A bit of Twin Cities scooter history

Vesparado

Beyond all the restoration, repair and custom work we’re doing on scooters and motorcycles this winter, we’re also still sorting out our new shop space. (Have you been by yet?) This great old building has a lot of character, but also needs a lot of work. Part of getting the space sorted out is finding the right mix of art and decor to make it a proper shop. So when this Vesparado sign was offered to us we jumped on it. The Vesparado shop was the place to get a Vespa in the Twin Cities in the late ’70s and early ’80s. To this day, some of the nicest, most accessorized P-series and Rally Vespas we get in the shop usually came from Vesparado originally. It’s nice to have this little chunk of history as part of our shop now, as we keep those old Vespas in good nick and running well into the future.
