I recently got my hands on my maternal grandfather's (Nana's) Vespa.
He passed away after an accident on this very scooter and since then, my uncles kept it for sentimental value but did not put it into use.
Later on, my mother got it transported from Karachi to Wah Cantt, where it was damaged during transport. Ever since then, it has sat outside, exposed to the elements as well as considerable construction work that happened in my house.
After much debate and convincing, I finally managed to get my mother and uncles to agree to let me inherit and restore/mod it for my own leisurely rides
I would appreciate all help I can get. Currently there are 2 major issues I need some help with!
- Identifying the model for this Vespa. I know it says IGM 3884 S on the carburetor, which according to my searches puts it between 1959-1966? But I would appreciate some expert insight.
- I would highly adore some information on places to get it restored and modded from, within the limits of Islamabad/Rawalpindi. I personally do not possess the skill set to take on the project myself (medical student so also have pretty less time :[ ).
