Hi all,

I am thinking of buying a lambretta ld from 1957. It looks in reasonable condition but I was wondering how easy it is to get parts for these old models and how hard it would be to restore.

The bike is in good condition for it's age.

Hi Henro, I'm a vespa man myself lol. I think the parts are out there but wouldn't come cheap. My best advice would be to go to the website, the online version of the magazine. There is a forum on there and I'm sure if you posted on there someone would help you out.

Keep the faith!
Can't help you, Henro but I envy you and wish you every success; I'm sure you will enjoy every minute of the restoration.

In 1962 I bought a secondhand Lambretta TV 175cc Mk 1 (1958 model) for �60 and rode it across France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco for 4 months without any serious problems apart from punctures. It went like a train ! I loved that machine and bitterly regret dumping it shortly after getting home and returning to driving a car.

I would dearly love to find one again, restore it and ride off to warm climes and re-live those days of my youth again. Sigh.
ditto the TV175, wonderful machine.
