The owner of this Italian beauty did not buy the scooter with his wallet, but with his heart. He also had no plans to invest time in it, but to immediately award Quiryn restorations in the Westereen. If you first look at the condition in which it was purchased, you will probably be overcome by a feeling of despondency. You wonder whether the buyer has been sufficiently critical with the purchase and this wreck.

Quiryn is well known in the classic world due to his years of experience and expertise. With the right knowledge, he knows how to successfully complete his projects accurately and professionally. Quiryn already had technical knowledge because he also privately owns a 1954 Lambretta scooter of the type LD 150.
Duration of the restoration: 6 weeks
Truly unbelievable, a project that had to be completely overhauled, new sheet metal parts, wiring, brakes, every screw had to be new. The wishes of the customer were decisive. Of course, the preparation took longer, because all parts had to come from Italy. And nothing was spared in that either. All parts came from a well-known Italian Lambretta specialist.
Quiryn: “It was quite a task for me to return the scooter to the owner. The restoration gave me a great feeling. Just looking at the Lambretta – shining again – was satisfying. This project was a challenge. Every detail was important, but the look and design will now show off in the new owner's office.”
Restoration is beautiful, but beautiful restoration is difficult. The pictures prove it. This artist is a gifted person, with the urge to express a second life of the Innocenti Lambretta in order to succeed with the highest degree of perfection.
