I’m Rebuilding My Vespa P200E All By Myself… Part 3
So I got stood up… On a Saturday night…
I know, right?!? I couldn’t believe it, either.
Anyway, I decided to channel my irritation into doing the scary part: dropping the motor out of the Vespa. Since the rear wheel was attached to the motor, I was pretty sure something exciting would happen when all of that came free from the frame. This part was supposed to take two people, but I had the frustrated strength of ten men. If you’ve seen the pictures, you’d know why I wasn’t worried about the probability of dropping the bike, as this Vespa has kissed the ground on many an occasion.
Yay, clear motor! Boo, way, way more grime to clean off now that the whole P200e motor was exposed. More scraping, more caustic cleaners, more meditative, slow time in my garage.
