I think the american definition of a bodge is completely different to the British definition...

Here's the column, I changed the upper and lower bearings yesterday actually, there was a play on the lower bearing before changing it, thought I might see something strange when looking at it closely but it's all good. So far all is good. I'll keep updating as I work on it. Using it daily, nothing really abnormal happened, yet, for a 55-year-old ride.

A Bodge or legit?
Going to look at this one, central Portugal, supposedly restored. I’m new to Vespa, What can you pro’s glean from this one based on these pics? Thanks!

From the photos looks like a nice 66 or later square badge smallframe. Appears to have had the speedo replaced and had had the two piece chrome legshield trim installed.
I suggest you take a magnet with you to check for excessive filler on the chassis.
Also be sure to check the underside and open the saddle to check inside of tank with a flashlight.
Pull the plastic tool box that is under the seat and check that area with flashlight.
Open the engine side door and check under the frame for rust.
Be sure the motor is cold and see how it starts.
Overall it looks nice and smallies are a delight to ride as long as you understand a 3 speed 90 which this looks like are not speed demons. But they can be made to go much quicker depending on your budget.
