Ha ha...I used to 'dislike' the square headlight, as I wanted a vintage Vespa and thus 'must' have a round light.

But now, I think it makes the 50 more 'Special'...
It is a nice couple to see it beside my Sprint V. (with round and not trapeziod headlight )

I am not fully used to the plastic square horn cover...luckily this is blackish on the first series, so it combines well with the saddle and tyre color.

Re-fitted the luggage racks after years of absence...just thought it would give a more vintage look

Cool vespas! For us, spaniards, a Vespino is this. Over one million came out from Motovespa factory from 1968 til 2000.

Indeed, we had similar 'Vespa' branded Piaggio mopeds, named 'Vespa Ciao' and 'Piaggio Boxer'
