Seems you didn't quite understand what the guy was trying to say...I also thought the same thing for a moment as his style of writing is confusing:

"so i have to disagree with you that PT. Dan Motors=Total junk, most vespas in indonesia is Dan motors product and they are still running great! works great! and they will running great! But I agree with you that this vietnam "restored" vespa is a total junk! thanks a lot! cheers for all scooterist all over the world!
p.s i have 2 Dan Motors vespas on my flickr you're welcome to see it if you want"

He DISAGREED with the statement that "Dan Motors=Total junk" and goes on to praise them. Hope that helps.

"Whell" LOL

dan motor is similar with acma in france and allstate in usa also douglas in UK and not forget to mention motovespa in spain

its were a factory that produce type of vespa under piaggio licensed, dan mtoor started to produce from 1976 (correct me if i am wrong) and stop producing in 2006 (now the factory became kawasaki heavy industry, what a shame) due the fact that most youth and other biker in indoensia prefer to ride moped (yaiks) or a automatic scooter rather then a real scooter with shifting gears

in the life time of dan motor productive years they have produce

super 150 (1976-1989) trap head (similar with the euro super 150 but diferent in the headlamp)



sprint v 150 (1976-1989) trap head (similar with euro sprint veloce with 3 port and 20-20 carb but diferent in trap headlight but some also have giant round head)





vespa ps 150 (1989-80's) i am not familiar with this model but i know it have super 150 engine inside but bigger crankshaft and diffirent gear ratio but still have 8" tyre and not using trail link suspesnsion like other p series and the frame were already build with p series (although in first year this model still have glovebox in the left cowl and no turn signal and no battery) the last year they come out with turn signal, battery and spare tyre were under the left cowl similar with px 150 but have a giant square head




px 150 (1989-1986) this type where similar with p 150 across the globe but instead of round head this type have square head, and the first model werent aquip with turn signal and still using point until early 80's when they have acquire this model with cdi and battery for the turn signal and horn, and since the frist year this type use 10' tyre





exsklusif I (1986-1991) similar with px but have a buddy seat and headlight also the front fender (T5 front fender)


exslusive II (1991-2006) similar with type 1 just diferent in engine (excel engine but no elestart)


excel (1989-2006) identical with T% but have a p series engine with elestart


corsa (i dont know this type) this is the automatic version of dan motor scooter, i dont know much about this



special 90 cc (80's) smallie with 3rd gears


special 100cc (80's) smallie with 4th gears




i am hoping nino will help me by mention some model that i forget to add


ps: indonesia isnt vietnam u'll know it when u saw a map

im with you. can you guys stop hating on indonesia and bodge-calling everything. these guys just wanna have a good time on their bikes, indonesians are cool people. there are other places in this world than america. i travel to indo all the time to surf and those guys really have a crazy vespa scene, so what if they're not made of money at least they know how to have fun with their scoots.

No one is hating Indo... I am living in PRC, China right now so your comment regarding America is off base. I was passing on the info I found on the web. No personal opinion here. Personally, I have no experience with DAN motors..

I agree.....however the first people to tell you not to be an Indo bike on this forum would be our Indo members....as they have in the past.

just sayin....

i dont see hate here, just love for a vespa and why i post cause someone ask about dan motor and i have 1 vespa made my them (the red excel) it will be a jerk of me if i know the answer but didnt share it

about why i said indonesia isnt vietnam cause somehow some people still confused about the fact vietnam brought a bad name to south east asia with their bodge and i want to make clarification that eventhough indonesia were in south east asia we have our own factory so our bike would be diferent from other place in SE asia

sorry if i made some statement that indicate hate, i was all love for u guys and girls that share the same interest with and that is the not so modern vespa

so cheeer everyone

Oh OK. Thankfully they look better now.

My last trip to JKT I had to be careful of the Waria due to my excessive drinking ("that's a mighty big clit you have there darlin' ")

yes the trap head for sprint were similar to danmotor sprint v or super (ur cowl box were supposed indicate that ur bike were sprint) but they dont have p series front glove box (someone add it for no good reason) and it seem something wrong with ur fork (kinna bent from pic) the seat were similar with me and its not the original seat for sprint in fact that where 80's p200 seat (similar with what i am currently using) for truth i think ur bike isnt in good shape (no offense but i dont see it quite happy) maybe u should strip it down and done total restoration to gave it back in shape

a reference for gave u more light

lol the story its my first vespa i have been wanting a vespa for some time now and have been searching what feels like the whole west cost looking for one i really wanted the super sport but throes very hard to find in this area

i found it on craigslist for 900 i knew that it needed work right off the bat and i knew with a bike that looked in not soo good shape it wasn't a bodge i purchased it about 3 weeks ago and it runs great my first order of business is to fix the front fork and get all new bearings then get all new gaskets and finally re pant it yellow or that blue color they came in

but all in all i love the hell out of it its cold as hell hear and i still ride it everywhere

first bike and u have a sprint, ur first story vespa was similar to me

about the sprint try to strip it down to metal and check for the tail section (some people tend to ruin that section with strong weld but lack of asthetic) assuming the head shape u have a sprint v with 3 port and 20-20 carb and while ur open the engine try to see wheter u have a large crankshaft or a small crankshaft if u have large ur sprint can run like a p series but if not its still a sprint v and one other think change that kickstart lever, it hurt my eyes as much it hurt my friend legs (not safety)

good luck with the project mate


ps: for my last word " dont buy vespa from indo "

euro sprint v normally have 3 port and 20-20 carb but small crank shaft.. but danmotor produce bigger crank shaft for their sprint v from 1977-1979 if u have the large crank shaft it mean u have a danmotor sprint v 3 port with large crank shaft (this crank were supposed to be in p series, not in sprint v but for some reason danmotor put it in their sprint v)

ps: if u do have larger crank shaft put performance bearing inside and tell me is it still slow

I dug these up on an Asian web site, some these scoots are cool and I would love to have a couple here in Cali just to blow some peoples minds.
Plus some the small frame accessories are really cool.

Those are cool as fock. Not completely clear if the listing is for one or a pair, but am thinking they mean one as they wrote "Comes as one piece"

The bit about "Pictures may look different" always bugs me. Nothing like buying mail order and receiving something different than what you thought you were going to get. Well, at least they're up front about it!
