With so many slick electric motorcycles on the horizon, it’s getting increasingly difficult to justify the use of polluting, petroleum-powered older models. But instead of sending old Vespas to the trash pile, Spanish design studio Bel & Bel has a more creative solution: turn the stylish relics into snazzy pieces of furniture!

Bel & Bel’s series of handmade leather chairs is constructed from the front shield and spare parts of old Vespas. The like-new chairs appear to be ready to hit the streets (or cubicle-lined hallways) at any moment!

The Vespa series is not the first example of upcycled furniture we’ve seen–others include the Scrap Lab’s furniture made from industrial scraps and Chris Burton’s Repose Lounge.
