1977 Vespa Rally 200 $4500

Here’s a real gem. A 1977 Vespa Rally 200. This is the final year for the Rally, and is a bit different from earlier ones. Most notably that is has the engine from the forthcoming P200, and did not originally come with the Femsatronic ignition.

The details:

It’s been repainted in the original color,( The paint does has a couple nicks and scratches, but nothing major) as well as having the engine rebuilt, new cables and wiring. Wiring has been converted to an all AC system, so there is no battery to deal with, and all lights work, including the turn signals.

Scooter thefts are way up this year.

Hello to all that may come across this post. I have no idea how to attempt to get this message to everybody that may be affected by this massive increase. If you come across it and know someone with a scooter, please pass this word of warning along to them.

PLEASE CHAIN YOUR SCOOTER TO SOMETHING THAT CAN NOT BE EASILY CUT WITH A STURDY CHAIN. Also, please do that every single time you are not riding your scooter. We know that it can be something of a pain to do that if you’re only running inside somewhere for 5 minutes. But that’s all it takes for a scooter to disappear. Sometimes forever.

We have had approximately 60 scooters come through here this summer, with varying degrees of damage. Many of the scooters were uninsured or did not have theft coverage. So, it’s also a good idea to take a look at your insurance situation, or get some if you don’t already have some. Minimum coverage is required in DC anyway, but, it’s worth it to get a more comprehensive policy with as low a deductible as you can manage.

Stella Birthday Party Is Still Going On

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s OK to be fashionably late to the party, well, up to the point that the party is over. However, this party is still in full swing.899767_10206728648712805_1422246638_o
