Absolute Beginners. My sisters first Lambretta delivered new in 1957/8. It was over a £100, still a lot of money in those days. They paid cash, but you could buy them from the dealers "on the never never". A slang term for easy payments which never seemed to end. If stuck for a deposit, some dealers in London, would take in Cycles, Cameras, Binoculars, Tape Recorders (remember them)? almost anything to get you started! I later purchased my first GS150 from their friends in 1963.
