    Default My vintage Vespa

    Basically became a custodian of this little Vespa as my friend left to Canada and she needed a good home.

    If you don't cherish it and look after it, I'm coming to fetch it.

    On a separate matter, what is your current address?

    Beautiful! What year model is she, the body looks 60's but the tail light from the second generation? The paint work look new also? My dad had a P150X from the late 70's, the one with the separate driver and passenger seats, with the petrol cap between the them. I remember as a school boy I used to borrow it some nights and enjoyed the streets :-)

    Her history is a bit unclear.

    So she's had the 150cc replaced with a 200cc
    It was stolen and recovered in the 90s.
    A few layers of paint suggest we've gone blue to cream to red.

    There are a few mods I'm not sure of - but I'm sure she's 70s era.

    Any advice welcome!
