Found this, thought it was neat:

There were "smallframe" Vespas built from '63-'84 (possibly later) and "largeframe" bikes, but I'd never seen one as large at the red one in the photo set. Might be hard to kickstart by onesself!
I'm not an addict...

me too love history on scooters
presently enjoy riding a Ruckus and a Super 9. Tinkering with a Riva 180 and a couple of old Puch SV's. In the off season I enjoy a 1999 Polaris Indy 600 XLT Touring and a 2014 Artic Cat Prowler side by side
