1967 Douglas Vespa 49cc
Reg. no. REU 235E
Frame no. V5SAIT 25929
Engine no. 26144
In 1951 the financially troubled motorcycle manufacturer Douglas started production of Piaggio licensed Vespa scooters in Bristol, with a market to include some Commonwealth countries as well as the UK. Douglas was more than a simple assembly plant for parts imported from Piaggio, many of the models made by Douglas had a high percentage of content manufactured by Douglas. When production ceased in 1965, Douglas remained the UK importer for Vespa scooters until its demise in 1982. According to our vendor, this stylish pink example has seen little use over the past 15 years or so, but recently he has had the scooter running and managed to register it. In good overall condition, this Douglas Vespa is offered with a V5c.
