I have a Rally that was kind of a barn find. It belonged to someone who was in his 80s, and formerly a Vespa dealer. I bought in 2015, and it was incredibly complete and original, but also very weathered and rusty. The frame was really damaged by rust, but salvageable.
I never got around to the project and sold it.
I saw the person I sold it to list for sale, in pieces. He started to restore it.
So I bought it back. And ready to restore it (my goal is to finish by February).
This is what it looked like when I bought and sold the first time.
From a storage space in Santa Rosa.
When I brought it home. Serious patina.
After a bath
After cleaning it up, it looked pretty good.
This is what it looked like when I last saw it. Since then, it's been disassembled and painted. So it's a full restoration project.
