Lambretta is an iconic and recognisable brand. If you’re a mod you’ll certainly have an affinity to it. The Lambretta is more than just a music and culture icon, however, it’s long been one of the most important vehicles in the life of many European cities and its residents.
As motorbikes and cars get older, of course, they are more likely to suffer from engine problems. This stylish 1963 Series 3 came to us because its owner was having a few problems.
At White’s Bodyworks, we’ve seen our fair share of classic vehicles over the years. As a family-owned business, we’ve worked hard to develop our reputation for renovations, repairs and resprays when it comes to a whole variety of vintage vehicles from cars to motorbikes.
What sets us apart from other garages in the Home Counties and West Sussex is the passion we have for classic cars and motorbikes. That was why we were so happy to see this particular Lambretta coming to our fully equipped workshop.

Lambretta itself in the intervening years has become a style icon, producing bikes as well as a whole host of accessories such as clothing.

Our Work on the 1963 Series 3 Lambretta 125 Slim Style
Mechanical problems on classic vehicles can be challenging. On the one hand, the motors are simpler and easier to understand, on the other, finding the right parts can be troublesome.
It’s important to work with a garage that understands not only the workings of the motorbike itself but also one that ensures the initial integrity of the design is maintained. At White’s Bodyworks, we were able to use all our expertise to solve the mechanical problems of this particular Lambretta and get it back on the road in next to no time.
