What do you think of when you hear the word “Restoration” applied to a vehicle project? Your answer may be different than mine, and that’s probably why some auction sites prohibit the use of the word. For me “restore” means complete disassembly, repair, component renovation/replacement, reinstallation and testing.
What’s the worst restoration job? Cleaning!
It took eight hours to clean just the engine on this project. If the engine needed a complete rebuild the job would have been easier- I could have taken everything apart and dropped it in the parts washer. But not this scooter!
