I am going to do a rustoration on my 1960 series 2, the runners are quite coroded with holes,same as legshields ,but i want it to look as found after being behind a shed since 76.Looked in the m.o.t manual can't see anything about sharp edges, has anybody else done a rustoration with corrosion in panels, i obviosly want it safe,what is the best way of fixing down the holed damage,but keeping the original look,if that makes sense,any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers all
Ian

I think the general premise of 'road worthy ness' applies here.

Is your S2 currently on the road [has a V5]?

If not and you are registering it you will still need to present it to an MOT testing station in order to get the DVLA to issue a V5.

At that point [an MOT tester looking through the holes in your scooters leg shields and deeming it unroadworthy] that you'll come unstuck.

If you are really set on a 'holey' scooter panel work then best to fit them after you have it on the road.

Good luck [and post pics if you can]. I have 2 rustoration S2s and a shabby frame-breather.

Oh, and check the integrity of the frame tube prior to throwing money at the engine [or anything else].

They do rot out and when they fail its pretty spectacular!

Sorry for the late response idc23, i still have the leggies and PM me if you're interested.

They are spanish so no front mudguard mounts [spanish turning type used on these]. Very thick steel, need blasting and prepping. I'll send pics if you like.
