This is a rare German GS, marketed as the GS/4 with only 2500 made. Frame, panels and the other parts were shipped to the German distributor - Vespa Ausberg GMBH and the scooters where assembled in Germany. As like other Vespas built outside Italy, Vespa Ausberg used local parts such as Hella headlights, switches, back light units and the horn. The seat was manufactured by Denfeld and all these features are unique to this scooter. Unusually for an early Vespa this has panel side indicators (also by Hella) with alloy embellishers which are operated by a handlebar switch.
This scooter has been updated with a standard P200 engine (built by us a few years ago), and therefore has 12v electrics.It also has a brand new SIP Road 2 exhaust, new SIP larger (9.5 litre) petrol tanks and front Sebac shock. There is also fitted an original legshield basket, there is the option of the customised foot pedal or swopping for an original. All these upgrades making it ideal for everyday use for a scooter that is a solid clean and straight example of a GS160.
This vintage scooter is over 40 years old and is exempt from the daily ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) charge that comes into force in London in April 2019.”
