I was playing around with the look of my Vespa, and thought that I cannot be the only one that has done this (or can I...) It would be fun to see what people have been sketching their scooters to look like. So if you have any concepts lying around, please post it here for us to enjoy!

I begin with this mockup of my GTS as a retro-rally-looker:

I don't have PhotoChop, so I just used MS Paint.
I'm doing a minor paint job to my GTS. So far, I'm only doing the horn cover, but I'm thinking about going over the top edge of the rear cowl.

Like your Rally idea, BTW.

I've used photoshop and illustrator a bit, but I'm still not sure how people do such slick color scheme changes in it. I'd really love to know how.

Maybe a tutorial is in order?

Collin, with rims like that, you'd definitely need an alarm!

Tasty, bro. The white walls, chrome weels, racing stripes—all good by me. Hell, that "decor/styling" would look great with most colors. British racing green comes to mind.

Well done.

When I first got my ET4, I did some concepts in Photoshop to run the ideas by friends. The first 3 were my concepts and the 4th photo shows the finished product.









That Vespa was stolen and totalled. Our Denver Vespa dealership bought the totalled bike from the insurance company and had it painted. It now looks like this.



This scooter has had quite a life!

Love that SS180. Those trapezoidal headlights rock my world.

Nukie .... I know the GTS is at the painter now. How much longer till you get it back. I for one can't wait to see what you came up with this time! Guess we can't twist your arm to show us your newest concept here??

lomunchi,

It's not embarrasing that it's snowing and 40 degrees colder. That's just spring in Denver. 80 degrees on Sunday and down to 29 degrees last night.

Tikka,

This time for the paint job there was no concept done. So I don't have anything to show for a sneak preview. But I can tell you the airbrush artist that did the green and purple paint job on that last picture is the same guy working on the GTS250. I am giving him total creative freedom to go crazy on this one. It's going to be all about nuclear explosions, radiation and IT WILL GLOW IN THE DARK. We'll just have to let all our minds wonder at what he is going to come up with. Trust me, it's killing me to wait and find out. He's started on the prep work so it' going to be a week or two at least. Hang tight!

I'm looking forward to the new Nukie scoot but it needs the rider in the picture to complete it.

Need Help Photoshopping up my next scoot.
I want the complete chrome kit but I want it powdercoated black. Also I want the rims and rear foot rests powder coated black. I'm wanting a matching trunk and a smoked flyscreen. I'm also wanting a 2 tone seat like RamRezz but I want yellow and black. The color of the scooter and trunk is to be Lamborghini Yellow. If you will photoshop up this as described I will pay you with over 100 Vespa Vinyl stickers.

None f the photos below are mine, I borrowed them from other posts.
