I have found my daughter, 3 year old, a vespa for Christmas. It appears to be a scaled down lx 50 for barbie. It's pink and has a top box. The strap that goes across the top of the seat doubles as a seat belt. Was this the original intent of this strap on my full size scooter? I have never fallen off but there has been some close calls. I'm impressed to see on the dash of the toy is the vepsa logo.

It isn't a top box, it's a pet carrier.

When I take my pets anywhere on a scooter I wear a helmet leaving space for under to seat for them to travel in.

Hey Ginch. Introduce some forced air into the stinger with a compressor and watch the show.

Make sure the pipe is red hot first.

If your scooter is going to fail to stay "rubber side down" and fall over and skid, being tied to the seat is the last thing you'd want.

I've seen that video too! Looks like fun... not sure how the neighbours would like it.

No. Driving a scooter while having your pet in a bag just shows you love them.

No driving your scooter with your neighbors pet in a bag shows how much you love there cat using your scooter seat as a scratching post. Them retrieving there pet from the pound and letting it roam the neighbor hood is just asking for it to be returned to the pound. I saw online there is a model vintage vespa. There is also a paper fold together one I thought was cool at papermau.

The strap that goes over the front seat is, I believe, nothing more that something for a passenger to hang onto if he or she doesn't want to hang on to the driver.

And it's not very good even for that purpose.

Sorta' like the kickstart. Razz emoticon
