I already know it would have been easier to just buy a complete one, but I am going to save a piece of history, rather than ride off into the sunset so bear with me, but feel free to tear into my ill-advised project as well, I don't mind. I have a high level of comfort with Vespa as well as auto restorations, so I am looking forward to a fun project. OK- housekeeping aside, here is my rough plan: get the scoot put together roughly with whatever will "work" until I can source the missing parts.
I have a Bajaj VBB with an lml reed motor which I plan to use. What parts can be made to work, and what parts will flat out not fit? I know I can source cowls and fender, I *think* the lml will fit in the engine bay but I am not sure what else will carry over, or can be modified to fit- looking for guidance.
If you have read this far, thank you The fork seems to be my biggest issue (finding one) has anyone had one fabricated, or a different model modified to fit? I KNOW this has been done in Asia at some point, but I would like to hear from those who have created a workaround for the original.
Thank you in advance for you help on this, I promise to keep you posted on the progress.
