Outstanding shot!! Excellent image of my German vespista pal Leo on board Ralf Jodl's gorgeous blu pavone SS180. I got to play on this beautiful Super Sport when I visited Ralf, Leo & S.I.P. Scootershop in Landsberg, Bavaria in 2012, see here

Check out SIP's full Abrollern album here fotos by Ralf Jodl.
Yours truly captured by Leandro Leanza during last Monday's visit to Retrospective Scooters, see previous post Nice shot below also by Leandro, of this 50 Special with round headset fitted, replacing the square original headset. I would have kept the square headset myself but this is what the customer wanted. I took this lovely light blue 50 Special a few years ago in town, see here Loving the moody black & white vespa parts shot, I think this is great!
More of Leandro's photography on his Flickr photostream here also if you're on Facebook check out Leandro's Vespa - Sig. PX blog.
I'll post my own 35mm film shots from Monday's Retrospective visit with Leandro & Stefania when I finish my current film and get it developed.

Recently been in touch with the owner of this beautiful, rare Cushman GS150 VS5, which came about as said discerning owner just ordered a copy of my latest Retrospective Scooters book I actually shot this original paint GS on 35mm film back in May this year, when it was in for some maintenance at Retrospective Scooters. I really wish I'd seen this before completing the second edition of my vespa book, as it would have made a great inclusion; definitely one for the next book ...
The owner tells me that apparently only five hundred GS150 VS5s were badged as Cushman for the American market and seemingly as few as eight or less are currently now over here in the UK. This example was originally sold by the Boston Vespa Company, located off Commonwealth Avenue.
So nice to see this hasn't been stripped, shotblasted and re-painted when it's perfect as it is and retains its unique history and provenance.
I hope to get some more film shots of this lovely GS at some point in the near future but in the meantime you can see the shots I took earlier this year - here
Thanks to the owner for these photos and details and of course for letting me feature his GS on the vespamore blog ; )
