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.
I’m seeing this style more and more on the custom motorcycle scene lately. Mostly it’s been on really cool hand-painted leather riding jackets, but occasionally I’ll find it on a motorcycle gas tank. Here we have this distinctive style working really well on a vintage Lambretta. What do you guys thing? Dig it?
