I know right? I have no more room for even a box let a lone a scooter. My wife made ultimatum. I have to get rid of a scooter in order to get another one. But all of my 8 scoots are keeper.

Look like it's using a VBB or a VBC frame.

Talk about adding insult to injury.

Well, hey if you're going to try to rip someone off, you might as well swing for the fence.

Really. It looks like the new owner found out what he is getting and trying to get rid of it.

Seller is lying through his teeth. There is no US dealer selling this junk and it was not restored in the US.

It has everything of a bodge.

Too many bodges on eBay UK...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/b/Vespa-150/9936/bn_7023596958

This one is supposedly a Vespa Douglas but it screams Nammer. Problem is that they've started to get better so the "untrained" victim, will fall for...
