This thread is for discussion and pics of scooters that are used off road or on unimproved roads. Vespas are certainly no strangers to unpaved travel, but sometimes they've been modified to handle it better, either by not getting stuck or by not breaking down from the continued abuse.
I've ridden mostly stock Vespas offroad quite a lot and now I want to build something that can maybe do it just a little better than stock - reinforced floorboard, frame to column brace, no muffler underneath, extended rear shock and a few other ideas that have occurred to me when I had problems riding in bad places.
I'll be taking and posting pics of what I've come up with so far. I'm hoping that others will post their experiences and ideas, as well as asking anything they like on the subject.
There seems to be some interest and riding an old Vespa in the dirt is too much FUN, especially when you run into random civilians in remote places!
Here's the dirt riding thread that got me scheming:[url] Dirt bike Vespas I'll just continue the build part here.
