That makes me smile. You're brave and your scooter is happy. Great job.
You might consider also posting this in the "Scooter Gallery" section.

Thanks Guys, no phone booth yet. They sell red tint for turn signals at automotive stores. Just sprayed them with two light coats.

WOW! The colour scheme really POPs. Love the Superman tribute livery. Do you have to ride it with your underpants over your jeans? Gass silver achine GTS 250

At first I didn't like it, but then it grew on me. When I saw the rear end it all clicked into place. Great fun!

I was scared at first when I saw this, but then I realized it was my heart jumping for joy!! great job on the paint scheme. The tinting of lights is fairly simple and quite. there are quick tutorials on YouTube.

jameszbonds,

Very distinctive for sure! Not my style but looks like much attention to small details, right down to the valve stems and caps, some would not go to that extra step.

I know you answered one question on the signal lamp lenses, but do you have a brand name? I have need to cover up a clear window in a tail light on a sidecar tail lamp lens.

Very cool!

2 questions. How do you find getting her up on the centerstand without the rear bar?, and where did you get the mirrors?

Thanks!

So artistic - I see another detail each time I look at the photos. Don't know where you got the idea but the scooter is such such a creative piece of work - not to mention a tad bit of OCD. Lol

Redone GTS 300 Super
Cant believe its been over 5 years since I posted. I just wanted to post some updated pics of my GTS 300 Updated all the lighting, Redid Wheels, Seat, and a bunch of other parts. I have to say the bike has been good to me over the years.

Before the change
This is actually an updated pic right before I did the change to new colors. Original pics above were missing headlight and a couple of other matching parts.

Such a pity we never saw you in your Superman outfit on your Superman scooter.

I have a blue GTS, and have recently been blacking out the chrome, so I am very interested to see what the end result could be. The black taillight and indicators really make it. Guess I am going to spend lot more money!

But you need to do something about that exhaust. And maybe the transmission cover.

Mike

Edit. Have just saved several pics of your scooter to my Vespa Pictures folder for future reference.

Exhaust
You're right about the exhaust. the only one I found that was all black was a Remus that cost $749 . Not ready for that yet. Still contemplating getting a new GTS 300 next year.
