Our latest rebuild is about to hit the road ready for spring.
 This Vespa has been given a new lease of life.  It’s owner rides it almost 5000km annually.

Vespa GS 160 MK 1

This GS 160 MK 1 is  now a world traveller, and in 50 years she is has done a full circle of the globe.
She is was originally imported from the USA (non-battery model GS160)
and brought to Sandy at S.S Scooter in need of a full restoration a year ago.
But now she is heading back with her owner “Obie” to the UK to reside with his formidable collection of Lambretta’s.
Unfortunately, the hard-core Lambretta collector will not have time to be ribbed by his Lambretta riding mates in Oz
about his latest and  gorgeous  addition to his vintage stable. But I am sure I know a few boys in Blighty that will.
Farewell Graham O’brien you will be sorely missed. Safe travels and GodSpeed.

 

Vespa PX 215cc

From a Bondi Beach Bather to PX Street Burner.

Living it’s entire life by Bondi Beach without wearing any protection, this PX was suffering from an extreme case of cancer. With a rusted through frame it was time for me

to overhaul and save this Bondi Beach Bather.

The first job was weld in a new floor to re- strengthen this Vespa’s monocoque chassis .

Once the new floor was painstakingly welded into position, it was time to bring to fruition the tuning and customising concepts the customer dreamed of; from an enormous rear wide tyre conversion, to the 215 cc cylinder which was given the SS treatment flowing through a the stainless expansion pipe hanging off to the left, right down to the subtle CNC calliper to help her stop, are to name a few.

With a luscious coat of gun metal grey, this Vespa has been reborn; and she won’t be lazily sitting around Bondi Beach anymore, as she will be leaving our shores to burn up the winding roads of New Zealand.

VESPA VN2T

Like most Australian imported Vespas and Lambrettas we find a huge discrepancy in our models compared to their Italian mothers.

This Vespa, with its frame number VN2T should be a Faro Basso model (low light or lamp down). In other words, the headlight is mounted on the mudguard, and should also have a 125cc powered cylinder.

But this barn find had neither, the headlight proudly sits atop the handlebars and the cylinder was still at its original 145.5cc bore.

She had either been modified in Australia by the dealer, or she arrived on our shores in her current guise.

I still like to think that the Italians, on a Friday afternoon, would get around to the Australasian export scooters and give them a touch of uniqueness (in other words, they would get rid of excess parts from different models and years and ship them off).

Either way, this bellissima is on her way to a very proud owner in Adelaide. He’ll be riding (not hiding) this uniquely Aussie Vespa, and it will join his vast Vespa and Lambretta collection.

Vespa SS90- Double

With two of the rarest and coolest Vespa’s made in the SS Scooter  workshop, the opportunity to photograph them could not be  missed. With Sandy’s unmolested and unrestored SS90, sitting next to Tony Dunham’s beautiful and  meticulously restored SS90 made for a rare and beautiful sight on a steamy  Sydney summers day.
