I think that's one of the DanMotors bikes.... Square headset with the late 60's / 70's speedo...

it was a bike built by SE Asia, FOR SE Asia, IIRC.

it means it is not original, just a crazy asia vespa? or just oem?

It's original to the bike, just not Italian origin.

It was made by a vespa licensee in asia.

Hey Jimmy, seanji is already my buddy no worries! He's the guy who hooked me up with the whole crew over here. His VS5 is pretty sweet and maybe the only one in Korea at the moment!

Thanks for looking out!

These were made by Piaggio. in Italy.


VBCs with these headset were made in italy and exported to UK, Indonesia, Singapore and Australia. They were not sold in the domestic Italian market and hence also not documented in the vespa tecnica.


Italian domestic market VBCs with the small headset stopped production around 76 and these export only VBCs were made starting from 75 to 79. They are also known as MK2 super. They came with 3 port cases and a 2 port jug. Also, px type crankshaft.
