I was perusing Craigslist and saw the scoot below in Wilmington, NC.
I don't know the owner but I sure love the little 1961 Vespa !!!
I'm NOT recommending anyone buy it, might be a scam but I doubt it, but again, I am NOT familiar with the scooter OR the owner, Seems legit but you NEVER know.

Two tone and lots of chrome points to Viet Bodge, but I know nothing of vintage.
Beware if looking at it.

I'm new to these little scooters. It's probably best that this thread get deleted so no one goes and tries to buy this. What's a Vietbodge?

There is nothing right about it, in fact, everything is wrong about it. Stay away!

I wasn't looking to buy it, I have no interest in owning another scooter, just thought it was cool and IF it would have been legit someone here might want it. I wish this thread would get deleted now.

Even the background of the photo looks like the same paving stones that are used in many parts of...ahem...Southeast Asia.
