Synopsis

The Lambretta Bible is the in-depth guide to the world’s finest scooter, from the Model A to the GP 200. The Lambretta story doesn’t end there though, with the focus moving on to machines prepared and built by Lambretta Concessionaires. The book ends with a look at the main British dealer specials of the 1960s.
Independent Reviews

Reviews for the previous editions:

If you own a Lambretta, are thinking of purchasing one of these “fun” scooters, or are just an enthusiast; this book should be in your library.
Norm Mort, Author & Freelance Reviewer

Pete Davies, who has been involved in Lambrettas for many years, including several as the LCGB’s former vehicle registrar, understands the uniqueness of this affection extremely well. This has allowed him to put together what is undeniably the finest historical book about Lambrettas in the UK ... For those who don’t already own it, this is a superb addition to the Lambretta bookshelf ... this is a unique book, with information about Lambrettas from a British perspective, which no other publication possesses. It truly earns its title as a Lambretta Bible. To paraphrase Joshua in Chapter 1, Verse 8: “Keep this book always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” Can’t go wrong with that advice.
Jet Set

Should appeal to every Lambretta owner or enthusiast.

Anybody who wants to know just about everything there is to know about the Italian Lambretta's built between 1947 and 1971 cannot afford to be without it. ... the DNA of these bikes is literally all there ... But, this hardback is much more than a Lambretta anoraks dream; it is a rattling good read. I picked it up to thumb through it and suddenly realised two hours had disappeared ... The author Davies and Veloce the publisher have done an excellent job over 160 pages and it is well worth £29.99, both as a definitive reference work, as well as a good general read.

Darrell Milnes for Jet Set, Official magazine of the Lambretta Club of Great Britain, September 2008
Finally after months of waiting and speculation on the LCGB lnternet Forum, Pete Davies' Iong-awaited 'Lambretta Bible' has hit the shelves.
First impressions are very favourable, the quality of the paper used is very high and the slip cover adorning the book as you can see from the above picture features a number of Lambrettas owned LCGB Members.
The book itself traces the history of our favourite form of 2-wheeled transport from the Model A right through to the GP200E, with some excellent photos, some of which I have never seen before. Of particular interest to me are the chapters dealing with the dealer specials, and these do not disappoint, with rarely seen photos, and comprehensive details about the machines. For the Lambretta owner and enthusiast, this book is an essential purchase, and should, when combined with Sticky's excellent workshop manual, provide the Lambretta owner with everything they need to know.
The Lambretta Bible' may be seen as not perfect in some people's eyes, but Pete should be commended for producing a not only beautiful Iooking volume, but
an interesting, and factual read ... well done! My advice if you're thinking about buying a copy ... stop thinking and get one!

Scooter-forums.com, *****, 2008:
Veloce have done it again with another wonderful scooter publication. 'The Lambretta Bible' is a comprehensive look at the Lambretta marque, with a good deal of detail and some fantastic pictures, some of which I've not seen before. This one is hardback too, so will look just dandy on your coffee table to impress all your mates. With 160 pages, 'The Lambretta Bible' is sure to keep them - and you - entertained.

Ian Kerr for www.inter-bike.co.uk, August 2008:
You cannot help but think a book with such a title is only for the real enthusiast, but here you would be wrong, there is lot more behind this book. Yes, anybody who wants to know just about everything there is to know about the Italian Lambrettas built between 1947 and 1971 cannot afford to be without it. At the rear you can get carb settings, gear ratios, frame numbers, colour schemes - the DNA of these bikes is literally all there. Given that it has been written by Pete Davies, who was the vehicle registrar for the Lambretta Club and is now running the British Lambretta Archive in the UK, you would expect nothing less!
But, this hardback is much more than a Lambretta anoraks dream; it is a rattling good read. I picked it up to thumb through it and suddenly realised two hours had disappeared. This has got something to do with the way the text is given in each chapter on the specific models.
First you get the information on the model including the price when new. Then you get the production changes and this is then followed up by a "Did you know?" section that has some fascinating facts about the model. Lastly there is information on "What the tester said!" at the time in the various press reviews which really helps bring it all alive.
The text is well spaced and clearly readable in amongst some excellent period black and white images and modern shots and colour plates of restored bikes. Add in some advertising brochures, the odd line drawing and some sport, all pulled together by an easy going writing style and you have something well worth reading. Whatever your particular interest in two wheels you are guaranteed to learn something!
The author Davies and Veloce the publisher have done an excellent job over 160 pages and it is well worth £29.99, both as a definitive reference work, as well as a good general read.

SCTRCST Scooter Internet Radio - sctrcst.com, July 2008:
So as our English friends might say, lets get to this week's scooter shite. Pete Davies is one of those English fellows, like Nigel Cox whose name is synonymous with scooter history in Europe. Pete was around way back in the late 70s and heyday of the huge Scarborough rallies in England and has stayed true to the Lambretta badge since. Today he remains immersed in Lambrettas running the British Lambretta archives.
Being an admitted Lambretta neophyte, I am no expert, but I will go out on a limb and say that both the beginner and experienced Lambretta fans are going to love Pete's new book, 'The Lambretta Bible'. The book outlines in great detail the production run of every Lambretta model from 1948 until 1971 and the book also includes extra details on non-production scooters including those modified by English dealers. This is one of those books that sucks you into the brand, even if you have had only a passing int
erest in the Lambretta scooters. Of course, now I find myself wondering if I am missing out not having a Series 2 LI in my stable. Pete has included model by model frame numbers, paint schemes, Lambretta's Central Office notes on model by model changes with carburetor specs and gear ratios for every Lambretta model made.
The Lambretta Bible is published by Veloce Publishing in England, but as you might expect, it is available from all the major book outlets. With all the detail and hundreds of glossy color pictures of some of the best Lambrettas ever made, you won't be disappointed.

The Daily Echo (Bournemouth), September 2008:
A new publication takes an in-depth look at one of the 'world's greatest scooter marques - Lambretta. 'The Lambretta Bible' by Pete Davies (£29.99) includes detailed information on the main Italian-built models, the Lambretta Concessionaires machines and British dealer specials.
This ultimate reference to classic Lambretta scooters covers all Lambretta models built in Italy from 1947 to 1971 with a complete model-by-model record of each machine.
Included are: new, previously unpublished photographs, frame number information, full machine specifications and production changes, year-by-year, paint code information, original publicity and original promotional material and detailed information from ex-dealer and Lambretta Concessionaires staff.
