Really nice set of shots here taken by Ilya. I'm guessing these were shot in Israel as Ilya currently resides in the Israeli town of Kiryat Ono. View full set of Ilya's shots here
I'm a big fan of un-restored vespas like this as those following this blog will know. I'd leave the paint as is & just get the scoot mechanically sound.
As well as being a handy photographer, Ilya runs this great group on the photo-sharing site, Flickr called Analog VW Aircooled which as it says is for analogue/film shots of classic aircooled VWs, check it out.
