I have just bought a 1997 PX 150 Vespa after having had good experiences with my existing 1988 Vespa 50s. I am of course enjoying the extra power but I will hang onto the 50s for while yet just because I like it. I have been doing a lot of lurking on both this site, and the small frame site and have picked a lot of very useful information in the process. My thanks to the unwitting providers.
I recently did the Trans Alpine Scooter Safari which involved riding the 50 from Christchurch (NZ) 250Ks over the mountain passes to Hokitika as a Cancer Society fund raiser .... 250 small scooters plus support crews and collectively there was NZ$191,000 raised .... all good. There is another small scoot event in March next year riding from Wanganui, over the Desert Road and on to Taupo, some 270Ks, and again in aid of cancer research etc. The plan is for me to ride the 50s while my daughter will ride the PX and just possibly my son will be in NZ and ride my 64 Honda 90 ... a sort family team event.
Again thanks for all of the information which is daily provided on all things Vespa.
