VESPA P125 SCOOTER with P150 ENGINE - SIMONINI PERFORMANCE EXHAUST - SEBAC SHOCK - GREAT PROJECT!!
BEEN STOOD FOR A LONG TIME!!! SO WILL NEED AN ENGINE REFRESH/OVERHAUL ETC, BEFORE BEING ROADWORTHY
FITTED WITH A MATCHING MODEL RANGE P150cc ENGINE WITH A SIMONINI PERFORMACE EXHAUST
SEBAC FRONT SHOCK AND MAYBE REAR - cant tell
JAZZY ENGRAVED REAR WHEEL HUB
ENGINE TURNS OVER EASILY AND HAS GOOD COMPRESSION - NOT BEEN STARTED/RUN
ROLLS AROUND FREELY IN NEUTRAL AND SELECTS GEARS(STAYS PUT!) WHEN IN GEAR!
The front and back brakes work fine
The throttle twist round ok
Was full to the brim with petrol on purchase and obviously still is so tank should be good inside.
Premix two stroke oil to fuel system - not an auto lube model.
Non battery model - runs of the power generated by the motor once kick started
Comes with stuff in last pic:
Some old MOT certificates and receipts etc, from the previous owner
A CD containing written and scanned documents I have sent to the DVLA -
HPI check, Original V5c, V62 and V627-1 application
Newly issued DVLA VIN NUMBER to be stamped/engraved on the frame - will only cost £5-10 to get done!!
Key for working seat lock
Top mounting ignition barrel and key - head stock side ignition has no key!
Original speedo with cracked lens (unscrew lens frame to replace) showing 50099 km/h
x2 signal lights that were in the top headlight cover
All the tools, premix and measuring jug, that came with the scoot when I bought it
The head light and top cover were both damaged, so they will need replacing
CHASSIS/VIN NUMBER DETAILS
D.... OVER STAMPED NUMBERS...M (over stamped original numbers that are partially visible - should be DMG...five numbers...0M)
Piaggio badge...VNX 1T (original, correct and clear model numbers)
*............* (you can see the two original and correct stars that should have a five or six digit unique chassis/VIN number between them)
ENGINE NUMBER DETAILS
Piaggio badge VLX 1M (original, correct and clear 150cc model numbers)
*242471* (original, correct and clear unique engine numbers)
The model stamp will probably be kept and the new DVLA VIN number stamped/engraved
The engine numbers are original and clear so can be left alone
MY STORY SO FAR.....
I bought this Vespa back in February this year with the aim to get it back on the road and use it for transport to work. It was HPI clear and the V5c was present, but I couldn’t see the VIN/Chassis number on the frame and for some crazy reason bought it anyway, hoping it would be somewhere or under some paint. Once home I carefully removed a patch of paint to find that the VIN had been removed with only the model numbers still present.
The scoot has been sat covered in my garage ever since while I went through the lengthy process of getting a new VIN from issued.
I have just received the documents with the new DVLA VIN number, this will need to be engraved/stamped on the chassis by an authorised garage/dealer and the docs sent back, in order to get a Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) test (like a more thorough MOT, I presume).
The scoot will be given a new Q plate registration number before it hit’s the b roads!!
If I could easily spare the cash stored in this beauty, didn’t need the space in the garage, and had some spare time to enjoy tinkering with it, I would be keeping it for sure….but unfortunately I don’t!!
I WOULD ADVISE POTENTIAL BUYERS TO POP OVER ANYTIME TO HAVE A LOOK AT IT
BEFORE BIDDING IF POSSIBLE SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOUR GETTING!
I KNOW A GOOD LOCAL(YORKSHIRE AREA) AND A UK COURIER THAT COULD DELIVER FOR YOU IF REQUIRED.
