So its you and you yellow scooter. Loved the two yellow ones at the meet. Why didn't you tell that you were a BHPian ? Didn't you notice the TEAM-BHP badge on my Lambretta ?

Good to know that you too have an original (Italian) series 2, srisha! 'appears to have the horncast innocenti badge intact and hope you also get the side-panel badges.

Yardshark, let me guess

Yes, it sure did turn out lovely, me being a witness to it from day 1.

Well, among the TBHP scooter owners I was one of them but fortunately not photographed with my scoot

Yup, despite the badging, somehow you can tell it's a Vijai and not a GP by any means.
I'd be interested to know where the whitewalls were obtained from. I presume they are genuine, not painted.

@stanher - the white wall inserts are available on ebay. also available for cars.

@pavan - definetely a vijay super , but anyway i was told it does have a 200 cc engine and hence the badging , wonder how much of that is true.

It is the API badge not the innocenti, the side badges and other accessories are coming including the white wall inserts

You are the one who has seen it unrestored, see if you can source the original picture from a Javed?

Hi Scooterites ,

I have a vespa nv 1992 model. Though not a classic like some of your's -- would still love to be a part of your family --- if allowed

Kindly let me know the way ahead to register etc. I am in Mumbai but would atleast try and visit you when in bangalore as i keep traveling.

Thanks.

Andy

Default Vespas Allowed ?

Hi Scooterites,

I am from Mumbai . Totally love 2 wheelers and 4 wheelers especially the ones that are rare to see but still a craze.

I have a 92 vespa in stock condition. Wish to restore her to europeon vespa looks --- the one's we see in the UK Scotter Mags.

Please let me know where could I get those monograms, body rail guards, rear large chrome carrier etc.

Apart from my vespa I also own : -

Honda Dio
Yamaha RX 135
Yamaha RD 350
RE Lightning 535
Yezdi Classic 250
Pulsar 150 - 1st model

Looking forward to meet the club members soon.

Cheers.

Andy
