The chrome accessories available in PIAGGIO's own range stand out from the rest of the crowd with the excellent quality of the chrome plating itself. A very high quality, perfect surface finishing is combined with exact dimensioning, to guarantee a perfect appearance and fit. A complicated brazing process eliminates the need for any unpleasant looking weld seams to be necessary in their production. (see close-up photo). All of their chrome accessories possess a decently engraved Vespa logo (see close-up photo), which makes the original equipment easy to spot.
The front carrier is attached directly to the frame of your Vespa with two fixing bolts. This will require two holes to be made before mounting the carrier which are best taken care of by using a sheet-metal twist drill bit for a tidy job. A stencil showing the exact positioning of these holes is included in the delivery, making a perfect result achievable for the less skilled amongst us. To ensure a solid attachment of the front carrier system, a threaded bolt is also used to fix it securely beneath the horn cover. A chromed horn cover trim complete with an opening suitable for the fixing bolt is also included. Please check the year your LX model was produced as the earlier models possess a differently shaped horn cover trim (round or square) than later versions.
The rear carrier is connected to the chassis by four bolts. Although the existing grab rail must be removed during installation the carrier itself has a grab rail that the pillion can use instead. In addition even more security and comfort is provided by the small cissy bar, incorporated into its design. To adequately disguise the ugly frame mounting points we recommend the use of the chrome Vespa logo covers, which are also include in the delivery. Their luggage rack is ideal for carrying a colour matched original PIAGGIO topcase, or that of any other manufacturer!
The crash bars for the mudguard, legshield and sidepanel are firmly bolted to its chassis. In case of an accidental spill, they will reliably protect your paintwork and frame from any damage. Thanks to the oversized bolts used to connect these crash bars (see close-up photo), they stay in shape and position to do their job, keeping your pride and joy intact!
Conclusion: Noticeably high end production, combined with an excellent fit to your scooter, every-time!
SIP-TIP: Complete the look with other chrome accessories such as a tasty lamp surround, snazzy horn cover trim and steering assembly decoration.
