1974 Vespa Rally 200
Year/Make/Model1974 Vespa Rally 200 
Description$4000 or best reasonable offer. I'm selling an unmolested, carefully-maintained Rally. It still has its original "Biancospino" paint job (with minor scratches, but no significant rust or damage), original turn signals, tractor brake light, oil metering, BBQ rack with working zipper pocket, and pretty much anything one can see walking around it looks the same as it would in 1974. Under the cowls, though, you'll find the usualmodifications to make it a reliable 1-kick highway runner: The engine was rebuilt by Scooters Originali in 2014 with new seals, flywheel bearing, rear hub bearing, spring gear bearing, selector box bearing, rebored cylinder and a new piston kit (66.7- first over), fuel line and tap, oil line and sight glass, woodruff key & clutch drive gear, new clutch cork, cruciform, & brass shim, various o-rings and rubber bits... I'll include the full invoice Gene wrote up at the time of rebuild. Everything you've heard is true. The rebuild was flawless, and it is indeed a one-kick scooter. I added both a CHT and EGT gauge, SIP Road exhaust (and jetted carefully by actually cutting up some spark plugs); I deleted the battery according to the most reliable method (see SFvsr) which believe it or not allows you to keep the turn signals, which have been converted to LEDs with the correct flasher. They work flawlessly. You cannot, however, have a horn without the battery, but it's passed inspection in NYS every year, so I wouldn't worry too much about the horn. I kept the original Rally horn to maintain appearances. What else? Hmmm. I mounted (discretely, and without irreversible shenanigans) a Rotopax auxilliary gas can under the BBQ rack. Just in case. It's got a Prima bag, SIP necessaries bag, and a rack on the front. Tires are in excellent shape, with about 500-550 miles on 'em. Comes with a $#!+load of extra parts and tools -- this is my last scooter, so Femsatronic CDI, carb stuff, fuel tap wrenches, a bunch of cables... anything you'd want for a cross-country trip is included. I'm an hour north of NYC, in the Hudson Valley. You're welcome to take it for a ride with a valid MC endorsement and a deposit of $2K in cash.
