@Senecio Just saw your post again - interested to know how it’s going.
@eracode. Funny you should ask. I dropped into this thread yesterday and though I should post an update.
Progress has been slow. Primarily due to high demand for the conversion kits as a result of many European cities banning 2-stroke scooters due to emissions, and COVID shipping lead times. The bulk of the kit only arrived the week before Christmas, I'm still waiting on the battery and charger as they were sent by sea freight.
This is how it currently stands.
I have installed the swing arm, hub motor assembly using all of the original mounting hardware and rear shock. A little persuasion was required as I'm not sure factory tolerances in Italy in the 60's was that high meaning quite a bit of variation from scooter to scooter. And while my scoot looks to be quite original, I'm sure its had some panel work in its 56 year history.
The control box is also installed behind that engine cover. The control box houses the motor controller and e-throttle as well as the DC-DC converter to step down the 64V battery voltage to 12V to run the lights and horn etc...
The next jobs are to route the wiring loom through the frame, its about as simple as wiring looms can get, and to rebuild the head-set / steering assembly. My local scooter shop as ordered some parts that are due in this weekend so I can freshen up the front end (upper and lower steering bearings, new speedo cable and front brake cable). Once that is all done it will be all ready to go, just waiting on the battery to power it.
In good news this week, when I got the scooter last year I could not find the original speedo in the various boxes of bits that came with it. While rummaging around yesterday I found it, and while sourcing a replacement wouldn't have been to difficult or costly I think having the original just sets off the resto-mod them well.
