Vespa Piaggio SI

My neighbor has a 1980 Vespa SI that she’s kept in her garage and hasn’t ran for around 15 years. It’s in beautiful shape and all parts are there and original . She use to ride it but family came on and she lost interest. What can anyone tell me about this bike ? I told her I’d try and get it running.

Re: Vespa Piaggio SI

same pretty much as any other moped, or vespa moped.

Re: Vespa Piaggio SI

I built one for my dad to ride, they are fun bikes. Agreed with pat similar to the other Vespa mopeds.

What do you want to know about it?

You need to tell us about it in order to help you get it running. Have you tried to start it? Is there 15 year old gas in it?

If gas was left in the tank, you’ll need to address that before you even think about trying to start her up. Clean the carb and Install a new spark plug. Put fresh premix in the cleaned out tank and fire her up. (edited)
