This lovely Vespa would be star of the show on the set of Luca!
This is an exceptional example of the much loved and modern classic Vespa 100 from 1982. It has been lovingly restored to higher than factory specification with some subtle improvements to make it more useable in modern traffic.
This Vespa Douglas has had a full bare metal respray, sympathetically bead blasted, etch primed, checked for any frame and structural defects and stove enamelled by one of the UK’s most sought after motorcycle paint craftsman. It is totally straight!
The engine rebuilding process has included splitting the cases, checking for wear, replacing all the bearings, seals and gaskets etc with quality items, a BGM gear selector, new clutch, Malossi 135cc kit with new rings and a brand new Dellorto 20mm SHBC carburettor and air filter on rotary intake.
Front forks have had a total strip and rebuild with new bearings and seals, brakes and tyres and tubes all round. All cables have been replaced with new quality nylon lined items, new levers, grips, new period 50 mph speedo, seat, running strips and finished off with chrome Cuppini legshield trim from Italy!
To ensure reliable supply the electrical system has been replaced with a modern 12 volt electronic kit and a quality ignition system giving a reliable spark, 12 volt halogen lighting and a DC output to be able to run charging systems for phones and satnavs.
From 2022 this vehicle is MOT and tax exempt so in the meantime it comes supplied with one years full MOT.
This reliable scooter looks and rides superbly well, is extremely manageable and easily performs with grace and style in modern traffic.
Whether you want cheap, reliable, toll free transport for everyday use, a Sunday ice cream run around or a stunning piece of Anglo/Italian history for your space, sought after classics in this condition are rare and values are increasing and will continue to, so grab yourself this scooter now before someone else does!
