Hi everyone,

Sometime ago I bought in France(my native country) a smallfram in order to restore it.
It's an original 50s first series 4speeds from 1964,(rarely in France because it was necessary to have the license to drive it due of the 4 speeds)
Happy to see the good condition when it was discovered in a barn (Surface rust not important, motor not blocked, complete with 99.9%)

Thanks, Yes for the motor but firstly I think install an original 125pk elestar because I do not think much roll with the 50cc...

Hi all,

Sorry for the long time, but Iím back to continue this project.
I decided to use another engin than the original one to drive this Vespa. My final choice is an original PK125 engin with big refurbishment to start in good condition.
Few pictures at the start of the refurbí.
Starter cable broken, and few little parts necessary to changes for new ones, but basically this engin is in good condition. I will to change the cylinder and piston, all seal, rolling...[/img]
