Description

By: Eric Brockway, Peter Henshaw . 2nd Revised Edition by Peter Henshaw in June 2009

Description

When introduced to Britain in 1949, the Vespa was an entirely new type of vehicle and hugely successful — and 60 years later the stylish little scooter is still winning hearts. Eric Brockway's best-selling volume, originally published in 1993, tells the story of Vespa in Britain, and in this updated form also includes colour coverage of all the modern retro-style Vespas, from the 50cc ET4 to the GTS 250, as well as the final PX two-strokes.

The book is a tribute to the personality, individuality and style of the world-famous scooter, explored through original advertisements, publicity shots, factory pictures and numerous offbeat photographs. Celebrities and girls are well-represented on the pages but there is also plenty of technical interest to satisfy mechanically minded enthusiasts.

No-one knew more about Vespa than Eric Brockway, who joined Douglas, the British importer, at the very beginning and spent 33 years there. Following the author's death, Peter Henshaw has provided additional material for the second edition. He is a freelance journalist and contributes regularly to Twist & Go, Motorcycle News and Motorcycle Sport & Leisure.
