1960 VNB1T Vespa Body Repairs

Alessio a very enthusiastic Vespa owner/collector called me a couple of months ago to see if I'd be interested in doing some body repair work on one of his recent acquisitions, a quite rare 1960 large frame vnb1t 125cc 3 speed Vespa. Originally factory painted baby blue, Alessio plans to upgrade the engine/transmission to 190cc and 4 speed. Although the scooter body is structurally sound there's still quite a bit of panel fettling required before any of the mechanical upgrades can occur.Here's…See More

"Vince's work on this frame has been superb and his attention to detail impeccable. If you look at the sequence of photos in the link, it is evident how bad the frame was and how Vince has literally saved this frame. Chapeau !"

Racked my Scooter

Posted on May 9, 2017 at 16:00 9 Comments

I post to a few forums but this setup looks a little different to me! So I'll give it my best shot. I bought a scooter on impulse about 6 weeks ago. During a morning walk I happened past Roberto's (The Vespa Wizard) workshop. After the pleasantries and some 'oohing and ahhing' I noticed a pretty little green Vespa Sprint in the back of the shop.
