Fully Restored 1963 Red with White Leather Italian, Piaggio "Mod" Vespa

About

Meticulously restored 1963 vintage Italian, Piaggio Vespa VBB Standard 150cc with super "Mod" (modernist) styling in Candy Apple Red. Chassis No: VBB2T167241. This is an immaculately restored Mid-Century modern piece of history that is mechanically sound and reliable. In the UK during the 1960's there was a movement called the "Mods" and they blinged their Vespas up as much as possible adding as many accessories and lights as possible.They would then ride in groups dominating the roads. The "Mod" look is not an original Italian look but rather something that came out of a movement in the UK. Use it to run around town or as a design piece in your living room! This restored Vespa runs as factory new, (or even better as many of the mechanical components are made from more modern and stronger alloys). Everything was brought back to new condition including: New 150cc reconditioned Piaggio Italian Engine, New four speed Transmission, New internal wiring, seals and trimmings, New brakes, New seating upholstery and all of the other components as listed below: 5 port cylinder upgrade 150cc. Si 20/20 carburator upgrade. Sports exhaust system. 3 x 10" White wall tires. Three and one back folding luggage rack with padded backrest. 12V CDI electrical upgrade. Anti-theft ignition. 4 x mirrors (short stem) on handlebars plus 4 x mod mirrors (long stem) on side of Crash bar. Front Crash bar with 8 mounted LED lights plus light switch control panel California side protective railing with foot rests Chrome rims and hubcaps. Chrome floor runners. On display on the 1stdibs Gallery at the New York Design Center (200 Lexington Avenue, NY, NY).
