Vintage Italian Scooter Sale of the Century

Vintage Italian Scooter Sale of the Century

In the 1960s, the scooter became as much a fashion statement as humble transport. Vespa and Lambretta were the Coco-cola and Pepsi of the Mediterranean and you couldn’t be a fan of both. They had their own magazines, clubs and mod gangs across the continent.
Then there was the Moto Guzzi and the futurist Maico Mobil, all of them competing for business in Italy’s post-WWII auto industry boom. Like all things vintage, I have a thing for scooters that look like they were just discovered in an old garage somewhere in Tuscany.
Lucky for me, an Austrian collector is about to sell off his incredible collection of vintage scooters at auction. “Decades of scooter history will unwind before our very eyes,” says an auction house representative at the Dorotheum in Austria. The auction kicked off in April and starting bids are very tempting, ranging from 50 to 500 Euros. Bidders were able to snatch up everything from a baby blue Lambretta, to the very first Innocenti scooter!
