I always remembered the purists were really into Lambrettas and looked down on Vespa as the "pretend" scooter (an almost...nearly, but not quite) can also happen with other motorcycles too

:rotfl: :yt:

TBH i bought it because the lad was offered £25 for it from a scooter shop that had
taken a lot of his money on it recently & I thought they were taking the piss , so i said i would take a chance on it £100 , he was pissed off with it & wanted rid..
if i can fix it its a cheap scooter for someone to get to work on or whatever , who knows i may keep it for shits an giggles , just fancied a cheapo project lOl

anyone got 30 mirrors they don't want :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

:yt: l think the Lambrettas just looked a little bit more ‘racy’, and their cooling induction rotors added a characteristic whine above the exhaust which added to the effect!? ;) Still ‘Ace’ (Sting) in the film did have a Vespa! 8-)
