Title: A new project!
Post by: Dave Gee on 03 December, 2014, 11:38:50 AM
Retirement was looming and although there were plenty of other projects (of a far less attractive variety) such as building the barn doors etc, this little beauty arrived! However, I know nothing about Aprilias, and as you will see from the pictures, a few parts are missing. I have the engine and gear box but if anyone has any other Aprilia parts surplus to requirements, plus any technical information - handbook, parts book, etc, I would be very interested. It will probably be a year before I start work on it as the other projects have just got to get finished. However, it does mean I have a chance to really plan the restoration and acquire the appropriate bits.

The overall state of the structure is very good, especially the boot floor. Bill has already made two front floor pans for me as he was producing some for someone else.

Will come back when I have further news on her progress.

Pictures are attached below.

Best wishes

For information there is a lot in this section of the forum. Also I have a small website with some Aprilia publications that might help:

Do you know what year the car is? There were numerous changes over the period of production so if you have the chassis or construction numbers we can work it out.

Never realised before how close the tyres sit to the sliding pillars.
