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.

We'll see what tomorrow holds...
My new electrical system has shipped. According to UPS it should arrive tomorrow (1/5). It would be great if I could put it in tomorrow evening. Friday is supposed to be a cold rainy day... even possibly snow. So, Thursday is my best chance since the Vespa is currently under the carport and not in the basement.

My only other fear is that I didn't get all the parts I needed and I'll be stuck with the bike partially upgraded while waiting for one small piece to arrive. I also wonder if I will get the correct instructions. Sometimes I have ordered things from and then I had to discover what to do with it. Surely, an UPGRADE kit would come with instructions.

We shall see...

I am following your blog with great interest. I too bought a vespa from Asia but I did it unknowingly. I bought it on ebay and can relate to "the hope sombody else is the high bidder" I am in love with it but there are so many problems, the body is beautiful just doesn't run consistently. very close to putting it on ebay. thank you for your story

skachris, I am tempted to just go ahead and purchase a new 150cc engine. Really, there is nothing about the scooter that can't be fixed. It is just a matter of how far you are willing to go. Don't give up yet!

I would be interested in hearing more about your story.

Me too one of those scooterworks LML engines
can very much relate to your
post, more of my story a little later, when I actually can figuire it out. best thing to do when frustration hits is just to walk away for a little while. thanks again
