Along with rival Lambretta, the Piaggio-built Vespa mobilised an entire generation of Italians in the immediate post-war years. The humble scooter went on to become part of British youth culture in the 1960s as the favourite form of transportation for the fashion-conscious ‘Mods’. With foresight conspicuously lacking in the rest of Britain’s motorcycle industry at that time, Douglas obtained manufacturing rights to the Vespa, launching it in the UK in 1951. Since its introduction, countless different versions have come and gone, yet the Vespa of today remains recognisably related to the first one made more than 60 years ago.
This wonderful Vespa was restored in the Principality of Monaco colours, perfect for a ride along the streets of Monte Carlo! The vendor describes it as being in generally very good conditions.
A great opportunity to buy the best Italian scooter ever made in the colours of the most exclusive town in the world!
