An old Vespa Club member

I got some pictures from an old member of the Vespa Club Sverige (Sweden). Pictures of his membership cards, from 1965 to 1972. First he lived in the centre of Sweden and then he moved up north to the town of Umeå.
The photo below is from a trip he made to Germany in 1966, when he was 17 years old, on his 1961 Vespa 125 Popolino (VNS2), a special model for Sweden for 16-year olds and under 75 kg (the Vespa...).
He travelled with a friend and the poor scooter had a heavy load; tools, tent, sleeping bags, kitchen utensils, spare tanks for petrol and oil, spare wheel etc.
He claims it reached 80 kph with no wind, 90 kph slipstreaming after a lorry. He traveled like this through Europe during two summers.
