this beautiful vespa is not your average hipster runaround, instead its a highly tuned and modified streetracer. i've invested a lot of time on this project and in return it has taught me a deeper understanding and love for these gorgeous machines.

There are too many modifications to mention, so here is a very brief list:

michelin s1 tires
aluminium racing rims (tubeless)
bitubo suspension
carbon fibre fender
80's px horncast
ancilotti racing seat
sip exhaust
carb upjet and airfilter modification
rear wide tire conversion (130/70)
rear disc brake
rear cut-down
etc...

all work was done by me and i am very attached to this motorcycle. i drive it to work everyday and i find it difficult to explain the freedom i experience on my vespa. hong kong is a beautiful city and exploring it on two wheels really puts things into a different perspective. this bike started out as an old red vespa px200 and has been transformed into a fast, badass streetracer.
