Hi All,
My first post here, my Dad has a 1956 Vespa model 150 that he just had completely restored, with a model this old it's hard to find out what it's worth ? I've searched all over the internet, any ideas anyone ? He wants to sell it.

Thanks

Please put up pictures , many different levels of rebuild from aftermarket parts to paint . Many different things are put into consideration when putting value on a scoot.

As a starting point here's some good info on the bike:
http://scooterhelp.com/scooters/VL3T.150.html

And here's a buyers guide:

Some pictures would help greatly.

Wow

Thats pretty cool.

Who did the paint and rebuild.

Those things in "original" condition can fetch some coin.

Its nice that the speedo is old and the bars were not rechromed. Showes some 'realness' to it.

Any before and after pics.

The older vintage scooters while beautiful, are more for the
collector, than the daily rider. Prices vary widely depending
on which part of the country you live in. It's not the first scooter
that someone would buy, so you have to find the right buyer.

Vintage scooters seem to cost more to refurbish, than they
are worth to sell. If you are going to sell it, I would use Ebay
because you will get the biggest audience.

Maybe 4k-5k plus


Good luck.

He had a local shop that works on these types of scooters all the time do it, can't remember the name.
I know he spent about 6k for everything, had one guy say it could be worth close to 10k, but I think that's a bit too much.
