CASA LAMBRETTA - IL MUSEO SCOOTER & LAMBRETTA

Al piano superiore dell'azienda Casa Lambretta si trova il Museo Scooter & Lambretta. In an edificio sobrio Vittorio Tessera è riuscito a mettere su una collection di scooter unica nel suo genere, sia per quantity by quality.

Fondato nel 2001 in collaborazione con il comune di Rodano, il museo, allora ancora nella sua sede originaria, fu inserito nel 2004 nel Circuito Musei di Impresa della Provincia di Milano “Milano Città del Progetto” e dal 2010 è nell'attuale sede.

I MODELS IN ESPOSITION

Around 160 models in esposizione che documentano in modo esemplare la storia dello scooter. I primi scooter furono costruiti prima della seconda guerra mondiale, mentre i models più “recenti” risalgono agli anni '70. Oltre alle marche italiane Vittorio ha anche esposto scooter di costruttori provenienti da Inghilterra, Germania, Austria, Spagna, Stati Uniti, Russia, Francia, Giappone, Belgio, Repubblica Ceca e Svizzera.

Nelle prime delle cinque sale ci sono circa dieci Vespe dal V98 ai modelli più recenti. Proseguendo verso le altre sale possiamo ammirare tre scooter Belmondo risalenti agli anni '40, probabilmente ciò che ispirò la realizzazione del Paperino della Piaggio.

Nelle sale 2 e 3 ci sono i diversi scooter categorizzati secondo anno di costruzione e paese di produione. Lo stato dei models esposti è impeccabile, da restauri perfetti, scooter appena trovati in un granaio a models perfettamente conservati o quasi nuovi nel loro stato originale. Qui c'è praticamente di tutto. Tra i modelli più rari abbiamo la Honda Juno K (il primo scooter della Honda risalente al 1954), il Nibbio costruito in Lombardia in 1947, il Bastert e anche l'Auto-Fauteuil (il primo esemplare di scooter del 1908).

LA COLLECTION LAMBRETTA

The cuore della collezione è rappresentato dalle due sale dedicate alla Lambretta. From 1947 to 1971, nella vicina fabbrica a Lambrate, la Innocenti costruì più di quattro milioni di Lambrette. Se si aggiungono anche i modelli costruiti su licenza e provenienti da India, Spagna, Germania, Francia, Asia e America Latina, la Lambretta, con i suoi modelli derivati, rappresenta uno degli scooter più diffusi su scala mondiale.

Grazie alla sua passione decennale, Vittorio è riuscito a creare una collezione unica di esemplari della Lambretta: dai primi, più noti modelli A con numero telaio 2, dal modello FB cassonato a 3 ruote del 1949 fino a due Lambrette series 2 con per verniciatura originale i giochi olimpici tenutisi a Roma nel 1960, il modello TV 175 serie 3 completamente dorato per l'attrice Jane Mansfield fino alle diverse Lambrette di colore giallo con quadrifoglio riservate alla famiglia Innocenti.

Particolarmente interestingi sono i prototipi ei pezzi unici che, senza l'intervento di Vittorio avvenuto per tempo, sarebbero andati perduti.

QUALI ALTRI MUSEI E POSSIBILE VISITARE NELLE VICINANZE?

 

Casa Lambretta, una lunga storia ...

CASA LAMBRETTA - SCOOTER & LAMBRETTA MUSEUM

Above the head offices of Casa Lambretta we have the Museo Scooter & Lambretta. In a plain building Vittorio has managed to create an exhibition which is unique for the quality and quantity of the scooters on display.

Founded in 2001 in its original location with the support of the city of Rodano, the museum was included in the provincial museum system Milano Citta del Progetto in 2004 and since 2010 it is hosted in its present location.

THE MODELS ON DISPLAY

Around 160 exhibits exemplify document the history of the scooter. The first models were built before the Second World War, whereas the latest exhibits date back to the 70s. Besides the Italian models, Vittorio has also collected scooters produced by manufacturers from England, Germany, Austria, Spain, USA, Russia, France, Japan, Belgium, Czech Republic and Switzerland.

In the first of the five exhibition halls there are about ten Vespas from the V98 models onwards. When moving to the other halls, we pass by three Belmondo scooters from the 40s, probably what inspired Piaggio to design the Paperino.

