forgot to add....................FREE TAX! this is old enough to qualify for a free tax disc and has one but has expired so is sorn at the moment!
You are bidding (if you choose to) on a Lambretta Cento 1965.
The problem I have is I am a vespa man. So Lambrettas are a bit of a mystery to me. So my advice to you if you do not know about Lambrettas is......do not bid on a Lambretta as they are like a woman. TROUBLE!!!!!!!!!!!
My problems started with the gears getting harder and harder to get into. It was suggested to me that i needed to alter the gear cable....but as i said as a vespa man and not a lambretta man it was all to much for me.
So I sent it to my mates scooter shop.He isnt a Lambwetta man either so he stored it for me in his shop for over a year...more likely 2 years! Unfortunately his next door neighbour had a huge fire. This burnt the whole place down apart from the garage my 2 scooters were in! how lucky am I? so now its for sale :( this makes me sad but considering I am a vespa man this should come as no surprise to those that really really really understand Lambrettas!
right then now we are past the story lets get down to facts.
This is a really old scooter that was only built between 1964 and 1965. there were only about 17600ish of these made for the whole world. it is the only monocoque frame that lambretta built.
It has a cracked speedo but dont threat as i have another 1 that is in spot on condition!
Compression is tip top but am not getting a spark. it doesnt have the steering lock but these are buyable off ebay.
Other than a few small bits of rust that is all i can say.
If you bid and win then you buy. not come round and try and haggle as me swearing at you is embarrassing to me and the dustbin lids.
Until money has cleared 100% the scooter is going nowhere.
If you are a Prince with 2 million dollars than tbh old chap....do one :D
I am being as honest as i can be.
would rather you came to see it before bidding but understand that some cant.
ps this is a cash on collection auction unless you are sending a courier then i will accept paypal! i expect £100 paypal within 24 hours of end of auction no matter how its being collected!
this is a non refundable deposit!
This will only be sold within the uk.
<edited to add> this will be sold for what it goes for. it will not be pulled early due to a decent offer etc etc.
it will only be listed once so if it doesnt sell ive been offered just below the start price and will accept that offer from the person that offered it.
that is all. happy bidding all :D
