Vespa Costs

The following is a list of costs that are associated directly with the Vespa maintenance, repair, improvements and Protective Clothing.

The Current Running Total:

$ 27,622.68

Obviously because of the Vespa there are many other costs such as weekend trips away including hotel meals and so on. Those costs are not here because I do not feel they are relevant.

  2. Peter, you’re a braver man than I, plus you have done mankind (meaning me) a service because my darling wife doesn’t speak moto or scooterish, and thinks that I’m obsessed. Now you’re certainly not obsessed, but I would kill to have that budget. Colour me jealous! Very nice gear too .

      My main “squeeze” loves two of my Vespa’s. The 1980 Vespa Moped, well, not-so-much. She recently told me to sell my 2013 Ducati 1199R. I have since purchased an eighty pound bag of concrete mix and am in the process of making her a pair of shoes.

    Peter…one would have to be an accountant to keep up with your additions to the scoot hobby. I would like to think that with my initial purchase of my own GTV that there is nothing else to buy. Hmmmm……..wrong???
