Vespa GT

Vespa gt by Long__John__Silver

Beautiful original paint 1967 Vespa GT125 here, taken by owner Long_John_Silver with Super Gandolfi  seat, Ulma 267 legshield, Vigano footrest & engine converted to DR 177cc barrel kit.

Something can only be original once; this looks so good & would be criminal to restore/re-paint this; sadly I bet there are many who would restore this at the drop of a hat! I've got a feeling the current owner loves this GT just the way she is; beautifully original - I hope I'm right...

Since writing this post this morning, the owner has directed me to these links detailing the sympathetic 'tidying up' of his lovely GT - vespaforever forum here in Italian & Vespa Club Jaen forum here in Spanish, more pics below, click on fotos to view large.

Long John - grazie mille/muchas gracias for sharing this great story; I love your ride; it's one of the nicest original vespas I've seen ; )

    Hi Vespamore, you right!!!

    I'm glad you like it, you understand perfectly the spitrit of this vespa.
    Many have advised me to do a complete restoration, but I have done a conservate restoration. You can see the photos of the process in these two forums, one Spanish and one Italian.

    I maked full professional restoring of vespas, but this kind of restoring was more 'difficult in some way.

    Bye, sorry for my bad english and congratulation for the blog.
