Bodge?
https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/mcy/d/1965-vespa-vbb-150/6727014665.html

"1965 VESPA VBB 150

BORED OUT TO 160. I JUST GOT IT A FEW MONTHS AGO. THE PERSON BEFORE ME RODE IT LESS THAN 150 MILE AFTER A COMPLETE REBUILD. GREAT CONDITION, STARTS FIRST OR SECOND KICK, GEARS SHIFT EASILY, BRAKES WORK GREAT. THERE'S SOME PAINT SCUFFS, TRIM'S A BIT DULL. KILL SWITCH DOESN'T ALWAYS WORK SO I DROP IT IN GEAR TO TURN IT OFF AND THE PETCOCK HANDLE IS BROKE SO IT'S IN THE ON POSITION. CLEAN TITLE, REGISTERED UNTIL NEXT YEAR. AWESOME COMMUTER, BEACH CRUISER. $3000

MUST SELL SOON."

No, they are claimed to be "erra correct". This means that they are correct for an early 2000's import from Viet Nam with all the typical errors or 'erras' if you're from Boston. These definitely meet the test.

Are you sure they aren't legitimate and just missing their titles?

You have to make your jokes more explicit for me, because I'm from Texas, home of those famous last words, "Hey! Hold my beer and watch THIS!"

Texas?

Is that a suburb of Evanston, or the other way around?

I'll borrow another expression, one I learned after I moved from Texas up to Chicago, "Illinois is a suburb of Chicago."

You from Texas originally, or just a stop in the road?

Texas born and raised, but wound up in Chicago a few years after I got out of school. My family all still live there and think I'm crazy for living up here.

Question - How can large numbers of Viet bodges be legally imported to the US?
Surely these folks are breaking some sort of rules/laws? Interesting.

Yes the ones in the link are in the UK but we constantly see bodges in the US too. I can't believe they are being brought in one by one. The money would be in bringing them in a container at a time. Either way, I would think there are some sort of laws regarding importing them to the US at all?

I doubt there is any regulation. I was able to import 2 as personal from Italy. Business people probably can do a bunch at once.

According to my friend who talked to the seller, Vin on frame was read as VLB1TXXXX. Seller refused to send pic of engine VIN.

In addition to that, wheel hub chrome, fuel cap chrome and famous Piaggio license plate frame, chrome legshield logo frame. High chance this is a fake SS.

What are you talking about? most of these high price bodges are looking much shinier than most of our scoots here. All my scoots have dusty original paint.

Why? 25 years old or older and you can import it. It is all legal.
