Presentation of the Scoopy Gaudí

Barcelona, the city with the largest number of motorcycles in Europe, was the setting for the presentation of a scooter decorated with Gaudinian references.

The coach Cas Racin, with the collaboration of Impala (Honda franchise), presented the "Scoopy Gaudí". It is the high-wheel Honda Scoopy 50 model, which has been decorated in great detail: the bodywork has been covered by hand with more than 1,300 vinyl pieces which were later lacquered to recreate the effect of trencadís; a reproduction of the dragon in Güell Park has been placed on the front mudguard; the images of the staircase in the Sagrada Família on the central part of the disc brake; and replicas of the chimneys in La Pedrera on the counterweights. Also of note are the driving mirror made in wrought iron, the customised dials, the number plate support or the aluminium mat.

In the preparation of the project, Cas Racing has received the support of Ghirardi, Ariete and Impala. The "Scoopy Gaudí" is exhibited at Impala-Honda, carrer Amigó, no. 25, Barcelona.
