I just picked up a '64 VBB that needs a floor. On Scooter Mercato's page they list the width of the long curved panel at "roughly" 8 3/4". I measure this one at "roughly" 8 1/2". Anyone used this panel and is it "roughly" 1/4" too wide ?
SIP shows theirs at 460mm or just under 18 1/8". Are they the same panel ?

Here are couple as I got it two days ago. It is original ( other than some paint ) and complete but was stored outside by the looks of it and shows 6K miles. . It has some serious corrosion on all the alloy ( like from a salty environment) , rotted LH cowl bottom and floor. It is completely stripped down now and I almost have the piston un-stuck.

1) Call Scooter Mercato and ask Dave about your concerns, He's a straight up guy, he'll be honest about the fit.

2) I would think whoever installs the floorpan could fudge an 1/8" on each side and make it look just fine. If they cant you might want to find somebody else to do the job.

PS nice find, good looking scooter.
