The 2-stroke Vespa is a style icon - an undoubted classic, and an immediately recognised symbol of its native Italy. Demand for these stylish scooters is booming, and interest in restoring and renovating them is at an all-time high. With its clear and concise text aided by extensively captioned full colour photographs, this practical book guides the DIY enthusiast through all the stages of restoring a classic 2-stroke Vespa, taking it from a rusty unroadworthy wreck back to its factory fresh, former glory. It shows how to assess wear in all mechanical components, then assists in deciding the best and most cost effective method to renovate or repair. Both large and small frame power units are covered in detail, giving the reader confidence to carry out their own repairs to a high standard, which is both satisfying and cost effective. Brakes, suspension, electrical systems and brightwork are all addressed, from changing a bulb to welding in a new floor pan. It is an essential reference for all Vespa enthusiasts.
