My Li 150 Special was first registered here in the UK on 8 April 1968, and was neither silver nor gold but originally painted white with all-red sidepanels and horncasting. It has an octagonal headlamp rim, but no chrome ring below that. The sidepanels are the TV3/GT200 style.

The scooter was a horrible shade of green when I bought it in 1993 (and had a fibreglass GP front mudguard), but I managed to contact an early owner, and he confirmed that it was white and red when he had it.

A photo of the restored scooter appeared in "Scootering" magazine in December 1997 (Issue No 144), and on the back cover of JetSet No 92 March-April 1998 (for those who still have copies!!)

Further to a thread about petcocks for early 150 specials I have added an image of the petcock that came with my 64 Special 150 .
It would be interesting to see what other early special owners have fitted to theirs as I am not sure if mine is original equipment or not.

My '65 Special has the same tap and looks to be factory fitted.

So my recently imported 1964 LiS 150.
Chrome ring, roller panel clips, was originally silver but no Silver front panel badge, special rear badge behind seat and fiberglass front mudguard. All looks totally original.
Question.... Will the SX style chrome mudguard trim fit over the raised piece of the front mudguard. Can't remember how it was on my old Sx150.
