Long time lurker, decided to register to present myself and my '63 VBB2T project.
I allready ride a modern Vespa (300 GTS Super Notte), but always wanted a vintage scoot.
Stumbled upon a local ad a few weeks ago and called the seller to ask him if I could come and see it (it was only a 20 min drive away).
When I arrived, the old man pulled a cover off the Vespa and tried kickstarting it, but it did not start.
"Damed, it started 6 monts ago!". The guy pulls out his toolbox and starts dismanteling the Vespa in the rain and freezing cold
It was obviously a gas arrival problem, so I asked him for his price and sealed the deal.
Few days later, and I picked it up.
Now.. What did I buy?
Here in Europe, 95% of the VBB's made a detour via SEA, but this one should be an exception (no bondoed welds, original square plate holder, no funny accessories, 8", ...).
Correct papers, correct Vin.
Very hard, no holes.
But someone completely messed it up by painting it with a brush
Below a few pics at the seller's place
