Gas prices are climbing every year and fuel economy is all the rage now. While a lot of people are moving to hybrids vehicles, many are taking their chances on two-wheeled death machines. If you’re planning on riding a scooter such as a Vespa, why not make it look bitchin’ cool like fifth grade teacher and Star Wars fanatic, Morgan did. Morgan took her white Vespa and customized it into R2-D2 Scooter!
I am a fifth grade teacher/SW nerd, and I recently converted my Vespa that I ride into work every day to look like the one and only R2. This was done with adhesive vinyl, some meticulous cutting and a 12-pack of beer. It gets a lot of looks and thumbs up, and often times while I am sitting at a stop light someone crossing the street will pause to take notice. The rear trunk is a real vintage piece and I removed the original faded travel stickers and replaced them with various retro style Star Wars art and posters that I found on the internet.
It’s pretty amazing what a twelve pack of beer and steady hands can accomplish (I doubt the beer helped with the steady hands though…). Good well done, Morgan. You deserve more beers!
