More pictures and details are available on the Net. The Vespa name got carried on from there though it is built for a Lambretta.
Mr. Jay Dyer shows of the VW camper sidecar he built for his son on his scooter in Northwood, Middlesex, UK.

@ john_a_ville/rajive - Thanks for sharing those snaps. they look really great!!

Vespa has recently relaunched scooters in India... they call it premium scooters which I think are bit over priced.
