I can’t remember where i found this photograph so apologies to whomever first uploaded it (let me know and I’ll give you the credit, it’s well deserved!).
Anyway, I fell in love with this image straight away, of a chap working the metal presses in what must have been a very hot and noisy job. As you can see, a pair of Lambretta Series 2 panels are stamped out of one piece of steel, the factory worker about to offer them into the next machine for trimming.
The Spanish factory suffered plenty of turmoil throughout the 1970s and 80s until it eventually closed, but it was just one of those towns you had to visit on your Lambretta one day – so we did back in 2010 on trip down the west coast through France from England.
