#3 – Vintage Vespas


The venerable Vespa is the most obvious entry on this list, as they’ve been cool from the day they were introduced. Unfortunately, and understandably, hipsters have embraced vintage Vespas as their mode d’emploi for years now – in fact, in a recent photo feature entitled the “Evolution of the Hipster,” Paste Magazine asserts the Vespa was intrinsic in hipster development. Whether a vintage two-stroker or a modern fuel-injected four-stroke, Vespas offer charismatic charm that endears them to hipsters and regular scooter aficionados alike. (Bonus hipster scooter points for selecting a vintage Lambretta to be more different, thus more hip.). Be that as it may, here’s hoping that the Vespa survives long after the hipster’s demise.
