Thanks, best to start them out young and yes, the trim is coming along very nicely. I forgot the pic of the official welcome to the herd offered by Big Sprint.

Just picked this up today...
... from a neighbor across town. It's my first Vespa smallie. It's a project though: a non-runner and missing parts galore.
Nice original paint, though.

That red is gonna clean up so nice! Looks like you have very little rust to deal with and no real damage on the body.

Put a fork in the blue 50 special, it's done except for new tires. I missed my cargo capacity so first added a bag hook under the seat then mounted a rack for more serious hauling. Changed the seat to match the rack & allow bigger loads. Still getting used to it, good springs & padding so it's comfy but I sit a bit different than the old original that fit like favorite old shoes.
first there is welding to do, adding adapter brackets to attach w/ front tank bolts

The 50 Special seat may not the most comfortable but it's hands down one of the best looking.

What a crack up - I was thinking the exact same thing!

And Voodoo, you once again live up to your name... Hocus Pocus, alacazam. And mix a little chicken feather, goat saliva, and beeswax, and voila! Ha. Truly, a work of art my friend. You are the "Voodoo Master". You must've been hanging out with ebeth....

You're killing me over here! Maybe that's why I find your avatar so distracting and maybe why I spent so much time polishing the leggy trim to properly package the goods.

Thanks for your take but the paint is shite, although it is happy shite. Razz emoticon
Lemme get you a pic in good lite w/ no camera tricks. The whole package came out much better than I expected so I'm happy with the interesting interplay between all the different blues on there. Goofy emoticon

I guess 'stunning' works. I used all the best stuff: High Performance Enamel in Royal Blue by Rustoleum on the doors, wheels & plastic tail lite. Then Ultra Cover 2X in Wildflower Blue satin also by Rustoleum on the frame with a small touch of Premium Automotive in GM Light Blue Metallic by Dupli-Color on the mudguard for variety. All except Royal Blue waxed & shined.

Still on the lookout for a better match but no urgency.

Had the 2-3 shift cable on my V90 break at the butterfly in the headset.
I had seen V oodo's trick using a bungee to stretch the cables. Changed both cables, put clamps on the ends and connected the bungee that I looped thru a ladder to keep the tension.
After checking the shifter was set on neutral, adjusted and tightened the pinch bolts then soldered the cables and trimmed. All done in 5 minutes not including time to remove and refit new cables.
Making the job even easier, on the pinch bolts I used an 8 mm ignition wrench to hold the pinch bolt body and a ¼" drive handle with a 7mm socket on the set screw. Moves your tightening hand back out of the tight space.

not sure if I ever posted this bike on here before but here is the most current trouble maker in our herd. we've been chasing a truly mysterious air leak. and we are no stranger to air leaks here. there is something inside the motor that is destroying the seal on the fly side (replaced it 2x with the same issue) so we have to pop open the case again and see if there's a metal burr in there that we have to shave off.

That PGO is wild Nutmeg! It looks half smallframe, half largeframe, half 4T Bajaj Chetak, and a smidge of a 80's style Honda Aero. Where in the heck did you find the new gem?

isn't it fun?!!! and to think we have another complete frame in boxes in the attic of our shed. The two we have came from Vancouver BC. We got this complete one from a friend of ours. it was actually the first small frame that I ever sat on back in 2011 (i think)... the cowls come off like a large frame. The headset is totally crazy. it looks like a PK from the exterior at first glance except that crazy horncast blinker setup. however its totally like a primavera underneath and on the fork....
the facebook group for the PGO owners of america only has 9 members so I don't think there's that many out there. our second one is going to need a whole lot of work and it will not have a stock motor since I don't think I want to ship one from Taiwan over here.

$200 Barn Find 1974 vespa 90
Hello everyone, my first ever post here, New to M.V. My first small frame. It's a little rough as it was sitting under the overhang of a barn for several years, owner said he had it running 3 years ago. Engine is seized, assuming its a little rust on the ring. Have the head off w/penetrating oil on it for 2 weeks, still seized. Never rebuilt a vespa before, only a puch moped. But I've oned a p125x and a p200 in the past. Planning on a full rebuild. Maybe a polini 130 kit. SIP or Polini banana. The blue paint was rattle canned on over the orig. teal paint. Fairing is dented up a bit. Good amt of rust. Going to try and do everything myself, I can weld. Goin to try and learn to paint..

