Yep.


No old Vespa's ever had multicolor paint schemes. Can't speak for the modern ones, they're all ugly to me so I pay no attention.

micbergsma - wondered when I read this if it was possible that you were gaslighting the crowd.

If you had chosen a picture to post - you couldn't have checked more boxes.
If I listed the over reaction/over the top concerns about a bodge this crowd is prone to - it would actually fall well short of the vehicle you posted.

I mean - Its a museum quality QUINTESSENTIAL bodge.
We are talking old school- like-from-the-early2000's-classic-members-of-this-community-that-only-found-out-what-a-bodge-is-yesterday, bodge. There is likely less metal than bondo bodge. Nails where the most crucial cotter pins should go bodge. Fork made of two pieces soldered together bodge. Motor bearings held in with cigarets and sinew (look it up) bodge.

If I had a 5 year old and they drew a picture of a bodge - it would be the one you posted.

Having said that - kinda nice lookin.
The bodge conundrum that animates.
🙂

Steer clear - would be better to just buy a scoot and pay someone to strip it and paint it two tone if you are attracted.

Yes, likely a high number of Coca-Cola cans used to fill holes under that paint 😂
