WOW !!!!! Amazing.

A very special thank you to Greg and all his team at Planet Vespa, for the care and professionalism shown to us every step of the way during our recent acquisition of a beautifully restored 1963 Vespa 150 with GS Styling. From the moment Greg and I spoke on the phone, I felt comfortable that we were in capable hands. Upon delivery we were left speechless at the level of detail that goes into each one of these meticulous restorations.

Totally exceeded our expectations especially to the small attention to detail like the inclusion of stylish rubber floor mat, dust/rain cover, spares kit and retro owners manual, was such a nice touch.

We are so honoured to be the next custodian of this gorgeous 55 year old classic, who we have named ‘Giulia”.

Photos cannot do justice. So much love and true passion goes into bringing these artisan made Vespas back to their former glory. In my humble opinion, I think they look even better that they would have when initially rolled off the production floor all those years ago.

Currently living and working in HCMC, Vietnam, however we intend to return to Perth Australia following completion of our work over here. One of the first items to be carefully packed and shipped will be the new addition to the family. Greg extended an open invitation to us, that he would be very happy to help us with that process when we are ready for the move.

Much appreciation and gratitude for such a great experience.

Happy to chat to anyone interested who is thinking of investing in one from Planet Vespa.

La Bella Figura.

The best in the business!!!!! If you have to buy a Vespa, go to Planet Vespa. Greg is the best operator in the business and his team is the best renovator IN THE WORLD!! I’ve had my 66/150 sport for the past five years and could not be happier. I am now too old to have another one but if I could I would. Thank You Greg, you’ve given me the mean to remember my youth.

I would just like to offer my thanks and congratulations to all the team for the excellent restoration of my recently purchased 1964 VBB 150cc Vespa. The high quality restoration and the faultless transaction in the importation to Melbourne was excellent.
It’s almost too good too ride. Special thanks to Greg for continual up to date progress info.

I went all in and purchased a 1961 VBB and a 1968 VBL with sidecar from Planet Vespa.  I uncrated the bikes and they were flawless.  I was blown away.  Upon inspecting how they were packed, it is easy to see how they have never had a damage claim.  The packing and securing of the bikes to the crates was as professional as it gets.  I chose to fire up the VBB first and she fired right up on the third kick.  Two minutes later I was headed down the road on my maiden voyage.  She performed flawlessly, shifted smoothly, had good power and well, it was just a great experience.  Anyone who has properly considered investing in a vintage restored Vespa has probably heard some horror stories about bikes restored in Viet Nam.  I can unequivocally state that the Vespa’s from Planet Vespa and team are the real deal.  Greg and his team do amazing work and he is a man of his word.  If you are considering investing in a vintage restored Vespa, you can do so with confidence with Planet Vespa.  This is not a paid for or planted review, I provide this based solely on my own personal experience.  Feel free to contact me at  palbregts@dexter.com.  I would be happy to share more detail with you.  Thanks again Greg for two great bikes.  We will be getting together on a third soon.

Hi Greg, I just wanted to say a great big thank you to you & your team for the excellent job you did with Sophia my beautiful 1967 Vespa VBB.
As you know she was a 50th birthday present & it was great to visit your workshop & see her on my birthday whilst in Ho Chi Minh City.
My Vespa (Sophia) is now finally home & all done with road worthy / safety inspections & fully registered in QLD Australia. She receives many admiring glances & comments whilst out & about, folks just love her!
Thanks for all your excellent work & for all your help whenever I’ve contacted you.
To anyone thinking of buying from Greg at Planet Vespa, I can only say, go ahead, do it, you won’t be disappointed!

I decided to get back into scootering after a break of some 48years and chose Planet vespa after some research and by testimonials from other owners I’m very glad I did. This is my first purchase from Greg and his team and I have to say it is beyond my wildest dreams, the attention to detail is amazing. The purchasing process was made very easy the shipping to was a good experience overall I’m vey happy indeed.
Thanks Greg and yor team
