Remember my saying that an R2-D2 paint job makes everything look cooler? It’s even true for Vespas.
Geekologie reader Morgan fancied her scooter up to look like the lovable droid:
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.
She is officially awesome.
