All-new Lambretta LN scooter priced for UK

Lam1

Regular readers might remember that we featured the return of the Lambretta at the back end of last year. Well, the details of the Lambretta LN scooter launch are starting to take shape – with details of a new Lambretta LS scooter also emerging.

First up, the LN scooter, which has now landed at selected dealers ahead of the full launch. One of those is WK Bikes wkbikes.com, which will have the LN 125. There's an LN 150 to follow later in the year. Both are 'twist and go' automatic scooters, mixing that with old school looks reminiscent of the original using plastic and metal.

Not as cheap as you think though. Made in Taiwan and imported into the UK, the Lambretta LN 125 sells for around £3,300. Ouch. Look out for a twin-seated LS scooter too – that's pictured over the page and will come in 50cc and 125cc models. Likely to be cheaper, but we suspect not by a huge amount.

eBay watch: 1960s Lambretta Luna 50CL scooter

Luna

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.

Original 1960’s Scooter from nanadobbie

Show_image_in_imgtag.php

Small children whizzing across the pavement are a pretty ubiquitous sight just about anywhere in the UK these days, thanks to the current scooter revival.

This old-school original 1960's chrome scooter has oodles of charm compared to it's modern-day plastic counterparts. It's painted light brown with metallic detailing and even has a name – the "Radio Flyer". It's suitable for an older child or a teenager – sadly not a fully grown adult.

The scooter costs £65 from mid-century treasure trove nanadobbie – either from their London store or online here.
