Hi, all:

I'm new to the Vespa idea but can hardly wait to purchase one. I live in Lubbock, Tx. and there doesn't seem to be a lot of available rides for sale. I appreciate any leads/ideas on buying one...I'm leaning towards a 250 or 300.

Thanks for the feedback. See you on the road?

You have AF1 down there in Texas. http://vespaaustin.com/

They have two places one in Austin, and one in New Braunfels. Both of which are a bit of a haul for you but they ship as well IIRC. I'd say give them a call and check it out. Besides as they say always good to support local business, keep your tax dollars working in your state for you.

I just ordered one (today) from Albuquerque Scooters, at a great price, plus only $200 to ship to El Paso. abqscoot.com Nice sales people to work with. (We don't have an authorized dealer here either.) Nick helped me out if you talk to them...

look for vespa
Thanks for all the input. Any locals here in Lubbock know of a "club" listing here in town? I would like to buy used...I think. I understand Lubbock has a good size membership. Thanks!

If you put a search in for Vespa for sale, TX, you'll find a lot of options out there, used and new all over the state.

AF1 is where my first scooter came from, good folks. Got my 200 from an ad right here on MV. Also got a 300 super (yes, I'm a scooter slut, fickled and can't resist a shiny scooter) from San Antonio - The Motorcycle Shop, also great people.

Thanks to all. I was hoping a few Lubbock folks that ride would know of a couple of Vespas for sale could be had locally. I'll travel if I need to.

Got a new GTV 300 from Mancuso Motorsports in Houston (Todd Coleman, sales) last week. Shipping to me cost $415.

Thanks for all of the tips! I have looked faithfully at craigslist and related sites everyday. Lubbock just doesn't have as much to offer where vespas are concerned. I'm from the west coast so I know I'm spoiled. I'll look here everyday and see what good ideas continue to pop up; maybe get lucky and a seller checks in, too.
