The 2019 SIP catalogue for Vespa Wideframe models is now available.
Wideframe tuningis certainly becoming more and more popular. Most of the time, the old ladies with the charismatic tubular handlebars slumber in the garage as collector's items or are only used for a short ride. There is too little confidence in the old engines, especially for longer rides. Moreover, with 2-3 hp engine power, they are simply underpowered for today's road traffic. To remedy this, a small scene of resourceful tinkerers and hobbyists has sprung up around the "Faro Basso" in recent years. The overflow and timing of the original cylinders have been optimised, pistons have been replaced, various types of carburettors have been installed, etc.
An extremely high-quality polished connecting rod is installed in the "SIP Performance" shafts. Polishing refines the surface. This means that it is compressed and has a more stable structure, which makes the connecting rod more resistant. In addition, the polished surface ensures less turbulence. The polished connecting rods are even more weight-optimised. Their lateral contour is more streamlined and they have been reworked in the area of the lower bearing for even better cooling of the connecting rod bearing.
Sheet metal parts from CARLUCCI, Made in Italy
"Sandro Carlucci is a Vespa mechanic with heart and soul and specialised in the production of sheet metal parts for the Vespa many years ago. His floor panels, beading, etc.... are really made 1:1 and are in a class of their own better than all the Asian goods. Over the years, when I have needed a replacement sheet metal for one of my old vehicles, it has always been one of his. From my point of view, the parts are without competition in terms of quality."
