Lots of board members have seen pics of my scoot already, but I wanted to get a few pics in the Gallery.

Notice the new Euro-style tail light. I think it works better with the stripe down the rear.

That is such a pretty paint job Kevin.....I think if I ever have mine repainted, I'm going with a Vintage Green and Pearl White combo.

I had considered a darker green color instead of the dark orange. I used a photo of the Alfie scoot to play with color combos. This is the one I did with green.

Sorry, but it looks like a German Police car!

I dig the green and white. Green and black is also good. I personally am a huge fan of the Porsche Zambezi Green that was used on the 914 back in the 1970s.

It's beautiful, Kevin.

Can I ask who did the custom paint work for you? Was it done locally?

It was done locally. I forget the name of the painter. Wellesley with Vespa of Washington hooked me up with them. If you are interested in getting more info, PM me and I'll send you his email address.

Vespa of Memphis will do this sort of work (they farm the work out), but I've never seen such a great selection of colors...your bike is really stunning Kevin.
