1136 / My vintage vespa / Carpesa // Spain

My Classic Vespa from 1972 is finally being restored. It was really hard to choose the color; finally, after a research (academic influencies?!), I found out that there were 4 original colors of this model in 1972. This yellow (Texas yellow) was one of them, I contacted a Fiat specialist painter (they work with the same color references as Piaggio) and gave him the Max Meyer original reference.

I’m waiting for years for the restoration, the mechanic phoned me, saying he was finally working on it! I wanted to make a lot of pictures when I saw that finally, the parts were being assembled, but, after one pic, my phone ran out of battery! Off course, I had my schmincke watercolor pan with me, along with all the painting gear to fix the problem (they never get out of battery)! The scooter was made in Italy, bought in Portugal and being restored at Spain! Looking forward to ride it again

838 / After the vespa PX ride / Leça da Palmeira // Porto

When I was riding the PX125 ( and thinking) I realized that what I used to call “my new vespa”  has already more than 25 years! It was made on 1987 and I bought it in the late nineties. Since then the color changed from white, to green and now, this blue.
