Does anybody have a picture of what this switch is supposed to be ? Scooter starts , runs and rides. Just not sure what functions I am missing.
And is this the correct fuel cut for this unit ? Cant seem to find any parts or pictures of this style unit .

Any help is appreciated

Thank you

I believe you are looking for Vespa part number 123152 as pictured, but you will need to get the entire serial number prefix for you scooter.

The switch panel should include headlight On/Off, High / Low beam, and horn switches. I believe the button on the bottom edge is to turn the engine off. Similar but not the same as the switch on my 1964 Vespa

The serial number prefix is normally along the left side of the scooter along the bottom edge of the chassis near the rear wheel.

You should be able to find this part by doing google search of "Vespa 123152", but use your serial number prefix to verify this is the correct part number.

The scooter S/N prefix should be a number like V5B3T3 or something similar.

Like I said in my previous posting, you can find this part by doing a Google search, but you also have a descent Vespa part dealer called "Scooter Originali" very close you by the Allentown Airport at: 924 Marcon Blvd Ste 105, Allentown PA 18109

Their phone number is 610 231 0770 and the web address is: https://scootersoriginali.com

As far as the fuel tap, I am not familiar with what the fuel tap for your specific model should look like, but I would recommend doing a Google search of both the Parts catalogue and service manual for your model Vespa. You can normally find free pdf manuals of the older Vespa's.

The Parts Catalogue should have pictures and part numbers for every part on your scooter, then you can google search those Vespa part numbers.
