Homage to the Vespa Grimestead Hurricane SS200

The SS 180 was already a fast scooter for its day, but when Eddy Grimstead, fitted a 64 mm piston, larger main jets and custom body work, it meant that you could not only blow everyone away when you stopped at a set of lights on Bethnal Green Road East London, but also when you wheelied away with your sunny’s flying off your head. This fast and beautiful SS pays homage to such glory days. She was imported into Australia 5 years ago from the USA and has been lovingly cared and meticulously rebuilt and maintained by SS Scooter.
