Vespa scooters were immensely popular after the World War II.  Romain Van Swol (81) from the Parklaan Wetteren-Gran Velde bought his Vespa in the 50s.

His passion for Vespa grew and he went on to become the secretary of Vespa Club in Eke. He was a regular at the meeting of Vespa Scooter Club Belgium. One of the active participants in such meetings was one of the sisters of the Belgium F1 legend, Jacky Ickx.

Romain has ridden his trusty Vespa across Europe – Sweden, Norway, France, Austria, Yugoslavia, Italy and Austria.
