The 1950's was when we started to see much more attention to the overall design of scooters, as manufatures realised that the look was just as important as the engineering. Side panels and bigger legshields were added and we moved into the era of enclosed scooters with more bodywork. This was a new kind of affordable cool and along with these new scooters a whole new world of advertising was born. This was no longer just an economical form of transport for the working classes, the scooter was becoming a fashion statement.


The Lambretta 125LC was manafactured in Italy between April 1950 and November 1951. A total of 42,500 were produced.
