Eddie Wuz 'Ere : The Grimstead Special
Ever since I started read Scootering International I've been totally blown away with the Gran Sport in the above picture ad that was restored by Gran Sport Scooters in the UK. It's really the most beautiful scooter I've ever seen in my life!
Shocking, really! There is something about this Restoration that seems to just capture it all and then some. This scooter is Mod, Sex & Passion all wrapped one freaking drop dead gorgeous Bike. The haunting yellow fog lights, the Florida bars, the silly Moon eyes...I can go forever on how poetic this Vespa is.
I plan to restore my GS exactly like this bike. Truely an inspiration.
