Best Vintage Vespa you can get. The quality of their restoration is just amazing. They shipped inside a crate that is was solid. The bike arrived in perfect conditions. It started on the first kick after I watched their step by step video.
Anyone are more than welcome to send me an email with any questions you may have or if you are close to Jacksonville and want to check it out, just let me know.

A year ago, I suddenly had a heart failure due to unexplained angina. Thankfully, I have been miraculously saved and now live a healthy life. So I decided to get the old Vespa car that I had dreamed of for a long time with the insurance money at that time

When I was searching various vendors dealing with old Vespa cars online, it happened to be Greg’s site.

As Planet Vespa was a Vietnamese supplier, I was worried about the quality of Southeast Asia, but when I read Greg’s website, I could feel the passion for repairing it.

As a representative Japanese who is not good at English, I sent a consultation email to Greg with the help of google translation. Greg immediately replied and solved my anxiety and doubt at once. After that, transactions proceeded smoothly by exchanging over 100 emails in total.

Currently, I have run 2000 km and the period of running-in has ended, but I am running smoothly without problems. And looking at my Vespa made in 1964, everyone enviously believes this is a new scooter.
This is proof that Greg’s work is so great.

I’m unlucky to have a sudden heart disease, but at the same time I’m lucky enough to get Greg’s Vespa.

I highly recommend Planet Vespa. Thanks Greg and his team!

When I found Planet Vespa website while researching purchasing a restored Vespa, I knew, this is the place. From assisting me in selecting the color and options, keeping me informed during the restoration, providing info on the shipment and customs brokers, to checking with me once I picked up my Vespa from US Customs, Greg and his team took care of me. When I uncrated my Vespa, I was astonished at the attention to detail and craftmanship put in to the restoration. Whenever I have a question on a maintenance aspect, I can rely on an answer being in my InBox the next morning. Coolest thing, when someone comes in my garage and sees the Vespa, to prove it is a 1965, I love pulling out the vintage Vietnam license plate provided. Cool idea to include the vintage plate. Thanks so much, Planet Vespa!

The experience with purchasing our first scooter with Planet Vespa has been awesome. The website is great – the selection amazing and we were very excited to place an order. The processing was great and Greg kept us informed all the way. Our crate arrived last week and we were thrilled with the product – it looks great in the catalog on line – but in person it is outstanding. My husband viewed the start up video and notes that Greg had sent us and we started it up – started first time. Super smooth and what great fun. We are looking forward to some fun rides in the summer… I also have a feeling that it will not be our last scooter. I posted pictures on line for our friends and they all said WOW. If you are in the market for a scooter – Planet Vespa is the ONLY resource you need. Great customer service an amazing quality product!

I live in a coastal area of North Carolina USA and have a long history riding and restoring motorcycles. In retirement I found the weight and challenge of riding less attractive and went searching for an alternative. Enter Planet Vespa. Greg and his team search out and find worthy candidates for complete restorations of the 60s Icon at a rate which I could not do personally and without the history.
Doing my research I saw skeptics voicing concerns about imports but that wasn’t valid information for me applied here.
Greg’s talents bringing these scooters back to life gives life back to guys like me now after my second purchase of a custom order he just completed and was shipped with help by JF Moran import brokers.
To simply restore a 60s vintage product and not address certain concerns of that era would not be good value to the customer so updated charging systems and electronic ignitions are added along with other improvements which did not reduce but actually increases the value.

I think the best review I can give comes from the jealous look on my friends faces when they ask, “Where did you get that Vespa?”

I simply reply – Planet Vespa !

I have challenged Greg and his team with unique restorations in the past, but when I asked them to build me a replica of the iconic “Sting” Vespa from the cult movie classic Quadrophenia, I was not sure what I would get. Well the pictures tell the story. Greg and his team delivered a flawless replica that is great to look at and fun to drive. Planet Vespa has restored several scooters for me and all of them are beautiful, run well, and have zero issues when I take delivery. Greg and his team do a great job and can be fully trusted. DO NOT buy a Vespa restored in Vietnam unless it is from Planet Vespa.
