Arcobaleno or Lusso series with electric start. This models was not sold in the United States, and we've never seen one this clean with original paint.
This scooter has a rebuilt engine with a Mazzucchelli crankshaft, new bearings, oil seals, gaskets and rubber. This engine was rebuilt using only Piaggio OEM parts.
It has SIP tubeless wheels with Heidenau tires mounted. A SIP Road exhaust provides additional power, while retaining the look and sound of a stock Vepsa.
This bike runs perfect and looks almost new with its original paint.
Further information about this series:
In 1983, the Arcobaleno series was introduced (marketed outside of Italy as the Lusso series) with technological innovations such as separate lubrication and fuel gauges. In addition, the front brake pads were made to be self-centering, the wiring was altered for ease of maintenance, the same key was now used for the ignition and the steering lock, and several minor adjustments were made to the body. These included increasing the size of the glovebox, increasing the size of the rear mudguard, and a new horn grille.
