Here is one Vespa spotted and done up by my Garage. Not fully original and color combo is also not right but looks awesome.

This scooter looks amazingly beautiful. Good job done. Now-a-days its lucky to have one (Vespa) a priced possession.

Now-a-days white rubber parts are readily available for these beauties, I have been offered a complete set of rubbers in white for my scooter but refused as the quality is not that comparitve like the Senior rubber parts. I don't mind having black rubber beedings than having white and had to replace it often.

I bought the same in bangalore for 650 bucks some 9 months ago. It has a vespa script written on it. Non scripted one was 50 bucks cheaper. Apart from this lot of other repro stuff like white rubber, monograms etc. are also available.

These complete white rubber beading set acquired for my friend who is due to restore a vespa. This complete set comes with 2 handle grips with PIAGGIO logo embossed on it, break pedal rubber, kick rubber, dicky beading, petrol cap rubber with tap rubber, center mat (Old type) alimunium channel rubbers, dome beading (both sides). These parts will enhance the look of the scooter once complete.

nice, the white kit looks very beautiful,although a bit difficult to maintain but its worth,also add white wall inserts or tyres ,to give an additional touch,what colour are you doing to the scooter,here is the pic of my vespa

Your scooter looks very neat and I liked the color, I guess you have done the seats as in your WV's. I liked the period registration and number plate. I have my scooter completed but few things like touch ups, polishing, monogram fixing is due.
