smallframes.com project Vespa
is a 1983 125 Primavera ET3.
I bought it at an excellent shop in Brick Lane, London, called Scooter
Emporium. They ship loads of classic Lambrettas and Vespas
from Italy, and also do great prices on new Vespa PX and ET2/4
originally chose the ET3 because it's the fastest classic smallframe,
and I always prefered the more classic shape over the PK and
PX models. It was made in 1983, looking every
one of its 17 years. Since purchase it has had the crappy far
eastern tyres replaced first with Sava MC 12 Whitewalls, then
Michelin S1s, It has had mirrors added and then removed, a couple
of clutches, cables and brake pad sets, a Leovinci exhaust and
an engine rebuild including the fitment of a Polini 130 kit.
The latest addition is a spare wheel on the legshield with a
of Italy. Here's a few pictures.
