From 1950, the Vespa was built inder licence in Germany by Hoffmann of Lindof, near Dusseldorf. After 1955, production was instead organised at the Messerschmitt works Augsburg in Bavaria. Two model were offered, the 150 Touren and the 150 GS. It is interesting to note that Messerschmitt had a good reputation in the aeronautical industry, just like Piaggio. The Vespa was exported to Germany after 1956.

The Vespa models marketed in Belgium came out of the M.I.S.A. factory at Jette, near Brussels. Production ran from 1954 to 1962 with 125 and 150 cc version of the GS series being offered. The Belgian Vespa was initially distributed by Bevelux, with an organisation extending into Holland and Luxemburg. There were over 150 sales outlets, but Vespas could also be purchased at a number of major stores in Brussels including: Bon Marche’, Galeries Anspach, Innovation, Grand magasins de la Bourse and Cado Radio.

France – ACMA
The Vespa was built under licence by A.C.M.A. in its factory at Fourchambault. Two models were offered, the 125 and the 125 GL. In contrast with Pontedera’s 150, the A.C.M.A. version was fitted with an engine derived from that of the 125 and had different bore and stroke dimensions.However, the most interesting A.C.M.A. model was the military Vespa. The project was initiated in 1953 when the French army decided to replace its now obsolete American Cushman scooters that dated from the Second World War.

The Vespa's success was not confined to Italy. The scooter also became an extremely popular vehicle elsewhere, with a huge folowing, especially in Europe. Many manufactures attempted to compete with Pontedera on their local markets with model of all shapes and sizes, but without success. Whether those manufactures were called BSA or Triumph (in England), Peugeot or Motobecane (in France), NSU or Zundapp (in Germany), not one managed to produce a scooter to rival the Italian model.

Tokyo Mods Graffiti 1981>2005
Review By Leonardo Flores
While looking for books to build up my Japanese 1960’s library, I came across Tokyo Mods Graffiti 1981>2005. Published by Poizun Editors in June 2005, this 128pg book follows the inception and growth of the Tokyo Mod scene from its early days up to when the book was published.
The Japanese Mod scene has always fascinated me like no other Mod scene in the world. Having been to both Nagoya and Tokyo Mods Mayday, I can say I am forever hooked on the Mods and Modets of Nihon.

The young Englishwoman, who’d been riding since she was just 16 yrs old, had already taken a few solo journeys to Scotland and Ireland– and now was ready to take on more before she finished school and settled down into a career.
Beard’s bike was a used 1974 BMW R 60/6 flat-twin, already with 30K miles, that she bought from a friend of a friend
