Having looked at the rust and thinking of getting another frame I decided to start digging out the rust last night.
Will get out the grinder this week at some point and make a template and then proceed from there.

Looks like that needs re framing.
Shame they rot so badly, I have a few et's and lx's myself.
Great little scooters.
