Would anyone know of any books on the history of Vespa and derivatives in the USA.
Piaggos own models, Sears Allstate and Cushman, I think. There may be more.
Over in England the main Vespa history books, 2of them, are concerned mainly with Italian activities. Only very minor info. concerning other licenced producers.
Thanks, Andy.

I'm not aware of any books but others may. Normally we just use this site for details of vintage Vespa models in the USA: http://www.scooterlounge.com/vespa/buyers-guide/index.shtml.

A book or a site with all the information would be nice as I haven't found one either.

They're super expensive but I'm a big fan of the Vespa Tecnica series...I have the volume covering my own scooter but I believe there are six in total. Typically $75 or so each.

It's very helpful for me. I adore The Dwarves series by Markus Heitz. Recently, I had a situation where I had to prepare for an exam and write several written assignments at the same time. At https://writix.com/write-my-essay I found qualified help in writing my research, so I was able to calmly prepare for the exam.
