Portuguese craftsman Carlos Alberto handbuilt this sublime wooden Vespa. I think the classic Vespa is one of the most beautiful designs in history, and this is a truly worthy remake.

    The craftsman ship is wonderful, the time spent doing is a amazing commitment I would think. I would love to know the weight of the bike before and after his work.

    Im just wondering if the increased weight of the wood affects performance?

    Even if so, it IS a pretty novelty to have!
