Golden Primavera shown on the EICMA 2014

This 1964 Vespa Primavera 125 has an appearance not unlike the typical design of the scooter from Italy where its entire body whitewashed with gold. The Vespa Polini 23-Carat Gold appeared on the EICMA 2014 show in Milan sometime ago.

And the 23-carat of gold be the most expensive component that mounted on this classic Vespa Primavera 125. The entire gold layer that covering the whole scooter's body, start of the front fender, body, handlebars, engine cover, to the rear requires 500 sheets of gold.

Polini is a home modification who designated to work on the project and confessed that they have to be extra careful when going to put the gold on the scooter's body. This is because each sheet of gold was easily broken.

The other part that was not covered with gold remade by Polini. For examples, its seat remade with black contoured orange peel, and re-coated wheels with chrome. The engine parts also refreshed, use the racing clutch with two springs and 27-69 primary gear.
Some components are also pinned on the Polini's Golden Vespa such as the advance crankshaft, 24 mm Polini carburetor, with a CDI ignition system, 12 Volt headlights, and a new exhaust specially made for the Vespa Polini 23-Carat Gold. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BIKES DOCTOR]
