Hey Alfie, yup, LI150 series 2, everything original UK bike [except the gold leaf], even the rusty white is the original paint..
I had loads [40+] of these as a youngster, got older, sold them, moved on, got priced out of the market and just bought back into it with this one.
Lovely to ride, Lambrettas were always more fun to ride than vespas, better steering [geometery?], longer wheelbase and much better center of gravity....you ever had one?
Regards from old London.

Alfie, agreed, SXs [200s] are looking at close to 10k, same with the TVs....I still used a P200E [pic on the page], its a joy in London traffic. Were you part of a scooter club?, or a mod perhps? [i was in the erarly 80s, one of those 1st generation revivalists after the release of quadrophenia]. Truth is when one comes to appreciate the stylish nature of italian scooters your hooked for life. I also use a moto guzzi v50 , i loved the shape of the thing for years prior to becoming aware that it was designed by bertone along the lines of the GP....makes perfect visual sense to me!
Stay well, you got any pics of the SX?
All the best from London.
