My eyes on a Vespa

Today I did something kind of stupid... I think.

When I was over in France one of the things I thought was really cool was all of the Piaggios over there. Of course, they were the new variety and not much like the "mopeds" we have here in the states. Upon returning home I went by my local Vespa dealer to check them out.

Nice. Expensive. Still, the new ones just didn't have the mystique of those older ones you see in some of the old movies. I decided against buying one. Still, I couldn't get it out of my mind.

Ebay. I decided to just look at what might be out there. I found it alright. It is a beautiful 1964 Vespa Super. It is a 150cc scooter with - of all things - a side car. I don't know if I want to buy it. There is a reserve. I kept bidding to see what the reserve happens to be. I finally beat it. Now I am hoping that someone else will come along a out bid me! It is a nice bike but it is in Indonesia!

I still have several days before the auction ends...
