In Seattle and in hella good condition for what it is. It is a bare 1979 frame, VIN * xxxxxxxx* with a few minor wrinkles in the lower left leggy. I also have random cowls, mudguard, horncast and various lights for it. I'd like to build it out but already have more than I can handle. I'll be happy to give you a Bill of Sale for $10 so you can title it thru either WA state's reasonable 3 year delay program or go thru Vermont if you're out of WA state. Must go to somebody who will build it out and not just flip it. Build it then flip it if you must.


This is part of the load of Vespa stuff I got from the estate of Doc Morgan who would love to see his stuff helping other scooterists far & wide. It was mostly nuts & bolts and cans of paint & lube plus a full set Vespa tools coming soon & available for local loan. But there's also FOUR autolube oil tanks, a front rack and a 26/26 carb looking for good homes, possibly a 20/20. Lemme know if you need a useable spare tire locally as well.

to be continued

Very generous offer Voodoo! I was just up in Seattle over Labor day weekend. I have had a itch to build up a street legal (and somewhat safe-ish?) P200 trike kart for a few years now. Just think, a low to the ground Vespa 3-wheeler cruising on I-5 North bound at 60mph...

You got a glove box in that color in decent shape? The glove box on my 80 p in same color is rusted all around the edges to the point that its chipped in most spots as seen on the right side in this photo.

That would be a fun build, but I'll probably go or a smallie next! Doohhh! I'm full of it tonight.

It's a mighty good thing you're doing Voodoo. Not easy having a friend pass, let alone helping with his stuff. The scooter community very much appreciates it. I just know I appreciate it. Keeping stuff from the getting dumped...

Well, something bad happened there, but it's solid w/ no cracks - just a bit of ugly for winner whodatschrome to hammer out.
26/26 carb's never been in a wreck far as I know though, in fact I know little about it.

I'm way too late for the 26/26.... yip, im gonna give a SI a go on Speedy... the PHBH28 will have to sit on the shelf for a bit, sadly... but after 5 or so years, I'm gonna take off the Boomstick & fit something from Ginchi.... if that don't work, then its a carb change.

Small doors suck, but ppl get used to them & the frame is stronger. Just pop the shock bolt, drop the motor a little to do the plug.

This frame is sound I believe, but this is somewhat ugly here

Voodoo, than you again for the P200 frame! I pressure washed the heck out of it after I drenched it with Purple Power engine cleaner. It痴 squeaky clean right now...just the way I like my scoots.

I have a vision of building a trike out of it. Before others get too worked up about me cutting up a common P frame, this one has enough damage so no need for concern there. That being said, this should be the perfect frame to experiment with.

I知 envisioning something like this...whether it comes to fruition or not remains to be seen. I知 not in a rush to start just yet. I知 still gathering ideas...structurally and aesthetically. I知 trying to decide if I was the front wheels to tilt (like a MP3), or go double A-arms like a standard kart. Which everone I decide to go with (and if I start and carry through the project), i will have front suspension as well. So far everything else is still up in the air while I知 still researching. When I get closer to starting the project, I値l start up a thread (and that痴 if I decide to follow through with my build idea).

I think it would be '64ish w/ the smaller engine door being the easiest way to tell. They also need a different tank, shorter than yours are.



I can get the VIN for you to confirm, but you're gonna spring for the postage again if you're "claiming" it. Or wait until some other Yank moves there again .have to

Good plan, somebody down under want one of them stoopid big carbs?

This old thing is nearly gone, easy enuff to hide a damn carby inside, no? Current gross weight is about 80 pounds, frame and crate.

YaY!


screw frame directly to base

make a plan to enclose it

LOL, looks like I gotta put it in a cardboard box after all because a wood one would need to be expensively fumigated on arrival or possibly destroyed at customs. UPS will make one to fit for only $140 and won't require fumigation I hope.

You still got that 26/26, Voodoo?

If so, it might be fun to play with on my Sprint motor, see if it makes a difference versus the 24/24 and venturi, even un-ported.

If so, PM me and I can paypal you something for it, shippy, and your troubles.

Oh, it gets BETTER!
I just learned the difference between an estimate and a firm quote. UPS advises that unless they have the actual object there they do not feel bound by a mere estimate for a double wall box of proper dimensions that said object will fit in. I should have just said "Fine, whip me up just such a box NOW, while we have your estimated cost fresh in mind." But, NO, I wanted my back covered by GT6mk3 guy, so no surprises for the unknown bargain $137 not firmly quoted.

So off to UPS with the frame, happily anticipating a sterile, fumigation nonrequiring carton and the end of this little puzzle. But then when they realized that it was an old VESPA frame which apparently requires additional unspecified measures, they now came up with $196 instead if they wanna make a buck or two after terrific expenses and overhead and all. But now a FIRM written quote, no mere estimate.

So now I considered what if THEY don't just box, but get it to Craig's door as well. maybe that box charge would sorta vanish in a bigger number for full deluxe service? I got that right, 'partnering' w/ DHL and right to your door Craig for $5,132.54, you will hardly notice the $196 tacked on, right?


But maybe I just get a half dozen of their stock 18" cube HEAVY DUTY DOUBLE WALL boxes and just Scotch tape them together???

Hmmmm... I wonder if two of those "bike boxes" properly grafted together w/ strong glued lap joints, then strapped would do a good job?

Maybe a rigid foam pad fit snug on the bottom, frame screwed to it w/ fender washers and the rest blocked in w/ left over foam pieces? Hmmmm.....

That UPS gives no $196 guarantees bothers me a little bit. Of course Craig can easily just SLEDGE HAMMER or HYDRAULIC PRESS it straight again, build a nice jig and all.

Stock motor and correct special wrench, it is only modestly difficult. Put a bigger motor in and you can just pull the shock bolt, like two minutes. You might have to loosen the carb as well, have not had to do it. Still not that hard!

Try testing various jets for MUCH more fun!

I've seen a shorter plug suggested as making it a bit easier for the bigger motors, do you think it would in your experience?

Before packing, put a lot of padding and tape around the horn cover and that area in the box. I had a scooter shipped and that was the only part bent to crap. The box was right side up but when they cubed the container during loading, boxes are pushed up tight against each other and bent the cover. Once it gets there, should save some time reshaping it back so a horn can fit in it.

Agreed!



About six layers of bubble wrap was between the horncast and this front bulkhead with similar in back w/ frame screwed to the deck.

Anybody wanna smallie shipping crate DEAD cheap coz probably infected with the bubonic plague, anthrax or worse, coronavirus more likely?
