Vespa upgrades




Finally back on the road proper today - got back from holiday a couple of weeks ago and then dropped scoot into Retrospective Scooters for a service and once over. This turned into a slightly larger than expected project as the barrel and piston were badly worn with black scorch marks on the piston; a re-bored top end was required along with grippier tyres for the upcoming wet weather and a much needed new exhaust, as my 4-year + SIP Road pipe had already been patched up, after friend Warren had welded it back together for me.

Now fitted with an upgraded SIP Road 2.0 - an excellent pipe as I know from experience, nicely made and a great fit onto the barrel according to the Retrospective guys. I also treated the scoot to a new SIP Performance front shock absorber, which makes a big difference to the ride quality.
