You can probably find everything you need online. Ebay is a good start.
That Allen wrench is probably gonna be metric.

7/32 inches = 5.56mm
1/4 inches = 6.35mm

i'd imagine it till be a 6mm.

If I had the time and an old Vespa, I'd have no hesitation to getting it going. Look up the price that those things sell for.

Talk to Matt at Scootersmith in the heights, probably point you in the right direction concerning parts and how to go about putting the beast back together.

Thumbs up Vespa

Cool little scooter. That thing could be worth a pretty penny, Do what hotnanas said and do some research. Sure, most regular shops would work on it, but I'd check with House of Paint I've heard some great things about those folks, They can handle body & paint, and can probobly get a line on parts you might need. Motorcycles unlimited can get parts also,check em out. Like what was said earlyer its metric prolly not an SAE bolt on it. Good luck with the build.

Buddy of mine has 2 Vespa's from the 60's anything he can't fix in his parking garage goes to some motorcycle shop off 59 south out side of the loop. I can't remember the name and I seem to recall them working on other Italian two wheeled vehicles...

If you don't have them yet get metric tools it is going to make your job a lot easier.
