Our new addition has FINALLY arrived!!!

I would like to take this moment to thank our mechanic for fixing up the 1970 150 Super and bringing it home to us. She’s a little worse for wear today… trying to learn to ride is quite difficult, but all in all we have managed to survive the day of stalling out.

I drive a manual trans car, so I get the concept of shifting and all that, but holy cow, old iron is really touchy. I can tell already that the yet-to-be-named Super is going to be a freaking DIVA. She’s temperamental, a bit feisty, and boy, don’t cross her. You’ll be sorry. However, if you catch her on a good evening and sweet talk her a little, she just might be kind. I just have to keep telling myself that I have to be patient and go slow with her.

I did manage to get into 2nd gear down the street, but that was after several kills and a few rounds of “1st gear only”. Anyway, there will be more to come in the trials and tribulations of learning to ride a vintage Vespa.

Until next time, here’s some pics. She’s pretty….
