If you take a look at the Frame Numbers Part 2, and the Italian Frame Info sections of the British Lambretta Archive site:

You appear to have a LI 125 S2 frame from late 1961, but with a number that is 900+ higher than recognised by the BLA.
You appear to have an LI 150 S3 engine, probably from 1962.

Jake,

If you look at the first topic of the Anorak's Corner, you are not supposed to create new threads here.
Your 2 threads, frame and engine number should be in Series 1, 2 & 3.
You might want to ask Forum Admin to transfer these.
The slap on the fingers is more embarrassing than painful. :lol:

Ok, I'm hoping for some anorak help here, it's related to a post I created in the Series 1/2/3 section.

My questions are:

1) Should an Italian market 1960 li150 have a battery?

2) Has anyone seen this kind of brake light wiring?

Thanks,
Roger

I have a Series II frame which had an Italian dealer sticker on it and it has a battery tray.

Sadly the sticker could not be removed without destroying it....

Does anyone know the correct routing of the fuel pipe on a S2? Am I right in thinking it's a longer route than a S3?

So I kind of offered to restore a friend of a friends Lambretta li150 s2. It belongs to his dad who is 92, and he wants a full on resto right down to paint. He has told me it had green panels when he bought it brand new in 1960.
So looking for a pic of an original paint scooter please so I can show him and confirm with the painter what he wants.
Paint codes as well please although I’m sure the painter can get them as he does lots of Lambrettas...
