Portuguese carpenter Carlos Alberto has created this wonderful wooden Vespa, named after his daughter Daniela. I may use these images to shame my father about the shocking lack of home-made motorised gifts that have made their way to me lately / EVER.

Vital stats:
Maximum speed: 75km / h
Engine: 123.67 cc
Woods used: rosewood, ebony, beech, satin-wood, Brazilian cherry, tacula, panga-panga, sucupira, and sycamore
