Holla everyone ..this is my first post here

I just bought a vespa VBB 1961 model from my local seller..the probs is when I send the scoot for repair some minor issue...the expert told me this is not a real VBB...infact its a vespa super 150 chasis version converted to VBB model...because as per their obervation..the legshield is narrow in size just like a vespa super width measurement
Can anyone expert in this HELP ME OUT ..IF NOT LEGIT I am about to ask a full refund from the seller and send the scoot back to him.
Mayday mayday

Many thanks in advance

I have a couple of Supers and a VBB frame. I thought they were the same thing. But the Supers are 450mm wide and the VBB is 465mm. I wondered why Beedspeed are selling two almost identical legshields for VBB and Super.

My 64 measures close to 47 centimeters. An observation; From the front the legsheild should seem as wide as the cowls. The cowls on my VBB and Rally 180 are about a centimeter wider to each side than the legsheild but viewed from a couple of meters in front they should seem even. The engine side cowls are a bit wider that the opposite side.
