Lazy sunny afternoon with a '51 Faro Basso


'51 Faro Basso



Spent the day with a couple of esteemed VVC (Veteran Vespa Club) friends - early start leaving West Herts and arriving in Brentwood around 10am on my 'old faithful' orange Motovespa.

First up was some urgent reconstruction surgery to my exhaust, carried out by Warren. It had been noticeably louder the last week and was breaking up after 4 years of heavy use. A new, replacement SIP Road 2.0 pipe I think is needed..

While Warren got to work I got reacquainted with his beautiful, original paint 1951 Faro Basso..

After some fotos and a catch up over a few cups of coffee, we headed out for an afternoon's riding through some lovely Essex countryside and villages...

... Warren being the obliging sort of chap he is, also let me have a quick spin on his low light..

After bidding Warren & Roger adios, I rode back in the warm, late afternoon sun along leafy lanes and B-roads, arriving home in Hertfordshire around seven.

A great day's riding on old vespas and catching up with some classic vespa loving friends. I used last six frames of my current film on the Faro Basso, check back to see these in near future..

If classic, geared vespas are your thing, the Veteran Vespa Club is not a bad place to be...
