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.

DR 177cc cylinder kit
Sito + exhaust
Six month warranty

Price: $1140.00

He is currently hospitalized and in a coma with multiple skull
