early this year, mang vic, the gentleman from whom i bought my px150 from, was parking his vespa somewhere in san fernando, la union when someone approached him saying that his father-in-law has a scooter just like his vespa parked in their sala, albeit, non-running.

a day after selling his vespa to me, mang vic drove all the way to santa, ilocos sur to buy up that particular scooter sight unseen.

he was kind of disappointed to see that it wasn't a px after all but something older.  mang vic bought the scooter just the same.

i first saw the scooter last week and after researching the serial numbers (yes, it has registration papers dating back to 1979), i found out that it was a GS 160 Series II.


here it is, out of the baul...

no, he just invited me over to take a look at it.  he just wanted to have its model identified. i also gave him na pdf files of its service manual.

is this an old vigano rack?  its footpegs have a deeply embossed vigano logo on them.

Ay-ayatenka!!!

i see that your forays into ilocandia have borne fruit!  :-*


the side mirrors are found in the glove box, together with an old oiler thingy and a canteen. blast from the past talaga.  wait till you see the packet where the original owner put the registration papers.

CONGRATS, repa!  Hindi mo talaga pinalampas ito, ah!  I don't blame you  ;)

In my opinion, the GS is the most elegant Vespa of all and if you look at it from behind with the cowls on...ayayay...it's the sexiest, too!  8)
