The ol’ girl…
This blog says it is about life, football and Vespas. So far I have made no mention of the fact that I drive a 1978 Piaggio Vespa P150x. She is my pride and joy and I love skipping through the traffic on the ol’ girl!
Here in SA, Vespas are few and very far between, so they are quite a novelty when you see one. Everyone stares at the bike, whether it is parked or just when I am shooting past them in the traffic.
Recently she has had a bit of trouble. The clutch cable gave up on me and she needs a new cable housing. That is one hell of a job. I am sure there is a simple way of doing it, but I don’t know what it is so she is going into CAVA motors in Johannesburg, this week. There, she will get all the TLC that she needs.
Just to show you what she looks like :
