Lambretta as kid's bicycle
This really cool children's bicycle was built by the french firm MFA in 1960. It's featured in a new book by bicycle collector Michael Embacher and photographer Bernard Angerer. The wittingly named book, "Cyclepedia: A Century of Iconic Bicycle Design", is published by Chronicle Books.
This little Lambretta has a gigantic "want"-factor. Note the little aeroplane on the front mudguard (an original Biemme!), the spare wheel and the ornamentation over the air intakes.
