Hi--I saw your message and pics of the pair of Vespa Ciao's. They look great!
I was able to buy what I think is the deluxe model in blue at a local yard sale (Tea, SD, USA) for $65.00. I'm not sure of the year, but I have the VIN #'s by year so will look it up soon.
It was in great shape and has been a ton of fun as it ran fine at first, but now we're having trouble starting it. The local bike shops aren't keen to work on it. When we ask how to tune it up, they tell us to change the spark plug. Well..ok, but seems the carb is sucking too much air as well. So we'll continue our quest for a bike tech who won't laugh when we tell them what it is. They just don't seem to appreciate these fun little mopeds. Thanks for letting me visit about my sweet little "Blue". Lori
