Today I've gotten the re-nickled bits and pieces back :) Once the frame's back they'll be re-fitted.

The free time I had during the winter because of the bad weather is over :( Now it's work, work, work....
Today though, I had time to put back the steering column together. After a few hours it was done, with the shiny spring mounted :) But in the process I made so much scratches on the paint that I decided to take it apart again to repaint it :(

The engine is complety revised and put back together ! Next week I'll have the frame back of the Vespa Douglas from the paintjob :) Hope to get her ready for our M&G of the scooterclub!

Today worked on the axis of the frontwheel and got the new bearings for it. Problem is that I can't get the old bearing off! Put it in the vice...nothing :( Only thing I achieved is that the outer ring exploded ad left me with the inner ring stuck on the axis...

It's evening, and I finally got the ring off!!! :) I used all kind of methods, even welded a bolt on the ring to prevent it turning in the vice while trying to get it off...nothing So I ended up using the grinding wheel, and the b*** is gone now! The axis is refitted in the steering column!
