German Lambretta

LamGer1.jpg

This is a rare brochure for a Lambretta in Germany.  The Lambrettas were not particularly popular in Germany.  There was fierce competition in the scooter market there from the many German-made scooters, including Vespas made under license in Germany.  In order to help them compete, the German importer tried to go up-market, and added many accessories to their scooters.  This photos is a good example.  Note all the chrome do-dads, and the very cool seat.  Also note the large rear license plate holder, which I believe was unique to the German market.  I bet that the accessories pictured on this scooter are now worth more than the scooter is!
