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.

Here is another comment I received:
What about the South Carolina registration required for all motor vehicles with > 50 cc engines?
This is true. Any two wheeled vehicle with an engine over 50cc must be registered. I purchased the scooter knowing that it was going to mean treating it like a car... insurance, title, registration, TAXES...

I have all the paperwork necessary to go forward with the registration. However, I don't plan to do so until I get the thing running. No use paying the fees when I can't even enjoy it! My plan is to get the thing running before I leave to go on vacation. When I get back I will finalize the paperwork and get my plate.

The final stage at that point will be to get the "quick release" mechanism designed and built before spring. When spring gets here, I can then start really enjoying the little scoot!

Thanks to the annonymous commenter for attempting to be my conscience. Don't worry, I'm a step ahead of you.
