My second custom project. First is in my sig

My friend asked me to built one custom Vespa. In appereance, ofcourse, engine mods I leave to him. Base is Bajaj Super 150 which is pretty similar to Vespa Sprint, that I used for this photoshop mod. Here are few pictures how it should look like.



Front fender is a little too much on this first image, so I will try to build something like this:


And, so I did. Front mudguard now looks like this:


After a month or so, work continues ...

First i did right mudguard






then I did her tailpart:




After that i flattened that hump under the seat, so she isn't hunchback any more:





And finally I did left mudguard and put wheels on just to see how she looks on wheels:









So far, I'm pleased

I really like this, simple for the engineering that is going into it. Not my style personally, but I can appreciate the effort and all the work that's going into it.

Can't wait to see it finished.

Great follow on to the first project you posted. Love what you see in your head AND especially that you then get in there and do it!

Thing is, unless you're knowledgeable about scooters, your stuff looks like it could have come out of the factory, special edition or something...

I think this one will certainly push that envelope, can't wait for more...


kickstart = ugh!


How about maybe some kinda subtle 'curly' kickstart lever that comes out that nice little notch you got goin' on there?

ha ha, I do believe your metal skills surpass your pshop skills

Yep, that is my intention. That notch on bottom right is intended for kickstart to emerge from there. Just don't have an idea about it yet.
I used my photoshop skills on front fender on that photo. Didn't have time to do the same trick on ass. And that kickstarter looks like someone put Sprint kickstart lever on PX engine

Glad you like it

What's inside the scoop Beer?
Or it kind of looks like you can see all the way through, but I don't think so.. right?

Of course that you can see through. It's purpose is to deliver air to rotor of vespa cooling fan

Oh shit... not like that.. It looked like you could see out the back of the scoop.. like OUT THE BACK! not into the motor (it's just the picture kind of fooled me).. I get it, I get it!... it's great.. but did you put some braces or what are the horizontal lines inside the scoop? or am I seeing things again?
