Work so far

The first task for the restoration of the scooter is to strip everything from the body so that the frame can be repaired and eventually repainted, taking everything off the frame of the Vespa is easier said than done due to 58 years of British weather rusting all of the fixings and making them a pain to remove.

I also need to try keeping as many original fixings as I can because they are mostly British imperial sizes and cannot easily be replaced by Italian equivilents.

Another important thing to consider is making a note of how things are bolted together, I've tried to take a number of photos so that I know exactly where each piece goes when bolted back together.
