Build The Classic Vespa.

Stage 1

Stage 1 Contents:
Upper handlebar cover, Speedometer components, Lower handlebar cover, Vespa GS badge, Warning light lens, Ignition lock, screws and screw covers.

Note- you are provided with enough screws to complete each section but without any spares. Any screws or nuts not used will be used later in the build so store them carefully in a labeled bag.

To assemble the speedometer, fit the 'glass' into the silver bezel frame. Make sure the parts are the correct way round with the two notches fitting over the notches in the glass. With the larger of the two sets of pins to the top, fit the speedometer into the frame. Fit the speedometer into the upper handlebar cover, noting the larger pins go to the front, then press the speedometer assembly firmly into place.

Holding the assembly in place, turn it over and offer up the speedometer case to the inside of the cover. Fix the two arms of the speedometer case to the cover using the two black crosshead screws provided, being careful not to overtighten.

Fit the ignition lock into the forward keyhole-shaped socket above the speedometer noting the back of the lock has a projecting lug that ensures it will only fit one way. Press firmly into position.

Like the lock, the light lens has a small projection that ensures it will only fit one way round in the keyhole-shaped socked nearest the speedometer.

Press the light lens fully into place so it fits flush.Holding the lock in place, turning the assembly over and secure the lock in place with the small silver crosshead screw provided, take care not to overtighten it.

This stage is now complete.

Store any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 6

Stage 6 Contents:
Rear Stub axle, Swingarm Pivot Cover, Shock Absorber Mounting Bracket, Rear Brake Operating Arm, Dummy Fixing Bolts, Brake Arm Return Spring, Open-Ended Spanner, Hex-Headed Screws, Flanged Screw and Swingarm Pivot.

Slide the flat portion of the swingarm pivot into the corresponding flat inside the holes in the swingarm. If you have lined up the flat sections correctly, the swingarm pivot will push all the way in. If not, turn the swingarm pivot until it does. Take the swingarm pivot cover and line up the four small pins with the matching recesses in the swingarm casting, then fit the cover and press it all the way home.

Align the brake operating lever with the side of the swingarm. It is advisable to test fit the screw into the post on the swingarm, as it will cut its own thread, making it easier to assemble the operating arm.

Fit the operating arm over the post then fit the return spring over the post, pushing the shorter pin into the hole in the swingarm. Rotate the projecting end of the spring anti-clockwise until you can fit it into the groove running down the operating arm. Then, holding the assembly together, take the black screw with the wide flanged head supplied in Stage 4 and drive the screw into the post to retain the operating arm and spring. Check the end of the spring still sits in the groove, ensure the lever moves freely and the spring returns it to its position.

Hold the assembly the correct way up, align the shock absorber mounting bracket over the holes in the swingarm. Take the two dummy fixing bolts which have an extended shaft above the hexagonal head and insert one into an upper hole in the shock absorber mounting and tighten finger tight. Fit the second dummy bolt in the same way, then tighten both with the ‘B’ end of the spanner.Turn it over and use the two hex-headed bolts to attach the bracket to the other side.

Insert the rear stub axle into the swingarm until the hex head sits flush in the socket.

This stage is now complete.

Store any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 7

Stage 7 Contents:
Clutch Operating Arm, Clutch Cover, Clutch Cable Stop, Fixing Screws, Engine/Transmission Case, Clutch Operating Arm Return Spring and Flanged screw.

Take the clutch operating arm and the swingarm assembly from Stage 6. The clutch operating arm fits over the post on the swingarm and is retained by the flanged screw. It is advisable to test fit the screw first so it will cut its own thread, making it easier to assemble the operating arm.

Fit the clutch operating arm onto the post ensuring it is the correct way up. Then fit the return spring into the recess, the lower end of the spring goes into the small hole in the swingarm and the upper end sits in the notch of the operating arm. Secure in position with the flanged screw being careful not to overtighten. It should prevent the spring from popping out of the slot but allow the operating arm to swivel and spring back when released.

Take the engine/transmission case and align with the three holes on the swingarm. Once the case is fixed in position it will lock the hexagonal head of the stub axle into the swingarm.

Use three of the screws provided in this stage, hold the parts in alignment and drive the screws into the holes,only tighten fully when all three screws are in place.

Take the clutch cover and align with the 3 projecting pins on the transmission case and push together. The cover is a tight push fit.

Fit the hole on the clutch cable stop over the bracket on the side of the swingarm. Drive the last remaing screw through the cable stop and bracket into the projecting arm of the engine/transmission case.

This stage is now complete.

Store any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 8

Stage 8 Contents:
Gear Selector, Kickstart Lever, Kickstart Pedal Rubber, Kickstart Casing, Starter Selector Cam, Gear Selector Support, Kickstart Return Spring, Gear Selector Return Spring, Countersunk Fixing Screws and Silver Flanged Screws.

Fit the pedal rubber to the kickstart lever, fitting the oval hole over the matching end of the casing noting that the ribbed end goes on first, then press the rubber on tightly.

Take the kickstart return spring, noting which way round it goes, then fit the spring into the recess in the centre of the kickstart casing. Note: the shorter projecting end, which bends downwards, needs to slot into slot ‘A’,leaving the longer projecting end in position ‘B’, as shown in steps 6 and 7 of the instructions.

Now take the starter selector cam placing it on top of the return spring,hooking the longer end of spring into the notch on the cam. Carefully holding the cam and spring in place, fit the shaft on the end of the kickstart lever into the hole in the kickstart casing. Note that the flat end of the shaft needs to be oriented so that it lines up with the 'D' shaped hole in the cam. Use a flanged screw to retain the cam on the shaft, making sure the cam and spring to not pop out of place as you tighten the screw.

Holding the kickstart casing to stop it from rotating, check the operation of the kickstarter by pressing it downwards. You should hear a click as it operates, (which will operate the engine start-up effect). When you release the lever, the spring should return it to its original position.

Align the gear selector support with the 3 holes on the casing, and screw together with the three countersunk fixing screws. Once all the screws are inserted, tighten down fully. It is important that the gear selector support is solidly secured to the kickstart casing.

Identify the small hole next to the post on top of the gear selector support. Now take the gear selector and it's return spring, insert the spring into the selector, noting its orientation. Fit the gear selector and return spring over the post on the gear selector support, making sure the end of the spring goes into the hole in the casing identified previously. As it is locked into place, you will need to tension the spring in order to hook it over the outer notch in the gear selector. Secure in place with another flanged screw, but do not overtighten, as the selector needs to move freely.

Gently move the gear selector from side to side. The spring-loaded pawl fitted to the gear selector support should lock into each of the five notches in the end of the selector, and the return spring should take the selector back to the start position when the pawl is raised.

This stage is now complete.

Store any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 10

Stage 10 Contents:
Fan motor.

The fan motor fits in the recess in the engine/transmission casing.You need to position the motor so the wires will exit from the stepped recess.

Insert the motor fully into the recess so that the drive shaft protrudes through the casing and ensure the wiring isn't being crushed when assembling. The motor should sit just below the level of the surrounding casing.

This stage is now complete.

Store any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.
