Good day! Two weaks ago I bougt that beautiful Vespa PX200E Grand Sport in Ukraine. Condition is really leaves much to be desired. Among many other problems, the main problem is the deformed body inside. In the place where the rear shock absorber is attached. Due to this, the shock absorber does not work properly.
Can anyone share a photo as it should be?

How can this be fixed? Has anyone encountered this?
I will be grateful for any answer.

Yes it can be fixed. I've had it done. Find a welder who can hammer the shock support flat and add extra steel where it's torn/cracked to keep that from happening again. Welding it will burn your paint so plan on touching up the sides/ cover it with a sticker.

Wow! That is F'ing impressive! It should be the same as VNB/Sprint.

Heat that area up and use a slide hammer to pull back into place.

Incredible is all I can say.
