Do we want to add PX info to this page? Just the basics like gear oil and cable changes, etc.

Sure, if we've got the content.

I don't actually consider PXs to be modern Vespas, but information about them is welcome in the same way that vintage content is welcome.

Yeah, I don't either. However, many people bought them brand new as recently as a year or two ago, and may not immediately consider them "vintage". I mean, they're not modern technology by any means, but they were marketed throughout most of the modern era.

Agreed on all counts.

We could also have a Maintenance Procedures By Model article. It would lead to the same content, but through a different hierarchy. I think this will be a common theme, actually -- organization via several different taxonomical structures.

Well I think for simplicity's sake, I like all the content on the one page. Perhaps we should group it by model, but nesting the links could get tedious to maintain.

In trying to guess the thinking patterns of the people who are coming to look for information, there are (at least) two types: those who have, first and foremost, the task in mind, and those who have the model in mind. The goal, I guess, is to try to anticipate that thought process and provide for both directions.
