Colours as supplied by Innocenti for the 1960 Rome Olympics.


Innocenti supplied 80 Lambretta Series 2 LI150's for the 1960 Olympic games held in Rome and there are now only 3 left in existence - one of which you see before you (this being number 26). We acquired the scooter from a chap in the middle of the Tuscan mountains and then stripped it down 101% to clean it up for a complete 'conserved restoration'. All the bodywork parts were cleaned and polished up and only a few parts were blown over (using cellulose paint in the correct colour) - and only where there was no longer any paint. As there is NO way this scooter could be restored in the 'normal' sense, we just replaced all the perished rubber parts and trims, and rebuilt the scooter as Innocenti did and that meant 'blackened' washers all round, zinc fasterners and grease nipples fitted to the control cables. The engine (obviously original to this scooter) was totally overhauled with all new internals fitted throughout. What we have here is without doubt one of the rarest Lambrettas in the world without question. You can have a nice TV200 or even an open frame racer but there'll always be others just the same. Top American collector Robbie Morelli bought this near - unique piece of Lambretta history from us, and it now resides in his personal collection Stateside. A top scooter for one of the World's top collectors.
