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.

These scoots don't come up short
Still waiting for the new parts to arrive. I hope they will come today. While I'm waiting, I'll share these pictures from reader Denny.

Here is how many scooters begin their new lives. Denny brings his 66 Super home for restoration in the back of his truck.

It can fly!

Here is another of his scoots - a 79 P125x with a Stella engine that has been kitted out to 177cc. If you think these pictures look professional, you should. Denny is a photographer.

Here's the last bike Denny is sending along. Notice the DPS on the cowling. I wonder if he writes the scooter off as advertising on his taxes! I also notice that this picture of his P200e was taken within 50 yards of my downtown office. I walk by this spot on my way to lunch.

Hey, Denny, I agree - "Awesome!"
