Looks like Indian or Pakistani resto. Seats are definitely SEA, speedo don't look right and looks like there are areas with cracking bondo…

nice bike but you're committing to an engine split to fix the primaries, and the electrical sounds like you need to start over. probably fair-ish in price but maybe not DoD. however, that's the fun of the thread.
Yes yes I couldn't agree more with the last part of the quote. I am pretty new to Vespa's and scooters in general but a long time motorhead trying to learn values and this really is fun to be able to see something you are wondering about and get opinions of others on the value.

Judging from the two responses $1,500 might be a good deal but possibly even that too much.

Did you ever sell the 125 or is that still available? That bike really did seem like a deal considering how well sorted it was and when you consider what went onto that as far as time and labor it does make the VBB seem way overpriced.

Yeah, that's a re-post from an older listing that expired/was deleted.
$6500. It's a beauty.

This came up in my neck of the woods, which is quite unusual. Not a steal, but looks like a nice clean 200.

Has the front mudguard been trimmed, is it jacked up? It looks unusual.

Egads Sir, I believe you are right! For that kind of money I'd forgive that, but now I wonder what else might have been 'improved'? And I do like to know what's under the bra before I commit!

I'd bet the bra's been there since new from the dealer 12,000 miles ago. Notice that the dealer also sold the new owner a deluxe BBQ rack w/ padded backrest, and a heavy duty floormat! I'd hope it's not been down or in a collision, and therefore the hidden leggy is still pretty much virginal. If so I'd say candidate for Deal of the Year at the $1000 asked despite the extra cool Facepalm emoticon custom mudguard.

I covet that rear rack. There's an immaculate one on eBay right now, but with its price, shipping, and import fee, it would cost me about $750.00 , so that's a no go.

I'd go $1000 if it runs. Look at the paint, red cowl and fender are a different color or have been cleaned up and the rest hasn't. Makes me think that bra is covering up some.sagging bits.

P200. No price, make an offer, but it's a definite time capsule like the lister says.

I saw that on the 4th. I was up in the Olympia area for the annual Tumwater 4th of july parade, and then saw the craigslist posting once i got back home to oregon. For a $100 i would have gladly drove another hour North of olympia to pick the herd of them up!

Here are a couple of nice, titled bikes.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/836816927799734/

Hello everyone - I have two vintage vespa scooters (1962, 1965) titled in my name. $1800 each. Both were parked running many years ago and the blue one I had running last year just for kicks. Both turn no issues. Outright sale or prefer trade for high end, late model hobie ProAngler fishing kayak and trailer. For those considering coming from out-of-state. PA is a notary state where transfer is required, so you will have to be here when notary transfer is possible. Title transfer at buyer's expense. Please feel free to ask questions. Happy to help where I can.

8:16am Thanks for the messages to far!! I've been asked so here goes - if you take both of them, I'll cut $400 so $3200 - that's about as low as I'll go though before they head to auction. Sorry, no international container shipping.
