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.

No lights -- well there is one...
I got home from work today and watched the kids put on a circus in the back yard. I tried to pay attention but my mind kept going to the Vespa. Work went about an hour later than normal and there wasn't going to be much more light.

The headset is back on. All the wires are connected according to the diagram. Alas, the only light that lights up is the pilot light. Oh yeah, the horn works as well. It could be that I need to make sure all my bulbs are good. However, the feeling I'm getting is that something is not connected correctly.

Hopefully, I'll have some time to work on it tomorrow morning. Here's hopin'

If you don't already have one, a cheap voltmeter is really helpful in troubleshooting electrical connections. Radio Shack has one for something like $15. The light switch is often the culprit in a bad connection - double check each wire on the switch.
