Pretty Green


"Red and green should never be seen"... as in fashion and wearing the two colours together. A statement that stuck in my head from years ago; maybe my other half told me that when I was about to leave the house in a fashion faux pas near miss!? Except of course at Christmas time when red & green are always seen together; so I can get away with this feature immediately following the previous one and it now being December.

I originally came across this striking smallframe when I saw it at the Veteran Vespa Club's Swanage rally in 2014. The owner happens to live reasonably close to me and I'd been meaning to ask him for some time if I could get some shots of it. We eventually agreed to meet up a couple of Sundays ago on a cold November morning. Initially dry, the rain quickly set in, putting in a lengthy appearance. Anyway, I managed to get a few decent 35mm film shots before my fingers stopped working..!


This vespa was originally a 1981 Primavera and is now posing as an ET3 Primavera, since being fitted with electronic ignition and running a DR130 cylinder kit and unusually, a square headset from a Spanish smallframe, which looks like the Piaggio equivalent 50 Special item. Not that in any way I'm 'knocking' this being badged as an ET3. Such things rarely bother me; I was initially struck by its colour and wanted to get some fotos of this smart looking scooter. Thanks to the owner for indulging me ; )
