Vespa 300 GTS SuperSport – Scott Special

What started as a standard Blu Vivace SuperSport has now emerged as an impressive and subtle upgrade of an already smart scooter.

The Standard Vespa is shown below, the Satin Blue paint finish has Red highlights and a good sprinkle of chrome components.

All the chrome components were removed and replaced with black items.

The list includes.

  • Leg Shield Beading.
  • Headlight Frame
  • Speedometer Bezel
  • Rear Rack and Back Rest
  • Front Panel inserts
  • Front Panel Piaggio Badge (Black and Blue)
  • Rear Footrests powder coated and attached to extenders.
  • Front Suspension Spring powder coated Black
  • Transmission Housing Painted Black
  • Vespa and GTS Badges changed to gunmetal Grey.
  • Levers replaced
  • Rizoma Mirrors and Grips c/w Bar Ends
  • Rear Light Unit with Black surround fitted
  • Front and Rear LED lights – Indicators and Day Time running Lights.
  • The standard Black and Red Graphics were removed and replaced with Black only, with addition of Black Stripes to the Offside Front Panel.

During this process the Vespa had to have a few panels removed ! see photo below.

Accessories added to the project include:-

  • Addition of a Black SLUK Driver Screen that provides mounting for the Zumo Sat Nav from Garmin as well as wind protection.
  • Replacement Sports exhaust from Scorpion
  • Rear and Front Bumper/Fender Protectors
  • Fender extenders
  • Front Rack
  • Rear Rack and Back Rest

And to help protect the paint work the entire machine was treated with DiamondBrite, along with ACF treatment in those difficult to reach areas underneath.

The scooter went into production in Italy at the end of the lockdown, and given some supply chain “opportunities”, the machine was handed over to the new owner on 1st September with a 70 reg plate. The modifications were carried out at Dearden Motorcycles.

Many thanks Graham for trusting us with this project.
