BITUBO goes 160GS/180SS
While crossing the Dolomites on our vintage scooters on our trip to Treviso in Italy, we realized that it was about time to either produce a reasonable new front suspension or bring back to life an earlier version. Especially on downhill rides as well as in bends, pulling your scooter’s brakes hard is not much fun when riding the original suspension. It somehow feels just like bouncing on your little sister’s worn-out hop ball, a true lowrider feeling during compression.
Instant planning for a BITUBO for the GS/SS class was the result. Drawing on the inspiration of our 70ies friends from Vicenza who happened to have the same idea the project was translated into action. The aim was clear-cut – pimping a V50 BITUBO enough to be easily fit with the help of some adapting pieces, simple „plug and play“ workmanship.
