Does anyone own a Vespa that had it custom painted with flames or something out of the ordinary? If so, please share! I want to get my 2022 Primavera 150 professionally re-done with some flames or something more interesting than my vintage green. I love the color, but I want something more crazy, if you know what I mean, haha. If you have any photos, please share. Thanks.

Hahaha, these look great; the first photo is what I'm looking for. I hope the cost to get something like this done by professionals won't be too steep. Thanks!

I like using metal flake and kandy paints. I'm in the process of painting my P200E in greens with some metal flake on the cowls and mudguard. Here's a pic of my chopper tank with a serape and scale theme. There are many different sizes of flake too. Gives it a totally different dimension.

I'm In Telluride. If you have ever heard of it, about 6 hours southwest of Denver, I have thought of wraps as they are most likely cheaper than getting it completely re-done. I am not sure if I want to re-paint or wrap. I am still deciding.

Thank you, yes I did! I didn't expect this but people always want to touch it, like it has texture or something. 😁

Here's the original thread for the Atomic Scooter paint job (the green flames one above): Atomic Scooter Unveiled! NEW Pics of Scooter glowing!

What isn't apparent from the photo is that the green bits were glow-in-the-dark paint.

Unfortunately, the original inline images are now gone, 18 years later. Which is why everyone should upload their photos to MV.

The green radioactive flames look fantastic! But I feel like if I were to bring my scooter to a body shop and ask for this, they would give me a $3000 quote or something. That's why I'm thinking about wrapping mine, as it will be cheaper, but at the same time, a custom paint job would probably last forever. I get back from vacation in about a week, so when I get home, I'll call around and Inquire about a price.
