9781845848835: Vespa Scooters - Classic 2-stroke models 1960-2008 (Essential Buyer's Guide)

The two stroke Vespa is rightly regarded as an iconic scooter. It's initial purpose was to provide low cost transportation to the masses in the 1950s, but it evolved through the vibrant '60s to became a symbol of the burgeoning youth culture, and on into the '90s when it became firmly entrenched as an Italian icon. The history of this phenomenon has been well documented, as has the subculture that surrounds it, but there has been no previous attempt to provide a guide to buying one of these classic scooters. This book will help ensure that you avoid the main pitfalls and end up with your very own slice of La Dolce Vita on the driveway.

This Essential Buyer's Guide is packed with good advice from running costs, paperwork, vital statistics, valuation and the Vespa community, right through to whether your scooter will fit in with your lifestyle. This is the complete guide to choosing, assessing and buying the Vespa of your dreams.

About the Author:

Mark Paxton has owned, repaired and restored classic vehicles for more than 25 years and written extensively about the process in both car and motorcycle  magazines, and several books. A long time admirer of classic Vespas, as much for their intelligent engineering as their undoubted style, he has managed to satisfy his addiction to the aroma of burnt two stroke oil through the ownership of several of Piaggio's finest, which have been ridden on a daily basis as well as on extended European tours. Mark’s other books include: How to Restore Classic Smallframe Vespa Scooters, How to Restore Volkswagen Buses, and Essential Buyer’s Guides for Vespa 2-strokes, Minis, Ford Capris and Citroen 2CVs, all published with Veloce.

Review:

"A must-have for anyone looking to buy a two-stroke Vespa. Well worth a punt at a tenner." – Octane
"While it written for the novice in mind, it contains lots of good information that even experts can learn from."– Scoot! Magazine
