Well I generally aquire most manuals and research material before the start of my restoration, I never start restoration unless I have the original owners manual.

So i have the following

1956 Owners Manual for Mercedes Benz 180D
1956 Parts Manual for Mercedes Benz 180D
1956 Workshop Manual for 1956 Mercedes Benz 180D

1960 Owners Manual for my Rover P5
1960 Workshop Manual for Rover P5
1960 Product Catalog for Rover P5

1956 Owners Manual for my 1956 Fiat 1100 (in English)
1956 Karosserie catlog for my Fiat 1100
1956 Supplement to owners manual for Fiat 1100 (for american models)

1961 Owners Manual for Lambretta Li 150 Series 2

besides the above I have most books that were written on the above cars/scooters by various authors.

Does anyone have the manual for the Lambretta LI 150 S2 scooters that were built by API (any manual from 1968-1972). I will be grateful if someone can help.

@Sidman:

Are you searching for the manual that the_mole has? Please see the above image posted by him.

There are manuals available for S1 & S3 here --> Scooter Help

You can also join this forum exclusively for Lamby owners and post a request there. You might get a positive response.

No dude if I understand correctly he is looking for a needle in a haystack, its easier to find a Italian Li150 manual but nearly impossible to find the Indian version which came with the later scooters that were manufactured completely by API. However if I am lucky I may have that in my library as well soon I have a source who may pass these on to me with other very rare scooter manuals.

Sid I have the manual from my grandmothers scooter (KL regd, I dont recall the year but it is an API manual). It is safely tucked away somewhere - like most of my stuff these days I have no idea where, I just know it is safe, sandwiched between 6 years of auto related newspaper articles I would cut out!

As soon as I find it I promise you a hi-res scan which you can then print to scale. Iron it and put it under the mattress for a few days to age it for that authentic look
