Welcome to Lambro, feel free to browse the site, at any time you would like to come back to this page, just click the big Lambro above. Don't forget to check the Parts section of the site, as it contains parts help, and for sale and wanted adverts.
If Anybody has any sales leaflets, owners manuals or other literature they want to share, (or sell me) please contact me, that way we can all share the knowledge!
If you own a Lambro, you can submit your machine and personal details to our database, hopefully we can build up more help and information on these models, as well as owners who may be able to provide assistance in some shape or form.
Although we do not have any Lambro links at the moment, this is due to I could not find any other sites regarding my Lambro on the internet, and so set this site up for other like minded enthusiasts. If you do have a site about Lambros, please let me know so I can link to your site.
I hope to change and update the site more often, as I have leaflets, manuals and a few other things to add, but spare time is as with every body, in short supply!
Taken from a Model A brochure, showing Innocenti's intention for load carriers.
Innocenti and then later on Scooters India Ltd, API and Frambretta have always produced three-wheeled scooters alongside its more well known two wheeled motor scooters, from the earliest days when they started with the 125M series (later to become 'A').
Although there is a picture in the first A model leaflet (above), it is thought that none were ever produced, apart from a prototype model. The FB is the first known three wheeled Lambretta to be produced in Feb of 1949.
They were known in Italy as 'Furgone' vehicles, and all the model variants were prefixed with an 'F'. All models had their version of the three-wheelers, FA, FB, FC and FD, then when cabs were introduced, they became FDC (the C for cabin). Later on models were designated by engine size, but this soon switched to weight that could be carried. The little Lambro had the sad distinction of being the last vehicles produced by Lambretta from the Milan factory before it finally closed its doors in 1972. Today the Lambro is still going strong, still made using the original tooling from the Innocenti factory. Scooters India Limited (S.I.L) purchased the complete Lambretta factory back in the early seventies, and even now offer a diesel engined version. API in India still produce some form of Lambro also, but based on much earlier models.
Uses for Lambros
The Lambro was a very versatile little load carrier, and was put to many different uses.
