The Book of the Lambretta Motor-Scooter - R. H. Warring

Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, 1965, Hardback.
Condition: Good+. Boards a little rubbed, slightly soiled. Top edges of text block dusty. Foredges a little spotted. Internally bright and clean.

From the introduction: “Reprint [1957]. Covers all models up to the LDB. The Motor-Scooter represents a major revolution in the field of personal transport and is now to be seen on the roads of Britain in its tens of thousands. Socially it is a cut above the motor-cycle proper. Probably, too, for that reason it appeals to a different type of owner. About eighty per cent of motor cycle owners are mechanically-minded, love to tinker with their machines and do most of their own overhauls and general maintenance work. Motor-scooter owners, as a class, are oppositely inclined. At least 80 per cent of them are completely non-mechanical in outlook or ability, and nearly a quarter are women.”

Size: 6¾" x 4¾". Cream boards. In the Motor-Cyclists' Library series. 112 pages.
