Vespa Motorised Scooter was originally manufactured in 1946 in Italy and believe it or not still is! But the classic ones are the ones that their fans modify the most. So without further ado I bring for you… The World’s Top 10 Best Modified Vespa Scooters.
Vespa 150 TAP: Commonly said to be from the Indian army the Vespa 150 T.A.P. was actually used by the French army and was designed to be parachuted into action and was fitted with a 75mm recoilless cannon! And the best bit? This is the ORIGINAL Vespa it all started from this!
Vespa Quattro Posti: Why should you enjoy the pleasure of riding that Vespa on your own when you could ride this fully road legal 4 seater version that was self modified by a fan of the original scooters meaning, not just fun for you but fun for the whole family!
Vespa Daniela: Carlos Alberto loved his Vespa but when it broke down and could no longer be repaired he used his master wood-crafting skills to make the “Vespa Daniela” and while the original engine is all there the entire frame is made from wood! No screws, no metal, just 100% wood!
Vespa Natural: Believe it or not that is real grass growing over that Vespa and it is also completely road legal! Seen at a Vespa gathering in Germany not a lot is known about this amazing machine other than the fact that the fan won best Vespa modification 1995.
Vespa Super Sport 180: One for us Manga fans this rather impressive Vespa Sport is inspired by 2000 anime FLCL from Gainax. While it might not look much to a non fan of the series this is in fact an EXACT replica of it and it is also 100% street legal! Nerdy and super cool all in one Scooter.
Vespa 200 Rally: Seen at a Vespa show in Brighton back in 2002 is this amazing Spiderman custom painted 200 Rally Vespa, and what an incredible paint job it is.
Vespa 946: Created by Jap Dyer this rather impressive custom-built Vespa and it’s amazing VW camper sidecar was created for his 11-year-old son Kaine to sit in while they drive around the country and officially makes him not only a cool Vespa owner but also a great dad.
1959 VNA Vespa: This incredible scooter is called “GO BATS” and has won just about every award going, from Best Of Show – Mile High Mayhem 2003 to Best Custom – Mile High Mayhem 2005 and to be fair to it’s designer.
Vespa S 150: Made by some amazingly skilled nerd called “Morgan” this amazing scooter images when absolutely viral only last year!, (2012) and what a mind-blowing mod on a basic Vespa it is. I always find it funny when someone does a relatively simple paint job on something and turns it is something that is not only amazing to look at but also highly desirable.
Vespa PX200E: Now you are probably wondering why I rated this over the incredible R2-D2 one. Well the truth is that this Iron man inspired Vespa! Sure the lights and paint job are not original but the scooter underneath them is!
