    Default Buying Vintage 1970's Vespa To Restore. Need Help!

    Hello everyone!!
    I have been looking to restore a classic Italian Vespa for quite sometime now. Few days ago, i came across this 1970's Italian Vespa in need of some serious TLC. I am willing to go ahead with the restoration project but i have been having second thoughts about the bike because it has "duplicate registration" papers. I would like to know if its risky to buy a scooter with duplicate paper like it is in the case of cars. Or may be its quite common with such old antique bikes and that it wont cause any hassle for me in the future due to its duplicate registration papers.
    Please advise me the best route in this regard. Should i proceed with the purchase??? Don't even think of buying it??? Or maybe there are any safeguards i should take with such a purchase???

    Awaiting reply!!!

    Get it. The financial outlay is small compared to the joy of owning one. All you need do is take the papers to the Motor Excise office for a check, and if they ok it, go ahead with yr purchase. Get yr Vespa now, before they all get taken away by greedy expats out to make a quick buck; while our bike clubs, oblivious to the migration, sleep on.
