eBay watch: 1960s Lambretta Luna 50CL scooter


I was browsing through the French Scootitude magazine the other day and noticed a feature on a rather weird, late '60s Lambretta. Today, I've just noticed one on eBay – the Lambretta Luna 50CL scooter.

It's a Lambretta, but perhaps not as you might expect. This particular small frame / small engined model was introduced in 1968, designed to sit alongside, rather than replace the more traditional scoots. The CL model was the slightly more luxurious model, with a built-in light, rubber mats and those distinctive handlebars.

This one is described as 'totally original', with 'very good' bodywork and seat, but could do with new cables and tyres. It does run well enough though. There's a dating letter from the DVLA showing its originality and can be delivered at cost. Price right now is £700 – loads more images on the listing page.
