My 'new' vespa... exchanged my Sprint Veloce for this lovely 1971 Motovespa GT160. In excellent condition & still wearing it's original orange paint scheme. Imported from Córdoba, Andalucia in Spain by Retrospective Scooters - Aug/Sep 2012. Soon to be fitted with a reconditioned PX200 engine & S.I.P. road exhaust.

As described by Retrospective Scooters:
"Spanish built Vespa GT still in original paint. We do not fully restore a scooter of this good an original condition; we have stripped and cleaned it and replaced the original Spanish engine with a modern reconditioned PX 125 motor and upgraded the lights to 12volts. All new teflon cables are added and new wheels and tyres. Everything mechanically has been attended to, to make it reliable."
