Wow, this was the bike I honed my skills fo Driving and Repairing . As was the norm the lights both front and rear are not original and so is the Fuel filler cap. The side panels over the engine also have been chopped off at the rear dampers.

Try to buy as cheap as possible, 3-5K should be good price.

Is the owner asking 12.5K ? Saw one advertisement few days ago, think in ebay

All the best

It was made around the 50s. It was later made indigenously as the Laxmi 48cc. Here is another example in Madras:

@ vipinmohan,
Laxmi Moped was not produced by API, it was produced by KGP Motors i.e. Kirloskar-Ghatge Patil Motors, Kolhapur (Maharashtra) from the license by Innocenti, Italy.
They still have a production plant @ Kolhapur which now produces pistons & piston rings.
Here are the pics of KGP Laxmi 48 Moped:

The goodbye moped before KGP exited the scene was the Pizzaz with a kick start and smaller dia wheels.It could carry two people. the engine and gearbox were the same as the old Lambretta 48.
