I am a new Member here...so hello to all.
I have been living in the Dieselpunk space for many years and but had no idea there was a name for the "lifestyle" I had been living. I was just doing my own thing...dressing in 1940's mens clothes...taking old stuff from the 30's and 40's and updating it with modern electronics or mechanics while keeping the vintage aesthetic.
I was pretty surprised to find you guys...lol. I had no idea an entire global community existed.
Anyway - I am a HUGE scooter enthusiast and love vintage scooters (and also modern scooters with a vintage look). I just bought a 2013 Honda Metropolitan. It's takes significant styling queues from postwar Vespa's. To be accurate, the styling of the bike is probably leaning towards the early 50's Vespa's...which just misses the Dieselpunk genre by a hair...but who's splitting hairs here?...lol.
I love building scooter cargo trailers. I own three scooters and all three have trailers. This particular trailer for the Metropolitan is full-blown Dieselpunk. I studied hundreds of pics of WWII military motorcycle sidecars and other military hardware. Please let me know what you think!
P.S. I've also attached a pic of my vintage Vespa for which I also built a cargo trailer.
