Wooden Vespa

 Carlos Alberto, Portuguese craftsman made by hand this inspiring wooden Vespa. Classic Vespa is one of the most gorgeous designs in history, and this is a really worthy remake. The small scooter is based on an original Vespa which had fallen into complete disorder, but using long-tested woodcraft techniques a curving new body was made for the runabout. The main vertebrae of the bike is fashioned from steam bent and plastic-coated veneers upon which very well carved body work hangs. Seat and package tray, are also made from wood.
