I am a bit confused with the pictures of the speedo. One is API in black colour (presumably Yenkay), and the other one has a white background colour. The Innocenti models initially had white background speedos. The black Yenkays came later. Last were silver-background Pricols.
Thanks and nice to know vnabhi.The oldest Li 150 Series 2 (in India since around 1958-59) were fitted with the white-dialled and Italian made speedos, with INNOCENTI written below the rectangular odo space. These continued till around late 1967.

Thereafter, for a few months till around mid-1968, the white speedos (made in India, Yenkay (?)) trying to duplicate the Italian ones, but with poor finish were fitted to the Lambrettas.

Next came the black dialled, Yenkay speedos in mid-1968, that continued till the Lamby was introduced in 1978.

Lambys came with the silver-dialled Pricol speedos till the company was shut down in the mid 1980's.
