Bodywork Repair & Resprays
An absolutely essential part of any vintage Vespa or Lambretta restoration is the bodywork repair and respray. Whilst some may choose to leave it as it is and have a great commuter scooter that they can leave in town without worrying, most will be looking to have the bodywork resprayed to an as new condition.
Anyone who has ever owned a Vespa knows they are prone to a bit of rust and the odd dent here and there! Even the most careful owner will have trouble keeping evil rust from the Vespas all metal bodywork particularly after 30-40 years.
Well, we are proud to say that our bodywork and respray service is widely regarded as the best there is – even better than the factory finish.
Whether it is a full Vespa restoration, a basic respray or just an accident repair – you can be confident that we will ensure that the paint work is immaculate and to your own colour specifications.
We can match any colour scheme and every respray includes full sand blasting to bare metal, rust proofing, stone-chip treatment to the underside. Our re-spray facility only works on vintage Vespas and Lambrettas and we have undertaken hundreds of bodywork restorations.
A selection of Vespa restorations can be seen in the images on the right and if you do not see something that you like, then just get in touch and tell us what you are after.
(On the right, you can see, in all it's restored glory, a 1966 Vespa Sprint that belongs to Bradley Hall of the New Originals Scooter Club. This wonderful scooter was restored by Retrospective Scooters after it was imported from Isola D'Elba, the Italian island once famed for being the home of Napoleon. It now has the benefit of a PX200 engine. These pictures were taken by Paul Hart of Vespamore.com and show what a classic, restored Vespa can look like when undertaken with care, precision and a touch of love too!).
