Default Early Allstates

The very first Sears Allstate Scooters available for sale in the states were in 1951. The first run of scooters had a unique allstate badge on the legshield where the Piaggio badge would normally be. These scooters were model number 788-100 and are the rarest of Allstate Vespas. I believe these were produced for limited time and then changed over to 788-101 in mid to late 1951. These scooters were essentially VESPA U models with a different front mud guard. Here are some photos of an early 788-100. The year of production it typically the last year of the model number. Stathis has a 788-102, which is a 1952.


Η πρώτες βέσπες Sears Allstate διατέθηκαν προς πώληση στις Η.Π.Α. το 1951. Η πρώτη "φουρνιά" των σκούτερ αυτών είχε ένα μοναδικό σήμα Allstate στην ποδιά εκεί που το σήμα της Piaggio ήταν κανονικά. Αυτά τα μηχανάκια είχαν αριθμό μοντέλου 788-100 και είναι τα σπανιότερο των Allstate Vespas. Πιστεύω ότι αυτά παρήχθησαν για περιορισμένο χρονικό διάστημα και στη συνέχεια άλλαξαν σε 788-101 στα μέσα με τέλη του 1951. Αυτά τα μηχανάκια ήταν αρχικά Vespa U με διαφορετικό εμπρός φτερό και καπάκια . Ακολουθούν μερικές φωτογραφίες από ένα από τα πρώτα 788-100. Το έτος παραγωγής από το τελευταίο ψηφίο του αριθμού μοντέλου αριθμός του μοντέλου. Ο Στάθης έχει μια 788-102, η οποία είναι 1952.

Default Early Allstates

Here is a restored 1951 788-101. On this scooter you can see the difference in badges on the legshield. All Allstates had cheaper aluminum floor strips and were lacking the extra dampner on the front suspension.


Εδώ είναι μια αναπαλαιωμένη 788-101 του 1951. Σε αυτό το σκούτερ μπορείτε να δείτε τη διαφορά στο σήμα της ποδιάς. Όλες οι Allstates είχαν φθηνότερες λωρίδες πάτωματος απο αλουμινίο και έλειπε το επιπλέον αμορτισερ στην εμπρός ανάρτηση.

Default Early Allstates

Here is my 1954 788-104. Up through the end of the handlebar models all allstates were painted the same light green color as the U models. It differed from the metallic green which adorned many of the early italian bikes. This scooter is original paint and unrestored.

Εδώ βλέπετε τη δική μου 788-104 του 1954. Έως το τέλος των handlebar models ολες οι allstates ήταν βαμμένες με το ίδιο ανοιχτό πράσινο χρώμα, όπως τα μοντέλα U. Διέφερε από το μεταλλικό πράσινο που κοσμούσε πολλά από τα πρώτα ιταλικά κατωφαναρα μοντέλα. Αυτό το scooter είναι σε εντελώς original κατάσταση.

Default Early Allstates

Here is a 1956 Allstate. The serial number cadence changed on these starting in 1955 but they retained the same body design as the italian scooters. Starting in 1955 a new badge appeared on the back of the leg shield facing the rider. This badge attached via the badge on the front and said "Super Cruisaire"

Εδώ είναι μια Allstate του 1956. Ο αύξων αριθμός άλλαξε στα μοντέλα από το 1955 και μετά, αλλά διατηρήθηκε η ίδια σχεδίαση του σασί όπως στα ιταλικά μοντέλα (struzzo). Ξεκινώντας το 1955 ένα νέο σήμα εμφανίστηκε στο πίσω μέρος της ποδιάς από την πλευρά που κοιτάζει ο αναβάτης. Αυτό το σήμα ήταν στερεωμένο μαζί με το σήμα στο μπροστινό μέρος και έγραφε "Super Cruisaire"

Default Early Allstates

Here are pictures of a late 56 or early 57, model number 788-9449. All handlebar allstates remained 125 cc's even though their Italian equivilants were bumped up to 150 cc's in the mid 50's. This is an excellent unrestored example featuring some very sought after original allstate accessories.

Εδώ είναι οι εικόνες μιας από τα τελευταία μοντέλα 56 ή αρχές του 57, με αριθμό 788-9449. Σε όλες τις handlebar allstates το μοτέρ παρέμεινε 125 cc ακόμα κι αν τα αντίστοιχα ιταλικά μοντέλα ήταν 150 cc στα μέσα της δεκαετίας του 50. Το συγκεκριμένο είναι ένα εξαιρετικό unrestored δείγμα που διαθέτει και μερικά πολύ σπάνια original allstate accessories.

Default Handlebar Allstate Accessories

Sears sold several unique accessories through their catalog that you could buy for your Vespa. Here are some catalog scans from a 1953 catalog. These accessories are highly prized by US Collectors and are very hard to find.

H Sears eixe πολλά μοναδικά αξεσουάρ στον κατάλογό της που θα μπορούσατε να αγοράσετε για Vespa σας. Εδώ είναι δυο σκαναρισμενες σελίδες από έναν κατάλογο του 1953. Τα εξαρτήματα αυτά είναι ιδιαίτερα ποθητά στους αμερικανούς συλλέκτες και είναι πολύ δύσκολο να βρεθούν.
