re 125 t.s. motor

Same engine casing as a P125? Assuming since it's a rally frame you can put a 150 or 200 engine into it?
Likely some minor differences, it still has points IIRC. And you can put any 150 motor, a Rally 180 or 200 or any P motor in any largeframe if you want. The wiring and if you want autolube are solvable issues, I can't really think of more. A P200 motor dropped easily right into my Sprint and Rally 180 motor into a '58 VBA. Whodatschrome will drop a 200 into anything with two wheels.

West coast lurkers looking for a project? If you are a bottom feeder, it might be time to pounce if you like cheep!



Most of a scooter for $200? Even 3 port cases, WCGW?

Fresh on ScootNet today, out of Long Beach and willing to deliver in some of CA.

i saw this and was all: hmmmm....

but i need another project like i need a hole in the head.

if you had a crashed bike and you could swap everything over? or maybe a giant pile of parts, sure, why not.

the cases are worth that, and then sell everything else off. cut up the frame and throw that out.

Well... if you want a fairly complete P2 or a 150 we can talk... or if you just need bits, Iím down to deal metal either way!

This is priced way too high at $6k (probate sale 😥) but has all the original accessories that people took off as soon as they bought these bikes secondhand.

My P200 had that windscreen, a vinyl bra, luggage box, and that Spaam seat. OFF.

I couldn't give that stuff away, much less put a $6k Price tag on it.
But, times change I suppose. With tractor lights and US fuel taps getting $$$$$$$

Here's a few more.

I threw away a few of these. It's kind of amazing to see all the Vespa of America accessories.

I doubt it will sell for anywhere near that. It's some estate liquidator who thinks they've stumbled on a goldmine.

Must have been an Aurora cycle package
Mine also had the OG Aurora cycle plate frame. They must have had a "Highway" package with the P200s in the day. It's got a red "55" on the speedo so, you need a box to go with that I-5 asphalt burn.

Yeah its a 3.5 hr drive for me. Just enough where I'm like.. is it worth it for a Bajaj that I don't really need? If it were a true Vespa I'd be driving right now.

Yeah I've talked to the guy from that ad. It's posted in ny craigslist but is actually new bedford ma out near cape cod. I'm actually from new bedford area and have family out there so i was considering going to pick that up cause it looks like it's complete with the addition of a second incomplete engine. But greasy talked me out of it saying it wasn't worth the asking price! Plus i don't need a third red vespa when i absolutely hate red!

Absolutely pristine, with 41 original miles, it looks like. Just covered in dust.

The upholstery is perfect, the paint is glossy, and and no visible damage at all.
