Return your Vespa to its original glory with this complete guide to restoring your prized scooter to 100% original. This information-packed, authentic restoration guide covers both the mechanical and cosmetic restoration of all Vespa motorscooters from 1946-1996.
With facilities cranking out scooters in fifteen nations, with rabid scooteristi roaming the globe, and with life-to-date sales numbering well into the millions, Vespa is unarguably the name in motorscooters. The Italian-based company has sold more than two million scooters in the U.S. alone, since Sears and Roebuck took the first stateside shipment in 1950.
Those phenomenal numbers, along with a Generation X mod revival, have translated into a thriving collectible and restoration scene, with enthusiasts striving to attain the same authenticity afforded other collectible vehicles. This complete guide to correctly restoring all Vespas built from 1946 through 1996 addresses both mechanical and cosmetic concerns. Generously illustrated with specially commissioned photography, every step in the restoration process is carefully described. Also includes vital information on parts sources.
