Piaggio Vespa - My First Bike

Look what Craig bought for me.
Vespa VBA aged somewhere between 1958 and 1960 according to the vehicle identification number.
Original colour....there is plenty of time to decide whether I'm keeping it but....
I'm thinking red with black and white cow hide seat and white wall tyres....
There is a bit of polishing, some seal replacing and part sourcing yet......
But I love her, right down to her pitted chrome parcel rack.
I wonder if the Italian Motorcycle Club will let me join?!
