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.

Asking forgiveness...
It has been quite awhile since I last posted an update at There have been multiple reasons. I went for nearly a week without riding the bike at all because of sickness and weather. The last couple of weeks have also been very, very busy!

However, I think the main reason I have not posted is because I was feeling overwhelmed.

Sometimes you realize you have bit off more than you can chew and you have built up expectations - in yourself and others - about what you can actually accomplish in living your life. That is how things have gotten with my Vespa.

I went looking for help and found it... LOTS OF IT. The problem is that I was starting to get overwhelmed with all the advice and offers to help. I really wanted to take advantage of it all, but the time just hasn't been there. Rather than being a source of fun and expanding my horizons by meeting new people, and Heebie became vehicles of guilt!

So, to all the new friends I have made. Thanks so much for your help! It isn't that I don't appreciate it and don't want to continue being a part of the scooter community. It is just that I'm going to have to do it on my own time frame. I still want to get together with the Esso B's and I'm very interested in learning about how other folks' scooter projects are coming. I'm going to just have to take my time...
