125 leader engine [May 01 (%12h%%:51a)]

ilikevespas
hi all, does anyone know if the standard 125 leader engine I have in my piaggio zip will go into my old 1998 ET4 chassis? I am pretty sure they are near enough the same engine apart from a few electrics. oh the zip is 2002

Finally decided to look up vespa interests as I begin my great restoration project of my one true love, The Vespa. More specifially, MY The Vespa. =D And with a name like vespa_love, how could I not join immediately?

These guys are kind of big jackasses, but it's still funny.

I know I must sound like a moron, but I have some questions about Vespas.

Do they do well going uphill?
What is the least expenisive price that I could pay for a good used one?
What kind of gas mileage do they get?
How fast can you go in them? (I think the new ones are supposed to be 75mph, but I could be wrong, just want to make sure)
Could I travel longish trips, such as 91 miles with a Vespa?

Thanks.

a sad day [January 28 (%12h%%:57a)]

Today is a sad day. I am selling my beloved Vespa ET4 to a guy from Arizona. I'd like to keep it, but I barely have room for my car, much less my car, my new motorcycle, and my scooter. Farewell, friend!

I just don't know if I can bring myself to remove the patch. ;__;

hello [September 04 (%12h%%:55p)]

baby_goat
Hello. I am a new member here. I have a relatively new Vespa, which I know is considered a crime by many, but I enjoy it and ride it as my main commuter vehicle during the week. It's a 2001 ET4. A lot of the trim pieces have been replaced with chrome. The only performance modification is a Cito exhaust. I drive it in SoCal, but I still wear a riding jacket and gloves for a little extra protection just in case some dude in a massive SUV launches me.

I saw The Interpreter tonight, and I think Nicole Kidman was riding a vespa. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

I think Jude Law looks soooo awesome on a Vepsa! He is like SO fine and my idol. What other celebrities do you think would look hot on a vespa? I have to say Gwen Stefani and Tim McGraw!

Hi! [April 01 (%12h%%:47p)]

I'm new here. I'm so glad there is finally a community for vespas, they are my greatest love! I actually have five vespas. I know it's kind of going overboard but I just can't help myself. Anyone go to Vespa USA? That's probably my favorite site. My newest vespa is the Vespa PX 150! Here's a description:

No need to adjust your monitor, and no, you haven't gone back in time. This is the real deal, the original, the legendary, the classic PX, back in the U.S. after a 20+ year hiatus.* These brand new Vespas may have just come off the production line, but they're classic PX. Maintaining its original design and technical innovation, it is the only choice for those who want the traditional four-speed gear shift and a design that never goes out of style.

It was hard to get my hands on one of these babies. So, what vespas do you all have or want?
