Restorer recommendations?

Can any members recommend a shop to restore a vintage 500? My Ď70 runs and is in pretty good shape but I want to restore it to ensure its longevity. My original plan was to ship it to/from Italy but shipping costs have gone crazy in the last year. Will still do it if I canít find a US-based shop to restore it. Thanks,

Cheest is very active on here and from your side of "the Pond". Maybe he might be able to help?

Re: Restorer recommendations?

Where about in the States are you? Ther is bound to be a Forum member reasonably near to you who can help with local knowledge. There must still be a number of 1st generation Italian run body-shops over there.

I am in Texas, and appreciate any help from my cousins in Blighty.
