This pretty cool restoration video. I donít know what the scooter will look like when heís finished, but heís definitely starting off with a basket case!

Looks like an Asian resto. If you watch his engine resto video, your eyes will hurt...

I agree. He was literally sand papering the engine cases to then polish them.

1961? Maybe a small part of it, but much of it is late 60's and 70's and it has a P series rear brake pedal.

That's what I always think when I see this 'raising from the decomposed'... Why not just buy a better body and start from there? Save yourself a hell of a lot of time and unless you treat every last little bit of rust, it's going to start decomposing again as soon as you turn you back.

Each to their own I guess.. just not my cup of tea this one.

Now I see why some bodges look like several different scooters welded together.

I guess a repair like this is OK?????... for the owner but when you sell these as exports for crazy money is where concerns really begins.
