Visited Project13 in East London this morning to finish shooting a very nice custom VBB by Trevor Howe, the man behind Project13 and a man in possession of many talents; mechanic, engineer, artist, photographer to name a few...

I spent a roll of film on the VBB which will be available to view soon and took the above shots on iPhone of Trevor's latest unique, one-off creation. Looking forward to seeing this one finished.


A day in the life..

Setting sun

On arrival at the station for my commute into London yesterday, saw the trains were screwed. I waited around on the platform with everyone else for around 20 minutes and then cycled home, opting to take the vespa into town instead.

A good choice, given the lovely June day we had; much as I love riding on the continent, there's a lot to be said for scooter riding in the UK on a warm summer's day...

What a great shot by Marta Carro, I'm guessing taken on board her other half's Vespa PX - sums up the freedom of riding a vespa very nicely...

Marta - mille grazie ; )

Sunny day on Portland

Portland TS

LOvely shot taken by Matt Brown, who I met at last year's May Veteran Vespa Club rally in Swanage.

This image was taken last Friday on top of Portland with Chesil beach stretching out to the west and the western edge of Portland harbour making for a fantastic background.

As for Matt's very nice TS125, this was supplied by Retrospective Scooters in North London and has benefited from recent upgrades including a DR177 barrel kit, varitonic 12V lighting kit, front damper and SIP Road exhaust, all carried out by Retrospective - a great package I'd say, making for a very usable scoot able to keep up with today's faster traffic with great looks of course!

Cheers for the great shot Matt ; )

Riding home from London the other week not far from Highgate, I spotted these old wooden, black painted garage doors. A nice backdrop for the scoot I thought and goes with the blog colours ; )

Beautiful film shot by Mika Kuusela taken in Berlin, you just can't replicate these lovely tones and textures on anything other than film...

I love candid shots featuring old vespas, like this great example taken by Michelle Samson in Italy.

Michelle, grazie mille for letting me feature your foto on vespamore ; )

Gelateria Vespa

'Gelateria Vespa'

Me and the vespa serving up gelati at a street party last weekend ; )


A snapshot of what was occurring in 1969 when this amazingly preserved Vespa GT125 rolled off Piaggio's Pontedera production line...

This beautiful, virtually unblemished original paint example has only covered 16,542km during the intervening 46 years and belongs to the vespista/collector/photographer behind the excellent VE8PA.CH website/blog - it is also currently for sale...

See the full set of fotos of this lovely GT125 here on VE8PA.CH where you can get in touch re buying this amazing vespa if so inclined...
