All Vespa Scooter Restoration

First, let us say that we put our trust into the hands of some very experienced mechanics. Our reputation starts and finishes with our staff. We have no doubt that our mechanics are some of the best Vespa mechanics out there. Before working for our All Vespa™ Restorations 7 years ago, they were fixing Vespas and Lambrettas for a very long time (2 with over 17 years experience). They helped define our criteria for what needs replacing, and how to make our Vespa scooters run smoothly for a long time.


Restoration includes:
Complete strip down and replacement of all rubber hoses, brake shoes, front and rear shocks, springs, seats, tires, tubes, cables, odometer, locks, all electrical wiring, and electronic parts, leg fender shield trim, floor strips, and rubber trim. All pictures below are actual scooters that have been shipped to customers.
All models listed are 150 CC. 


Restoration quality: An important note - many scooters are restores hastily and a fair amount of them are not done well...if you've done your research - you'll more than likely come to this conclusion. We restore the Vespas the correct way. The original body and engine are restored to its original condition. We do our best to display as many pictures (typically 600 X 450) to allow you to get as many details as you can of the restoration. We are absolutely certain you'll be happy with the restoration quality. If for whatever reason you aren't satisfied with the quality - contact us and we'll make it right. We have never had an unhappy customer, and we don't want to have a first.

Vespa Scooter red vespa restoration checklist


When choosing an original 1960's classical Italian Vespa scooter, you have 3 models to choose from; VBB (began manufacture in 1960), VLB, or VBC. All scooters body frames are stripped down to bare metal. All rubber, plastic, leather, aged aluminum trim cover, electrical wires, and harness are thrown away. The frame is then sent to the body shop to be inspected for cracks, welding material, and other abnormalities before the alignment step. After inspecting we apply a primer coat then finish with high-quality color paint.
