Name of scooter and reason: Ghost – one of my favourite songs… that simple really! Scooter model: Vespa PX. Date purchased and cost: July 2016 – £800. Inspiration for project: I had seen the rusty / patina look on trucks, vans etc. and wanted to do the same on a scooter. Engine spec: Malossi 166, Crank: Gas Flow Mazzucchelli, Carb: Standard, Exhaust: TSR Stainless Steel, Clutch: 4-plate Newfren, Gearbox: Standard. Is the scooter reliable: Fingers crossed… so far it’s been running very well. Starts first/second kick and runs very smoothly through the gears with great acceleration. Paintwork and murals done by: I rubbed it down completely and created a patina look then added a front number plate and rear race plate with an aged look… it’s meant to look like it’s just been found in a shed after many years in hibernation! Overall cost: Circa £3000. What was the hardest part of the project: Stabilising the rust… it got kinda carried away. Do you have any advice or tech tips for anyone starting a project: I don’t believe in second best… it took a lot of time and money to make it look so bad! In hindsight, is there anything you would have done differently: I guess I originally wanted Faroo Baso type bars or a GS headset but stuck to thee PX as that’s what I was most comfortable with. Is there anyone you wish to thank: Mark Green foor the Engine Porting and Rebuild, Steve Allen forr putting it all back together again, John for project managing the build and the constant change requests!
