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.

Why the Vespa didn't run
I forgot to say why the clutch wasn't working. The actuator pad was the wrong one. It would not go flush with the hole. It was sticking out and would not recess. It clearly was not a VBB actuator.

So, I took it and machined it down until it fit correctly. Now it does recess and with a few adjustments to the cable, I am able to use my clutch just fine. Sure beats running to get the thing started without jerking into first gear!
