'64 Vespa 50 Smallframe V5A1

Postby supercub » Sat Jul 31, 2010 6:53 pm

I picked this up a couple of years back, but never got around to fixing it. I did ride it a few miles but the crank bearings were so bad that it was hard to keep going. It was marketed for Italy, as it has the smaller 9" wheels and no brake light or speedo.
I pulled the engine out today, and except for the crank bearings, everything else is mint. I checked the compression, 150 PSI. It is next to impossible to get a compression tool inside of the small cavity of the engine compartment.
I really like the smallframe Vespas because the body is more streamlined and the engines are located more in the center of the bike than the larger ones. They range from the 50 to the primevera 125.This one has the tractor style seat but they also made a cafe style seat that was on the 50 sport, that one had a rectangular headlight and electric start.

Yeah, it is in pretty good shape. It's basically like a 1 cylinder bug. Actually, looking over my paperwork I saw that it is a 1963. I found one exhaust manifold stud that has a worn area on the threads. I don't know if it is threaded into the casting or cast in place.
I also have to deal with the gas tank, it is rusty inside. I may just farm out that job, I don't feel like dealing a smelly re-line job when it is beach and ped riding season.
