Hello Everyone,

My name is Wesley, i'm from Holland. I've been following this forum the last couple of years but haven't post much yet.
I've almost finished my vespa now, so i thought it's time to show you guys what i made out of it.

It all started with a 50cc Vespa LX frame which i bought with some damages on the sides, nothing really bothering.
I wanted to modify 3 things:

1: bigger wheels (hated the space between front wheel and fender and the difference between 11 inch in the front and 10 inch in the back)
I also like the better looks of it, it more looks like a motorscooter now.
It also gives better handling with bigger wheels
2: watercooled engine instead of air cooled (can make it faster with a 70 / 80 cc cilinder and it runs better when its on workingtemp if it's an lc cooled engine)
3: Discbrake in the back, faster means you got to have better brakes so i wanted to go from drum to disc.
Same thing with the wheels, i also like the better looks of having discbrakes in the front and in the back.

Here are some pictures:
