It’s been suggested that the price of classic Lambretta and Vespa scooters lately has spiralled out of reach of many.

At £2650 ono (eg it sounds like a deal can be struck!) it proves you don’t have to risk an unseen resto from abroad for twice the price to ride a tidy classic 60s scooter on the road these days.
So what has your local shop got to offer then?
