To go along with the Lambretta from yesterday here is a ’64 Vespa VBB that’s a little less expensive. The seller claims to have installed a new engine, transmission, rear hub and electronics and the rest of the bike looks clean. You’d be hard pressed to do the same work on this scooter for less than the $2300 asking price. Check this one out in Newnan, GA on Craigslist.
Based on the war time BMW R71 Dnepr built military bikes like this one for the USSR through to the 80’s. This ’62 is said to have a 650cc motor which was the first OHV engine that Dnepr built and a very cool two wheel drive system that drives the sidecar. With a reverse gear and high ground clearance these are said to be formidable off road machines. Stick your dog in the sidecar and you’ll turn heads in this for sure. Find it here in Covington, GA with offers and trades being taken but no price listed.
Here is a really nice looking Lambretta scooter found on Craigslist in Birmingham. The seller claims to have upped the original 125cc to a 150cc for a bit more umph. We love the spare tire placement and the two tone paint screams Italian style. $3600 is the asking price which isn’t crazy for one of these. The sale comes with two helmets so grab a pair of Ray Bans and someone you wouldn’t mind on the back and hit the road to the nearest café.
Here is a good looking ’69 Triumph 500 in North Carolina. $3500 seems a reasonable price considering the work that is said to have been done.
