So - I sold my Vespa because I moved out of the country for a little over a year. And when I realized Iíd be coming back, I contacted the buyer. In a year, they had only put 50 miles on it. So - I bought the same one again since they werenít really using it.

Itís a 70th anniversary with the matching helmets, so I really wanted to have it back - plus, it was a birthday present.

Just sharing - happy to be back in the family.

Thanks for all the great info here - - -

Great news!

FIFTY MILES? That's almost abusive.

Nice! I had a Buddy 125 that I sold a bought back twice. Not a Vespa by any means but I know how it feels to get an old friend back.

Glad you got it back, now to put some miles on.
I thought I might sell a scooter, something about having more than I have time to ride. Changed my mind, all it took was taking a ride.

Curious, How much did you wind up paying for putting it in storage ? Seems like you may have got yourself a deal
