Maybe not everyone’s cup of tea regarding transport, but interesting nonetheless we feel.

It’s always interesting to learn what scooter shops did in days gone by to attract customers, and here’s an insight to 1971.
Roy of Hornchurch in Essex were a Lambretta dealer through to the 1980s but in 1971 to sell the then latest Grand Prix model, they offered potential customers a tuned top end, big carb, lightweight panelwork, the promise of a forthcoming 5-speed gearbox…. And a welcoming cup of coffee for all!

vespa USA brochure from the 70s
It sounds weird for us Italians to see Piaggio mopeds ( Ciao and Bravo) marketed in the USA under the brand name of Vespa. Of course here the Vespa is just the scooter and both Vespa and mopeds were marketed under the Piaggio brand ( Piaggio Vespa, Piaggio Ciao. etc…)

If you’ve got a Vespa PX125 or 150 – or indeed any other largeframe Vespa with such an engine – and you want an aftermarket exhaust that shouts, ‘look at me’, then look at this!

For those that didn’t know, Innocenti issued a licence for Lambretta scooters to be manufactured in Spain and production there continued long after it ceased in Italy, finally coming to a halt around 1989.
This advertisement is one of our favourites from the Spanish concern, Serveta, dating from the early to mid-1970s.
