Gorgeous Vespa GL Street Rod

Scooter and Service of Hamburg, Germany (S+S), have got themselves a bit of a reputation for producing some seriously trick street Vespas – we’ve featured a few here over the last year, like this piece of scooter porn, the scooter it was being fitted to here, and this tidy Vespa Cosa too. Well here is another one…

Beginning life as a Vespa GL, this humble scooter has been given the full S+S treatment, which means the old 150 engine was dumped in favour of a tweaked PX200 motor, complete with Malossi kit, 60mm crank, Keihin carb and their own Newline expansion pipe exhaust.

Ar first glance the bodywork doesn’t look much different, but there are trick parts abound from the S+S Cosa Superlow front end, 4-pot hydraulic disc brake with Magura master cylinder and Malossi Whoop disc, with suspension care of Stage 6 and BGM.

Finishing touches include the race seat with fuel filler in the rear, quick-action throttle, the multifunction Motoscope Pro digital instrument unit, and gorgeous paint with contrasting black finishes.

Another rolling work of art from Germany it seems, about which you can learn more here.
