My original LI150 series 3. 1966. SE London plate with buff log book and sold from a dealer a mile down the road from me back in the day.
Ok I put myself to sleep with that one!

Oh and here's the TV175 I've had for just over a year now.
Restored by Scootopia in Weston with a 12v conversion
I've added a 'GT' very slim style rear carrier (aka Super/Ken Cobbing which is odd), some original red and black candy stripe legshield beading, bubble grips and damper gators.

I was extremely fortunate enough to have been involved in the Le Mans Goes Mod weekender in 2012 (see Theirry's thread elsewhere on the site mentioning 2014) and rode the scooter around the track with a few other like minded nutters...

Do you have anymore pictures of the rear carrier on your TV and what happened to your GS?

Hello mate. Here's a pic of the rack resting on something it shouldn't. Apologies for the large size...




The GS- well...it's a story to be told over a pint sometime perhaps. All I'll say is that i've managed to end up with two Lambrettas that i'm thoroughly happy with.

Nicky- I used to read about your trails and tribulations with your GS on the Yahoo GS/SS Group up to the point where you put it up for sale. A lot of your troubles I too experienced with my GS so understood why you sold it. You did well if you got a restored TV from Scootopia for it, never mind two Lambretta's! 

As for the carrier I wanted to see if it was similar to the one on my SX. When I get a chance, I'll post some photos up of them.

Lovely!

Here's mine.. 1963 Vespa GS160, mk 1 and a Lambretta SX200. Had the SX for over 15 years now with no problems, with the GS I've had the usual battery issues and crapy coils problems but seems to be running sweet now-
