    My new scooter. A 1988 Vespa T5 MK1 152 polini with a 1990 Taffspeed exhaust. Very Happy
    Bits of surface rust, but nothing a bit of TLC can do.

    Yeah, I'm really tempted to give her a proper go! A hell of a lot different from the PK.
    Yeah, I'm hoping to do a hell of a lot more rallies now that I have the T5. I'm hoping to do Scarborough, I like Scarborough. Smile

    Out of curiosity, will a PX front rack fit a T5 MK1?

    I thought so, I don't see any reason why it shouldn't... what about a rear rack? Because I'm thinking with it being a square tail

    You will quickly find that owning a mk1 gets fucking infuriating when you try to find spares or accessories. Bits are "hard to find" (read: expensive)

    It become hard work when you are after any thing to do with the headset, engine or the spaure tail. So basically every thing to do with it being a T5
