1967 Other Makes Sprint 150 on 2040-motos
Vespa Sprint 150 description
*price negotiable - though I've invested close to $3,000 fixing it up*
I am parting ways with my precious 1967 Vespa Sprint 150 which has been excellently maintained and upgraded. This is a VLB model with the highly sought-after and more rare, trapezoidal headlight. She's a beaut! This scooter has the old "one-up, three-down" shifting and being as old as it is, it requires learning the small idiosyncrasies of clutch/shift/throttle balance (like any scooter/motorcycle) but once you do.....watch out! It hauls a$$.
It has a rebuilt engine (Malossi kit) which makes it a 166.6 now and a newer Sito Plus P125X sport exhaust that let's it hit 75MPH pretty easily, maybe more - the needle gets buried after 120km/hr and it still pulls. It is a premix engine needing at least a 4% mixture which keeps the spark plugs clean yet still delivers great power. It's easy to measure the bit of oil to pour in the gas tank - I'll include a measuring cup specifically for the mixture. You'll see the upgraded super corsa sport seat which is more sleek and sits two more comfortably than the stock double seat. The tires are newer sport tires and have great grip. On some of the chrome pieces (easily replaceable) there is light rust from living by the beach for so long but it's in great shape otherwise. Comes with the spare tire and storage pouch on it. It also has a built-in, lockable saddle/cowling storage container.
It is registered and insured and has been since I first bought it in 2007. I have service records since then and almost all work has been done at Bartels' Route 66 Riders on Lincoln. I'll even throw in the Haynes manual for it and two books on tuning/maintaining vintage Vespas. (I've moved onto my early 70s motorcycles now and need space, sadly)
It only had 1,400 kilometers on it when I first bought it. I put another 2,600kms on it or so.

In 1966, Vespa’s latest model, the Super Sprint 90, combined a small, lightweight body, with a 125cc engine. At the time, it was Vespa’s premier sporty and athletic model. Today, Vespa is bringing the Sprint name back with two new models, the Sprint 125 and Sprint 50.Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0700
Piaggio announced new updates for the Vespa GTS, adding anti-lock brakes, a traction control system and its new Enahnced Sliding Suspension system, bringing the company’s latest scooter technologies to the largest, most powerful Vespa model. The new additions on the GTS should not be a surprise, as they have already been adopted by other new Vespa models such as the 946. Piaggio was the first company to introduce ABS and ASR traction control system for scooters, and the updated GTS will now receive the technology as a factory-installed option.
