Broken Rusty Oldtimer Scooter - Restoration

פורסם בתאריך 7 מאי 2021
In this video I'm going to restore a very rusty and broken scooter from the 1970s.
I've bought this scooter almost two years ago at an online auction for $40. I really liked the look of it, especially the design of the aluminium casted wheels. I knew this one would be a very challenging project because of multible reasons. I knew I need to replace the tires and handles, but I had no idea back then how to make them. It took a lot of research in terms of resin and rubber casting and also the help of my friend @Mister Patina , which has organized the polyurethane rubber for me. It was pretty difficult to get the right hardness in the right color. There was also the rear fender missing, which required metal shaping to make a new one. I've never done that before, but after a successful test piece with aluminium I was optimistic to get it done and it worked out absolutely perfect. One more thing that scared me was the chrome plating of the handlebar. I knew I can't chrome plate myself, as I heard it's super toxic. Then the idea of nickel plating came to my mind, it has a slightly different color than chrome. It has kind of a yellowish goldish touch. After doing some test pieces, I knew this was the way to go. To get an overall uniform look and also rust protection I decided to polish and nickel plate all steel parts.
This project was the by far the most difficult one to restore. It required so many new techniques, that's why it took me 50 days in the workshop to complete. I really put my heart into this little scooter and in my opinion it turned out absolutely fantastic. The combination of the grey and blue paint together with all the shiny nickel plated parts and the new casted creme white tires and handles come together very nice. I'm very happy how it turned out.

I hope you like my work and the video.

  • Great f@ckin' cool ...!

    • this is one of the highest restorations we witnessed . the milling and nickel plating was magnificent , making new tyres and grips was pure genius . i liked your anvil and vise too.. most importantly it will give a child hours of fun and play. thank you for this wonderful presentation.

  • Nise 😊

  • Really enjoyed this one tonight thank you. Winding down after a stressful day is so much easier with a video like this.

  • Are you Vietnamese?

  • 28:50 - Most Satisfying Pop Sound!

  • Да уж. Просто у меня в голове не укладывается, откуда столько знаний, ну и там всего дальше по списку. Наверно с юного техника всё начиналось.

  • из дерьма делает лепешку

    • Мужик, вот ты заморочился) Для каких-то насадок на ручки целые формы из алюминия сделал)

  • so..good..

  • that mold for the handle is a work of art haha.

  • 3:15 ah, back when the button wasn't broken

  • pretty cool but why not find a bike tire of the correct width and diameter?

  • I love these videos best par is I make a new one 😂🙂😁

  • 🍀

  • La verdad mejor lo que estaba quedo. Una barbaridad que hasta los tornillos haga,o sea un genio. Genial de que algo tan deteriorado haya quedado mucho mejor que nuevo. Almirable forma de trabajo.

  • mano se duvida isso fica melhor do q compra na loja

  • Nice video, but handlebars were probably overkill :)

  • Hallo They Arbek😍🇸🇾 ➕englsh😍

  • I love your videos, they are very relaxing

  • 0:54

  • This video is the reason I subscribed to your channel

  • Tig is cleaner and easier with steel. But otherwise awesome job love your channel

  • Beautiiful job. Congratulations from Brazil.

    • Man, you took things to a new level with this one! Iam glad the tires worked out finally 😄 Thanks for inspiring us with your outstanding work! Hugs from Frankfurt!

  • I find this very satisfying

  • Amazing job! You're the man!

  • The most original parts as possible. Love it

  • OK can we talk about the POP when the handle was pulled out of the mold?

  • This is one of those videos where you just sit back and watch, amazed at the skill - and the understatement. For example, 'it looks worn, I make a new one.' And then he does! To perfection. That just makes me smile. Plus, this project reminds me of my own scooter many, (ahem, too many), years ago. Kudos and thanks.

  • Мужик, вот ты заморочился) Для каких-то насадок на ручки целые формы из алюминия сделал)

  • откуда найдёт такие старые вещи ?

  • ههههههههههه

    • This never seemed to end! Turned out amazing! So many parts, it’s crazy how talented you are!

  • มีคนไทยมั้ย

    • Your editing was as beautiful as the restoration itself! Spectacular! 👏

    • @Natthaya Rumgsawang :0

    • มี

  • my mechanics: *sees a sharp edge* my mechanics: and I took that personally

  • How do you nickel-plate the small screws and nuts?

  • Oh, OK, he's making a new rear fender. Cool. Damn, look at those tires, he's going to bu........ WTF HE'S MAKING THE TIRES? The hand grips, surely he's buyi.... NOPE HE'S MAKING THEM TOO. That brake.. OK, well that's got to be sourc..... AGAIN? Even the molds are pieces of art.

