1973 VESPA SUPER (BM-264)
This is one cool scooter. No question about it. This is the kind of scooter that you used to see all over the place in the 80’s and 90’s. A well loved scooter, that was still largely in original condition, but with some cool personal touches. This one checks all the boxes. It still wears its original yellow paint, which is one of the best 70’s colors, in our opinion. It also has some tasteful and useful accessories. The front rack is a nice one, which sits close to the legshields. The basket is an original 70’s accessory, that is actually very handy. On the inside of the legshields, the scooter sports some fun stickers and magnets, which can be removed, if they are not to your taste.
This scooter is one of the “early” US market Supers. These are really nice. They have the automatic oil injection system, so you don’t need to mix oil in the gas tank with every fill-up. They also have a battery for extra power to run the horn and lights. However, the electrical system on these is still quite simple. This is also the last year of the really nice script badges, while the next year had squared-off block font badges. This is also the last year before US regulations required turn signals, which were largely ineffective and ugly on the Vespas of this era.
The Super was a continuation of the VBB that had come before it. By this point, Piaggio had pretty much perfected the two-port 150cc motor design. These scooters are pretty indestructible with basic care and maintenance. This is the daily-ride you’ve been looking for.
