Lambros and France

Lambretta F300Lambretta F300 Three Wheeler

The F300 was marketed along side the FD 125 in France. It was available as chassis only, a pickup back version (with optional tarpaulin cover to resemble a closed box) and with an option of a 'habitacle' for the driver.

The F300 was a little cheaper than the Italian produced FD125 and had very similar performance specifications.

If is important to identify whether the three-wheeler is the F300 or the FD125 (and as both are 125cc) it is important to not assume that if it was purchased in France, its not necessarily an F300. Here are some useful identifying features to differentiate between them.

This list is by no means exhaustive, there are many differences and many similarities. These are some of the ones you are likely to see in photos. Amendments were also made to both vehicles over the course of their production, the pictures are taken from one specific parts manual for each model.

Lambro 125

Although the 175cc and 200cc versions of the Lambro were marketed and sold in France, The Lambro 125 was the 125cc version of the Lambro 175 and Lambro 450. The Lambro 125 was built in Milan at the Innocenti factory alongside the 175cc and 200cc versions. The Lambro 125 was known previously as the Lambretta Li 125 (Fli 125).

The 125cc engine meant that the Lambro 125 was a 'sans permis' vehicle. This allowed anyone over the age of 16 to drive the Lambro with no driving licence.

The earlier Lambro 125, based on the Lambro 175 shared the chassis prefix of M41 but the later Lambro 125 based on the Lambro 450 had the chassis prefix of M41/5.




Square Cab Lambros

The Lambro 500L was produced with a 125cc for the French market although as previously it was marketed alongside the larger 200cc 550V model (the one with the steering wheel).

Very few of the Lambro 500L were produced with the 125cc engine for the French market.
