The Primavera started in 1967. The start of this VIN number is VMA2T
The ET3 which is VMB1T had electronic ignition and didn't start production until 1976. I don't believe these were officially imported into Australia, which…"
The 125 Primevera ET3 was made from 1976-1990. This is assuming the first part of the serial number in the photo is VMB1T. Your photo is hard to read the first part while the second part looks as though is has been restamped.

I finally finished sorting the "vespa stuff" in the garage but the ladies are needing…"

"I was running the 26.26g on a ported Malossi 166 with a tuned pipe.
I think your next step should be to put something like a SIP road exhaust on. This will give more performance improvement than a bigger carburetor on your setup.
"I have a 26.26g which is a good upgrade if you are running a performance barrel and exhaust.
If you do go to the 26mm, the inlet into the crankcase should be opened up to match the larger opening of the carburetor. This involves splitting the…"
