Vespa & Lambretta collectibles

Yesterday I found a copy of the Swedish cartoon magazine "Vilda Västern" (Wild West) from the mid-fifties.
Strangely enough they had a collectors series of motorcycles available on the Swedish market at the time. On every backside of the tiny magazine there was either a motorcycle or a scooter. Of course I looked for a Vespa or a Lambretta and came up with this Lambretta 125 F below. Just a black and white picture and some specifications like "123 cc, 4 hp and top speed 70 km/h".
The glass is from the classic Italian beverage maker Cinzano. It's from 2007 and obviously a homage to the vintage Vespa. Hrm, isn't there a bottle somewhere...
