ok, in the Mr. Vespar department. Saw this on e-bay...

a "super"?? it looks like a sprint with 8" wheels. or bits of both a super and a sprint... the wheels are hilarious. (you have to look at the side view for full comedy) "80% restored"? yikes!

Does the front fender look funny to anyone?

Come on, you guys clearly don't know badass when you see it. It's green, it has a cross on the front, and it says "vespa". So what if it's got 8" wheels despite a front fender for a 10" bike? I mean come on, it's not about function is it?

Crazy.

It's either a super with the wrong fender or a sprint with 8" wheels. but the fork also looks too long, like a sprint fork with an 8" wheel on it.

was the frame of a sprint the same as a super frame but with the smaller front fender, fork and wheels? matt? derrick?

Yes they are the same, hard to tell in the pics, but I think it's just the wrong fender, the fork looks the same as my super.
