A 1969 150cc Super

A lady brought  this Vespa to my workshop for a complete restoration. The lady was emotional attached to the Vespa because it  belonged to her late step father. For this reason she wanted it completely restored to its former glory without worrying too much about the costs involved.

The gentleman owned this scooter since it was imported from Italy via Japan or New Zealand where the indicators seen in the pictures, were compulsory even in 1969 and they were mounted at sides of the handlebars.

The Vespa was used regularly for many years and subsequently stored in a shed, were it remained until it was transported to my workshop.
