Hi everybody!!When I first bought my gtv, one of the accesories I really like to install was the front rack. Unfortunately, at the shop they told me it was imposible to install the gts front rack at the gtv...They said it was because of the gtvīs handlebar...

Despite the advices, I decided to buy it and try myself. My surprise came when it happened to be true. It didnīt fit correctly!!!

Here I show you how I finally (making some mods) I made it fit.

Here the original piaggo upper pieces, to hold the rack.

Then using a hammer I got this form...

The next step was to make a little "bite" on the plastic piece under the handlerbar. (sorry my english!)

And finallly just installing it!

I wish it could be useful!!!

Bien hecho!
I love my front rack but I would never have the nerve to make it work as well as you did!

This worked perfect for the GTV. It is impossible to do with out the modifications.

Thanks for taking the time to post the procedure.
