Vespa, my first love!?
Just recently I returned to England and bought back my first ever Vespa that I rode, a 1967 Vespa SS180 way back in '79
My friend owned the scooter from 1979 until he sold it to me in 1990 where I set about restoring it back to original.
In 1992-3 I won many trophies and due to kids/family commitements sold it in 1995 to another friend, something I really regretted and asked him for many years if he ever sold it I would buy it back from him. Well as luck would have it I had the chance last September and now it lives with me once again after all these years!
Along with my first love I have restored many Vespa's over the years including Sportique,Rally's,T5 and many P2's
Im currently restoring the SS180 as it needs a face lift and a change of colour.
I work as Vespa mechanic here in Vienna, Austria!
Look forward to contributing and receiving help from your site, so far so good, keep up the good work!
