My mate used to import Vespas and lambrettas from Vietnam and refurb them to sell.

My dads house was the meeting place of the A3 desperados as my step sister was a member, better known as the A3 Dustbins as they always broke down.

Loved them (also since watching quadrophenia as a kid) rode my neighbours one a few months ago and fell right out of love lol. Was ok in a straight line, it went well but corners were shocking lol, mind u it was a late 60s one so old technology. The twist grip gear change was weird to get used to. Still love the look of
Them. Sorry no parts
