The Glemseck 101 is an annual drag race held in the suburbs of Stuttgart, Germany, on public roads that are closed for the event. It attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year, and its participants include European custom builders, amateurs, and even motorcycle manufacturers. At last year’s event, drag machines made from Vespas and Lambrettas took part, and in this feature, we focus on two of the Vespas that competed there.



The Milestone of Fuji Rabbit Series
Fuji Rabbit S101

日本において最もポピュラーな鉄スクーター、Fuji Rabbitシリーズ。卓越した設計思想と、実用性、そして耐久性を兼ね備えたRabbitは、その登場から半世紀以上経ったいまでも多くの有志たちによって受け継がれ、時に新たな修理方法が開発されながら生きながらえてきた。今回は日本のそんなFuji Rabbitシリーズの中でも、1950年代後半に誕生して黄金期への入り口を支えたマイルストーン的モデル“S 101”にフォーカスする。

The most popular iron scooters in Japan are the models from the Fuji Rabbit series. Rabbits have a combination of outstanding design, practicality, and durability, and in the half a century that has passed since their debut, they have survived by being passed down among enthusiasts and maintained in running condition thanks to the development of new repair methods. In this feature, we take a close look at a model from the Rabbit series released in the late 1950s, a milestone that carried the Rabbit into its golden age.

Timeless Gems part.2
Vespa 50S
A Vespa for the Japanese Domestic Market


スクーターという乗り物がこの世に誕生してから70余年。各社の技術者たちは、時代ごとに人々の暮らしや世相を反映しながら、数々の傑作や意欲作を生み出し、世に問うてきた。そして、それらを当時の姿のまま後世に残すべく尽力するフリークたち。Timeless Gems. それは時代を超えて受け継がれてゆくべき技術遺産だ。今回は80年代から日本のマーケットに向けて販売されたVespa 50Sについて掘り下げる。

It has been 70 years since the birth of the scooter. Throughout that time, technicians at various manufacturers have produced ambitious models that reflected the lives and social conditions of the period in which they were produced. Thanks to the efforts of enthusiasts, some of the machines have been preserved in their original condition. These timeless gems are technological heritage that should be passed down for generations to come. In this edition of “Timeless Gems,” we feature the Vespa 50S, a scooter targeted to the Japanese market whose production began in the 80s.
