Very high quality restorationV5 for use on UK roads The Lambretta TV175 series 3 was launched in March 1962 and it was the first scooter supplied with an internal disc brake. It was a remarkable change from the previous TV175 Series 2 with new sleek and slim styling. The front shock absorbers were enhanced with extra dampers as in the previous TV Series 2 models. The TV Series 3 also had larger silent blocks than the previous engines and it had a very good reputation as a smooth and well-balanced scooter with great handling attributes. The larger engined TV200 quickly followed the TV175 slim style in early 1963, at the specific request of the British importer Lambretta Concessionaires who wanted an even more powerful model than the TV175 to satisfy their customer base. Genuine TV200 Lambrettas were instantly recognised as the GT200 to differentiate them from the TV175 models.

This beautifully restored example of a genuine GT200 was sold new by Surrey Scooters and has always been in Surrey ownership. Sold new to a Thomas Dawson on November 8th, 1963 it was then sold to a David Stagg in 1968 before being sold to legendary Lambretta guru Chuck Swonnell whose name appears on the original buff logbook. Chuck owned the scooter for approximately 40 years before leaving it in his will to his friend Vic Dickens who in turn sold the scooter to our vendor just over a year ago. The striking aspect of this GT200 is the sheer quality of the restoration and the fastidious attention to detail. The vendor is a collector of Rimini Lambretta restorations and that is the bar that this scooter has been matched to with an eye for detail to the standard of his other scooters. The panels all fit and line up perfectly and the 2 pack paint standard is astonishing. The chromed parts were electroplated by S&T Bristol. Original parts were reused all over the scooter, the NOS Carello headlight and the NOS CEV rear light fitted. Wherever the original could not be reused only high quality Casa or Scootopia parts were used, save for the Pegasus seat which is the very high quality Scooter Centre version. All keys fit and work perfectly. The side panels used are the later version with flashes, as that was the preference of the vendor, however the original earlier style panels are supplied with the scooter. The engine has been fully rebuilt and tuned as a standard TV200 by John Balcome of JB tuning, to be as perfect as it could be. Our consultant was able to ride this GT and it rode as a brand new scooter, smooth and powerful. A GT200 with first buff logbook is a rare find in itself. To have the whole history from new is even rarer. And a restoration of this magnitude and quality costs many thousands of pounds. This wonderful scooter is one of the best GT200s we have seen.
