Re: Sneak Peak

A little more done, I made some ally plates to mount the battery tray, fuel pump and electrics on. I will be changing the regulator/rectifier for a full wave unit. I think the one supplied is only a half wave unit and I need to run quite a lot of DC items from the battery. The ally plates may get ch...

Re: Sneak Peak

At this point I thought is was a good idea to fit a fuel sender in case I want to fit a fuel gauge. This will also give access for a 32mm socket to the fuel tap nut. Fuel sender bought also from Amazon about £20, it has a float that rises up a stainless steel shaft that has a coil of wire in it. 0 t...

Re: Sneak Peak

A few more, the fuel tank is next. Due to the tube framework I was unable to use the standard Vespa PK tank. I mocked up a tank in the space available using card, paper and masking tape. Next was to transfer the patterns to a flat sheet of 3mm aluminium. Ally tig welding the tank was fun to do, I ha...

Re: Sneak Peak

On with the show, framework next. The framework to support the rear end section is made from 20mm steel tube. We use a lot of this at work and is nice to bend and tig weld. I have a cheap plumbers pipe bender that I've welded some flat bar to so that it clamps nice in the vice. Most of the tube to t...

Re: Sneak Peak

So after a long hiatus I have finally got this project back on the bench. I've had to re upload some of my pictures from photobucket to flickr. SO here goes, the carbon fibre rear end I had made was not wide enough to go over the Quattrini engine cases. They are about 25mm - 30mm wider than stock so...

Re: Px125 London 1985

Some great photos there, all the boxes ticked. Flat top, white socks, moccasins, stone washed jeans and a chequered mud flap. Love it.

Re: Beedspeed.

This saddens me some what, I always used to use Beedspeed right from the very early 80's up to when they changed hands. Items always used to turn up the next day without fail. You could always talk to Alan and the gang at anytime on the telephone. How things have changed. Sad.
