favorites, your inspirations, or just those that become your wallpaper
these have been saved on my computer for a while.

Not a scooter, but definitely inspiring. I'd like to fashion a Vespa after this one.

Yep... there is something about drop bars on a triumph that just hit all the right buttons.

This is Parakesit's from Indonesia, he based it on Vader's and it's lovely

One of the few PX's I like

Having a previous influence with riding and tuning 2 stroke dirt bikes, I see the vintage Vespa's platform having unlimited potential with regards to tuning options. Considering the uptick in larger displacement kits and the selection of braking, suspension, wheel and tire offerings, and tuner's like Scooter & Service and MRP's influence, the possibilities of reliable tuning has reached a new plateau which was previously unimaginable, and Malossi, Pinasco, Polini, Quattrini and BSG to name a few have gotten into a tuner's war, offering big reliable power, along with the resurgence of pipe design. When building my Stella, a reliable fast bike in a vintage platform was my desire. Sadly, since doing so, the offerings have gone nuts, and my bike is suddenly antiquated. Taking a stock bike from 9 hp to an approximated 37 hp and upgrading the suspension and braking transformed the Stella from an urban putter to a fast tourer. Imagine adding another 20 hp, wow? I've never had the opportunity to throw a leg over a T5, but from what I've read and been told, this is the bike currently on my radar. I had the opportunity to purchase one several years ago, but as the deal was being finalized, the seller refused to provide a Bill of Sale or Title. When I pressed for chassis and motor serial #s, the seller went missing. These bikes are scarce in the states and those who posses one seem reluctant to part with them, which leads me to believe I need one. I understand certain parts are scarce and considering the short life of production, it's a scantly supported bike. They have a unique design with regards to the frame and motor, which makes it a weird/queer bike. Sign me up! In a nut shell, I lean more towards a restomod bike, or one exhibiting the potential the bike has.

Came across a motor Vader had been working on last week.
LML cases - older ones.
Ports being opened - one broke through sidewall but not terminal.
Damn things were spotless.
Looked up some of his posts to see the bikes.
Guy had taste.

Below: it had to be...

Also love me a good Sportster bobber with low handlebar, forward pegs, big fat front tire and non existent rear fender. This ones almost got it all.
