Scooter Center Cologne has recently added this fine looking Vespa Wideframe catalogue to their range of almost collector edition literature. The 75-page full-colour catalogue features the latest products for these once almost neglected but stunningly beautiful early Vespa models.
There’s been a resurgence for the Wideframes over the last couple of years, is that down to firms like Scooter Center/BGM/Pinasco and many others concentrating on these forgotten machines or is it because scooterists have started to look outside the usual vintage models? Either way, it’s good news because it means there are loads of new goodies out to improve not only the lowly-powered engine but also the lacklustre brakes, spongy suspension and outdated electrics.

New brake drums
Scooter Center have had the brake drums remade in Germany for models like the Douglas Vespas and Faro Basso. Ulf from SC told us “They are produced here in our industrial estate and improve the braking by 100%. The feedback we get is just 100% positive and it is unbelievable how well these old scooters can stop now they have a proper brake drum, especially now they’re reaching 16 hp if Pinasco kitted.”
The Wideframe catalogue covers the curvaceous models made from the beginning of production in 1946 through to the last of the wide frames in 1961. It also gives a full breakdown (with images) of the models made by each manufacturer, including Piaggio, Hoffman, Messerschmitt, A.C.M.A, Motovespa, Sears Roebuck & Co, Douglas and M.I.S.A.
Packed with lovely photographs of vintage Vespa porn, as well as plenty of 21st Century bling it’s worth getting a copy if you have an interest, or own one of these timeless classics. It includes chapters and parts for the following…
If you’d like a free copy (or one of the other Scooter Center catalogues pictured above), visit this link and Scooter Center will send you a free copy. The only downside (if you’re foreign) is that the text is in German. We’ll also have a competition next week to win one of their new SC branded PX screens.
