This is an early 50’s Vespa Faro Basso. These scooters have a style and charm that is unmatched. Riding one is like taking a step back in time. They are simple machines, but certainly their elegance lies in the melding of form and function that is uniquely Italian. In the early 50’s, the scooter market was very competitive in Italy, and Piaggio made changes to their scooters virtually every model year. This ‘51 has some of the hallmarks of the early designs - most notably the open motor cowling and exposed motor fan cover. It is a very interesting design feature that was deleted on later versions. We think it really draws the eye to the motor, and accentuates the curves of the body. This scooter has undergone a high quality restoration in Italy before our acquisition, and it presents very well. The paint is extremely nice, and all of the details look very correct. This is a scooter that you can display with pride, and ride with pleasure.
