Thorpe, this book is one of The Motorcyclist's Library series published in the USA by Floyd Clymer by arrangement with the original publishers, Pitman Ltd. of London, England. It includes technical data, service and maintenance information and comprehensive detailed instructions for the repair and overhaul of all major and minor mechanical and electrical components, making it an invaluable resource for collectors and restorers of these classic Vespa motor-scooters. Models covered are the 125cc 152 L2 and 150cc VBA, 5VBA and the 125-150cc Standard and Sportique Rotary Valve models from 1959-1963.

This is a 'must have' reference for any Vespa enthusiast and would certainly assist in helping any potential purchaser better understand the inner workings prior to purchasing one of these classic motor-scooters.
