Default Vespa service in Chennai

Is there a good service center for Vespa scooters in Chennai ? I have a 14yr old T5, which I hate to part with. I wont even get peanuts or perichambalam for that now.

The engine is great; but quite a few other parts need some love. New tyres, seats, headlight dome, brake/gear cables, and some de-rusting, dent removal/paint work.
Do we still get vespa spares? Is it worth doing it?

go to pudupet, you will get the spares, but finding a capable mechanic will be very tough.

There are a few shops in the GPRoad - Pudupet area that still stock LML spares. Ask around, other shop keepers are not hessitant to tell you where you will find them if they dont have it.

Apologise for me bringing back a thread from the dead, but I am currently in the lookout for good mechanics to restore an old Vespa. I was wondering if Ballkey could help me out on this. Thanks!
