Re: please review Saigon SC vespa disk brake with anti-dive

I had that on my GS & it collapsed. I was told the axle pulled the bearings out & the hub fell off. My mate bought one at the same time, which we have checked and looks like it should be ok, we have also made sure the hub & axle match properly (tapper). We have not tested it yet, probably a month or...

Re: Moto Vespa (GS) Project

Going for the all in-one tank and seat combo with a rear filler cap. Akin to the ones that scooter in style produce. It's with the fabricator now. Simple low profile in black. You can buy that of the shelf now. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/604/23608645520_dfbf0c73c0_z.jpg 11217566_105510126117628...

Re: chemical paint stripping wanted

I do this stuff myself. Hand grinder and wire brush attachment. If you don't have the time try your local powder coat shop, they should either help or know a company that can. I have used a company that strip antique doors, but they took forever as they were not interested & charged a fortune.
