The 1956 Vespa GS is alive!

The red 1956 Vespa GS 150 (VS2) is no longer - red. The original silvermetallic paint is back, sort of. Unfortunately so is the filler applied by the former owner who choose to paint it red. Call me conservative if you like!
Unfortunately some filler on the side cowls and front shield spoils the work. Otherwise the original paint looks okay if you go for that worn and original look.
Maybe it will become some sort of "rat scoot"? I think red wheels looks pretty cool.

A red Vespa Gran Sport? No, thanks...

The paint stripper is beginning to work on the red, and orange...

Goey! Messy!

Half there?

Filler and no paint at all...

Was this really such a good idea?

Hey, the wheels are red! Whaddaya mean by that?


  1. A VS2 is worthy of a real professional paint job. Maybe silver body, but red wheels? If you have red wheels, you really need white wall tires!

  2. You're right Paul! But it won't get a proper paint job right now. White walls? Maybe I'll start looking...

    I would like a Gs150 someday. Tough to find a seller that is willing to crate and ship.
