1975 Vespa Rally 200 for sale:
This is how it looks now. It's disassembled and ready to be restored, like it needs to be.
This is the same model and color of Sting's Vespa in Quadrophenia.
The engine is in decent shape. It started and idled fantastic when I bought it, but VIOLENTLY leapt out of third gear. So, I dropped the engine and installed a new cruciform. I put it back together and it still jumped out of gear. I lost interest.
It has the original 6V FEMSA electronic ignition. This is the European specifications model, with no premix, higher compression head, bigger headlamp.
A previous owner rode this scooter from Seattle to Sturgis and back. While in Sturgis he had the scooter signed by many motorcycle luminaries like Arlen Ness and Mike Corbin. The article was reportedly in V Twin magazine, but I don't have a copy.
Includes some Rat fink stickers.
Includes new pieces like a brand new correct Euro taillamp.
Cowls are straight!
Clear Oregon Title. I bought this at a yard sale 3 years ago and have not done anything with it except buy new parts and disassemble it. It is in pieces in my garage in NE Portland. This bike needs and deserves a full restoration. I was quoted $1500 on a full paint job.
I have all the rare Rally 200 bits, like the cowls, and the glovebox.
Price is $1600 OR BEST OFFER.
Please no hatemail on my price. They are not popping these out in Pontedera anymore.
Will consider total/partial trade for a Stella, Ruckus, other Vespa, or Lambretta, BMW or VW car. I'm a gearhead and I like those sort of things.
The worst part is some bad rust on the floor. I wish I could weld and repair this, but I can't so I'm letting it go.
I'd prefer not to ship this Vespa, but if you pay me for boxing and shipping, I could ship it anywhere. I have shipped scooters in the past.
Here's a picture of both of my Vespas. I might sell the white P Series too. Email me if interested.
This is what the Vespa looked like the day I bought it.
This will be a great Vespa for the right person. I am sad I can't give it the attention it deserves.
