Who rides a bike like this? All suggestions warmly received

The Mod bike was seen on Thursday night and so far no Peers have owned up as the owner. Here at HuffPostUK we live long in the hope that Lords will be ditching their anonymous Bentleys for vintage Italian scooters. We could be waiting for some time.

UPDATE: A helpful reader pointed out that the scooter in our picture is a Lambretta TV175 - not a Vespa as originally stated, so we have changed throughout.
