Proprietario: Nicola (Perugia)
Nicola has a cool family connection with Lambretta scooters as Father was the founder of the Lambretta Club Umbia (a region in central Italy). Nicola has several scooters and this Lambretta TV175 Series 2 is part of his personal collection.
Initially he’d toyed with the possibility of whether it was possible to do a conserved resto’ but after a quick scan of the scooter, it was obvious that this simply wasn’t going to happen. The scooter had been repainted in a previous life and quite badly at that. There was a lot of damage to several bodywork parts and mechanically speaking, the scooter showed some signs of serious abuse. Decision taken, a full resto I son th cards so it’s time for a full strip down. This one will be 101% ‘factory’ as they say.
UPDATE No.1: Nicola’s scooter has just come back from the painters so it’s now time to start the build. The engine is also under the spanners and everything must be factory, blackened burnished parts and all.
