So im fitting a fancy crankshaft on a Modern PX 200 and a call comes in for a potential Buyer of the COSA . turns out he was in Thurleigh Grove  (not far from where I was called out) Turn up to meet Mike and he tells me hes been riding BMW for years but his first scooter was Vespa Sprint / he wants to go back to scooters after 25 years riding . GOOO Mike

Rainy days

I had a great day thanks to Darbi now have a wet weather onesie to keep the rain out! Tested on the m/way today – Riding a 150 Super in pouring rain my 1sie I thought yeah living the dream then two Satans Slaves rolled past in leather Laughing !

Recently while parked in Majoribanks St , a passer by asks:

“Is this a Vespa?”

“Sure”,  I reply “1970 Supersport.” Then he briefly tells his story of having ridden from north of Norway to south of Spain in the 60’s aboard a 1961 lambretta. All the while tears are welling up in his eyes as he relives the trip in his memory. I shook his hand before moving on.

A 10 point bonus for a Mille Miglia story!
