Here at ScooterFile, we’re big fans of custom scooters and especially the custom Ruckus scene. We’ve featured a couple of these bikes in the past, and now they’re showing up more and more. This latest example, The LV Project, is from builder James Wong and it’s all over the web today.
The custom scooter scene is really starting to take off around the world. From west coast zoomer-style Honda Ruckus customs, to the perennial slammed maxi-scooters of Tokyo, we’re starting to see more and more custom Honda Cubs and SYM Symbas. Frankly, we couldn’t be happier about it. It’s a great platform with lots of potential.
Our favorite vintage scooter blog, 2StrokeBuzz, just shared a link to a treasure trove of vintage and custom scooter photos from the annual Landsberg Scooter Customshow. Apparently the winners of this year’s competition have been announced.
Chopped Vespas are not in and of themselves anything we haven’t seen before, but this creation from Indonesian builders Kopi Kustom is the third in a series of outrageous, fully committed Vespa choppers. What instantly separates these creations is that level of commitment.
Built by scooter tuning and fabrication company Composimo, the Cafe Risque is something that if you described it to me, I wouldn’t believe it was possible. How do you put cafe racer style into a 50cc scooter and have it look this great?
Greek sculptor Cris Cofitis is no stranger to elaborate, custom-built two wheelers. He’s competed at the AMD Championship custom bike build-off at Sturgis. Yet for his latest project, Cris chose a vintage Vespa as the canvas for what is simply a staggering piece of rolling sculpture. With elements of dieselpunk, retro-futurism and profound artistic vision, this bike, dubbed “The Guardian” may just take the prize as the most incredible custom scooter I’ve ever seen.
