I have been a fan of Vespa since high school but I have never had the chance to start a project until now. I managed to find a 1956 Allstate and I was hoping yíall might have some advice on where to begin or a potential restoration guide.
The internet has been an awesome place to find great sites like this but Iím a bit overwhelmed. While I would love to one day ride this scooter I am doing this restoration more as a way to learn how to fix up a scooter as I know these models have some features that donít make them great drivers.
I am posting some pics to give you a sense of the current state of the bike. Besides the rust there is a cut to the front right side that I am hoping can be welded or fixed another way.
I am 100% new to this game and vehicles in general but I canít wait to get started on figuring everything out.
Thank you in advance for any help or guidance you can provide. I have really enjoyed lurking on these forums and I am happy to be able to have something worthwhile to post.
