Davies, who runs the British Lambretta Archive, takes a detailed look at one of the world’s great scooter marques. The Bible examines Italian-built models, Lambretta Concessionaires machines and British dealer specials built between 1947 and 1971, creating a model by model record of each model.

The book includes new and previously unpublished photographs, accounts from Lambretta Concessionaires staff, full scooter specifications, production changes, original publicity and promo material, and even year by year paint code information.
