Reasonably priced classics? 

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

However while some on eBay are asking fortunes (which we doubt they’re receiving) and nameless businesses located half a world away are all to keen to take your money, we reckon a look locally could net you what you want.

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?
