White used on 1957 LD 150

Recommended Posts

I am a new member.  I just bought a 1957 Lambretta LD 150 that appears to be all there but is in need of a complete overhaul.  The scooter is still in South Carolina where it's been since new though it was last registered in 1965.  My son who lives in the area will ship it to me in Maine.  I bought the scooter because it is identical to one that was owned by a classmate when I was in high school back in the late fifties.  I wanted one then so badly I couldn't sleep.  So this is all about nostalgia.  The scooter from my high school days was all white or off white.  Is there a way to determine the color Lambretta would have used when the scooter was manufactured? My intention is to paint this scooter with that white rather than its current blue.  Thanks!
