Hello everyone. Came across this site & read all the cool stories so thought to add my own. I used to have a 1980 Vespa PX200E. I inherited it from my childhood best friend used to restore & sell them when we were in high school during our "mod" days. This was during the 80's of Vespa Rally's to Santa Barbara & Bear Bear in California. Unfortunately with the financial hard times, we were evicted and the owners auctioned off our belongings which the Vespa was one of them :( Hopefully one day I can get it back those m*****f*****s! Anyhow, I came across this bike last weekend from a seller that got it from a neighbor that put alot of time & money into fully restoring it. Though I don't know ANYTHING about fixing motorcycles, one of my good buddies does and he assured to me any fixing he'll do as a bro favor if ever needed. From what I'm told, it now only has 163 miles on the odometer. Anyhow, I paid $1700 & luckily I bought it cause there were literally 10 other guys looking at it as I was making the deal wanting to also buy it. I'm told it's worth much more but the dealer was looking for a turn around since he does this for a living. Either way, it brings back that lost feeling of my Vespa & will hopefully bring many more fond memories. Thanks to everyone for reading this (if you didn't get bored mid way...lol).