  • Her: "I've never done this before" Also her: 26:24

  • Nice little piece of music at 4:39 :)

  • Ok, 2 things... 1. he filed down casting marks inside and area you ain't never gonna see. 2. the dude made his own fucking tires.

  • Pawan

  • Você é uma máquina, muito bom🤧👌🏻

  • I come here to look at the end results

  • When you start smelting your own metal or growing rubber trees, it's time to quit.

  • somehow this satisfies me

  • sometimes ppl say that they can make things better than new, YOU are the only one that makes things better than new. Also, your hands and your tools are so clean and spotless, the organizational skills are to another level. What can I say , your work is mesmerizing.

  • Good job

  • 👀👀☘☘👍👍I feel great joy, satisfaction and gratitude, I am so grateful, I will continue to raise good images, I am interested and watching well, I sincerely wish you success,👍👍💦💦👌👌큰기쁨과 만족감과 고마움을 느끼게합니다,,너무감사합니다,,앞으로도 좋은 영상 만이올려주세요,,만은 관심을가지고 잘보고있습니다,,진심으로 당신의 성공을 기원합니다,🎖🎖🥇🥇😍😍

    • Кто то сказал , что можно бесконечно смотреть на огонь и воду, а я бесконечно могу смотреть как мастер из дерьма делает золото!

  • I have to admit I didn’t watch this when it came out as I thought it wouldn’t interest me but I WAS WRONG! oh my god!! The amount of work and detail you’ve put into this was phenomenal! The engineering put into the tooling to make the grips and the tyres was mind blowing! This has to be one of my top 3 ILaward videos of all time! Bravo Sir! Bravo! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  • Porque el titulo es español pero el video es ingles

  • 대단해요.

  • Puedes restaurar mi vida?

  • It's videos like this that ILaward needs to introduce an "Amazed" button instead of a "Like". Do I like it? Sure but my amazement level is at stratospheric heights!!!!!

  • Powder coat! You'll make more than enough back in views.

  • ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

  • Incredible

  • Good 😊

    • Да уж. Просто у меня в голове не укладывается, откуда столько знаний, ну и там всего дальше по списку. Наверно с юного техника всё начиналось.

  • 3:45 что это?

  • Quem pensou em bobeira no momento 26:35

    • Кто то сказал , что можно бесконечно смотреть на огонь и воду, а я бесконечно могу смотреть как мастер из дерьма делает золото!

  • Incredible work again! After looking many of your videos, i actually have a couple of questions. When you make a nut for instance, how do you get the correct diameter for it? Is your tool automatic or do you need to somehow adjust it manually? How does that nickel plating actually work? I understand that somehow the electricity causes the nickel to cover the part.

  • Sehr schön

    • Remember that machining technique that my mechanics doesn't know how to do? Me neither. Was definitely not expecting to see you making molds for new tires and handle bars!

  • mmm nice it looks better

  • simplemente el mejor restaurador de todos

  • You went through a lot of work to make this content. Great work and so much precision.

  • А вот шайбы Гровера бы не помешали.

  • Wow is king you bro

  • Soon the guy will be building a car at his house 😁

  • Have you ever wondered how long the things you restore keep looking new? I always think of like a fast forward in time and everything rusting away... keeps you humble you know

  • my respects !

  • Beautiful

    • Blows my mind how much attention to detail and patience you have. It’s one thing to work hard 😓 restoring but it’s another thing to film and edit as you do. I am an editor and cinematographer so I know all to well how much work you do setting up tripod, focus,aperture and just the sheer number of clips you process. Then you have to edit it! Amazing! Total legend, and a mans man with an artistic touch.

  • Wow 🤩

  • Top!

  • يمكن بس اني عربي 😂

  • How do you make the Nikkel bath? White Vinigar with salt? And how long put you the Nikkel anode in the vinigar before its ready?

  • mantapp sih setiap minggunya gue dikasih gajian sama *HBC69*

  • I am astounded that I have lived my life thus far without finding this channel - wowowow! I can tell you're a master of your craft

  • The "pop" noise when he pulled the handle out.. mmmmm

  • I really appreciate all the camera angles so satisfying to watch.😃

    • Да уж. Просто у меня в голове не укладывается, откуда столько знаний, ну и там всего дальше по списку. Наверно с юного техника всё начиналось.

  • if part of my body is broken, I'll take myself to this guy, not the doctor.

  • Top em amigo parabéns

  • 👍

  • Золотые руки!
