Vespa GS 160 MK1 1962

The GS 160 mk 1 is a unique Vespa in that it had the rear toolbox that no other Vespa had , this was the new design for Vespas new improve 160 engine .

Still piston ported and a torquey ride , the GS mk1 was a complete overhaul on what was the top model from Piaggio the GS150 .

The mk was only made for 1 year 1962 and there was only around 30,000 made compared to 600,000 of the standard models , so very rare and rarer still to have survived all these years , probably less than half made might be still around .

This MK is an older restoration and might require a revamp or ride it as is for now , it has the 12v ignition and lighting upgrade but still the original engine .

Please note the scooter currently runs but we have not ventured into any further work on it unless requested to do so, see our secondary pricing catagory.

Our pricing

We like to give our customers flexibility when buying a vintage scooter, as soon as we get bikes in we give them a full check over then put them up for sale in their current condition. This allows customers to buy them as they are if they wish (and perform any restoration or maintenance work themselves) or work with us to create their dream bike.  Below are our typical restoration service levels and work that you can expect to get.

sold as is

These bikes are in the original condition we got them in. The scooter might be an old barn find or a previously restored bike in great condition and ready to roll (or anything in between).

level 1 restoration

This focuses on a mechanical overhaul on the scooter and perhaps some essential cosmetic work. We will do what is required to get it  up and running reliably and to pass an MOT.  It will be a great runner and something to invest time in if you wish.

complete restoration

This is what we are famous for.  A full scooter restoration involves bare metal strip down, repair and respray, a total mechanical over haul of the engine, carb, gearbox and forks as well as all new trim. Like a brand new scooter and to your specification
