New Vespa owner here (2014 GTV 300)
Purchased her a few weeks ago from a friend and Vespa enthusiast. Lots of after-market goodies, such as a bluetooth speaker system. My wife and I never thought we'd enjoy riding her around as much as we do.

nice!
those upgrades look amazing! one question - did you lose your glove compartment due to the speaker system you've installed? My speakers are attached to the handlebars, but I like your setup as well so long as you did not lose the compartment.

Happy riding!

I dint remove the front glove box. One hole on top inside was enough
to connect he power cable of the amp with the power switch.

Headlight on Fender
Beautiful bikes!. I'm thinking of buying one. They're gorgeous. How do you like the headlight on the front fender? I'd be worried that it might vibrate too mush and be annoying.

Hello clynch

I have not noticed any vibration in the headlight mounted on the front fender.

The 11 year old GTV posted above has a vibrating headlight! I'm pretty sure it didn't vibrate when I bought it couple years ago. At one point I swapped out the bulb- when that didn't fix it I had the Headlight Assembly replaced... Still vibrates. Then other non-headlight stuff broke and it became a low priority. But, now that the bike is running again perhaps I should address it.

Thing is, I've only ever seen this issue on this bike, and the guys @ the shop don't know exactly whats going on either. Hope that helps!

The GTV as a modern Faro Basso
We all know that the GTV design was inspired by the early Faro Basso (literal translation: low headlight) models of the late 1940's -

So here is an afternoon portrait of the low headlight - Faro Basso! - of Pazzo, my 2007 GTV -

Southern Oregon backroad
Finally at long last the smoke from the horrendous wildfires cleared up enough to take the GTV out for a little spin around the country roads and lanes where I live

Just cleaned the leather on my saddle and figured I'd post a few picks. Glad I had it reupholstered in black and the leg shield trim also done in black. Works well with the windscreen.

thread up!

my recent acquisition - Vespa GTV 250 2008 in navy blue
39000 kms

As usual after buying a "regularly serviced and well maintained scooter that needs no investment" I've already changed:
- drive belt and rollers
- oil and oil filter (drained no more than 300-400ml 😳)
- air filter
- clutch shaft bearing and front wheel bearing
- coolant
- speedo cable
- tightened the front fork
- cleaned the variator and clutch (needs replacement)
to do list:
- brake calipers cleaning
- brake fluid change
- clutch replacement
- valves adjustment

but all in all runs great and I'm very happy with it
