Vespa 1964 50cc Small Frame

Originally Published at The Vespa Wizard


This stunning 1962 50cc was brought to me in boxes by a client who dismantled it a few years ago and stored it, waiting for right opportunity to reassemble it.  Unfortunately some of the parts went missing and most components were rusting away.  The frame and all the body parts were sent to the Motorcycle Paint Clinic for sandblasting, panel beating and painting whilst the engine was completely dismantled. All the alloy parts were hydroblasted and the engine reassembled using some new parts including the piston, clutch, bearings, seals and gear change cruciform. The electrical wiring had to be modify to include a stop light and High/low bean globe to conform with Australian specifications.

Here is the final result……..

Please note that the engine cover door is missing and we are still waiting for a new one from Italy
