Douglas Sportique

Specification

This is a very special little scooter which a lot of British scooterists should appreciate , the Douglas Sportiqiue , our very own infamous vespa, assembled in the Douglas factory Bristol throughout the 1950's and earlier part of the 60's . 

This scooter is in fantastic condition considering the rot that alot of them have succomed to with the British winters down through the years . Although it has been restored ( a few years previous) and redone in the original lilac colour scheme it has very visable factory spot weld indicting a lack of filler used and showning a still intact lovely straght solid body shell ( very important with vespa's) The chroming on the panels is proper old school chroming , copperplated and then chromed, it is as good now as it was when it was done many years ago , no dents and no pitting.

After 10 years of dry storage for our part we have semo -stripped it and recondition the engine reduced to 125cc and re-registered as 125 ( also converting the electric to non battery much more reliable ) and overhauled the cables ( teflon) suspension and added new tyres and brakes , basically a restoration without the respray . This a brillaint scooter to just use about town and nice original piece of british history which should be preserved .

Scooter comes with British registeration V5 classic rego B/W number plate ,new MOT and tax excempt .
