I would enlist(or buy a patch)
Following this with great interest and envy.
Sold my 75,but kept this one.It’s a 67 C201.
Currently my 2 car garage has 3 carsMy ComutacarMy 1950 Dodge 2 coupe ( my wife is the 4th generation older)My wife’s carAnd my Vespa scooter and 2 mopeds2 more mopeds in the shed.Ok ok, I know I have a problem, but I am ok with it.
I just bought it last Fall.It is still lead acid, there is a trend towards converting to lithium or using batteries from other electric cars. The leaf batteries are quite common.
When they changed from Citicar to Comutacar the safety requirements changed.The bumpers were extended and it now holds 4 batteries, 6 in the rear.
I vote LeftGreat thread, thanks for posting.
I agree that for your introduction to this adventure that the Vespa is the best choice.But, given the opportunity I would buy both.
Thanks for both responses.Between the 2, I was able to sort out both the answer and the proper question.I was actually referring to the rectifier. (My Bad)My Qt is a 79 and from what I can sort out (please correct me if I am wrong) is that the rectifier is all I have.Thanks again for the picture and the video.

I think based on the wire length, it must be behind the battery somewhere.thanks
I am trying to sort out items in the battery location.I know where the battery goes, I figure the CDI slides into the plastic part.I see on the parts list there is a bolt for the Regulator.I cannot figure out how that mounts.It is a 79 so it only has the diode type regulator.Could someone take or post a picture of how it all fits together.?Thanks
That paint job on the seat turned out quite nice.👍
Thanks for checking.That was kinda my thoughts as well.Just thought I would ask.
Will a PW50 lever work and activate the brake light switch?I can find PW50 levers in Canada, but nothing for my QT50.The QT50 ones I see on EBay the shipping is more than I want to pay.Thanks
A friend of mine gave it to me a couple of years ago.It was his when he was a kid, hadn’t ran in over 25 years.Motor was stuck, soaked it for a couple months and it popped free.Did a general going thru it and it runs like a beauty.
Welcome from next door, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.I’ve got a running 78 Vespa Si, and a couple of Works in Progress.Working on a 79 Yamahopper and a 76(?) Hercules (Moppett) waiting to be resurrected.
I have used a 50/50 mixture of Acetone and ATF with great results.
Just got back from a 120 mile 1 way trip to pick up a Yamaha Noped.
Whether it goes, 60 or 16 mph it looks awesome.
Looks like someone got a great deal.Sweet looking ride.
I just sold my 75 CT90 to free up some garage space and some cash.I still have my 67 C201.
I found a Sales brochure on eBay from the Uk.It arrived today and going thru it, I confirmed that it is aSi Europa version.Options were-spoked wheels or the more familiar snowflakes- smaller seat like mine or the longer seat-dual rear shocks or the internal rear shock
So, after reading Ike’s reply and doing a bit more searching thru the older posts I decided to jump right in and see what I could discover.Laid on the floor and looked up into the forks, sure enough there was a bolt threaded in, was able to remove it.Oil seeped out, removed the oil fill bolt and oil seeped out faster.Used the blow tip for my air compressor and blew more oil out.Oil was quite milky
1978 Vespa SiLooking at adding/replacing oil in front shocks.If I remove the bottom plug, will this drain shock oil completely?Is there a way to refill shock oil without dis-assembling the front shock completely?Or, am I not understanding this correctly?Should I raise front end and drain the oil and then re fill until oil is level with plug?ThanksNeil
I did not convert it to a single speed.It came with those covers.From the research I have done, it is a non import moped.It has no brake light which is different than US models.
Thanks for the quick reply.That’s the answer I was hoping for.
