Not my Vespa, not the OP

NSM might be interested in this. Looks like a mid to late '70s Rally 200.

Interestingly, the reg isnt recognised by the DVLA online tools. So thats either been off the road for a very long time, or something odd going on with the reg.

Edit, its a U not an O. Ignore me

Remember that guy who fended off a stabbing suspect with a narwhal tusk? The bravest badass move ever.

Only question mark is the legality of taking ownership. You'll have to request a new V5, which I think notifies the original owner?

Looks like it's been parked up somewhere dry for the winter, but does leaving a vehicle in a wrong parking spot really mean you lose the right to said vehicle under U.K. law?!

Edit; Also another theory. Thieves often steal a scooter, and then dump it somewhere else for awhile to see if it's found / returned. If someone has had this scooter stolen, then they won't be there to read the notices - but it's obviously still theirs.
