Russia’s Butcher Garage specializes in building extreme custom scooters and their Vespa PX 150 ‘Escape’ clearly reflects that. Envisioned as a bike that allows you to escape from the city when needed, this scrambler-style 2-wheeler combines off-road qualities with urban design.
The scooter (named after Steve McQueen’s 1963 epic film “The Great Escape”) is inspired by the desert sleds of the 60s-70s. It’s based on a Vespa PX 150 and features a reworked monocoque body, vintage Husqvarna fuel tank & BSA-like seat, long-travel pit bike fork, SIP shocks, and full hydraulic brakes.
The lengthy list of upgrades also includes Fat Bars with Domino quick action throttle, a folding clutch lever, LED tail light, custom ‘curly’ exhaust tubes, plus new crankshaft, ignition, clutch and driveshaft. Finished in black, red and white with an ‘aged’ checkered rear section, this mad scooter has enough oomph to induce a permanent grin on the face of anyone brave enough to ride it.
