Starting the restoration of a 1960 GS150 VS5 to original Piaggio factory specs.
All constructive criticism and advise will be appreciated.

Finally found a shop to straighten and refinish the original ulma 107 stainless steel trim. It's going to take 3-4 weeks.

Looks good. Installing the leg shield trim is one of my least favorite tasks, especially on a nice, newly painted body. Ideally you get it to fit right before you paint it.
