Classic Vespa restoration in just 3 minutes!

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-19-31-10Okay, so it’s actually three minutes and 10 seconds, but that wouldn’t have worked as a title!
In fact, if we’re being completely honest it takes considerably longer than that, but that’s the joy of modern technology – you can speed things up a little if you like.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-19-31-38What we have here is a very neat little film made by one Barnaby Newton that depicts three to four months’ worth of hard work undertaken by the London Scooter Bodyshop and Retrospective Scooters in restoring a 1964 Vespa VNB 125 back to its former glory.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-19-33-04The clever bit, however, is that Newton has shot and edited his film in such a way that it is enthralling from beginning to end, without lingering on any process beyond giving the viewer a taste of what the job involves. screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-19-35-39A perfect promotional film that’s entertaining too. Enjoy…
