Yes at my 'museum' you can see the best that Vespa had to offer from the 70's and 80's, so awesome is this collection that it makes Derrick cringe. First up is the highly underrated 1974 Super 150, then a kick ass 1976 V90-vera, next the all mighty 1978 P200. Then on to the '80's with a 1983 PK50 that has been totally raced out with all the performance goodies. Lastly I have not one, but TWO PK50XLS Plurimatics, more rare than a SS90 and I have 2! A near perfect American version and a super rare European model. Also on show, 1957 CZ Manet 100S, 2001 Italjet Torpedo, 2004 Kawasaki Ninja 250 and a basement full of parts.

Admission $250 plus a case of beer, by appointment only.

For $250 it should include a Plurimatic as a parting gift.

apparently the SE Como Scooter Museum continues to add to the collection. Matty, care to elaborate? (I had trouble seeing it in the dark last night.)

Ya, it's mine. Or at least it has to be one more time before matt buys in back for less than what I'll pay him for it. Possibly, nay likely, from someone other than me. But the title will still be in his name.

The 48-Hour Rule or “You Had Your Chance" -

As a reward for a fellow sneaking new and inexpensive cylinders into the Crisis Center and also escaping any female wrath that might accrue from said purchase, the fellow may make up any story he wishes after 48 hours regarding the acquisition. In other words, she gets 48 hours to notice the purchase and complain. If she misses her window, you are home free.

“This old thing,’’ you might say, when, after a week, she finally does notice, “that thing has been here since July.’’
