Mark 2 Vespa GS160 in White. With SS 180 engine and Sito double tailpipe exhaust. original Ulma double leg shield trims and an original Metalplast GS mud flap. 12v lighting I have owned this since 1999 when it was brought in from Italy. It had been repainted. The paint is very solid. It has been used and so has the hallmarks of use. A few marks here and there. a few scuffs. When I got it I put new forks in. they came from Scootopia and were built up by them. It was driven around a bit as a main scooter fro about 2 years. I then put it into storage for years. It was in storage so long that the bearings in the front end ceased up. so they were taken to Scootopia about 3 years ago to repair. Since then it has been Mot's and on the road. although hardly ridden. I was going to put a 180 conversion kit on. but bought an SS180 engine instead. The ignition now doesn't suffer from the unpredictable battery failure / rubbish rectifier that the GS suffered from. The SS engine runs straight from the stator. I have replaced the lighting coils with 12v lighting coils for improved lighting. The horn and the brake light still run from the battery and are are 6v. The ignition switch and wiring loom remain original and all switches work as they should. The engine has new rings and hasn't been run in yet. And I have had it in the bike for 2 years. That is how little I use it. I have another scooter that I ride about on. This is a reluctant sale. it was my plan to totally restore it. I have accessories that will be listed on Thursday 6th March but if a buyer of this wants priority then they can if they hurry. These include Ulma Horncasting (very rare). chrome panels (Piaggio originals). spare mudguard (Piaggio original). NOS floor mat. Repro Ulma Florida Bars (Scootopia. unused) plus a load of other bits. The bits listed here are not included in the sale. and are sold separately. Its a lovely scooter. runs really well. but I am just never going to use it.
