Hi

Folks, thanks for letting me join the group.

I'm on the hunt for my first Vespa and looking for a T5 Classic. I've read of some of classics having PX engines replacing the T5 engines.

I'm off to look at one this weekend and just wanted to ask if the image attached is in fact a T5. I found a thread on how to identify a T5 engine earlier but can't find it again!

Thanks

Chris

Looks like it (correct cylinder cowl and flywheel), kickstart is wrong. Dead giveaway is the exhaust stub, held by two nuts on the cylinder…
