welcome Lambro, that's a nice Vespa you have, I see the color scheme is similar to some of the asian style. Great to see another piece of Italian art still surviving amidst of the motorcycle era.

Default Re: Vespas and Vespas only

seeking help from vespa experts.
Had posted this in sushil's Bajaj 150 Restoration thread, need help in understanding whether its Vespa or Bajaj 150.
1971 - 1973 was the first batch of Bajaj 150 as I understand, but this particular one which is 1972 has the center piece logo space for Vespa (not the Bajaj logo option). Also the horn cast is small like vespa. Need to know whether I could use the vespa or Bajaj 150 monograms.

Bought this from Single owner, Bangalore registered one. After a long hibernation (owner did not remember when it was last started), got the carburator cleaned & it started with some 10 + kicks. Though initially it was stalling due to dust in the petrol tank, now its running smooth.

I am in the process of restoring it partially, will post the pictures soon.

I have not seen a Vespa 150, but this looks to be a Bajaj 150, Dad had one for almost 2 decades and it looks very very similar to it. The brake lever at the footwell, I think it was different for a vespa, but not sure. However, Bajaj 150 had a steel net kind of storage below the handle bar, above the brake lever, this seems to have a proper storage cabinet, again this was with vespa I suppose. Looks to be a mixture of both, you may decide which logo you like, I would have gone with a Bajaj.

Not sure my scooter qualify this thread, what ever, thanks a lot to the Experts in this thread & Anjan Sir, this forum gave lot of inputs for me to complete my semi restoration ( I mean to say in a ride able condition), I am enjoying my ride & every time when it is out in HSR, there will be queries on Price, spares, etc & people love its innocent looks.

Rest of the pictures , have posted in Sushil's Bajaj 150 thread.

Thanks

It has a signature blue-and-gold paintwork over a zinc metallized body...

Your thread just might be the inspiration for me to do it up again...
The Vespa runs again. It has been a few months that it had been completely overhauled, and this is how it looks now.

The tomato red coloured repainted Bajaj Chetak that you have posted is actually among the earliest company shade of the Chetak from the mid 1970's. Bajaj Auto had gifted many of its dealers with one such example and as these were available a few years later, upon payment in foreign exchange (US $ costing between $ 800 or so) the red Chetaks with the dealers became everyone's envy but the dealer's pride. It had a long single seat with the stepney concealed (popping out at the base) to its left side which was the glove box in other Bajajs.

This beauty was with a close friend of mine. He had put it up on sale late last year. Dunno if it is sold by now.
