Black Vespa S. 150, 2013 BV 350, Lots of Vintage Vespas,
It was a 1980 Vespa P200 that I bought off a friend of a friend. It was the summer after high school (1997) and a friend suggested that we all buy Vespas. I had no clue what in the hell they were but managed to be the first guy in our circle of friends to come across one. Like bunny rabbits for sale at the Santee Swap Meet, one turned into two, two turned into four, and so on. The rest is history.
Since I was 18
I'm the General Manager of Vespa Motorsport in San Diego, California. We are also run the ecommerce site, Scooterwest.com, the premier on-line parts source for all things Vespa. Both businesses operate out of our shop on Pacfifc Highway.
