Hi there Paul --- glad to see you're still with us.

Hi everyone...l am still alive and riding..but busy with work obligations.  I have no idea if my comments about aerials and fox tails have been getting through...have sent them to the Vespa club but where in the club l have no idea..so l will try this site too.  This is the last word on flying saucers and Vespas:  I sent a www address with one of my comments that displayed a flying saucer powered by a Vespa scooter surrounded by people dressed as spacemen..and riding Vespas in space suits...in France in the 1950's.  Why the obsessions with flying saucers in the 1950'60's ?  Why did Vespa and Lambretta design an aerial with a flying saucer and/or a sputnik as a cap on top?  The final word:  I was right in my assumption about THE world being interested in space travel as a consequence of the Russians putting Sputnik up there...however, it goes further...it seems that the 1950's and 60's were times of great optimism..one looked forward..hence much of this idea was projected into the design of all sorts of objects..lamps, furniture, cars (the rise of the fin...looking forward and the idea of leaving a sense of speed behind...progress..space travel..the flying saucer became THE ICON of the 1950's and early 1960's...first written about in 1947 post a pilot in the USA claiming to see one...streamline was the word...smoothe shapes influenced design that depicted the streamline shapes of flying saucers 'spotted all over the USA' after 1947..a sort of mass hypnosis ...the phenomenon swept the world..and Vespa was not to be left behind..so they designed an aerial with a flying saucer and sputnik cap on the top...it was extremely popular...in the UK, France, Germany and the SE Asian Countries  like the Philippines..and also popular in India...most Vespa and Lambretta riders had at least two mounted near the front mudguard.  Thats it..thats the story behind the flying saucer aerial...a replica now on its way to my home from the UK...!!! 

 

Kind regards to all   Paul Pancrazio  Vroooooom  TOOOOOOOOOOOT  flutter flutter...now working on why fox tails were popular in the 1950's on scooter and car aerials  ?
