Which is the Spanish one? Is it by Dalia?  I have a Tekno from Denmark that might be similar.

<p>It's over six years ago I started this topic up. I bought two Mettoy Lambrettas this week , I was going to take the screen off and fit to the one I have but I decided to make a new one up , now I need to find a correct rider for this as the rider is from the Triang Vespa shown, I will look to restoring these other two now .

Interesting collection of scooters. I have an old metal Johillco toy motor bike. Not a scooter but as close as I come. Thanks for showing your collection, quite varied in both style of scooter and scale.

They are very nice and you living so near to the Innocenti factory is amazing, I love Scooters but never owned a real one , I have some larger ones which children can ride my best being the Peg Vespa which I believe I put in the Triang Pedal car topic. My love for Scooters is from my youth I was in the second generation Mod culture in 1979 , it has never left me and lots of my mates are well into their real scooters , during the sixties my eldest sister was friends with Ronnie Lane of the Small Faces they were from where I grew up and still live in London.
