Vespa 50 Special-e: a classic Vespa that is now an electric scooter

Garage Italia is an Italian motorcycle and classic car customization workshop whose latest work is the electric conversion of a classic Vespa. The firm has named it Vespa 50 Special-eand although it is a model made almost by hand, the firm is already beginning to accept orders.

As its name indicates, this electric retomod is based on a Vespa 50 Special, and except for some rims with a somewhat bulkier hub in conventional models, there is nothing that is in charge of advancing that it is now an electric scooter. .

As in any restoration, the aesthetic renewal has been carried out by renovating and cleaning up the smallest detail, so much so that it could even go through a new model. The unit chosen to present the model by Garage Italia is finished in the same shade of pastel green paint that, among others, sported the Sportellinio Piccolo special series that was sold between the 60s and 70s. The paint contrasts with the white leather chosen for both seats like fists. The brake levers and rear rack have also been painted white.
