I'm going back in time to the beginning of 2008 to tell this story I'll catch up to the present as I have time to write.
Well this all started at a party where I was talking to a scooterist at a party about Vespa stuff and he said he had these Sprint police bikes that he would sell me if I promised not to do anything other than restore them as Police bikes. He said they were from NYPD and originally came from a batch that Scooters Originali had.
I thought it sounded really cool and picked them up. I started with:
2 gas tanks
2 trashed original glove box cowls
1 original beat fender
1 broken original headset
I was actually under the understanding that I would receive enough parts for a complete scooter, as you can see from the list thats not the case. So with budget constraints and restoring my Rally 200 at the time made this project slow going from the start.
