Like a late 50s Cadillac tail fin. Razz emoticon . But I agree, it kinda goes well with the scoot.

Agreed. It's original, at least.

Does this find itself in bodge territory?

Nothing obvious to me on this picture. Only the horn has been replaced, maybe a noodle model ?

Heavy skim coat (look at the glovebox door) always makes me nervous. Interestingly, the mudguard looks like it was resprayed from yellow.

My guess is that it was a bodge, someone tried to save it, but didn't know enough about Vespas to do it right and instead re-bodged it (Ameri-bodge), so what it actually is at this point is anyone's guess.

The trim at the bottom of the horn cast is suspect as well.

Any time I see a spare tire cover, I call it a bodge.
