"There is a lovely looking 1950 V30 on the Maskes website at the moment. Importing is probably your best option."

"Hi John Thank you for bringing this to my attention ,although I’m completely aware of the price of a Bacchetta and the rarity of the parts and expenses involved. Bacchetta is what I’m after not a Douglas. Regards Luke"

"Hi Greg I was wondering if you had chosen a cylinder kit for the VNB? My Reason for asking is that I'm thinking of up grading the VNB5T 125cc to a 177cc, but not sure. Its a number matching bike and I'm a little on the fence…"

Hi Mark
The vespa is a 1960 VNB . So Tiffany is the lady selling it who bought it from a Andrew 3-4 year ago and Andrew brought it from a Peter Westend 6years ago.
Peter westend apparently restored the vespa and is a SA vespa club member.
Mark send me your email address and I will send some photos.

Hi again Luke.

There isn't a Vespa Club in SA, and I've never heard of Peter Westend. Beware of the representations people make. Please send the photos and we'll assist you, or you can point us to the advertisement for sale. In the meantime, don't put your money down.

Hi Gr eg
I can't get a photo at the moment, but will try and get you one shortly. So I was told by the previous owner that the scooter Vespa VNB 125 CC's 1960 year built was restored buy a Peter WestEnd who is a Vespa member in South Australia.
I was unable to find a Peter westend in South Australia but I found Peter Petzmann at your club in Melbourne and thought I may have heard wrong incorrect.
