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.

Another great scooter from Greg and his team (my second one). Their scooters are prepared to the highest standard and look stunning. Lots of stainless and chrome on this 1961 VBB 150. Thanks Greg, your skill is much appreciated.

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.
