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 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 genuine British version TV200 is a well presented example with a Welsh Haverford registration and we believe that it has always been kept in the area there from new. The old blue V5 is showing the scooter as a combination however there are no signs that we could see of any sidecar attachment. It was purchased by our vendor in 2003 and was re-registered at that time we believe retaining its original number. In recent times there has been some modernisation and a restoration done by well known Andy Francis Scooters. We noted the electrics are now 12V, the rear shock is s quality adjustable version and the wheel rims are tubeless SIP versions. The ignition is new and all keys are also present for steering lock and toolbox. There are many original parts including the front disc brake and original Giuliari seat with a new green cover. The scooter currently has a Spanish engine installed with a Rapido 200cc top end, 25mm Dellorto carburettor and SITO large bore exhaust. The scooter started up easily at the time of consignment (as can be seen on the below video) and we are told runs very well. The original engine is included with the scooter and could be easily re-installed which includes the original SH1/ 20 carburettor and AF exhaust along with the original air box and cylinder cowl.
