I purchased my 1962 Vespa last year, and the process was seamless. Greg and his team provide exhaustive purchase/transport information on this website, and it went just as it was outlined. The job they did restoring the Vespa was outstanding, and is a real beauty! They deliver just what they promise.

I will offer one cautionary note for someone living in California: the California DMV has gotten very strict about registering imported Vespas. They wanted the original title transfer document from Vietnam, which was difficult to obtain. Unfortunately, DMV did not inform me that a solution to the registration problem is to obtain a Surety Bond from an insurance company. I only found out about this option thanks to the advice I got from another California resident who had the same problem registering their imported Planet Vespa scooter. Getting a Surety Bond is a pretty simple process for the registration. But, it was the only solution I could find. I would recommend biting the bullet and getting the Surety Bond right up front in the registration process (if your from CA) so you can spend more time enjoying the ride on your new, restored Planet Vespa scooter!

Thanks, again, Greg and Team for a great product and providing me with many fun rides on my restored Vespa.

I love my 1965 VBC 150. It is beautiful and rides great. I communicated with Greg for months before purchase and we still talk months after the purchase. Greg follows through with after sale support quickly and with great knowledge. I want to get another one…I just need more room in my garage for it!!

Thanks Greg

I ordered a beautiful Tiffany Blue 1965 Vespa VBB Scooter with a sidecar from Greg this past Fall and the whole buying and shipping process went very smooth. The quality and performance of the unit is simply amazing, absolutely beautiful! I was skeptical as I’ve never ordered anything from overseas. However, Greg and one of his good buyers assured me that I would be getting a good quality scooter, I’m very happy! Greg is a true professional and he stands by his product. He made the whole buying experience easy for me. I had photos and videos sent during the rebuild phase and of the unit being tested, along with operating instructions. It was all very helpful information for a first timer (Vespa driver) like myself. When I first drove it out with my husband, we accidentally scraped the sidecar damaging the light that sits on the side unit. I told Greg what happened and he sent out a new light fixture for me soon after. All I needed to do is get the sidecar repainted here locally. Greg will ship extra paint for touch up purposes with your Vespa along with the accessories. Greg and his team are the BEST!
Thank you for the gorgeous restore, Greg! I love my scooter!

I choose the 1962 VBB with side car. The most difficult decision was what color. Silver/blue or cream or cherry red. As you see in the pictures the cherry red won out. Really happy with Greg and his workers making the entire process a fun and exciting event. Greg was especially helpful giving me the contact who person accept and deliver the 900 lb box from San Francisco to my home in San Jose, California The paper work sent gave my the ability to register the Vespa at the California DMV with no problems. I’m a very happy owner at age 81 and will be happy to provide specifics on the buying/shipping/owning details. I’m very surprised how much power the scooter has with the side car. Very satisfactory!

Dear Greg and the Planet Vespa team

When the crate was opened I was stunned. The attention to detail was clearly evident. The add ons I asked for were expertly installed. She is an absolute beauty and my wife was thrilled. Everything went smoothly and the communication was superb.
Thanks Planet Vespa for a job VERY well done.

Greg and his team at Planet Vespa just delivered me three more amazing scooters to bring the total we have done together to five. These three included a 1956 Lambretta LD150, a 1955Vespa VL2T and a 1960 Vespa VBB restored as an MP6 replica. They are all amazing scooters- beautifully restored and mechanically exceptional. All three started up and ran great. My biggest problem is choosing which one to ride! Greg and his team are the best at what they do, not to mention fair priced. Greg is a great communicator and keeps you involved through every step of the process. Packing and transport is flawless. Planet Vespa is as good as any restorer in Italy and they are the only one based in Viet Nam that you can trust and have confidence in.
