1965 SS180

 

A couple of nice autumnal shots sent in by a fellow UK vespa fan who was good enough to buy a copy of my book

This lovely SS180 was restored a few years ago using cellulose rather than 2-pack paint for a more authentic finish. The previous owner found it in a friend's garage where it had sat for 20 years..! After purchasing the Super Sport a sympathetic and understated restoration was undertaken.

This 1965 model is registered on a 'C' plate, the first year they were sold in the UK. It is a British specification SS180 with headset key, original reg. plate, original engine and speedo with vintage bubble grips, original horn and headlamp - just how it would have been in 1965 and still running on its 6 volt system and points.

I will be taking some shots of this lovely vespa on 35mm film in the near future and am arranging a date with its owner, so keep watching this space ...
