SS Scooter Engineering of Sydney Australia are the people behind this latest piece of scooter art that we’ve recently discovered on the world-wide web.
Sandy is the owner and head mechanic at S.S. Scooter Engineering and he has spent two years planning and building the smart Vespa Street Racer you see here.
Amongst the features to get you drooling are some Worb 5 drop handlebars from Germany, a digital speedo, digital tacho, a beautiful Billet master cylinder, full hydraulic Billet front disc brake, semi-hydraulic rear disc conversion, a wide tyre kit with 130-70×10 rubber fitted, a BGM damper and STO spring at the front and Bitubo at the rear, and Sandy sits himself upon a SIP sport seat.
As for the engine, the Vespa T5 cases have been ported and blue-printed and a ported Malossi barrel and piston fitted to the top end. It breathes via a 28mm Dellorto PHBH carburettor through a Yamaha RD 350 reed block and V-Force 4 reed valve. Power reaches the rear wheel via an up-geared primary drive, reinforced MMW clutch, and the party piece for the whole lot is a Nitros Oxide System apparently boasts an 8 HP boost in third and fourth with the throttle wide open!
And if the engine is not impressive enough, the polished parts, billet and titanium paint make for an overall visual appearance to match the performance.
