The classic Volkswagen Beetle is instantly recognizable even if you aren’t a car fanatic. Since 1938, over 21 million of these cute tiny vehicles have been produced, with the final one rolling off the assembly line in 2003, indicating the automobile has been in existence for 65 years! Brent Walter took the fenders from an old Beetle to make two lovely miniature motorbikes he named “Volkspods,” inspired by the car’s ageless look.

Brent Walter recently made these small bikes out of vintage VW Beetle fenders.

The motorcycles have 79cc, and 212cc engines and are painted in traditional green and blue.

Brent said in an interview that he wanted a scooter to go to Volkwagen exhibitions. “These fenders were leftovers during the construction of my automobile. The handyman said, “I also wanted to practice welding the thin sheet metal panels.”

Since day one, many followers have been watching Brent’s growth on his Instagram account.

Since March of this year, Brent has been working on the two motorcycles. “The original (green) had a 79cc engine and is more decorative than functional. The second (blue) one has a 212cc engine and better ground clearance. “Riding around on the road is more practical,” Brent said.

You may assume that fenders for these ancient automobiles are hard to come by, but according to Brent, the reverse is true. It seems that parts for the vintage Beetles are surprisingly simple to go by, particularly at swap meetings.
