Thanks to Steve for pointing me in the direction of the Lamponi’s Lamps website – allowing me to discover these truly stunning Lamponi’s vintage Vespa headlight lamps.
There’s a range of classic Vespa lights available, as well as the odd Lambretta, all using original handlebars or fittings, completely restored off vintage machines. The lamps are aluminium castings, turned, polished or painted, whatever you require and every single one is made to order to your specification. Which means each piece is a genuine one off (it also means you’ll have to wait around 25 days for Mr Maurizio Lamponi Leopardi to make it).
Great design, individually made – you know it isn’t going to be cheap. The lamps actually retail for between 1300 and 1500 Euros (around £882 – £1,017).
