Finally had our Rally 180 restored after 30 years of use.
Ridden not hidden so time and rust worm took their toll.
Now she's as good as new.

That takes me back! My third Vespa was an orange Rally180 just like that. Mine had 6 volt electrics and no battery. When the Rally200 electric came out, I converted mine. - piston, cylinder, head, carb, exhaust, and the result was the best running Vespa I have owned, beautiful power and handling, and a top speed of 120 kph.

I later converted it to 12 volt electrics, and added indicator lights, but that is another story.

Had that one for 10 years, and did 100 km on it. Then replaced it with a P200.

Ours is as it left the factory. 6V with battery. Standard piston, exhaust, carb etc...
Never wanted to change anything on it and never will.
