This is the 3rd time I've recommended motorsports today. I think I deserve some commission or something. Where you at Max? Razz emoticon
Call them though, I've bought an Astate badge from them before. Betcha they have the rivets also. If they don't www.mcmaster.com will.
Good luck!

Nice work, I would be afraid to ride it once it is completed. You should ride it on Sundays on a nice day to really enjoy it.

Keep up the good work.

I wasn't too faune of the classic vespa's but your little beauty there has changed my mind. Nice color too, My mother would get her 1962 Ford Galaxie painted in that same coloe everyother year. We lived on the ocean and paint didn't last that long in these conditions. Again a wonderful ALLSTATE SCOOTER.

Wow, sure is shiny.

I like the color a lot, I'd probably have done the rims in a dark blue or something contrasty, but that paint looks amazing.

The Allstates had white rims originally. I think it a good look.
