This is a 1963 Vespa. 150cc, 4 speed hand clutch, kick start. 1 side view mirror, with a rear rack and also a tow hitch rack ($500 value). It has front hand brake and a rear foot brake. I have Spare tire included. Needs a little "tinkering" with Carburetor to maximize performance but does run great.
I am including touch up paint, some tools and a vespa manual. I imported this from Vietnam. It is beautiful, but we live in a big city that doesn't allow for the enjoyment of scooter riding!!!! It is are titled already, which saves you so much time and paperwork and money from importing yourself. No dealing with customs, shipping companies or customs brokers! Serious inquiries only, please.
I reserve the right to sell it locally. I do not want to ship, but if you can find a shipping to company to crate it and will pay all packing and shipping fees I will consider. I have great feedback. Please email me with any questions you may have. For sale on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1963-Vintage-Vespa-Scooter-150cc-/231025803052?forcev4exp=true#v4-41

A scene from The Who's "Quadrophinia." Another brilliant score by guitarist and lyricist Pete Townsend about the mod subculture, in which Vespa and Lambretta scooters were the right of passage.

This is a photo story of my father's 1958 BMW R50. Boy meets girl, gets married, buys motorcycle. Rides it for 60,000 miles and has accident when wife is pregnant with 3rd child. (me) Wife orders motorcycle to be taken off road until all her children are grown and on their own. One day when bike is moved to a different storage location, son sits on bike and dreams of being a Jedi Master like his father. Couple grows old together and bike is not ridden for 40 years. Husband is now a grandfather of 7 and married for 50 years, when he dies of a stroke at age 71.
Son looks over the old rotting machine and finds note attached to it from his father to him. Son decides to restore the old 1958 BMW R-50 as a tribute to his father. With the help of many friends, especially Peter Nettesheim, world renowned BMW collector, bike is restored to look even better than it did when it was built in Germany.
