Douglas Vespa scooter (rod model)
« on: 03 Apr 2006 at 18:19 »
Hi everybody.

I hope that it is ok with this post. I am aware that this a motorcycle site, but I hope I will be forgiven  :)

I have recently purchased a Douglas Vespa, rod model. I believe it is from 1952 or 1951. Unfortunately it is missing some parts including headlamp, correct engine light switch and speedo + speedodrive.
If anybody can help with these parts or information on where to obtain such parts I will be much grateful.

I am living in Denmark, and that doesn´t make my search to easy.

Thanks

Tobias

Hi Tobias,
Your posting is welcomed - we don't hear enough about the Douglas venture with Vespa - have you tried the Vespa clubs for your parts - try a Google search for 'Vespa clubs' - it returns many clubs throughout the world.
