I have one, it is a lot of fun when it runs, which is not very often.

It would scare me shitless to attempt 55 mph on my 8" tires though. I have had it up to 50 though, downhill, with an 80 mph wind behind me.

I had one with a Rally 200 engine in it bored out and a Polini kit, it was a blast did about 75-80 top speed. But I just cant get into those anymore I got real burned out working on them for years. After a while you want more power, and a Vespa or Lambretta didnt cut it.

The thing about a Vespa is there's a lot of hop up options. The one I bought my soon-to-be-wife as a wedding present has to actually be de-tuned, because it came with the full race package, which I know she can't handle.

Keep in mind there's only so fast you'll want to be doing on those little wheels.

You think you're burnt out? Talk to Josh about Vespas. Oh, and ask him about socks, cowboy hats, and lightsaber battles.
