hi,
i've bought a 2001 y reg vespa et4 125, to be delivered next week, all for 50 so its a bit of a project, not got any pics yet.

nothing is missing apart from needing a battery and lots of tlc!!!!
its blue at moment and needs some panel work and paint so might change colour.

being delivered tomorrow, got a battery for it. from halfords of all places!!! the price was not far off from www prices once you add p&p.

cheers chris.

as in pics, has a new battery and front s/steel brake pipe.
needs body work on right side panel. plus tlc.
just not got the time to do it, too much going on.
plus need the space for when my car project returns in a couple of months time. if i had it on the road it could of lived else where.

Shame, would make a nice and easy bike to customise especially with a custom paintjob, what car is your project if you dont mind me asking ?

I am a massive VW fan
