Lambretta Model Lambro

Lambretta Lambro three wheeled vehicles.
Innocenti had always created three-wheelers with its engine scooters, from the first times when they began with the 125M line (later to become 'A'). Although there is images in the first A style flyer, it is believed that none were ever created. The FB is the first known three wheeled Lambretta to be created in Feb of 1949. They were known in Italia as 'Furgone' cars, and all the style variations were prefixed with an 'F'. All styles had their variation of the three-wheelers, FA?, FB, FC and FD, then when cabs were presented, they became FDC (the C for cabin).


The FB had the same again end as the Model B, but with diminished gearing to take heavy a lot. As this was a inexpensive business automobile, most of the opera operate identified on the B scooter, was changed by displayed products. Guiding was through deal with bar, again like it's two wheeled table element, but it was very immediate, using supports and ball complete bones, all created it not very wonderful to generate. There was a selection of wooden or aluminum entry containers, or the FB could merely be bought 'chassis only'. In all by time development complete in Goal 1950, 2,001 FB's had been created, all in a Material Pink complete.


Again as with the FB style, the superseding FC style was strongly using the C/LC scooter. The FC still maintained the scooter raise end, to a business entry end, unfortunately maintaining the difficult steering. The wheels were hydraulically run by a feet your pedal, and the power was transferred onto the structure, instead of within the box, creating repair simpler. The athletes on the FC style were created of aluminum, and there was now a selection of entry box selections to be had. Between November 1952 when development began, and when it stopped the following November in 1953, Innocenti created 3,001 FC's, showing there was a increasing industry for tiny inexpensive business cars.


The first in the series of FD models, was the 125 FD, which instead of the earlier FB and FC models now had the commercial box at the rear, with a scooter front, like a traditional tricycle, making steering much easier. The FD had a very similar front end to the D scooter, except with stronger front forks and dampers. Because the engine was now in the middle of the scooter, the final drive was by means of prop shaft to the rear wheels. The second series FD125 started production in January 1954, with few changes over the first series. The handle bars had different Teleflex gear change, new light switch and horn button, along with minor alterations to the rear brakes. FD's had a choice of open or closed rear boxes. Between December 1952 and December 1953, 4,841 series one FD's were produced, with the series two production taking over in January 1954. Series two production stopped in August 1955, after 8,280 examples had been made.

A 150cc version was first introduced in August 1955, based on the second series of FD. The 150cc along with a larger carburettor gave a little more hp over its smaller sister. teleflex cables gave way to two gear cables (push-pull) on the 150 models, and rear springs were of the leaf design, allowing a load carrying capacity of 350kg's.

Few changes were made to the third series of FD models introduced in January 1953, mainly they were now only available in 150cc engine size. Epicyclical kick-starter was used, as in the later Model D scooters, and 10mm wheel studs were favoured instead of the 8mm earlier ones, making then stronger. Amazingly they had a turning circle of 1.75m, with no reverse gear though. A spare wheel was carried under the frame. The last series models, were very nice to drive and came with many different options for load carrying purposes. Production ceased in June 1959. with 6,570 examples be built. The series 3 FD was continuing to be sold into the sixties in the UK, as sales were very slow, probably due to the fact we do not share Italy's nice weather!


Although closely based on previous models FDC FD was now a closed cabin for the driver, and therefore the last term of his model, the car "C". The driver can now be protected from the elements, but if you want to have the doors, they were charged as an option from £ 12 10s 6d per pair on top of the price of £ 238 10s machine 0D. The FDC is still preserved handlebar scooter, but was wiper-type seat seats (elevator to allow access to the engine), side and rear indicators, reverse and manual selectable. These wipers are operated by pushing a lever inside the cabin from side to side! Manages startup and a variety of funds available from the trailer articulated barrels of paraffin, with its low operating costs, making these models very attractive for municipalities as they were marketed.
October 1957 and May 1959 were 12,118 examples of the Innocenti.


With a FLI has reached a 175cc engine and four new transmission with reverse. At first, the cabin is kept close and the provision of first-hand how the handlebars FDC, nuts have been changed to that of a management standard motorcycle Li won a friction lining and knurled screws below that could be tightened in rough driving conditions to avoid the oscillation direction! Electric six volts, and FLI can have the optional windshield wipers with electric. The taillights of the backlight keeps the type D, but with a base of the bulb of a light braking. To be provided behind the cab to bring a USB port and the wheel, while the spare wheel is carried on a cot in the back. Since July 1959, 10 608 sets of a FLI were made when the two series resumed in July 1960

The size of the tires and wheels were increased to 10 ", fork was completely redesigned, seemed to be put back in front, but was actually an advantage rather than after the link. The front shock absorbers, and a small pinch of where the speedometer and the choke knob, have been other improvements.