Missing the battery door

909 orig miles

Any advice or tips appreciated

you decide
If it's gonna be a number of pages w/ lots of detail, you could start your own thread. But if it's gonna be 3 or 4 or 5 posts, it IS a smallie and right here is fine. I just posted a short project here with good response, and you can too - https://modernvespa.com/forum/post2332692#2332692

Too late I see, you already have a good thread started and I too like this look. A lot.

Alice. The new project
Had Gickspeed build a new motor that I was going to put in Elena (Lady in Red)
but got carried away buying parts and decided to try and find another frame.
The motor is a Pinasco Zuera 145 built on a new SIP case with a PM Tuning pipe and. Pinasco 24 carb.
Found a complete 1975 V90 from a contact in St Louis that is the perfect donor for the project. Going to have her painted by a local grefitti artist so named her Alice after Alice Pasquini a Roman street artist.
Will start a build thread in the spring when I have everything collected
For now here are some pics of the frame, motor and inspiration

Hmmm, is somebody maybe shifty addicted? Now gonna be a two timer w/ separate garages or chance it w/ a threesome?

Excuse that, the pause at this pic gave modest titepants. This seems like the Dream Project! You must be rolling in dough or rolling in luck or both. You turned OK Elena into awesome and this has all the potential to top that.

Thanks V oodoo

Not rolling in dough. Just slow steady payments to Gickspeed from my retirement checks over 6 months.
After collecting Pinasco modular rims with tires and assorted other pieces I realized that for the cost of a harness, cable kit, switches and odd rubber bits if I could find a complete large door smallie that was solid and priced right I could just keep making deposits to Scooter Mercato and SIP over the winter so won't feel the $ drain

Gonna be a sweet bike Rick. Maybe ask Alice or Gick to put some exhaust paint on that PM40... the steel version will show surface rust pretty quickly if left unpainted.

The pipe will be ceramic coated satin black like Elena's is

We tried a Pinasco shot clutch but tabs broke on installation. Kept the Pinasco CNC basket and used a Newfren 4 plate 6 spring clutch.

To finish answering V oodoo's question.
The girls will live fine together. Elena is the lovely redhead you take to your folks for Sunday dinner and Alice is her tattooed cousin that you date with no commitments.

Re: Alice. The new project

Had Gickspeed build a new motor that I was going to put in Elena (Lady in Red)
but got carried away buying parts and decided to try and find another frame.
The motor is a Pinasco Zuera 145 built on a new SIP case with a PM Tuning pipe and. Pinasco 24 carb.
Found a complete 1975 V90 from a contact in St Louis that is the perfect donor for the project. Going to have her painted by a local grefitti artist so named her Alice after Alice Pasquini a Roman street artist.
Will start a build thread in the spring when I have everything collected
For now here are some pics of the frame, motor and inspiration
Looks like a fun project. Artistic paint with a solid power plant! 8)

Just brought this one home today. Original paint color, but not original paint. Starts and runs well. I'd say it is probably 98% complete parts wise.

The pipe will be ceramic coated satin black like Elena's is

We tried a Pinasco shot clutch but tabs broke on installation (it's a known problem). Kept the Pinasco CNC basket and used a Newfren 4 plate 6 spring clutch.

This is shocking! How does this happen and what did Pinasco say? I have just built a motor using this very clutch.

All stock except 12v electronic ignition. Don't want to go crazy with upgrades. Would I notice a difference if I put a dr130 kit on it and just upjetted the main keeping stock exhaust? Is it worth the $157? I like the idea of keeping it stock but would like a little more oomph. Suggestions welcome.

Pretty bike, pretty paint!

Get the real aluminum leggy trim someday maybe, it's a PIA to install right, but worth it IMO.

1. The DR is OK, but my buddy swears this is a better deal, aluminum alloy, lots of power @ about same money.

2. I might have a better muff idea for you, the stock one will hold you back on either kit. Let's see what happens... This has just now become available & reasonable, I believe:
