So many of these early 50's scooters when we were in Bali I was tempted to fill a container with them and ship home....had one local wanting to sell me his absolutely mint one for $250 #-o they bring some pretty good scratch with the "hipster" types here

Cool! Kelly has a 63. The years can be kind of misleading. Her title says it's a 67, but it's really a 63. I spoke with the guy at Scooters Originali and he said that some of them came over and sat for a couple of years. When they titled them, they titled it the current year. Here's a pic. I rebuilt the engine, it's a 90cc. it was pretty hard to find the rings for it. I can't wait to see what you do with that.

I have had a hand full of Vespa scooters over the years, Blue and white as well as red. I have been trying to buy a Vespa 400 Coupe from a friend up in the Roaring Fork Valley for many , many, many years. He bought it new as a teen, rolled it, drove but never fixed it, and has now been stored in his basement since the 80s. I borrowed this picture from the web, but I really want his car.

911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.
