Vespa Street Racer with NOS

After 2 years of planning, painting and building Sandy’s (owner and head mechanic at S.S Engineering) Vespa Street Racer is now finally rebuilt and ready to tear up the roads again. However this time she has been finished off with a high reflective virtual titanium paint. With further refinements in breaking, handling, power and esthetics have not only reinforced this Vespa’s pedigree and street-cred as a brutally fast machine but have also reinforced Sandy’s love affair with this gorgeous machine.

Body: Worb 5 drop bars, digital speedo, digital tacho, Billet master cylinder, full hydraulic Billet front disc brake, semi-hydraulic rear disc conversion, front tubeless rim, rear wide tire kit with 130x70x10 tire, rear Bitubo, front BGM damper, STO spring and SIP sport seat.
Engine: ported and blueprinted T5 cases, ported Malossi barrel and piston, RD 350 reed block, V force 4 reed, 28PHBH carb, upgeared primary drive, reinforced MMW clutch, Nitros Oxide System with 6 HP boost in 3rd W.O.T and 4t W.O.T
