I need to know if you would think, this will fit the vespas that were sold in India and also if any one knows what was the vespa 150 model known in the UK market?

Does anyone know a source for the floor trims, like the one is pix posted by Karl?
The Vespas we had in India are VBAs. Italian Vespas never had round meters. Bajaj came up with the "bracket" to hold a round meter, which tey would produce. Later they changed the handle to accommodate this meter without the "bracket" which can be seen in Karl's vespa.

The VBAs were soon remodeled as VBBs, which never came to India, unfortunately. They were better in having four speeds, and a tail light that was kinda cooler. The taillight shone light on the license plate too in this model.

The VBB was known as a sportique in the UK.

Floor trim sets should be not too hard to procure, for a total of around 600 - 1000 Rupees a full set.
