Absoluut ! Kyk, ek het mos 'n ding in my lewe om kak te koop en myself baie moeite op te saal, en aanvanklik was ek skepties oor die bus, maar nou smile ons.

Die scooter is nou all time bo aan die lys  :imaposer: Maar uiteindelik sal ek hom sort en geniet... hoop ek.

Jis wat 'n lekker fred.

Lag ek nou lekker vir die opmerkings, die arme Vespa vat darm mar shots jong.

Lyk na 'n baie lekker projekie in vergelyking met jou ander meer challenging projekte.

Baie sterkte, ek dink jy moet die kinders inspan om jou te help met die een.

Vat vas... :thumleft:

Nee ek gaan. As hy eers reguit loop gaan ek hom met 'n kwas wit hammerite verf, net om die roes te stop en dan gaan ek paar blikkies water enamel verf koop en vir die kinders en kleinkinders gee om te verf net soos hulle lus het.

Dropped the scooter off with Wolweseun on Saturday. Him and his buddy Thor got stuck into it with some serious levers, pulleys and block and tackles. The oke who crashed it must have taken one hell of a knock, because that body is hard.

Best not to see a mechanic at work. What matters is its now straight. Forgot to take pics.

Vorder maar stadig. Sukkel om motivering te kry. Soos dit maar gaan, elke keer as ek iets op een plek doen, kry ek iets wat op ander plek fuktup is.

maybe I have another solution. Anyone in my vicinity who feels like putting the scooter back together for me for a small consideration.

I know how you feel, I had several Vespas in the late 70s and early 80s ... based on these memories I bought a brand new LML150 (same as the old Vespa PX150) in 2014.  Needless to say, the old Vespas no longer feel safe in today's traffic.  I sold it in 2016 with only 1,800kms on the clock.  I had a similar experience with a '72 Citroen DS20 ... I had wonderful memories of gliding over the road in my youth.  These memories quickly faded when I drove one for a few days in 2012.
Out of the saddle since 1994, back in since 2014. Currently nipping around on a Honda PCX150.  

Bikes Owned: 1958 NSU Prima 150 Scooter, 1965 Vespa 150, 1975 Vespa 150, 1979 Honda 400T Hawk II, 1981 Honda GL500 Silver Wing Interstate, 1982 Honda GL1100 Gold Wing Interstate, 1981 Honda XR500R, 2014 LML 150, 1999 Aprilia Pegaso 650, 2014 Honda PCX150.
