I all – I brought a vespa this week, my first ever, it is in need of a lot of tlc. To get me started I needed to find out what it is, I was told it was a 150cc and this seems to be true but I cant figure out the rest. I can’t find a chassis number anywhere on the bike and the only engine number I can find doesn’t match anything I’ve seen online (the number is – EP126073). The horncast, handle bars and kick start has Piaggio on them, the cylinder head has Baja stamped on it, the fly wheel has Paijifa on it and the speedo has Poupt on it … I’m stumped as to what I have, does anyone have any clues?

Hello grahame_burgess, this forum is mainly for NZeta scooters, however most of us all own and are interested in other scooters as well. Just a quick google check on “Paijifa” returned a blogspot site:
Excerpt: “The Taiwanese Paijifa 150cc 2 stroke Vespa style scooter. Paijifa Industrial Co. of Taiwan entered into an agreement with Bajaj Auto Ltd. in 1976 to produce scooters in Taiwan. Bajaj had previously entered into a technical collaboration agreement with Piaggio of Italy to manufacture Vespas in India”

“Vespa partnered with many different companies around the world to manufacture scooters. The Paijifa 150 is a distant cousin of America’s favorite scooter, the Genuine Stella”

Personally I have never seen one and it seems they are few and far between.

Anyone else ?

I think you’ve about covered it – have found these Vespas on Trade-me before – always listed as 150 cc. I think the motor (compression ratio) is slightly detuned compared to Italian Vespas. Would be interesting to see if NZ Vespa people support this model.

Would imagine V 150 parts fit.
