Definitely download a couple full pictures off the site before you think anything of it. Before I looked at the full size pics, I was thinking, "OK, so what it's blue with a black leather seat, so what?

Couple of the local PETA folks are scooter riders... one or two of 'em even rock Vespa's. I wanna borrow that cow skin wrapped GTV and roll into their next juice party.

Umm.... why?

That has got to be one of the strangest scooters I've seen. Not the strangest, but it's pretty high up in the ranks.

Wow ... that blue one is pretty ugly but I kinda like the two tone, tan and beige Vespa. You really have to admire the work that went into them. However, I can't imagine what they would look like in a couple of years out in the weather. Seems a pretty big waste of time.

Maybe some collector who doesn't plan to use them will buy them and stick them in a display somewhere.

Looks way better than furring your scoot.

I like it.

But it will crack under the sun parking outdoors, yeah. It'll be better just as a windows display rather then a commuter.

Can see a use if you just happened to own a muralled up scooter like some of the ones we get over here.

In fact I remember a few of the top custom jobs in the late 80s used to have leather legshield covers to protect their paint jobs.

But the entire scooter?? Unless it is an advertising gimic/promo tool, as a few have pointed out the workmanship is good, and I did see a website address or similair on part of the PX one.

The blue vespa, for what I read was done by the owner (that happens to be a leather man) and I suppose either he owns the shop or the boss arrange to have the pic on the site.
There were other pic where you could see he was working from his home garage (more closet)...
