The 35-year-old woke on Thursday morning to discover that someone had taken the distinctive blue-coloured Vespa Douglas 125.

Dennis, who bought the bike about three years ago, said: "I was devastated to see it had been stolen.

A Scooter on Steroids: The Vespa 150 TAP

A Scooter on Steroids: The Vespa 150 TAP | Vespa Stories | Scoop.it

For most people, the terms “kickass firepower” and “motor scooter” don’t belong together. Then again, most people have never seen the Vespa 150 TAP that served with French airborne troops in the 1950s. Made by Ateliers de Construction de Motocycles et Automobiles, France’s official builder of Vespa scooters at the time, it combined mobility with one helluva big gun.

The late 40s and 50s were tough years for most of Europe. Many nations were still putting themselves together after the devastation of World War II. France was no exception. But the French military still needed weapons to serve its interests in Indochina and Algiers.

Enter the Vespa 150 TAP. It combined a scooter with a 146 cm⊃3; single cylinder, two-stroke engine, and a US-made M20 75mm recoilless rifle. The result was one of the oddest mismatches in the history of warfare.

Vietnam by Vespa: a gourmet ride around Ho Chi Minh City

Vietnam by Vespa: a gourmet ride around Ho Chi Minh City | Vespa Stories | Scoop.it

The perky Miss Dieu surveys our motley group of motor scooter novices as we line up outside the alarmingly overdecorated The Reverie Saigon hotel. She is keen to make us feel comfortable about our upcoming, and potentially scary, adventure. “It is only when you are inside the Ho Chi Minh City traffic,” she says solemnly, “that you will begin to understand how it works.”

Less than five minutes later, with a sturdy helmet in place as I cling to the waist of broad-shouldered Truong while we speed hither and thither through the city’s downtown core, I begin to understand what she means. I am riding pillion on his shiny black Vespa and hurtling about our fragile little vehicle is the swallowing flow of cars, buses, trucks and phalanxes of motorbikes, on which families of up to five or six ride pressed together, concertina-style. These mobile communities rarely seem to wear helmets or even enclosed shoes; one family hurtles by with a white-haired grandma, regally enthroned at the motorbike’s rear, who has one hand up, balancing a cooking pot on her head.
