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.

A Vespa gets some TLC
Here are some pictures from Trace in New York. These are neat because they show a good example of "before and after." The first picture is of a 1966 VBB that Trace's dad bought new while in the Congo. It sat on a porch for fifteen years before Trace got a hold of it.

When he did rescue it from the porch, this is what he did with it...


I'll put up a couple more pics from Trace a little later. Remember, if you have some pictures of your favorite scooter - and better yet, a story about your experiences with that bike - I'd love to feature them here. Just email me.

WOW! That is an awesome transformation. I would love an old Vespa restored to that condition!

My Orange bomber has a second lease on life now that she has new gears. However, the PX just doesn't have the classic stylings of the earlier 125 and 150 cc bikes!

Well done! She should make you proud!
