I also need to think ot how to repaint it. I thinking a glossy orange. Highly visible, and a color similar to what Pepe was. (Pepe was a darker metallic orange.)
I was also thinking subtle flames done either as an undercoat of color changing paint or in metallic orange, but the body shape of the vehicle does not lend it's self to flames. So the other it is on the front or the side of the scooter, put a white and black checker board with a red, white, and blue concentric circles like WWI and WWII fighter planes had. This would be reminiscent of the mod stylings of classic Vespas.
