If the rottenness of the decades has spread to your Vespa and the running board is infested, our repair floor panels or frame struts are the easiest way to save a frame that was previously scrapped. But even in the event of a fall, a new running board is worth considering. Especially since you then renovated the frame from the ground up and prepared it for the coming decades.

Before the Vespa repair floor pan is used, you should get a precise overview of the damage. The best way to do this is to blast the scooter. One of the crossbars is suitable as a cutting point for removing the old sheet metal, as the base sheet is reinforced here. Then drill out the welding points and remove the old running board. It is best to blast the spar and seal it with the appropriate means. The repair floor panel can then be adjusted and finally welded in. A job for the relevant experience or appropriate outsourcing partner are required!

This makes the step plate repair a fairly straightforward task.

The annoying and expensive production of the sheet metal part is no longer necessary and the repair floor panels can be welded in after comparatively little preparatory work.

Fortunately, there are reproductions from Italy. These are pressed and only require minimal adjustment work before painting. If any.
