The Volkspod was created from the parts of an original volkswagen beetle. Surprisingly the scooter appears to have been custom-built by the company itself.

Walter used the car’s unmistakable fenders from a Volkswagen Type 1 model as the scooter’s body and then fashioned a chassis, handlebars, and a cute looking single seat.

Walter, who detailed the scooter’s making on his Instagram page, said the idea behind the Volkspod was because he “wanted a scooter to take to VW shows.

He added that :





“These fenders were leftover from building my car. I also wanted to practice welding the thin sheet metal panels.”

Walter built two versions of the scooters; the first one with small wheels and a Volkswagen engine, while the second one has bigger wheels and a Volkswagen engine.

“The original (green) has a 79cc motor and is more for looks than it is practical. The second (blue) one has more ground clearance and a 212cc motor.

It is more practical to ride around on the road,” said Walter. He also put in a tail light and a logo for the pod. While it may be a vintage car, Walter said it was quite easy to find parts for the Beetle decades after it was first released.

“There seems to be plenty of old Beetle fenders at swap meets,” he noted.
