Must be getting old.......don't ban me. !!!

Not sure if its nostalgia, boy's toys, aversion to walking uphill or just novelty value................but I really fancy one of these.

I used to not give a foc, then I discovered Red Bull and now I don't give a flying foc !!!

With those old Vespa's, a big part of the appeal was tinkering with that little motor behind the side fairings. :) Tuning the engine/exhaust note too. :smokin
A silent... electric... Vespa... loses alot of appeal for me (thinking nostalgia).

However the young hip guys and girls will prefer this, over a noisy motorbike, for its clean appeal (no smoke, noise, fuel, even servicing will be no hassle).

That's a nice looking bike though. Quite sporty. :)

Admin,tell us his address we must get round there before it's to late,they've already got into part of his brain,we really have to help him I've seen this before and the poor soul was left blubbering something about Mods and Lambrettas before collapsing into an uncontrollable heap covered in used Parkas :eek
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

the old classic joke springs to mind . . .

Treat everything in life the way a dog would- if you can't eat it or foc it, forget it.

Reckon you could still fit a peg and a bit of plastic for the wheels - should give you the sound you're after  :D
