Description

Additional photos of this Allstate Cruisaire are available here for your perusal.

Not to be confused with the insurance company, Allstate was a distributor of motorcycles, scooters, and even a couple of cars between the 40s and the 60s. Through varying partnerships with Gilera, Puch, Vespa, Cushman, and others, Allstate sold vehicles through unconventional outlays. The Allstate Cruisaire was a rebranded Vespa, and you could order it at a Sears department store or mail-order catalog.

For more on what differentiated the Allstate-branded vs. Vespa-branded scooters, check out the Den of the Vespa.

This example is VIN: VA11T44882, Engine #: VNA2N0114337 – the VNA prefix means that this uses a Piaggio/Vespa 125cc engine.

The seller acquired it as a runner out of a collection in Thousand Oaks, California thirteen years ago and had it on display at his condo. The odometer shows 20,242 miles.

Maintenance:
As it had been sitting for so long, he had us make it a runner earlier this year – Daniel cleaned/synced the carb, replaced the condenser, replaced the point system, rerouted the coil wiring, repaired a stuck steering lock, and flushed the fuel tank.

Modifications:

Cosmetic Blemishes:





It is rolling on Continental white wall tires and it comes with a spare.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Allstate is offered on a clean California title with non-op registration.
