1960 Vespa GS150 VS5 Original paint For Sale

Built between 59-61 the GS150 (VS5) was the final iteration of Piaggio’s first Sport Scooter, the Gran Sport. After that came the much loved GS160, but this 150cc model which was offered only in Silver was the model that vaulted Scooters from slow utilitarian vehicles on 8” wheels for shoppers...to Sporty Speed machines on 10” wheels with distinctive exhaust notes and 150cc under the rear bubbles. The GS150 dominated Scooter racing across Europe throughout the 50’s.

1960 VS5 Imported from Italy to the US many years ago, I found this truly unique example in Chicago Illinois 2016 and had her shipped to the U.K.

Aesthetically this scooter hasn’t been messed with, all paint is original with beautiful Patina. You can see ghosts of the original run-in decal and remnants of period stickers to the leg shields and rear fender. The scooter retains its original 6v electrics with the addition of a Diode used to bi pass the battery for reliability and battery failure issues commonly found on these models. The Scooter starts and runs smooth and really is a joy to ride. I would implore who ever buys this rare original example to leave it as it is, it’s just beautiful and filled with character. So if your looking for a GS to restore to showroom standard this is NOT the one for you, if it’s original you desire to own, love and enjoy look no further.

Please feel free to ask me questions, and if you require any pictures of a particular area just let me know as I could only post 6.

V5 in my name, Historic vehicle so TAX/MOT exempt
