Hello.

I am new to this forum. I have a 2008 Vespa Granturismo, and a 2005 Vespa PX150. I live near Philadelphia, PA.

I also joined scootercentral.com which helped a lot with DIY maintenance on the PX.

see: http://www.scootercentral.net/forums/index.php

Hope everyone has a great holiday!

Welcome to the forum, sounds as if you have 2 really nice scoots. Throw a several photos of your scoots up if you get a moment.

Having trouble uploading. It's a midnight blue GT200L, with the top case and a windshield. The PX150 is black with extra chrome parts.

Welcome, fullthrottle, to ModernVespa.com. Post pics of your Granturismo, PX. Sounds like they have a good home.

This is one of the relatively few web forums with truly redeeming value, a combined result of many wide-bandwidth members, and diligent monitors.
Here, you have instant friends, along with counsel, comfort, quirks, consolation, and comedy.

I just replaced the transmission parts at 10k miles on the GT200L with a Malossi Kevlar belt and Dr. Pulley slliders instead of the stock rollers. Runs great. More midrange power and top speed. I also found a station close by that has 100 octane racing fuel. I tried a tank of it, and buried the speedometer needle past the maximum 90 m.p.h.

2005 Stella runs perfectly. I've done all the maintenance myself, but I really haven't had to do much. Up-jetted carburetor make this one fast scooter.

Here's a link to the craigslist ad:

I might forget. In case I do, keep checking craigslist under motorcycles. Search for "Stella".

Hello PA and Malta from Cape Cod, MA. Beautiful pics of your sweet rides!

I'm fairly new myself, here, on my 2009 lx150, bought off Craig's List almost a year ago, now. And all alone (so far!) in my scootering down here. I'm so glad I found this site and this forum. A wealth of info and nice to be able to tap into the camaraderie here. Such a neat and diverse group!

Looking forward to reading and sharing our Vespadventures!
