Some good reading here. Thanks Marco. Your Euro sign had me fooled for a second -- We don't often get quotes/prices in Euro's ....

I'll have a closer look when time permits later.

Please stay in touch and don't be a stranger.

Cheers
Colin.
 
Great stuff Marco , looks like you are busy with some intersting projects .
 
yesterday we bundle up everything for sandblasting
IMG_3489.jpg

IMG_3492.jpg

in sum 7 frames and many parts

we have a good friend living near regensburg bavaria who can blast it for less money = 70CAD you preffer amarican oder canadian dollar?

or 400 malboro cigarettes (in germany) ;-)


then yesterday a policeman visit us
he heard about some guys making vespa stuff

project 8 - what should we do? he is the law ;-)
https://picasaweb.google.com/Marco....authkey=Gv1sRgCIiawNvHw6OUhwE&feat=directlink
also v50 spezial from about 1978
new shield and sandblasting
because the last owner "repaired" with many mud (you call it)
an like we in germany say "russisch"
engine will be also a 125ccm because the owner has the old car license


on project 3 called adi
(the 16 year old child - his name is mathias but we call him adi = his vespa has a dealer-sticker on the shild - dealers name was adi - vespas name now is adi and mathias also called adi)
we changed the clutch an the brake linings in the back
and at the change of the front linings we noticed that the
brake drum isnt good as we want
the surface has rills (no picture sry)
a new brake drum cost only 87CAD or 60 balls big icecream
but young people dont have monay for spare parts
only for smoking and drinking so we bore the surface
hope you know what i mean


and we build some winter wheels
last year we had great fun with our vespa
in the snow with snowdrive v1.0

Snow wheel V1.0

IMG 2074 - YouTube
sry video ist twisted
and yesterday we overhauled the wheel
why?
Foto4.jpg

Foto5.jpg


for getting more stability we weld a ring on the shovel
IMG_3517.jpg

IMG_3518.jpg


ok the weld seam is "russisch" but its a prototyp
with the new ring called "Schneeantrieb V1.1" = snowdrive V1.1

in the front we will mount a old ski for steering

now we only need snow ;-)

Crazy Germans , building a snow Vespa :rofl:

Had a look at the video's and pictures you linked Marco , great work my friend :coolgleam:
 

hahaha, you've been busy -- nice living room.....:D

I'll have a red, white, and a maroon one.

Please post more info on engines, displacement, horsepower (stock and modified) -- speed capabilities, when you can.

Coincidently, Marg and I were shopping today and went into a nostalgia shop and there on the wall was a 3'x4' poster of about 3 dozen Vespas. Looked like they'd be right at home in your living room....

Just thought I'd share.

Colin.
 
on the living room picture
vespas sortet by building year

the right one is from 1969
the left one with the side car ist from india an 1991 build
ill think their only a few (maybe 100 pieces) vespas with sidecar in germany
looks funny but not funny to drive
hard work ;-)

next monday i hope we can start with building some engines
waiting on spare parts!


in next time i can show you:
mill intake
mill outtake
open pistonshirt
open over-current
measuring the control time
and adapt the crank shaft
dress to size the cylinder
and cylinderhead
polish all areas...

hard to explain in german what we have to do
harder in englisch ;-)
many thanks to leo.org
he helped me so much!
 
man all those V's in your l'room look brand spanking new. You fellas do fine work. Kudos.

I hadn't fathomed the sidecar setup until you pointed that out -- would love to see a full picture of it sometime.
I understand it must be a very rare piece and one of your most treasured.

LOL, you're doing very well with English, Marco -- indeed miles ahead of how I would do with deutsch............

auf wiedersehen is about my limit other than a few counting numbers.

Look forward to specs and taredown/reassembly info on the V's.

Cheers,
Colin
 
if you want it youll get it ;-)

or our living room
https://picasaweb.google.com/Marco....authkey=Gv1sRgCKXVtMuj2_qu4wE&feat=directlink


in german side-car = Bei-Wagen

we call it "bajajwagen" sounds like Beiwagen

bajaj = the license producer of vespas in india
also in america you can get them -> Bajaj Chetak Scooter
but thees are new ones
ive imported an old bajaj chetak from india


auf wiedersehen is a good word to say goodbye
it means that you want to see the person again


but in bavaria we say "servus" as hello and goodbye
if you google it youll find the latein meaning "slave"
but when you say "servus" it means: always at your service
like iam your slave

Thanks for the links -- looks like no dealers very near me in southern Ontario Canada but there are many in the US the closest being Michigan or Ohio.

Looks like there is a dealer close to a friend in Pennsylvania -- I'll have to ask him if he's seen any Vespas there. Probably has.
I really had no idea that they were still popular -- I wouldn't doubt that there's a few around here hidden away....

I have to say again that, altho all your Vespas are great looking, the side-car (Bei-Wagen) looks the most intriguing and attractive.
I would love it as many I'm sure do.

Cheers for all the info -- I'm taking up a lot of your time...

When you're not too busy, please post up more info and pics. Love it!.

Danke Schoen,

auf wiedersehen und servus --:D

Colin.

engine will fire on this nice original one
P3290069.jpg

IMG_0420.jpg

we call it "willy maier" = name of the dealer maybe you can read on the sticker
its an original german vespa (maybe you remember my writing in first article)
german importet them from italy and put inidcator and a ring on it
special on this model - only 1000 pieces were ever made
we have one - not in best condition but also beautiful

like my 7th project
scrap for good
but with fire ;-)

1st we demounted the engine

Marco,
Wow, just looked on ebay motors and there are 2 Bei-Wagen's for sale -- one in Indonesia and one in the US -- the US '69 black one looks mint (and priced as such too @ $6kUSD!)
Can't hurt to dream anyway.
Maybe I should settle for a "willy maier" :D -- or is that one worth mucho dinero too?

Hey Marco, still going thru all the picture links and project links you posted.
You guys do some awesome work -- and thanks for taking the time to post

Sorry to hear that you caught a virus. Do you get the annual influenza shot over there to help prevent some of those sicknesses?
We have them here but it's estimated to help prevent only about 60% of the flu around this year.

I too hate the "no screewingdays" --- Let's hope you get back on track soon and don't get too far behind.

Cheers, Marco, feel better soon,

Servus,

Colin

P.S. - Maybe you can explain the no screewingdays. If it's what I think it is then you better save your energy. :D
