I just bought my first scooter 3 days ago. It's a '59 Allstate Super Cruisaire (788.94494). It's got a new motor and runs like a champ, but I have a good bit of restoration work ahead of me.
I am completely new to all of this. and am looking to get adivse on my scooter. I know the basic history of it (Sears), etc. What I am looking for is information on my model, and reputable places to get parts. When I look at online parts inventories, it's typically listed by scooter model, and mine never seems to be listed. It is my understanding that the Cruisaire is synonymous with the Vespa VNA; is this correct?
For example, I need to buy a new seat for it. Where can I go to get information on what size seat will fit my scooter? Is there somewhere that I can download/buy a manual on the Cruiseaire?
Also, I can find bits of info on the Cruiseaire, but nothing specifically on the Super Cruisaire. What's different between the two?
I want to learn as much as I can about my Allstate.
