Turns over easy enuff, but w/ good compression & starts quick. The yellow is probably gotta go, so no more sunny side up.

This '68(? yet to be verified, but title says) Super 125, Script badge front & back, CEV real tuna can rear lite, Fresh LML 4 speed we still dunno how geared for 8", seller didn't know. But crappy yellow over original white, some wrinkles & bumps on looks solid body, no bondo though. Quality aftermarket seat. Motor runs great & very good power, but flattie on the front said I was done for now. 5xxx original miles.

Yellow lemon?
Wheels match too well & he was vague on the PRO conversion installation and we were looking at the scooter like this in a no parking zone in mid downtown, Guy lived in a large apt block, small comfy room w/ his BFF black cat. Anyway, nice guy & helped load as cops lurked nearby w/ free tickets to give.

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text


The paint is spray & some matching touch up mess, should come off easy, but the white under was painted for a reason. Who knows how bad. Or good!

A lot of nice details I liked, the motor has been used enough & regged in 2016, so somebody's barnfind w/ dead motor & made to run w/ PnP motor and a rattle can + brush maybe. A summer or two of swearing and done. My guy got it from SOME guy in '16 and didn't do motor and may have done paint. He did have a lot of woodworking tools in his small apartment and hands that still work often, Knew how to balance his corner when we loaded in mid downtown looking up at skyscrapers, it was so strange!

Pics of HumVee loading & unloading soon.

10" conversion, updated engine. Nice! Must've done something with the wiring harness too then eh? Have you aired up the tires and took it around your neighborhood yet?

And maybe that yellow paint was just put there to protect the original white... Razz emoticon

I hope the Portuges like white. This lemon turns out to be more egglike & the white is better than the yolk joke of a sloppy rattle can yellow spray job. Fortunately it comes off easily w/ acetone, which the original white is not affected by.

So many nice little discoveries on a solid lo mile bike.
I'm still happy it followed me home and I'm getting happier.

► very little rust

► the original white looks OKish so far

► Floor tim ALL there & in good shape

► The LML is really healthy, like new w/ just enough miles to relax

► Original wiring is all good & spliced in nicely, everything but horn works

► The tuna can is original CEV in in excellent condition

► All locks present & in good condition, just need to be keyed

► so original and so 'all there' under that LML & all the yellow

Here's where we sing "you'll wonder where the yellow went... la la la "
Just five minutes love rubs w/ acetone & the white original is unaffected.

Hey, hey, V oodoo. Looks like a Sunny day in the neighborhood all right! NICE pics of the whole downtown exchange. Who's that sartorial supernova in the camel hair coat?

Very nice looking scoot you got there. And yes, I'm a wee bit partial to that Super Duper styling. Vintage script that just states the obvious. "I'm Super. What else doyawanna know?"

Too bad the yellow paint is so sad up close. Cause it's real pretty from a distance. Happy, in fact.

But, separate the yolk from the white. Whip it up fast. Add a little sugar. And you get magical Merengue. Oooh, nice!

Show us that Merengue when you get there. I think a bit of whipping to still be done.....

Congrats on your new toy!

First - that camel hair coat is all you.
You should make that happen.

Second - There is no second.
It jumps out under acceleration.

Bike looks great.
Let that coat cover some of the paint.

Between ScooterHelp which says I have a 1966 Super 150

and https://www.vespa.name/vespa-model/vespa-125-super
whis says with *025087* or maybe *025037*it could be a 1968, or possibly a 1969, one of the last.

Opinions? It doesn't seem to have ever been a 150, but no motor to verify.

But yep, kept that coat and winter is coming, but I shall keep warm in style. 8)

And second works just fine!

I found that this CRC gasket remover works wonders. It softens up the yellow spray paint but doesn't do anything to the tough original white but shine it up nice. Still a lot of scoot to get the yellow off of. Just takes enough time.
the yellow paint sort of curdles and then wipes off fairly clean as the rag shows

Eggs, hash browns (extra crispy), and steak!

Fun story - when I went across the country on my bicycle (a loooonnnnggg time ago) I would stop at little mom and pop diners and get a double order of steak, eggs, and hash browns. Most times they'd bring me a plate of hash browns, and a plate with the eggs and steak, then a plate of toast. I must've looked like a starving man. Ha! Razz emoticon Now I'm hungry!
Two of these please!

Dept. of loverubs
Mealtime's over, kids, back to work. This time mostly acetone loverubs because I have a gallon and I want to save the spray on stuff for touch up and hard to get places. The acetone with a 2" paintbrush w/ a lot of scrubbing action and a wiping rag to follow , then a cleaner rag soaked in a little acetone to wipe it down works well on this old yellow paint.

So two silver linings here so far besides that I can even get this stuff off fairly well w/ some elbow grease. First the painter forgot to sand the surface before painting but seems to have cleaned it very well and second, the yellow probably protected the OG paint for some years, where it's not worn in a few spots or flaked back in small places it seems to be nice and deep and no serious damage areas either.

I expect to spot fog some matched paint on the biggest owies and a artist brush on the little patches on the floor. No need to make like it's brand new, I'm not either and we'll match nicely this way. Then I'll use an orbital polisher w/ mild buffing and cleaning creme then some old fashioned carnauba wax to finish. That's the plan anyway.

Oh, and also gonna convert the front to 10" for now, maybe for keeps. Be ready to roll serious before you know it w/ massive 5 port reed valved power on tap! Oh Ginchy, where are you ol' buddy. Mr. 10" Super?

Now you're talking! I hate cats and always will. They are nothing more than witches in small animal bodies. I will be glad to engage in any debate with a cat lover on why they should never be pets. 🥊 Sorry to stray off topic; just say'in.

Oh, and also gonna convert the front to 10" for now, maybe for keeps. Be ready to roll serious before you know it w/ massive 5 port reed valved power on tap! Oh Ginchy, where are you ol' buddy. Mr. 10" Super?
Noooooooo, Terry stop .... jeez, the paint looks great but what's this obsession with 10's? It ain't a Sprint, it ain't a Rally. It's a Super. Leave it on 8's like it's supposed to have. And what am I, chopped liver?

Well shucks, I tried to draft my post to sneak the idea past you kinda. My thoughts are to get this POS on the road soon and enjoy all that reliable and economical LML power on offer. I have an old 2 port 8" motor that I can sort out over winter but it's nowhere near ready to go now. After I try this baby on tens and fly down the road I'll have to see how I feel. I'd luv me a sweet 3 port motor geared for 8" and may consider adding a third port to the two port motor I have.

Guess I gotta PM Ginch to find out details for the ten inch conversion up front.
I have the parts I think, but never done it before and

I want it to be easily reversible to go all eights if/when I like,

to go back to properly stock for Mister unchopped liver Mike.
