My old Vespa GS 150
Today I started my old Vespa GS 150 from 1961. Also my first Vespa, bought in May 1989.
It has been unused for some years, almost since the puncture during a winter rally in Finland.
Starter gas and a new battery wasn't enough, I also had to empty the tank, petrol ages Quick these days. New, fresh petrol helped. Suddenly I was driving along and ended up at Patrik's home. He took his 180 SS, the one I borrowed during Vespa World Days in Norway, and we went to the "Scooter-fika" here in Stockholm. "Fika" means coffe and some pastry...
6 scooters were present, Vespa vs Lambretta = 4-2.
The pics are a shade too blue, due to evening light. The GS has it's original colour.
The hole was put there by an former owner, for a switch for the ignition.
One of the nicest behinds in the history of Vespa!
