more info on legshields trims, i copied this sometime ago, I think from the Yahoo GS forum, cant remember WHO wrote this ...

1) EVERY sport model vintage bike came with STAINLESS STEEL Ulma-manufactured legshield trim. It's in 2 pieces, has a scalloped cut down at the bottom where it wraps around the outermost floorstrip endcap, and has BRASS grubb screws to hold it in place...which are tapped into the steel trim.

This also is stamped on each piece with a 3 digit number, and is typically accompanied by the small rabbit logo of the Ulma company who made it. Each model had their own set of trim.. [ GS150 ], [GS160] , [SS180, Rally 180 and Rally 200]. I bracketed the ones that will fit eachother, but each one had it's own set of numbers for them. I want to say the SS180 used #202, the GS160 used #207, and i seem to remember #044 for the Rally 200 but i forget.

This legshield beading is not reproduced, is expensive to get on ebay ( typically about $250 a set ), and is FAR FAR FAR superior to any aftermarket stuff you buy now in every way.

2) In addition to those models above which came STOCK with the ulma trim, they did make ACCESSORY aftermarket trim in the 60's for the VBB / VNB style frame. I forget the numbers for this particular one, but i've seen them for sale on the BBS spam page.

3) You can buy aftermarket chromed steel legshield beading, typically made by cuppini, which is really chinsy. The chrome will flake off pretty quickly, and the set screws aren't tapped - they are just machine screws and frequently vibrate right out of the trim.

4) By default, all the sport models had the ulma trim. Allstates had NO trim. Every other large and smallframe model i can think of that doesn't fall into one of those 2 categories had the standard CRIMPED on aluminum legshield trim. You use a special tool to install this.

I will be faced with getting a trim once my scooter is painted. I didn't realize how involved it is.

Some of the 'restorations' at the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera are awful at best. For factory models the Pascoli Museum is much better. The Casa Lambretta Museum also has a few very obvious Indian repro parts on some of their Lambretta 'restorations'.

Word on the street is Scootopia will be reproducing ULMA the 'inox' trim for the Sports models. Fingers crossed.

Yes, at least they have to put clear when the bike is restored or not, as pascoli does, many people goes there looking for a reference in their restos ..., I always feel that piaggio didnt care so much about vespisti ( specially vintage ones) ( spares, information, references, etc) ...
Anyway the museum and the factory are nice, but could be better, there are no SS180 , no GLs , etc ...

Ah yes, the SS, the good ol' glorified Sprint. That makes sense the 044 would fit.

I have Ulma 041 on my GS 160 mark II. I bought it from Peter (Ricambiscooter) on eBay. I went back and forth with him in messages and he cross-checked several times to make sure it is equivalent to 207. It is according to him. It ended up fitting perfectly, so I don't doubt him.

Can you post photos of your trim... specifically the number at the end.

I also updated my list to take out the question marks. Thank you for confirming.

I imported my list into an excel file I will maintain, and reposted it so it should be a bit neater. And in numerical order.

I also corrected some information.

As always, let me know if you have any information or updates.

Also... Peter from Ricambi Vespa Parts Ebay fame is going to be providing me a scan of a parts manual that will have a lot of updates and new info.

I've found a 250 ULMA set, with extra markings (the hare and an IWDI (?) stamp) - possibly off a Dutch GLx, but not sure.

Nice find. Do yet me know when you figure out what it's off.

If its off a GLx, then I assume its basically a VBB style. Same as a T4 from Germany.

Great list, thanks for compiling it.

Regarding this line:
"107 ULMA Single GS150 Italian"
I can confirm that the 107's are found on Cushman GS150 VS5 that were sold in the US.

Also it should be noted that some of these trims will say 'INOX' on them. Inox is a shortened form for the French word 'inoxydable' and means simply 'stainless steel'. It's not a brand or anything else.

That's a trip. I always thought it was a brand. I guess it does not appear on chromed brass then. Aren't some legshield trims chromed brass?

One of my favorite threads.

Was looking for a reference for the SS180 trim. (Have not been able to find a stamp yet)
