Oh wow.

This will be a challenge, too. The harness you have isn't wired for the four pole ignition switch on the headlight, it doesn't have indicators, and your switches are a different configuration.

What kind of indicators were you planning to use?

I think the closest one made is this German one. But it's a battery model.

https://www.scooter-center.com/en/wiring-loom-bgm-original-vespa-rally180-german-versions-with-battery-indicator-and-ignition-lock-sc5004?number=SC5004

It has the indicators on the headset, and the ignition switch.

The handle bar switches are different, though. It has the add-on turn signal on the left side, and yours has the two square switches.


The German version


Your American 1975


The switches on your handlebars.

I believe the harness you have has one switch that's high/low beam, horn, kill, and lights on/off.

I love Santa Rosa.

That's actually where I bought my Rally. It was some dude who was retired and used to own a vespa shop. But he left it outdoors for like 30 years.

The bar ends should be easy. The wires are right there by the switch.

I'm not sure what "Anti-theft device" means. It could be that key switch. But the keys on those don't even have teeth, so maybe not.

Welp threw in the towel on the electrical and brought the yellow wasp to a great Vespa guy in SF. After I get it back the fun will continue!

I never met him, but I follow in Instagram, and he does beautiful work.

He works on all these amazing bikes, that are local, but you never ever see.

It's this collector market that I didn't even know existed.

He had an amazing GS that was cream. He does great work and we talked for what seems like two hours about Vespa stuff. It was great and he does all his work from a retro fitted van. It's so organized! He used to be the mechanic at b….M…… but started his own thing. Let me know if you want to come with when I pick it up.

Today I took out the p200 for a test ride after a cruciform replacement. 26 miles to the skatepark in the woods. It rolled like a champ!
