R2D2 themed Vespa wins our hearts
Geekologie has an strong fan base and most of them believe in the force. Morgan is one of them and she by herself modded her Vespa to look like this. Morgan does it talk back to you with strange beeps?
I am a fifth grade teacher/SW nerd, and I recently converted my Vespa that I ride into work every day to look like the one and only R2. This was done with adhesive vinyl, some meticulous cutting and a 12-pack of beer. It gets a lot of looks and thumbs up, and often times while I am sitting at a stop light someone crossing the street will pause to take notice. The rear trunk is a real vintage piece and I removed the original faded travel stickers and replaced them with various retro style Star Wars art and posters that I found on the internet. Love the site, I check it everyday. I often share some of the more interesting things I see on your site with my class, content and language permitting.
