Ever since Max Yicheng broke onto the scene, he’s made one thing abundantly clear: he can apply his signature style to just about any bike. The man behind the 2LOUD Custom moniker has wrenched on everything from big fours to pint-sized Honda Cubs, with stunning results every time. So when a friend asked for a custom Vespa, Max was all too happy to oblige.
Max’s friend loves classic Vespa scooters in particular, so the donor bike was pieced together from the Italian marque’s greatest hits. The body is a 1960s Vespa 90 unit, while the engine comes from the newer 1980s PK 125. But neither are in original condition any more.
Not only has the monocoque chassis been restored to showroom condition, but it’s sporting some tasteful mods too.
The horn, although customized, sits front and center like it always has on vintage Vespas—but the front fender adornment is new. Max kept the period-correct Vespa and Piaggio badging too, but that’s where the OEM stuff ends.
