 1 Li125 from the late '50s was enough to get us excited to tackle the project - especially considering that it was brought to us nearly 100% complete, in boxes, with everything labeled - but the back story behind the scooter's history was the real treat.

And that story went something like this... (I'm going by memory here, so forgive me for any inaccuracies)

These shots are from the really early days of my Lambretta adventure at the family garage in Lakeside, probably around 1982 or so. Check out the stacks of N.O.S. Innocenti engine cases, headset bottoms, toolboxes, complete original gray cables with inline oilers, etc.!
