Printed verbatim from the MMM classifieds:

62 Vespa GL150. A true classic vintage scooter. Cosmetically, challenged, runs good. Sam 952-466-2828
Someone buy it before I decide that I have a garage space for it.

I'm pretty sure some pesky Mankato-ian got it already.

Yuck. Not to mention that my two car garage has zero cars in it right now.
The only thing in there with four wheels is my lawnmower...

I worked on that blue GL about 7 years ago when Dallas Pogue had it. It was really rough. Then another guy bought it and I did a little more work on it. Then Sam bought it and I gave him crap about it. And now Peter has it.

I wonder how many people have owned that scooter. Old Vespars never "die" but that one is on it's 9th life. I think it spent its early years in Italy and it was well used.

Dallas was a Star Wars guy and an amazing prop/costume builder. He put that sticker on the legshield.

I see someone has painted some stuff white or silver? I know it needs a lot of mechanical work. Hopefully Peter will give it the love it needs!

Good call on the mech Derrick. The motor is solid after a little carb work. I had to replace the front shock/spring, the rear shock and rebuild the front fork and replace the stearing head bearings. After I welded a new fork mount to the front fender I burned off all the paint so I did a ghetto tribute to the old dealer specials with rustoleum. New zippy 1's and she drives sweet.
Oh and I finally got it titled.

I went through the motor when Dallas had it. I remember the cush gear assembly was falling a part! So it was the first time I ever had to rebuild one of those. The gear selector hardware was completely warn out. It was very sloppy. Both signs of lots of use! Also, it had a bolt screwed into the tranny breather - an old Italian trick for when the clutch side seal is blown. The body was straight but pretty beat up. I wonder what city in Italy it was from. I know Dallas rode it every day back and forth to work. I don't think he did much up keep on it after I got it running. That rear shock was super WASTED!

I think it's a cool scooter for sure. Tons of history and use on that one!

Yeah I got the feeling it's been used. When I took the fork apart half the bearings were dust and the steering head bearings rained all over my floor when I was dropping the fork. The speedo read 46k and wasn't hooked up when i got it. I still have all the import papers too.

I think the speedo has not worked since before Dallas bought it. I wouldn't be surprised if it has double the amount shown.

Here is a Star Wars costume site that Dallas worked on. I figured the Jedis might like to see this stuff. I think the whole Star Wars cult thing is weird but whatever. Cool costumes.

Dallas also had a really cool site on Twiggy. I can't find it anymore. I remember it had some great photos and art related to mods and Twiggy.

I hope Dallas is doing good. I guess he got divorced and moved away or something.
