All the badges shown here are lapel badges, much smaller than the ones we used to bolt on the front of our scoots.

This first lot are badges for southern African clubs, as stuck to the front of my GT. They represent the clubs of Johannesburg, Cape Town, Salisbury, Port Elizabeth and Durban.

This next group are the badges for Europe, Britain and Italy.

And another shot of my beautiful GT200, just for the hell of it!

Wish I could get a full size Vespa Club of Europe badge to put on my scoot.

Can't help with that one Mike.


The Italian ones are still available though. Picked one up on my visit to Pontadera earlier this year.

Had already gone when I looked at it. I haven't seen an original, only the lapel badge, but this stainless steel one looks like a modern replica. Still, it does look nice.

Is mine then a rare antique version? Worth a fortune? Hope so, because I have a spare one!!

Anyway, thanks for he offer. Gratefully accepted. Would you like my spare one in exchange?

Not sure what to do with the smaller Europe, Britain and Italy badges. Had them mounted on the handlebars of my PX, but they don't look right on the handlebars of the GT. Maybe on the glovebox door?
