Cant tune it...
Dellorto SHB 19.19 D
I cant tune my carb. I had the stock SHBC on my Vespa Primavera and it broke. I replaced it with this other model, and cant tune it. I had idel jet on 45 and with new carb im up on 50 and it still seems small. I dont want to continue enlarging. I couldnt find any diagram for this carb to see if there a way of adjusting the needle (maybe the stock config is too lean...).
Does anyone have experience with this carb on a vintage vespa primavera?
Any tips would be greately appreciated.
Buenos Aires, Argentina

There may be some help under Dellorto...

1966 Vespa "Bluebadge"
1966 Vespa 125cc Smallframe
This is a one year only Sears Allstate. Sears didn't carry the Vespas after 66, but continued to sell the ones they already had in stock. So you may see some titled as 67, 68, or even 69. All Vespas sold through Sears pre 66 were labeled "Allstates", but for 1966, Sears sold the Vespa smallframe 125 and the Vespa Sprint 150 under the Sears name badgeing them with the blue sticker. The 1966 U.S. Sears imports only, have the "Mickey Mouse" tail light, making them very sought after. Since then, all '66 Sears Vespa's, in the scooter community, have been known as "Bluebadges."

Indicators for a 6Volt ac Vespa
1961 Vespa 150GL
Roadworthy in Australia requires indicators. I have been trying to find a supplier of 6 Volt Ac indicators suitable for my 1961 Vespa 150GL. I'm particularly interested in bar end indicators. Can you help?
Orange Australia

    BMW aftermarket bar-end indicators used to be available, quite nice quality. Try some of the vintage BMW places, Munich Motorcycles for instance.
    You don't need specically 6v indicators - just make sure you can get appropriate 6v globes for whichever indicators you buy. Ed.

Vespa1974 150 Super
I have just bought a vespa 150 Super 1974 model which is still in good working order but requires a good restoration. I am looking for a suitable manual plus a parts manual and possibly a photograph (or photocopies of these) to ensure a proper restoration to its origin.

subject: hi beam switch for vespa motor scooter
Email: timthecourier at hotmaildot com
message: I am trying to locate a hi beam switch for a 1988 Vespa COSA 200 motor scooter and as I am not very good with locating things on the internet I thought the best thing to do would be to email the experts . I would appreciate any help. Rgeards Tim Beadle.

These are the details:

1988 Vespa Cosa CL200 Elestart (VSR1T303720 Eng No 36310) which was sold 
originally by Y Narikawa, the Vespa dealers in Japan and subsequently brought to Australia. It is one of only four in the country, the others are in Perth, and the model was not sold here or in the USA. The scooter has travelled just over 10500 km.

My need is for a headlight/flash/hilo switch for the right hand side of the handlebar.(picture attached). I have search the web since last August with no luck. Piaggio in UK suggested looking at "Classic sites" as the scooter is now deemed classic! I have never been able to get a reply form the Japanese dealers who sold it, but am still trying.

Any help you can be is greatly appreciated, it was nice of you to remember. 
Thanks in advance,

Bob Matheson
