The machine offered here is one of a handful of official replicas of the iconic Lambretta scooter ridden by actor Phil Daniels in the cult motion picture 'Quadrophenia'. Released in 1979, the film follows Daniels' character Jimmy, a young working class 'Mod' who hates his dead-end job and despises his parents, living only for parties, pills and his scooter-riding mates. 'Quadrophenia' famously dramatised the 1964 Whitsun Bank Holiday violent clash between Mods and their Rocker enemies in Brighton, an event 'celebrating' its 50th anniversary this year. The Who's 1973 concept album of the same name provided the film's memorable soundtrack.

The 'Jimmy' replicas were used to promote 'Quadrophenia' when the DVD version was re-released. They were authorised by the film company and made by recognised scooter-building specialist David John Wyburn using original Lambretta Series 3 models dating from circa 1966. This one is numbered '2' on the bodywork and comes with a certificate from the film production company signed by story consultant Alan Fletcher. We are advised that others in the series are owned by The Who and Liam Gallagher.

First registered in the UK in 2003, the machine has been painted in the correct colour scheme and carries the film version's registration 'KRU 251' on the front mudguard. Other noteworthy features include Southend shield badges, Wassell Lambretta badge, Stadium mirrors, Vigan Red Gem fork covers, fly screen complete with stickers, outrigger exhaust, and original Ken Cobbing air horns canister and Ken Cobbing seat – all shared with the film's original. We are advised that the tyres are genuine 1970s items no longer fit for road use; thus the machine is sold for display purposes only and without an MoT certificate. Described as in 'perfect' condition, this iconic Lambretta scooter is offered with a V5C registration document and the aforementioned certificate of authenticity from 'The Quadrophenia Collection'.
