Volkspods – Custom Built ‘Beetle’ Motorcycles by Brent Walter

After 80 years of production, Volkswagen has stopped producing legendary Beetles. Brent Walter had something to say to that, or maybe more accurate – weld something. He created his unique Volkspods. Walter made 2 Volkspods: “The original (green) has a 79cc motor and is more for looks than it is practical,” Walter told bored panda in an interview. “The second (blue) one has more ground clearance and a 212cc motor. It is more practical to ride around on the road.” Brent is actually managing the manufacturing of medical devices, and just as a hobby, he builds and welds these epic machines. “I wanted a scooter to take to VW shows. These fenders were leftover from building my car. I also wanted to practice welding the thin sheet metal panels.” The entire process of building Volkspods is documented on his Instagram profile where he shared insights on how the motorcycles were built.
