Check this thing out! This used to be a 79 vespa grande! We added a kawasaki gas tank (rust free on the inside, found in a scrapheap), a buddy seat and "bitch stick" (both found in a scrapheap as well), various bits of bent up and rusty expanded metal grating (bought brand new at a hardware store), ammo box storage units (built 'em myself), and a maltese cross taillight (from ebay). We tried to do a ramp variator mod to it, but it gets up to about 30mph and then the rollers get stuck and it goes into hyper top range, almost like shifting into overdrive. It'll do 35 downhill. Oh, we also drilled out the exhaust to make it sound mean.

Don't be offended by the destructive construction of this ped, it was pretty much in this condition when we got it, just not as accessorized.
