The early faro basso scooters are just beautiful, and this one is no exception. Even in Europe, these very early Vespas are becoming extremely hard to find. Prices on these have been going sky high in Europe just in the last few years, and we are not sure that we will be able to find many more as collectors are holding on to the ones they have. This is a very early model after the transition from the rod gear control linkage. The design is elegant and timeless. This scooter was restored in Italy before we acquired it, and it still looks extremely nice. Many nice original touches remain, such as the original “Vespa” stamped key and the enamel “Piaggio” badge. This is a scooter to really show off and be proud of. Not originally sold in the U.S., there are very few of these in North America. You can be sure, this is a scooter that will turn heads wherever it goes.
