1960 Lambretta LI 150 Series II - CHARTERHOUSE

Exmoor Hall, Royal Bath and West Showground, BA4 6QN


1960 Lambretta LI 150 Series II

A 1960 Lambretta LI 150 Series II combination, registration number 788 AFJ, frame number 150LI 853422, engine number 150LI 853492, green. This rare combination was originally supplied by Emerys of Exeter and was owned by the same family until 2010 when the vendor purchased it as a restoration project. It is believed the combination was last on the road in the 1970s. The vendor embarked on a full nut and bolt restoration, with the engine being rebuilt with a new crank shaft, main bearings, little ends and piston and rings. The body work has been restored and resprayed in light green, the original seats were retrimmed in green vinyl and the original sidecar frame was restored with a replacement chair. Since completion the Lambretta has been used sparingly and has been in storage for the majority of the time. The combination is offered for auction with original handbook, a Watsonian sidecar brochure and receipts. RF60, V5C, no MOT, tax exempt See illustration
