Thanks for posting that cbolling. HOT!!!
My new ride:
2009 with 65 miles after the ride to my brother's house where she waits for me to find a residence with garage in two weeks.
~. is mine.. 1952 allstate baby..
Here is a pic My wifes reflex. We call it hers but i ride it. I jist finished up running a 12v cig plug to the handlebars and mounted up a iphone mount. Last night i made the brackets that raise up the drivers backrest. The top box is a bestem 929 and i made up a mount for it. It worked out good because the factory sport lower back support is still functional plus the passenger can lean back just a tad and lean on the back pad on the top box. Oh i put on the tusk mittens for the 28 degree rise today. Oh the black foam pieces on the fairings are from my wife. She didnt want to scratch it if she fell over.
A before and after of a Cushman I did for my Dad back in 1995
Now this is just part of his scooter herd...Dad will be 80 this year.
big fun on fern st. wichita~
This one just arrived at my house and I managed to ride it five kilometers before coming to work. It's an odd fish that ended up in Minneapolis probably from Canada as it has a kph speedometer but the gas sticker on the filler is in English. It has no battery, an on/off/parking switch for the lights, no kill switch and is pre-mix fueled as in 1979 the P series Vespas only offered an oil pump as an option. This machine is simplicity itself which was what I wanted.
If I can run it at sixty miles per hour after run in is complete I will be happy. It has a new barrel and piston from Green Tree Scooters in Iowa and a Sito plus exhaust but is otherwise bog standard (including the wooden front drum brake). It vibrates like a dildo as well which is another reminder of how technology has moved on....I hope I can make this my daily rider as I live 27 miles from work and need to keep the speeding tickets at bay as they are too easy to collect on my modern Bonneville.Oh and the Bonneville doesn't carry a spare wheel!
You may learn to love that spare wheel.
...currently on the local CL (not mine)...
Glad you got it down to FL! It looks really nice. Strange that it a premix model; I really like having the oil tank on mine. Hope it works out great as your commuter.

Thanks dabears. It came by flatbed but that was okay. I am finding the engine seems a little strangled with a lot of help on Modern Vespa I am working up to rejet it and get the engine running smoothly.
Wiring seems ghastly so I'd like to have that redone professionally at some point, but the lights work most of the time.
I am enjoying bringing this machine up to daily rider capability.
Its as much fu to ride an old Vespa two stroke as I remember.
Big Torch Key.
Nice shot, this pic will always bring a smile. Good Times...
