Side-stands are just as cool as they are practical. Instead of having to pull the whole scooter up onto the centre stand every time you park, you can just kick out the stand with your heel and leave the scoot leaned over waiting for action.
We have side-stands with one or two return spring(s) available. The versions produced by RMS or SIP with two return springs are constructed to return automatically when the stand leave the ground so making their use legal in all European countries. We have side-stands available produced by a number of different Italian manufacturers with either a black painted or chrome plated finish and both square section or tubular design. If you are looking for something extravagant to catch the eye we also have a square section, twisted chrome version available.
Side-stands are usually attached to your Vespa between the frame and the main stand itself although we do also have a version available that can be attached using the main engine connection bolt (PART No 75191000). If you want to keep the centre stand when the side stand is also fitted, longer fixing bolts will be necessary to accommodate both, after all, have you ever tried changing a wheel without a main-stand?
With modification PX side-stands can be used for earlier 8" and 10" Largeframe models of Vespa 125 VNA-TS/150 VBA-T4/160 GS/180 SS/Rally. A template of the original fixing holes, adapted to the PX items and slight alteration of the side-stands angle may be necessary.
Conclusion: Side stands are quick and easy to use and also present the motor side of your Vespa from its finest angle.
SIP-TIP: Combined with chromed motor parts a chromed side stand really makes a scooter stand out from the crowd.
