Early Allstate

VespAll1.jpg

Rare photo of a very early Allstate Vespa. I'd guess by looking at the cowl and centerstand that this is a '52 or '53. This one has the rare horizontal front rack that was offered by Sears as an accessory. I'd love to find one of those today! If you look closely, you'll also notice the behind-the-legshields storage bags, which attached to a chrome rack.
