Monster Scooter Parts carries vintage Vespa parts for most models of out-of-production scooters. Despite a six decade production run and many different model numbers, many model changes reflected cosmetic differences paired with engine or wheel size. Many Vespa parts will often fit a number of vintage Vespa models. Most 20th Century Vespa scooter parts can be roughly divided into parts for seven engine sizes; (50cc, 125cc, 150cc, 160cc, 180cc, and 200cc), and three main body/chassis styles; (small-frame, large-frame, and the rare wide-body).

Pre-1981 Vespa Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN)
If you are unsure of the exact
year and model of your vintage pre-1981 Vespa motor scooter, you can find this information with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on your scooter's chassis. All VIN numbers begin with the letter 'V'. The letters and numbers between 'V' and 'T' will give you the model number. Some of the large frame vintage Vespa models are identified simply by the 'V' plus the next two letters. Thus a Vespa GT 125 may also be known as a VNL, a PX 150 may be referred to as a VLX, and so forth. Use the link in the paragraph below to access the full range of Vespa VIN and model designations.
The numbers after 'T' are your scooters actual serial number. By matching your scooter's VIN with the chart table here
you will find your correct model and year of manufacture.
Note: Engines also carry serial numbers, however those numbers are irrelevant to year or model. The correct VIN will only be found on the scooter's chassis.
