Transportation, 1946

Vespa motor scooters are introduced in Italy to provide cheap if noisy transportation. Aircraft maker Enrico Piaggio, whose works at Pontadera were destroyed by Allied bombers, has had his chief engineer Corradino d'Ascanio design the scooter to give him a product with which to resume production, and he calls it by the Italian name for "wasp."

In the 10 years I've been motorcycling it has been my pleasure to have owned these bikes:

1972 HONDA CB100        GREAT BIKE      BOUGHT NEW      STOLEN
1974 HONDA CL360        A DOG           BOUGHT USED     TRADED IN
1976 SUZUKI GT500B      FINE MOUNT      BOUGHT NEW      SOLD
1978 VESPA GRANDE 50    COMFORTABLE     BOUGHT NEW      STOLEN
197? VESPA CIAO 50      FAST            BOUGHT USED     STOLEN
1973 GUZZI ELDORADO 850 CLASSY          BOUGHT USED     TRADED IN
1978 GUZZI AUTO 1000    TORQUEY         BOUGHT USED     SOLD
1978 YAMAHA SR500       SLIM            BOUGHT USED     STILL HAVE

I have always done all my own work and can give advice to owners of the above models.

I'm considering buying something new this year. I'm looking into YAMAHA XV920 (leftovers still available)
BMW ST80 (street version of monoshock model)
Any advice from owners or riders of same would be apreciated.
