Description

I have owned this vehicle since 1969 and as far as I know all the parts are original, apart from the rear-light and the floor mats.
The following parts are missing, however: Seat and brackets, battery, rectifier, wheels, stand and brackets, cylinder head, silencer, number-plate bracket, rear-light, light switch, floor runners, engine mounting bolt and some trim and perishable items.Parts identified as requiring replacement: flat floor panel, headlight glass, wiring loom, control cables.All parts will need to be examined for serviceability before refurbishment or replacement.New replacement parts are available for just about everything, and at reasonable prices, but sourcing "new old stock" for a full Historic Vehicle restoration will be less easy, and more expensive.Having personally ridden and maintained Vespa scooters for six years, back in the day, and having fully restored one recently I can offer a limited amount of advice about restoring this one, if required.
This scooter has never been registered with DVLA and has no V5C document. Neither does it have its original logbook so it cannot be registered under it's original number. However, matching frame and engine numbers mean this scooter could be registered as a Historic Vehicle following an appropriate restoration.Prospective buyers or their agents may examine it and its parts prior to the date of sale but they should be aware that no offers will be accepted once the sale has concluded.
Buyer to collect following payment clearance.
This British-made Vespa was bought new in London at the start of the mod era, and presents a rare opportunity to recreate a genuine part of British manufacturing and cultural history.