In the halls 2 and 3 the different scooters are grouped according to year and country of manufacture. The exhibition is just impressive: from perfect restorations, scooters found in a barn and in preserved state, to new vehicles in original condition, here you can just find everything. Among the rarest models we have the Honda Juno K (Honda's first scooter dating back to 1954, the Nibbio, built in Lombardy in 1947, the Bastert monotrace or also the Auto-Fauteuil (the first scooter model dating back to 1908).

THE LAMBRETTA COLLECTION

The heart of the collection is represented by the Lambretta models displayed in the further two halls. From 1947 to 1971 Innocenti built over four million of Lambretta scooters in the nearby factory at Lambrate. If you also add the licensed production from India, Spain, Germany, France, Asia and South America, the Lambretta represents one of the most produced scooters worldwide.

Thanks to his decade long passion Vittorio was able to raise a unique collection of Lambretta scooters: from the first, widely known models A with chassis number 2, to the three wheel FB Lambretta with box casing dating back to 1949, two Lambrettas series 2 with genuine paint for the Olympic games which took place in Rome in 1960, the completely gold -plated TV 175 series 3 for the actress Jane Mansfield, to different Lambrettas painted in yellow and with a four-leaf clover, reserved for the Innocenti family.

The absolute highlight are the prototypes and one-off models which would probably not have survived if Vittorio had not rescued them in time.

WHICH MUSEUMS CAN BE VISITED IN THE NEARBY AREA?

 

Casa Lambretta, a long story ...

CASA LAMBRETTA – THE MUSEO SCOOTERS & LAMBRETTA

This is located above the business premises of Casa Lambretta Museum Scooters & Lambretta. In an inconspicuous building with an exposed aggregate concrete finish, Vittorio Tessera has created a collection that is unique in terms of the quantity and, above all, the quality of the scooters on display.

Established in its original location in 2001 with the support of the city of Rodano, the museum was added to the provincial museum system in 2004 Milano Citta del Progetto and has been at its current location since 2010.

THE EXHIBITS

The around 160 exhibits document the history of scooter construction. The oldest scooters were built before World War II, the youngest exhibits are from the 1970s. In addition to the Italian brands, Vittorio has brought together scooters from manufacturers from: England, Germany, Austria, Spain, USA, Russia, France, Japan, Belgium, the Czech Republic and Switzerland.

In the first of the five exhibition halls there is a selection of around ten Vespas from the V98 to later models. On the way to the other rooms, we pass three Belmondo scooters from the 1940s. The presumed inspiration for Piaggio to develop the Paperino.

In halls two and three, the various scooters are grouped according to year of construction and country of manufacture. The conditions leave little to be desired, from perfect restorations to freshly pulled out of the barn to preserved conditions and almost new vehicles in their original condition, everything is included here. The rarest exhibits include the Honda Juno K (Honda's first scooter from 1954, the Nibbio built in Lombardy in 1947, the Bastert single-track car or the car armchair (the first example of a scooter from 1908).

THE LAMBRETTA COLLECTION

The heart of the collection are the two other halls with the Lambrettas. From 1947 to 1971 Innocenti built more than four million Lambrettas at the nearby Lambrate plant. If you add up the license builds from India, Spain, Germany, France, Asia and South America, the Lambretta with its derivatives is one of the most popular two-wheelers in the world.

Thanks to his decades-long obsession, Vittorio has amassed a unique collection of Lambrettas: From the oldest, known Lambretta, the m (A) model with chassis number 2, the FB tricycle from 1949 with an ice cream superstructure, to currently two Series 2 Lambrettas with original paintwork for the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, the completely gold-plated TV 175 Series 3 for actress Jane Mansfield to various lambrettas in the yellow paintwork with four-leaf clover, which was reserved for the Innocenti family themselves.

The absolute highlight are the prototypes and one-offs, which without the intervention of Vittorio in the proverbial last minute would probably not have been preserved for posterity.

Part one: who is Casa Lambretta?

