Matchanu, I just have add this, we knew you team guys had penis envy of all of us Force Marines when we were around each other, we gave you guys the benefit of the doubt though, due to shrinkage from the cold water of the SD Bay.

Start off small and affordable, rebuild it and make it pretty, sell up and buy up, repeat.

Built my girl from the ground up.

This is the first machine I've ever done all the work and maintenance on . It's been a learning experience and I've loved (almost) every minute of it.

My favorite mods are the 120 db compressor driven air horn I hid under the tail section and the after market penski rear shock. Damn thing always ran like a raped ape but making her handling and braking world class has added the most to the riding experience.

I ride her every day it's possible in Boston weather .. and some days I probably shouldn't. She has never let me down.

Im looking into buying a 1993 Yamaha VMAX so she might have a sister soon.

This is my regular commuter and grocery hauler. There's a '75 Triumph Trident T160 in the garage that desperately needs to be refurbished and put back on the road. And there's a pretty long list of previous rides. I think my all time favorites were my '78 Honda SOHC 750Four and the '01 Triumph Sprint ST 955i. But the wife likes this one, and Momma should be happy.

Thanks! Pretty much every time I ride, when I want to go fast it does, and makes me do this:

Ya'll can buy your fancy chrome machines, every piece of this scooter has been fabricated or built by me to include the engine.

When you can figure out how to double the horsepower of one of your Harleys (not with bolt on, but custom engineering and fabrication and trial and error) let's talk.
Still a Vespa tho

Old School.... Bought this bike in 1976 while stationed in Charleston, SC. Sold it three years later right before I got out of active duty. I found it on Ebay four years ago. SN matched and it still had the my initials scratched in under the seat!! Still runs like a scalded dog just takes longer for her to warm up!

My next door neighbor's dad when I was a kid had one of these, it was the first street bike I rode on the back of and I still remember how damned fast it was.

He was a VN vet, rode the piss out of anything on two wheels and we'd watch him bring the front wheel of that up and go through all the gears riding a wheelie. To say he could ride was an understatement.

KidA, was the Vespa picture a joke, or do you really ride one?

I used to bet beers for the night that I could do 0-60 in first gear without redlining it. Never lost that bet! Many a weekend night doing 130-140 on I-26 at 2:00am headed back to the ship drunk and fucked up.
