Thats one good looking scooter mate. Now keeping her this pristine is going to be a difficult job, it being all white. Ensure that it is parked in a closed setting, so dust doesnt settle on it and sit on it for long periods. She is a killer. Cheers again.

Thanks Buddy for the appreciation..!! Yes, it will be a difficult task to maintain this in pristine condition.
I will, as far as possible ensure that the scooter remains in a good condition.

Currently, it stands covered with Water Proof Cover over it in the Parking of our society.

Hi Friends,

This is regarding the Registration Papers for my Vespa-150. The previous owner promised to send the papers by February-2012, but i still havent got the papers.

When i am mailing him and calling him, no response. What can i do in this case ? How can the papers be made for the scooter ?

Suggestions are welcome.

Hi,

Is there any way to reach the owner personally through a local person? Or may be you can drive there someday and confront him.

If you want to make papers, then i guess you will have to buy the papers from a scrap guy. You know about Nana Peth in Pune right?

Hows the scooter doing by the way?

Hey Sanjeev.

I am late in commenting on the thread but I have told you that I am a sucker for restoration projects and in love with any kind of automotive machinery from Italy. The Vespa looks splendid in white and full marks to you for bringing her back to her pristine state in a a short period of time.

Best,

Raj

Was tied up with work, due to which the below mentioned jobs are still pending:

1. Chaging of the Magnet Light Coils.
2. Searching for the Original Petrol tank.
3. Searching for the Original Rear Seat Plate: Was having a chat with Hillram Sir, for the Rear Seat Plate, he told that the plate which i am searching never came with the Indian Vespa, can anyone throw more light on the same ?
