    Vespa 50 Special - Falc 57x54 Project

    Well now I've had a long think about it I'm going to be starting my project, not going to have a target finish date just going to take it steady. Well ill be starting soon just waiting on some tools before I strip it down.

    Anyways for the plan I will be stripping the scooter down first of course, then send the cases off for welding and milling while in the process of waiting for the kit, I will then be prepping the body for painting, and I will also be getting the headset converted into drops. No doubt this plan will change, and yes its going to be EXPENSIVE i know Sad

    Now then for the list of needed parts:

    - Falc Kit (57x54) Primaries, Crank, Clutch etc.
    - Pk Forks
    - Brake Disc
    - SIP Digital Speedo
    - SIP Tubeless Rims
    - Suspension (not to sure yet)
    - Going to paint Audi S3 Blue
    - Much more to list......

    Got a few more little ideas that I'm keeping till later Wink

    Thanks Shaggy for answering all my silly questions already haha.

    so how are you doing the carbon fibre chassis? are you going to chop and fab it onto your existing frame or just have the whole thing carbon fibre?

    Im going to have to chop the back end off and the carbon chassis are made abit bigger so the slide over and then i shall have to strenghten it up by welding seams and if i have which i dont want to i may have to weld a bar in the middle so it doesnt flex will have to see though Smile

    Personally I'd just tune the fuck out of the engine. Upgrade brakes and suspension, and leave the rest as is. Pure sleeper! Wink

    i think sleepers are cool tbh but hey if you want carbon fibre do it,

    theres that german 50 special with a bar welded in, it did have a monster of an engine in it, but it looked ok with the bar
