Thaaat's a nice scoot. Yeah, I'd like some more info on that Dakar Vespa too

Have you seen the Rally des Pharons Vespas?

Sorry I'm not good at posting photos.

Apparently it was built for the '08 Dakar by a fellow named Alexandro Ganzetti, and it is based on a smallframe Vespa.

I found a bit about it here which sites this page (in French) as a source, which has it's own source links on the bottom including this one (in Italian. If you're using Google Chrome as a web browser it can translate all of those automatically, otherwise Google can.

From what I can gather from the crappy machine translation it's a modified Polini 130cc, maybe with a 24mm carb, with it's air intake mounted upside down to keep dust from building up. And a custom 25 liter tank. The seat looks like something off the shelf from SIP.

It never competed since '08 Dakar didn't happen and was auctioned off.
