This is the story of my '64 Vespa 150 - how it became mine and how it has given me a new vespatude.  I'll be recording the neat places I visit, the different things I do to make the Vespa my own, and - oh yeah - those reactions I get from both friends and strangers.

Almost on the boat
I had hoped that the Vespa would be on the boat by now. Turns out there were some delays and the bike didn't get trucked out until last Friday. Today Bram sent me a picture of the scooter being packed into its box for shipping. Looks like I'll be able to drive it right out the box!

Here is the truck driving away to take the bike to the port. Now it will just be a matter of waiting...


Hey... I stumbled onto your website through an e-bay link warning about Indonesian vespas. : )

I grew up there, so this blog has me happily tripping down memory lane. I think Vespas are the primary form of transportation over there... surprised to hear that there is a business restoring them & shipping them State-side.

Anyway, I was curious what was in the wicker basket carefully tied up in the left front corner of your box...

Good luck with the restoration!
