In this video I'm going to restore a very rusty and broken scooter from the 1970s.
I've bought this scooter almost two years ago at an online auction for $40. I really liked the look of it, especially the design of the aluminium casted wheels. I knew this one would be a very challenging project because of multible reasons. I knew I need to replace the tires and handles, but I had no idea back then how to make them. It took a lot of research in terms of resin and rubber casting and also the help of my friend @Mister Patina , which has organized the polyurethane rubber for me. It was pretty difficult to get the right hardness in the right color. There was also the rear fender missing, which required metal shaping to make a new one. I've never done that before, but after a successful test piece with aluminium I was optimistic to get it done and it worked out absolutely perfect. One more thing that scared me was the chrome plating of the handlebar. I knew I can't chrome plate myself, as I heard it's super toxic. Then the idea of nickel plating came to my mind, it has a slightly different color than chrome. It has kind of a yellowish goldish touch. After doing some test pieces, I knew this was the way to go. To get an overall uniform look and also rust protection I decided to polish and nickel plate all steel parts.
This project was the by far the most difficult one to restore. It required so many new techniques, that's why it took me 50 days in the workshop to complete. I really put my heart into this little scooter and in my opinion it turned out absolutely fantastic. The combination of the grey and blue paint together with all the shiny nickel plated parts and the new casted creme white tires and handles come together very nice. I'm very happy how it turned out.

I hope you like my work and the video.

    I have been watching your work recently, and the thing that gets me the most, is you will know exactly how to put it back together, and what piece (and how it looks and operates) needs to be recreated. If it's planning and drawings off screen is fine, I couldn't do that if I were paid to try. It's crazy to watch, I love it!
