Hi everyone! I'm a newbie here, so appreciate any feedback. I looking to buy my wife a 49Cc for her 60th birthday. Looking for a modern used Vespa and want to get a custom two tone paint job that reflects the old 70s style. Ideas please! I am thinking of either a pastel salmon colour or mint with white.

My vote for color combos.
Here is a thread in a similar vein 2 tone paint jobs?
Especially the first and third colors. Use the others as accents.

Well, you can change the appearance of anything, but I would suggest you get one with the base color already and then add in the different colored panels. You may also consider doing it with vinyl wrap for the panels, usually cheaper, can last for years and easy to change out, if wanted. By the way, their were no original two-toned Vespas. That was all custom stuff then from the owners to get their scoot to stand out. Now, it is used by SEA builders to peddle bodges to the uninformed.

This is my favorite custom 2-tone on a GTS. Also a good way to redo a scooter with a damaged cowl .