Casa Lambretta what founded in 1980 by Vittorio Tessera in order to improve the spare parts supply for the Lambretta. At that time, even in Italy, the Lambretta scooter was considered as a stepchild, but today, almost forty years later, the Lambretta is more popular than ever and the Casa Lambretta now has a wide range of spare parts for the Lambretta, from the model A to the 200, you can find almost everything in our Casa Lambretta shop.

 

 

The most important spare parts supplier worldwide

However, Casa Lambretta is much more than -probably- the main supplier of spare parts for Lambretta. But we'll tell you about that next time.

Casa Lambretta is in Rodano, a small village of the metropolitan area of ​​Milan, not far away from the airport of Linate and about 15 minutes from the Centro Studi and the former Innocenti factory. 

This is Vittorio's homeland and this is one of the reasons why he decided to devote himself to the Lambretta. Vittorio tells us:

"First of all I'd like to say that I don't make any preferences, I like all scooters: Vespa, ISO, Lambretta, Moto Guzzi, Gilera. All of them are a precious and beautiful witness of a time from which we still have a lot to learn. Anyway, for organizational reasons I had to decide in which sector I could focus. And since this region is also the homeland of the Lambretta, I decided to devote myself to the Lambretta."Vittorio Tessera, Casa Lambretta

Casa Lambretta moved to the current premises in 2010. Shortly after their move we visited them before the Italian summer break in order to get in a supply of spare parts and to help Julia buy her first Lambretta, a beautiful SX 150 (see article here).

Made in Italy:

Meanwhile Vittorio's 800 square meter premises include his spare parts warehouse, The workshop for his three restorers, Mario, Maurizio and Fabio (permanent employees of the company) and his new office. 95% of the Casa Lambretta spare parts are made in Italy. The small percentage of parts bought in addition is labeled with an A which states the origin (Asia) of the product. Vittorio's wife, Orietta, is responsible for the orders placed by the Casa Lambretta concessionaires.

Museo Scooter & Lambretta

On the floor above the premises there's the Scooter & Lambretta museum. We have already written about it Casa Lambretta museum, but we'll report again about the museum, its history and exhibits.

Casa Lambretta concessionaire for Germany

Since the Eurolambretta 2003 Scooter Center is Casa Lambretta concessionaire for Germany and we still like to remember how we, together with our friends Roberto Graupner and Markus Fröschen, successfully concluded the deal with Vittorio in Assisi. From a mere business relationship and the love for the Lambretta we developed a long and close friendship.

Part 1: What or who is Casa Lambretta?

You can answer that relatively matter-of-factly. Casa Lambretta will Founded in 1980 by Vittorio Tesserato improve the supply of spare parts for the Lambretta. At a time when the Lambretta is being treated like an absolute stepchild, and not just in Italy. Almost forty years later the Lambretta is more popular than ever before and Casa Lambretta has made the range so broad and deep that the spare parts supply is better than ever. From parts for the Model A to those for the dl 200, almost everything is available today: Casa Lambretta shop

 

Most important parts supplier worldwide

Casa Lambretta is much more than the -probably- the world's most important parts supplier for the Lambretta. But we'll get to that another time.

You will find Casa in Rodano, part of the metropolitan city of Milan (formerly the province of Milan). Not far from Linate Airport and approximately 15 minutes from the Centro Studi and the former Innocenti factory premises in Lambrate.

And here, in his origins, lies one of the reasons why Vittorio, fortunately for us, focused so much on the Lambretta. This is how Vittorio tells us:

“I want to make one thing clear, I'm not a scooter racist. I like you all Vespa, ISO, Lambretta, Moto Guzzi, Gilera. These are all important and beautiful contemporary witnesses of a bygone era, from whom one can learn a lot. However, after a few years I had to commit myself for organizational reasons. And since the Lambretta was born in this region, it was my homeland's reputation to choose the Lambretta. "Vittorio Tessera, Casa Lambretta

Casa Lambretta moved into the current business premises in 2010. Shortly afterwards we visited him in order to bunker parts before the Italian summer break and to help our then and now current Julia with the acquisition of her first Lambretta. A wonderfully beautiful SX 150. We reported here.

