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.

I guess it can handle my briefcase
One of the reasons I got a Vespa with a sidecar is so that I could carry more stuff. I also think it will be really cool to take my little kids for a spin around the neighborhood. I would feel better about them being in the sidecar instead of sitting on the passenger seat behind me.

Well, appears that people carry all kinds of things on the little bikes! I came across this picture today on the site le Monde en Scooters. Needless to say, if these guys can haul a satellite dish - I should be able to carry my briefcase!

I'm starting to get nervous. Today means it is seven days before the bike gets here. Of course, that is when I am told it will be here - it could be later than that. I plan to contact the shipping company tomorrow for an update. Another thing to make me nervous is I saw a negative feedback entry for my seller for the first time on eBay today. The buyer said that he bid on a '65 and got a '64. However, if you look at the auction page it plainly says a '64.

Guess I'll just have to wait annd see.
