Been lurking for a while, and finally following through on making a post
I've been into Vespa's and vintage scoots since my teens. Got my first stock P200 in '98 when I was 18, rode that thing everywhere for many years. Rebuilt it, restored it, tuned it, tweaked it, you know how it goes. Had a few other vespa projects along with other stuff through the years, but that was my first love. Finally had to let it go a few years back, and have been missing that 2stroke buzz ever since....
Now I'm a little older, a little greyer, and I like to think a little bit wiser; but thats debatable. I've recently aquired 2 new Vespa projects and feel that sweet buzz again! I've got a 3rd on hold, but that is a topic for another post. I'll be posting separate topics for each scoot, but wanted to give a quick overview here
First up, a 1958 Vespa VB1T. Socal bike, rust and rot free, bought from 2nd owner; collecting dust in a garage since '83. Missing some bits; but Gickspeed already hooked me up. So we are rolling slowly. I have a plan. Stay tuned
Next we have the 1981 Vespa 100 Sport. I hadn't planned for this one, but had to strike when the opportunity presented itself. Its a little rough, but mostly there. Told it was sitting for maybe 10 years, looks about right. Dont know much else.... this will be one for me and my 2 kids to bring back to life. She may even start with a lil gas and battery. Plan is formulating. Stay tuned...
Thanks for reading this long intro. Pictures below. Scoot safe!