Prodotto in Italia

Meanwhile, Vittorio is in the building 800 square meters of his parts warehouse, the workshop for the three permanent restorers (Mario, Maurizio and Fabio) and his new study. 95% of Casa Lambretta parts are made in Italy. The small percentage of purchased parts is usually marked with an A (= Asia) in Vittorio's parts lists in the Origin category. Vittorio's wife Orietta keeps track of the orders from the Casa Lambretta concessionaires. Greetings to everyone!

Museo Scooter & Lambretta

This is located above the business premises Museo Scooter & Lambretta. We already reported here -> Casa Lambretta Museum, but will also start again here and present the museum, its concept and the exhibits in it in detail.

Casa Lambretta Concessionaire Germany

Since the Eurolambretta 2003 that is Scooter Center for Casa Lambretta concessionaire Germany and we fondly remember how we, with our friends Roberto Graupner and Markus Fröschen (also best regards!), wrapped up the deal with Vittorio in Assisi. A long-term and intimate friendship has grown beyond the pure business relationship and the love for Lambretta.

In the next few episodes we want to show you the development of the quality of Casa Lambretta parts using a few examples. Introduce the museum and the exhibits in detail and take a look at the beginnings of the Casa Lambretta company. Above all, on how Vittorio just shortly before recovered important documents and scooters from the factory.

Casa Lambretta footboard strip sets Li family

The supply of spare parts for the Lambretta is probably better today than it has been for fifty years. The range of parts from various manufacturers is getting bigger and more colorful.

We remember with horror the supply of spare parts at the time we did it Scooter Center Started in 1992. Even if the parts did fit, the gray tones of the rubber parts of a series 3, for example, changed from whitish yellow to anthracite. Supplying series 1 and 2 parts was hard to imagine.

We are Casa Lambretta dealers for Germany

Scooter Center Team with Vittorio Tessera

Fortunately, we have been since the beginning of the new millennium Casa Lambretta dealer for Germany. A nice report on the history of Victor Tessera and Casa Lambretta can be found in the November and December 2017 issue of Scootering. The report is currently also available online:

https://www.scootering.com/scootering-classics-story-of-vittorio-tessera/

There is an outline of the history of Casa Lambretta, which began in 1979/80. So not that long after the end of production of the dl / GP series. The parallel between Vittorio's experiences with Lambretta in the early days and those of the Lambretta drivers in the early nineties is particularly beautiful. Where a minority had to acquire a thick skin to justify the Lambretta. But we seem to digress ...

Actually, it's about the step rails from Casa Lambretta for the Li family. Let's do it chronologically.

Lambretta TV 175 Series 1

It's very easy for the TV 175 Series 1. For the top model from Innocenti, which was built around 10.000 times between 1957 and 1958, there is the

Lambretta LI series 1

With the Li series 1 there is a distinction between the 125 cc and the 150 cc models. The Li 125 comes with continuous aluminum strips at the front and the gray plastic strips on the running boards:

The Li 150 Series 1 has aluminum strips at the front, into which rubber tread strips are inserted and which are closed off by the tread strip end pieces:

Lambretta LI & TV Series 2

After more than 150.000 series 1 Lambrettas have been built, the series 2 is the successor. The solution for the gradation of the models by - among other things - the step rails is retained. The TV 175 Series 2 gets the same floor strips and end pieces as the Li 150.

Lambretta LI series 3

With the Series 3 it's very easy. Here, all models get the same set of steps made of plastic in gray, paired with inner aluminum strips with rubber inlay and step rail end pieces as a finishing touch:

Lambretta dl/GP

In the case of the dl / GP series, in addition to the color - black instead of gray - only the design of the treadboard end pieces and of course the specific lengths at the front for the other leg shield of the dl / GP compared to series 3 changes:

Built according to original Innocenti plans

Plan / drawing for baseboards original Innocenti Lambretta

The nice thing about the Casa Lambretta parts is next to that excellent quality the fact that many parts after the original Innocenti drawings are manufactured. The correct mounting material is included in the scope of delivery.

Made with original tools

Machine / tool for baseboards original Innocenti Lambretta

In the case of the plastic step strips for Series 3, the attention to detail can go a little further. They are cast on the original tools by one of the original manufacturers for Innocenti. So they correspond exactly to the original in every aspect. Also with regard to the corrugation on the top. An advantage that should not be underestimated for an accurate restoration.
