Full Restoration of 1964 Vespa VNB 125





It is pretty shocking how much a fully restored classic vespa will set you back these days..

Long gone are the days when you could pick up project scoots at Imola's market for a few hundred pounds. These days vespas beyond conserving and in need of restoring are selling for £2000 in some cases. 

Add to that the costs of stripping, welding, panel beating, blasting, filling, prepping, painting and putting it all back together again with new parts, if required and finally the dealer's percentage to cover his staff's wages, rent and so on and it's not all that surprising that the selling price is now £5500..

Check out this excellent vid by Barnaby Newton which shows what really goes into a proper, thorough vespa resto these days.
