I can't hold out much longer waiting for a Lambretta, so this is for sale so I can try and fund one:

 

1987 Vespa T5 Classic, 125 manual.

10 months MOT, it's done all of about 10 miles probably since the last test!

It had about £235 spent on it for MOT inc. new shocks and tyres.

Looks a bit rough but goes as well as ancient 2 stroke Italian scooter would do, I suppose

The speedo doesn't work (something about the drive where it goes in the speedometer, I think he said) and the headstock screw things are missing. Passed an MOT like that though, and you're fairly unlikely to get lifted for going too fast.

One thing you don't have to fret about is the battery, because these ones don't have one.

I think the engine is a standard 125 affair, a decent 166/172 kit and a nice exhaust would help it along quite nicely.

Here's my one and only picture of it to help* advertise this fine machine

I would like £1,500 ono (or £1,395) for it and could possibly deliver in the back of my van or Zafira for a fair fee, or locally free of charge. I'm in Chester.

 

I honestly don't know too much about scooters, so feel free to check the fuck out of it. Please hurry so I can buy something worse.

I really don't need to start thinking about this right now...

Oops too late. Could you confirm frame and engine numbers? There's a hell of a lot of them kicking about without the T5 engine in...

I've messaged you all the details, Jacky. Not trying to hide anything, just didn't fancy stating full frame and engine numbers across the internet! I didn't check the numbers when I bought it, I just trusted the seller so unsure if engine is original or a PX one and not savvy enough to know. I'll have a look at weekend though and see what it says on the engine itself.

Actually, thinking about it it's a 1992 or 1993. 'K' reg seems to ring a bell.

The only other Vespa I've really ridden was my old TX200 which obvs felt a fair bit quicker, but that was a few years ago.
I take it it'll be devalued a bit if it turns out to be a PX engine?

The T5 engine was an alloy cyclinder with much bigger ports and a different exhaust etc.. it's supposed to be very similar in performance to a 200 albeit delivered through wringing it's neck..

Not sure how a tx200 would compare, I think it might just be a Spanish motovespa version of the p200.

It would defo be worth less without a T5 engine but fingers crossed man!

My T5 has the same top speed as my Px200, but it gets there quicker thanks to its much larger transfer port area. PX200 is far better at dragging fat people up hills though.:)

The T5 is the only classic Vespa that actually rides like something from this century. The rest are out-dragged and out-handled by a horse and cart (and please don't bother me with how your big-bore Lambretta can top the ton either, because we all know the lifespan of such devices is measured in minutes).

 

If you must ride round going 'ring ding ding a fucking ding' everywhere in a cloud of foul-smelling fog then this is the device to do it on.

 

Do not paint, GLWTS etc.

Headset is off a later bike,think but don't quote me that the T5 had a digital speedo which would explain why this one doesn't work.
I'm so tempted to go back down the vespa route but they are so dear for what they are now.

Can't remember seeing a digital clock even on older Vespas, for some reason I have it my head they were only on LMLs and may be the new PX125/150.

The first T5s in 1985 had a digital rev counter, but the fact that it was changed to an analogue one pretty soon after, suggests that it was a bit pony.

The Cosa had an analogue rev counter and speedo one on top of t'other.  I always liked the look of those for some reason.  Like a Chinese copy of a Vespa from a time before the Chinese started copying Vespas.

Good man for aspiring to a superior Lambretta ;). Have you tried advertising the T5 with local scooter club? Probably not relevant to your situation, but it should be a piece of piss to sell in a couple of months time when the shiz weather does one.

Yeah, I will do Tezzer. In an ideal world I'd have your Lammy, I just haven't got the folding I'm afraid. The one I've got my eye on is a 1960's Spanish Li 150, probably the only end of the market I can get near to at the minute!

 

My TX200 had a rev counter and fuel gauge I seem to recall. It also had an 'ordinary' speedo which I was reading 60mph on when HGVs were overtaking me with ease on the M53 :(

Seriously, I wasn't knocking it. It's easily as good as any modern 12hp step-thru, and would be even better without the twist-grip gear change.

Commuting through London, I spend most of my time at the lights next to modern twist and go's, and it's flipping mental how much quicker they are away from the lights.. they're just instantly in their broad power band whilst I'm working like a nutter keeping mine on song.

Agree the twist grip is bonkers, outdated and inefficient, but still wouldn't swap it for the world when my mood is right....

And probably reads +/-2000rpm either side of the truth because Veglia.

Lols, Never really thought about this before, but have veglias in the X1/9. Inverse rev counter and bouncing erratic speedo FTW!
