Re: lambretta

yep...go check the photo gallery...they made quite a bit

Re: lambretta

Lambretta also re-badged those Taiwanese "sprinter"(similar to an angel) mopeds around the same time. They apparently did the same with Murrays, as this isn't the first one that I've seen. I guess they were trying to get in on the moped action the cheap way.

Re: lambretta

sorry for picture quality, its dark now. it also says manufactured in murray ohio on the badge but its too dark to see

Re: lambretta

no groms no blasters /

whoa italian company rebadging an american company's moped that used an austrian motor and french wheels. cool.

Re: lambretta

Re: lambretta

I guess its a mutt then! can wait to get going

Re: lambretta

the horn doesn't work...i think i'm most upset about that

Re: lambretta

A Lambretta Scooter Aficionado tells me...

A West Coast company got hold of the Lambretta license several years ago and rebadged several different two wheelers and a bunch of clothing. This is the first I've seen of a moped like this.

If that's a Lambretta, Magnums were made by Cadillac.

never saw a murray without the long seat, appears the rear of the frame is slightly different and imo looks much better.

Re: lambretta

U what a headache!

Re: lambretta

Lambretta did make a moped http://motorbike-search-engine.co.uk/classic_bikes/Lambretta-Ribot.jpg

i only have seen one ever and it was on the other side of the world.

back on topic you have a puch murray at some point stickers got swapped maybe by lambretta themselves but for all practical purposes its a murray.

Re: lambretta

Well is it a good Murray? I'm not familiar with the, but I found out thAt sears still carries some parts for them.

Re: lambretta

They are a typical low cost moped frame, with a reliable puch motor.

Re: lambretta

wait what? sears still carries parts?

that would be strange since they werent sold through sears...although i guess they are really similar to the freespirit.

Re: lambretta

As a joke this year for the lambretta jamboree that came in town all of us put Lambretta mopeds stickers on all of our bikes including a Honda CX500. So I guess we all got em now.

Re: lambretta

yea i typed in the vin number in google and it brought me to a sears website! igot it running for a bit today with the help of a friend, still some trouble he said it had to do with the choke...
