I wonder if I should consider repainting the horncast of my '60 s2 in white...hmm....!
I think painting the horncast in the body panel colour was an option, in the early models If I am not mistaken. Here is another period photo of a Series 2 in New York city with my favorite colour combo. Its horncast is white too. I am going to paint my scooter in this colour combo, I have a hat like that too from my NY days to go with it

The upper part of the headset is also white, I can't make out clearly if this is the same case with the pics posted by Stanher. As for me, I love the appearance of a Lambretta that has its side panels, headset upper, and horncast in the same colour. But to each his own!

This one is for Stanher for obvious reasons, it has two of his passions in the same shot. But the intresting question is the number plate. Did Lambretta have a recommended postion for the front registration plate? I like the one in this shot though. I hate putting it on the front leg guard.

1. An original but ruined Lambretta Flag Logo,
A real pity, but you can still get these.
2. An API logo,
Doesn't belong on your scoot.
3. Original Lambretta Jack,
Nice! Try getting the original-type tool bag.
4. My dad's Classic looking helmet i wish to paint
Old style! Getting the inner lining changed too, I hope?

And how about the temporary Lambretta LI 125 stickering for the legshield?

Actually I doubt that is a Standard in the back, looks more like an Austin.

Im all for the numberplate posted above, though here is also another option.

Yes, I too think as much.

Yes, the upper part of it's headset is also white, very much in keeping with the early s2. Hence I've got that of my scoot painted so as well.

Yes, I too guessed its a 50s Austin Cambridge and not a Standard! Thanks anyways amol.
As for the mounting position of the plate on the mudguard, this style is common on scooters here in Hyd. But I'd prefer it being painted on the legshield, as was more common with the rest of India, and thus more period. Or on the centre of the mudguard, as done in Bombay/Delhi(?)
I might go for that, if I plan to fit another badge etc. on the RH side of the legshield.
Besides, you'd have to drill holes in the mudguard, which would especially ruin it if it had a crest like thing down the middle.

The 2nd option posted by Karl would be ok, although doesnt look too good when seen from the front IMHO.

Default Lambretta's Pictures dating early 80's

I guess this pictures should be in the early 80's.
In this pictures all can spot my scooter with almost the original look with the side body monograms too.
Now we have a spare wheel instead of that basket in the front.
The seats too have been redone losing it original look.

Your comments and sugguestions

Hi Sujith, yes those are the correct badges for series 3, the series 2 badges were the ones with the Lambretta script and the design.
find attached pics of the two. First for a Series 2, second for series 3

I'm looking for the following accessories for my Lambretta:
Rear carrier / rack
Front mudguard bumper
Legshield bag

Does anyone know if any of these are available locally?
Here are examples of the accessories I'm looking for:

Default Another one in Mumbai

I was walking around the CP tank area in Mumbai (one cant drive there, its so congested) when something yellow just zoomed past me, I knew it was Series 2. But did'nt quite expect this. While heading back to Charni Road to get into my car. I saw the same thing parked on the road.

I was quite pleased to see that the original Innocenti Logo was there (alebit faded) and so were the original panel badges in Aluminum.
From the horn grill it appears to be a later Innocenti. The mudguard also appears to have been changed. Notice it says lambretta 150 on the Front leg guard and not Lambretta and Li 150.

Anyways Quite a beauty to behold. Cant wait to start on my restoration.

I can try and let you have the legshield bag off another S2 I have for parts, and you could use that as a template for a new one?

Else will take that to a shop here itself that I may find making these and have a new one made.

Nicely done up scoot! But yes, horn grille not original (should have smaller round grille). Mudguard is from a Lamby 150. (you found original ones for your s2 yet btw?)

But surprising that it still has the legshield badge and horncast badge intact!

I think the legshied badge is also not original. The font looks different, maybe this is an API lambretta. It also does not say "Li 150" just 150.

Sidman send me a mudguard for my scooter. Looks like the original. Maybe Sidman can elaborate more.
