Lambretta, Lambretta, Lambretta…
This is the 4th and last part of our Italy series:
1. Rimini Lambretta Centre 20th Anniversary Open Day / Rimini
2. Teste Cromate Scooter Club Ride Out / Rimini
3. Polini plant tour / Bergamo
4. Visit of the Casa Lambretta and Lambretta Museum / Milan
After spending the morning at Polini, we spent the afternoon at Casa Lambretta.
Spare parts, accessories and tuning parts for all Lambretta Scooters
In cooperation with Casa Lambretta we supply all Lambretta restoration parts. The Casa Lambretta range includes, amongst others, parts for the very old shaft driven Lambretta models m (A) to F, Lambretta Smallframe parts for Junior and Lui and spare parts for the Li family. Vittorio Tessera offers spare parts “made in Italy” but also accessories and tuning parts for all Lambretta scooters.
The entire Casa business is focused on Vittorio. He is the key player for all reproducing parts. Dean Orton and the Rimini Lambretta Centre recently offered to conduct external quality checks for Casa. This is how Casa products are being constantly improved. The toolbox lock for series 3 is a recent example. It was equipped with a new locking cylinder and finally no longer gets anybody’s attention due to unpleasant rattle.
Vittorio Tessera does not only do restoration works. He has also published many books on Lambretta and scooters in general. Vittorio’s book Innocenti The Definitive History is the core literature on Lambretta. Later the Restoration Guide was added, which explains all details concerning restoration of various Lambretta models:
- gloss paints,
- galvanic processes
- and anything else you should know.
And this is not the end. There also is the museum, which exhibits milestones in the development in the history of scooters. These have been collected from all over the world and have been restored, if necessary. Lambretta is in the focus of the museum and you can admire models from the oldest Lambretta to the prototypes, which are also treated in Innocenti The Definitive History.

- all parts for the gearbox,
- all springs for lamps,
- brass throttle roller and gas roller,
- Series 2 gear change twist grip
… These are only some of the new Casa Lambretta parts that we will receive from Vittorio.
