Texas175

Finally gave in and got my first Lambretta...

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Kim...I'm sure I know quite a few of you already! After riding V_espa scooters of my own and Lambretta scooters that belong to my husband (and debating V_espa vs. Lambretta for MANY years-half in jest, though-just to irritate him), I finally have my own...a 1962 TV 175. 

I'm from Florida and also lived in Georgia for awhile..now in Texas. I still have my first running bike from the 90's-an American Rally 200 and also my European Rally 200. We have various Lambrettas including some Li's-one Series 1 and a couple of Series 3's, an LD that I love, and even a Jet 200.

FYI for when you are swinging through Texas:We have a monthly meet up here on the first Sunday of each month here in Austin, Texas at the Crown and Anchor Pub...normally at noon, but during this time of year for a couple of months it's a little later in the day...due to the heat...also, we have the Austin Hill Country Classic each year on whichever weekend May 1st falls on (hint hint:mark your calendars!). You can find the Austin Metro Vintage Scooter Group on Facebook for more info!

So, I have crossed over to the dark side, finally!

See you around!....o---)o......
