Colour: British Racing Green V5 Registration Document: Present
Original Condition Douglas Vespa Sportique – 1964 - original UK scooter NOT an import. Lovely original Sportique, lots of patina with wear and tear – full of character. 150 c.c. 4 Manual Gears. Current V5 in my name. MOT expires end of July 2014. Road Tax is Free (historic vehicle) Purchased from Retrospective Scooters in North London and recently serviced by my local Vespa agent. Everything works as it should (apart from the speedo which has just stopped – just needs a new speedo cable or a new ‘worm’… easy job). Bit of a shame to sell her as she’s a beauty but I now have 4 scooters and I really don’t need that many ….. i start her up once a week and give her a spin around the block to ensure all is fine, i used to commute to work on her most days. I would describe this scooter as original, unrestored condition - please do not expect a shiny perfect Sportique, this beautiful scooter has lots of little scuffs and marks (but no dents) - it has loads of character ...... as they say 'they are only original once'. Lots of really nice original details on this Sportique : Very rare ‘D’ logo hand grips. Original seat with the rear Douglas badge and trim. Original unique choke lever. Correct acrylic Douglas badge on top of horncast - very rare. Original engine – in perfect working order – the carb was swapped when I bought it but I do have the original carb which is included in the sale as a spare. Most of the British Racing Green paint is original – it has had a bit of a blow over many years ago (eg the side bubbles by the looks of it). Original MPH speedo. 8” wheels with continental white walls. Original spec ie 6 volts and points – (lights are nice and bright). Lovely new ‘Twin Pipe’ exhaust which really helps the performance and sounds great. Original VCB cog badge on leg shield. Remains of the running in sticker on the inside of the legshield. Comes with a few old tax discs and MOTs. 2 sets of keys - i is the original set and 1 is a copy as a spare set. I also use Fully Synth 2 stroke Oil (Power 1) at 2% mix This scooter was featured in Scootering Magazine a few years ago. I am located in East London, zone 2. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions - i am a member of the Veteran Vespa Club so you are buying from an enthusiast. Please note that you will probably have seen people selling imported VBB models and describing them as a 'Sportique' which is an incorrect description - the scooter that i am selling is an original Sportique, built by Douglas in the UK .... it not an import. Advertised elsewhere so the listing may end early. Cash on collection or you can transfer funds via a bank transfer but the funds will need to clear prior to collection of the scooter. Please no silly offers or offers of a swap ..... i'm happy to provide more info and pictures. You are bidding to buy.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
