My current project- The New Scooter

I got this after someone made me an offer on my motorcycle I couldn’t refuse that included this scooter in the trade. It was plain white and totally stock when I got it to weeks ago and immediately started making modifications. I wanted a custom cargo box that wasn’t the Vespa brand plastic bubble, and was given an immaculate condition vintage suitcase that I decided to mount to a chrome rack.

The case was nice an sturdy, complete with leather corners and vintage travel stickers, and Mod Podged them and hit it with about 10 coats of lacquer.

Next, I wanted to add some color, and thought the colors of the Sicilian flag would be appropriate given my ancestry and the scooter’s heritage. I did a mock up and bought some striping decals spent the morning yesterday making it happen. I think the final result (for now) is pretty righteous; I’ve got a lot left I want to do, but I’m digging it so far.
