New Web Site

17/05/2017

Please be aware that we launched this site on the 1st May 2017. Although it has been well tested beforehand, please be patient if there are any glitches needing to be dealt with. The Forum does not presently accept images(photos) we will offer this shortly.

Also please be patient with registrations for the Member’s section. All applications have to be dealt with manually so could take a few days, but we will do our best to be prompt.

The site is now https secure.

Profile pictures can now be uploaded. Go to Forum/My Profile/Account/Avatar/Upload an Avatar (Profile picture)

Regarding the old Forum, we regret that the old site worked on a bespoke system where it has been impossible to migrate the content.

As of the 17th May the e mail forwarder system has failed. This was still working via the old web site whilst we structured a new forwarder system. This is almost done by our tech guy, so the problem should soon be resolved.

Vespa’s for Sale

Following the sad passing of our Vespa enthusiast and friend John Davies we have been asked by his son Neil to let members of the Veteran Vespa Club and The Vespa Club of Britain know of the sale of John’s immaculate Vespa collection. Anyone member interested should go to the Forum FOR SALE & WANTED section for further information.

The GS 160 is still for sale as at 6th May.

IMPORTANT FOR RIDERS VINTAGE VESPA

We understand that w.e.f. January 2017  the major petrol companies increased the amount of ethanol in their petrol from 5% to 10%. This can have a detrimental effect on the  rubber and plastic components of our bikes. We suggest that you use Premium fuels and/or any appropriate additives.

2018

Summer. Southern Ireland. Either 7th-10th June or 21st -24th June

The rally in southern Ireland has been postponed until 2018. There are two reasons. 1. Members were suggesting that it would be a choice between Lake District and Ireland in 2017. 2.we have reconsidered and feel it would be better to position the event one week earlier or later than World Vespa Days in Belfast in 2018.
