Ride Safe and see you all in the new year!

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 PX 200 Street Racer

Friday feature scooter: Vespa PX 200 Street Racer (photographed by Wolfwerk Photography , built by SSScooter:

With an initial brief to turn his every day ride into a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”, this machine quickly went the opposite direction when just before the build the owner went for a “full-on” orange veneer.

With the stainless SIP expansion pipe hanging out the side, the Garelli carbon mudgard out front and the bright red Bitubos keeping her on the ground; all point directly that this is a wolf, inside and out.

She is definitely not disguising the fact that she is not only a tyre burner but also a work of street racer art to hit the roads from SS SCOOTER!
