The UK market was the only market where the Lambretta sales hit the Vespa sales easily. The main reason for that is the excellent strategy the Lambretta Concessionaires had for bringing the Lambretta into the market big style.
There had been some things that were unique on the Lambrettas for the UK market. To get a picture of the full story Stuart Owen’s book about the Concessionaires (SC item number 3332513) is the best reference point.
One of the things unique to the UK Lambrettas is the Pegasus seat. They were used on the Rallymasters, Series 2, TV 175 and GT (TV) 200 Lambrettas. There were different versions and specifications available during the production.
The bgm PRO Pegasus seat has the all important features that seperate a good Pegasus from a bad Pegasus copy, like a stamped metal base, high quality upholstery from foam and the brackets like they were did originally.
The base is painted in white. The seat cover fixed with rivets like it was originally on early versions. The seat strap is fixed like on TV 175 Series 1 and 2 Lambrettas.
The cherry on the cake is the oval Lambretta Pegasus rear badge.
