Other than changing the brake fluid and brake line, what else might need to be done to this scooter?

Be specific. How did you acquire this scooter? How many miles? When was the last service? Give more information and people will help you.

It has 17 original miles. I mentioned to my wife that it would be neat to get a Vespa and she agreed. I found this scooter on Craigslist. The gentleman that owned it bought it for his wife who fell in love with the idea of owning a Vespa while visiting Rome. It turns out the love flamed out after 17 miles. My wife, unbeknownst to me, bought it as a gift for me for $1600.00. It also came with a Shoei helmet.

Welcome to MV!

You will want to change the drive belt:

Another Belt Question! Replace with less than 1000 miles?

That is a sweet little dachshund. I have loved a handful of them.

Change the hub oil. Check the tires for rot. Give it a good visual "once over". As far as the brake stuff, the lines should be fine. If it makes you feel better change the fluid. I hope your wife loves it.
