Thanks for posting the pics. Good luck with your project (and with the sciatica!). I'm looking forward to following along!

Do you know the history on this bike?
edit: I had missed your intro post, where you mentioned this got damaged during riots in Paris... but then I wonder, how did it end up in Poland?

Well, my cousin's friend trades in used motorcycles/scooters. Imports from France. He imported this scooter but no one wanted to buy it, so I got it as a gift. I like a challenge, I've had several Vespa scooters in my life, so why not? I will try to do something with it, so I do

Sessions with a physical therapist group and acupuncture and time fixed my sciatica. Very painful early on!
I was riding - but could not walk or stand.
Good luck with that!
O.S.

Cześć,

Kontynuuję pracę. Chroniłem ramę i przód przed korozją. Użyłem dwóch produktów: polimerowego klasztoru rdzy i spryskałem cynkiem.

I used painkillers and was better. Now I can work normal, but I work shortly and don't bend

Hi,

I continue working. I protected the frame and front from corrosion. I used two products: a polymer rust converter and a zinc spray.

Do you have any photos of the tools you used? I'd be interested to know how you did it.
