Fully Restored 1969 Vespa Piaggio 150 For Sale
1969 Vespa VLB 150cc Scooter. If you are looking to have the nicest vintage scooter anywhere around then this is the scooter for you. This Vespa has had a 100% frame off rotisserie restoration and only has 478 miles since the restoration for break in purposes.
We started with a 1969 Vespa VLB 150cc model and restored it to perfection. The scooters body was stripped down to the bare metal, the scooters frame was then checked for any cracks abnormalties or bad welds before the restoration took place. None were found. The Vespa was then primered and then finished with high quality silver paint. Then all rubber hoses,brake shoes,front and rear shocks,springs,tires,tubes,cables
locks,all electrical wiring and electronic parts,floor strips, and rubber trim were replaced with original equipment new old stock.The seat was restored and recovered and we used polished stainless steel for the seat rail or passenger grip,all floor trim is also in polished stainless steel instead of cheaper aluminum and rubber, and of course all rubber on entire Vespa is brand new.
This Vespa also rides as good as it looks and the engine has also been 100% rebuilt. The engine castings were stripped down and sandblasted and checked for any cracks or imperfections or stripped threads. We then reassembled engine to much higher tolerances than original and replaced pistons,rings,carburetor, all bearings(camshaft bearings,gear bearings and main shaft bearing), and clutch. We also rebuilt all gears and clutch assembly. This scooter was then tuned to perfection once completely reassembled. This Vespa is very peppy and will do approx. 65 mph and has a fantastic sound thanks to the polished stainless steel sport exhaust system we put on it, increasing horsepower and giving that vintage killer sound. This scooter also kicks starts with ease, with only one kick neccessary and and easy kick at that anybody can start this scooter. Not only does it run great but it also stops just as good with the new improved brake pedal and slotted brakes shoes that were installed for improved safety over the original 1969 set up. This Vespa also shifts like a dream with the original rebuilt 4 speed manual shifter and the carburator we installed on it is much more efficient with a reed valve for easier starts better gas milage and better all over ride as well as increased horsepower.This Vespa also has a brand new spare tire and two sets of keys.
This Vespa is called the Fatboy and how it gets its name is the widening of the rear luggage, gloveboxes or saddlebags on the scooter. Giving this scooter an incredibly sexy unique look. The lines on this scooter are amazing and you can not take it anywhere without people wanting to talk to you and ask you questions. The Vespa scooter is one of the most iconic and sexy vehicles in the world and this one takes it a step further with the best lines I have seen on a scooter and has more storage room than a conventional one. Also has front glovebox for alot of total storage on this scooter for trips.
