Hi MV!

Since a long time i'm the owner of this one. (my first vespa)
During long time i was never knowledge it's a 90 Racer. I bought it thinking it was a 50, big surprise for me when I discovered the reality!
well, the negatif point is... I dont have the original engine, but now it is a run engine with polini 135cc, PM Tuning exhaust, carburatore 24 and all part to rule with good condition!
It had a complete restoration, I let you watch the pictures.

Beautiful scoot... I'm curious, what makes it a "90 Racer"?

Thank you very much. I know, not really different than a standard scoot, just the VIN number, the handlebar and the fork like 125prim.
After, I don't have.. But normally it have the similar engine than the 90SS with diffirent number (90SS2M) and the same exhaust in black.
I hope that help you, if anyone have further information.. Thanks

Nice looking scooter. So, it has a 90SS engine? Or is this a euro v90 that you kitted to make it a "Racer". I'm confused too. Although it looks cool. It's a little weird the front wheel is white and the back black.

Hi dear,
Now it’s an 125pk engin with 133polini cylinder. I don’t have the original engine, but normally it’s the same than 90SS (end production I think).
Yes I know concerning the color of the front wheel, at the first time all wheels was white but when I changed the engin, I changed the back black wheel, i will to change the white for a black one soon!

Well, this is way cooler than the 90cc scooters we got in the US. Ours had a battery door, blinkers, one less gear and a pathetic box exhaust.
