Gap offers custom-striped Vespa LX50

Gap
has taken time out from making casual clothing for middle-management to dress up a Vespa LX50 scooter in stripes.

As far as we know (and please tell us if we’re wrong), this is only available in the US and only for a limited time or while stocks last (December 23rd 2007 at the latest according to Gap). The bike itself is nothing different to the standard LX model with a 50cc engine and throwback looks – although its asking price of $6,000 (£3,000) is much higher.

Whether it’s worth around $2,000 (£1,000) more for the stripes, I’m not sure. If you think it is, get down to your Vespa dealer sharpish.
