Very cool! In the US this is called a wide-body or handlebar Vespa. Should it have a headlight on the front fender? Also, are the wheels and motor custom? The wheels look like Kart wheels. What are your plans?

I'm a Vespa/Lambretta fan as well. Here is some work I've done on Vespa in the past couple of years:

I just realized that the scooter is in miniature. Wow! I thought it was a restoration.

Very nice reverse curve below the seat in front of the rear wheel. Did you use an English wheel or....?

Very impressive! I am a bit of a scooter fan I had a 1959 LI series one Lambretta many years ago, in fact it was my only transport most of the time I was at college.

I try differend work methods , englisch wheel is one the tools.
I'm still learning, I'm in november 2013 started with metal shaping and still have no fixed working method.
I have a real Vespa used to determine the dimensions.

That's really good work making a smaller scale version of the Vespa.

I like it.

Hi Tom. Brilliant job, err... and you only started a year ago. Looks more like you were born with a hammer in one hand and a dolly in the other! Just a shame it's not a Lambretta I had a TV175 at one point as my first legal ride. And hair and a waistline and libido....
