This Vespa 50 scooter, model 1967, was imported from Italy 30 years ago and lovingly restored using original spare parts. It presents itself in a timeless, fresh apple green and is a real feast for the eyes!
It is fully roadworthy, was always kept dry after its restoration in the late 1990s and not driven.
The original workshop documentation is available, as well as the Italian registration documents dating 16.09.1967.
A small wasp to hold dear, here and now in search of a new master or mistress. As a collector’s item, as a memento, daily delight or for special occasions. Even on a Vespa Club meeting you will cut a good figure with this one, that much’s for sure.
Who can imagine a piazza of any Italian city without a Vespa? Simply unthinkable! For almost 70 years, this cult motor scooter has been mobilising generations of young and young-at-heart people. And with regards to its appearance, it remained true to itself – countless modifications notwithstanding – to such an extent that is truly amazing.
Well over 16 million units of the small wasp have supposedly been built, in how far this includes the more or less similar license builds and replicas, can only be guessed. The vespa craze reached an early zenith in the 1950s, when Vespa-riding had become near-synonymous with a lifestyle, as can be seen in contemporary art, literature and film.
Isn’t it wonderful that this passion continues today and still there’s no end in sight?
