The World’s Top 10 Best Modified Vespa Scooters

The World’s Top 10 Best Modified Vespa Scooters.
The World’s Top 10 Best Modified Vespa Scooters.
The Vespa motorised scooter has come a long way since it days of the Mod gang and general Quadrophenia inspired shenanigans. It 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 you…
As you can see in the comments below it seems that not all of these are in fact Vespas but are other makes of Scooters. I will leave them in this list that is more of a top 10 modified scooters rather than the “Vespa” brand. Sadly I am no scooter expert but I do promise to do much better with my facts in the future.

10 – Back to basics < Vespa 150 TAP > (source)
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!

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!

8 – The perfect ride for a woodworm! < Vespa Daniela > (source)
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!

3 – Manga Style < Vespa Super Sport 180 > (source)
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.

2 – Recycled Robots?!? < Vespa S 150 > (source)
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. Let the copy cat Vespa’s commence!

1 - Tony Starks new weapon: The nerd magnet! < Vespa PX200E > (source)
Now you are probably wondering why I rated this over the incredible R2-D2 one. Well the truth is that this Ironman inspired Vespa is in fact a brand new 2011 Vespa model! Sure the lights and paint job are not original but the scooter underneath them is! So I gave this the number 1 because all you would need to replicate it is a new Vespa, some LEDS and some paint!
