Vespa Large Frame Oil Change
Vespa Scooter models are easily identified and referred to by the first 3 digits of the VIN, which is easily decoded. All start with "V" for Vespa. The second Digit designates engine size and/or trim level.
N = 125cc
B = 150cc 8" Wheel
G = 150cc 10" Wheel
S = Deluxe model with 10" wheel, 4-speed transmission, and spare tire.
The 3rd digit is the model progression, similar to Mark or revision.
