From the Publisher
"

Pete Davies, who has been involved in Lambrettas for many years, including several as the LCGB’s former vehicle registrar, understands the uniqueness of this affection extremely well. This has allowed him to put together what is undeniably the finest historical book about Lambrettas in the UK ... For those who don’t already own it, this is a superb addition to the Lambretta bookshelf ... this is a unique book, with information about Lambrettas from a British perspective, which no other publication possesses. It truly earns its title as a Lambretta Bible. To paraphrase Joshua in Chapter 1, Verse 8: "Keep this book always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful." Can’t go wrong with that advice" - .Jet Set"

Should appeal to every Lambretta owner or enthusiast" - British Dealer News
