I find that the front mudguard is not original (taken from a Lamby 150) Also the legshield looks like its been reshaped ("trimmed around the edges) to look like that of a lamby. Many people used to "update" their lambrettas to look like the newer lambys back then!
Btw, the front toolbox seems to be a popular fitting on lambrettas in TN- my 1960 s2 also had one when I bought it, Ive taken it off.

EDIT: I suggest this thread be merged into the lambretta scooters retoration thread.

Hey this is not in original shape - you are right the legshiled and the front mudguard are not Lambretta 1968.

If you need help send me a mail on vats.saurabh@gmail.com. I have the same 1968 machine which I have restored once but am in the process of re-doing it to concourse level restoration complete with origiinal paint codes from Italy and loads of imported parts.

I picked up a lambretta which needs restoration. Can someone guide me to a good mechanic to bring it back to original shape. Preferably in Bangalore.

I can suggest a couple of mechanics to you. Some photos of the scooter would be great...but post them in the Lambretta Restoration thread. Are you able to send PM to other members?
