Hi all

I'm a few weeks into the scooter life. I originally purchased a Chinese scooter, but about a week later I had the opportunity to get a 2001 Vespa ET2. It had about 350 miles on it. I got it from a shop so they did all the necessary work, and I have a 60 days parts and labor warranty.

This is much much much different than my first scooter. I did actually like it, but come on, it may be old but it's a Vespa baby!

I couldn't find much about the ET2. This forum is easily the best info I could find.

2-stroke for the win!

Thank you sir! I have a 60 day parts and labor warranty from the shop I got it from. I'm going over everything. It's actually at the shop now getting a new fuel guage, a vapor lock issue, and I guess I'm paying to put led lights in the headlight.

Thank you kind sir. Your Vespa is quite bling as well. I'm thinking of putting a front folding rack on my old vespa. Class it up a bit.

Front Rack for Vespa
I really liked the look of both a front and back rack.

Another reasonable modification is a Seat Cover from "Cheeky Seat"s.
For around $100 you can change your seat look. It just covers
over your current seat (which preserves the original).

If you google this company - you can set all the seat covers.

I got the Black and White Checkered cover below:

Welcome. That is a clean ET2 and you have to love the 2 stroke these can be made to be a really fast 50 or 70cc scooter.
