Along with the rival Lambretta, the Piaggio-built Vespa mobilised an entire generation of Italians in the immediate post-war years, and would go on to become part of British youth culture in the 1960s as favourite transport of the fashion-conscious 'Mods'. Countless different versions have come and gone since, yet the Vespa of today remains recognisably related to the first one made 70 years ago. Classic? Most definitely. This Vespa combination was purchased in 2007 by the current (lady) vendor, a vicar in rural Lincolnshire, to travel around her parishes, a role it fulfilled only briefly before being supplanted by a car. Last taxed for the road to the end of July 2008, the machine has been kept in dry storage since then and started regularly, most recently earlier this year. The current odometer reading is 5,286 kilometres (approximately 3,285 miles). Offered with V5C document.
