Famous Knightsbridge auction house Bonhams is hosting the sale on November the 25th, and have placed an estimate of £20,000-25,000 on it. The character ‘Jimmy’ rode this scooter throughout the early parts of the 1979 film, and it was an integral part of the story development (based on The Who‘s 1972 concept album of the same name). After filming the scooter ended up in the Portsmouth area, where the current owner has kept the ‘KRU 251F’ bike ever since (when not using it for various promotional activities).

The most famous Lambretta in the world could be yours very soon. See the sales page on the Bonhams website here for details of how to bid on this unique item.
