Where numbers ( should ) be And I just looked for 1984 vespa colour chart
Many thanks. Unfortunately, the images wouldn't open in Photobucket. I managed the find a colour chart and it seems that there are only a few greens. Verde Vallambrosa seems to be the closest as far as I can remember. I'll get my friend's brother-in-law to have a look through them and decides which he likes best.
Don't think there will be a lot of greens to choose from in the same year ,don't imagine they will be like cars,,,with a little shade of a difference Light , Dark, or have a different colour,take it or leave it,
I think I'll see what is available and pick the one the customer likes best.
Are you sure thats the frame number - all vespa frame numbers end with a T not a M - the engines have a M.
If 222913 is the frame number than it would be a PX125E - from sept.84 - It could be writen down wrong on the log book - the frame number on the chassis is at the rear of the engine by the shocker - check what that says.
The P 125 X stopped production in 82 with last frame number 198248 -
It could be that your reading the engine number off the log book - engine numbers did have some sort of order but Piaggio used the same engine in lots of different 125's
No sorry you can' get the colour code from the frame number - I have a list somewhere of all the different greens if you post a pic it would help identify the exact model and give us an idea of the correct colour.That's the number on the
That's the number on the VIN plate.
I can't get a pic to show you as it has been completely stripped back to bare metal.

A friend of mine died a couple of years ago and his brother-in-law has asked me to restore my friend's scooter. My problem is trying to identify exactly what it is in order to order spares etc. Unfortunately, I don't have the logbook, neither does his brother-in-law. According to the registration, it is a Vespa Douglas 1984, but the badges say it is a Vespa P125X. I thought the VIN would help, but it is only 11 characters instead of the 17 I would expect. I checked with a site that provides VINs from registration numbers and it came back with the same 11 characters, VNX1M222913. I'd also like to spray it in its original colours, but according to DVLA, it is green, which doesn't help much. I don't really want to fork out £25 for a new logbook if I can help it, so has anyone any ideas?
