i'd modify another bike's hugger mudguard to accomodate the vespa. BMW GS or Triumph might work. Likely cost about 100/150.

Yes, that'll teach Piaggio to charge too much for mud guards!
That must have taken you about 300 pounds of work...

Built right by a proper panelbeater by the look of your photos. Wheeling machines - don't see them much these days.

Hi , would there be a chance for you to replicate the one you made? I am after a similar one and a Zelioni on SIP goes well over £300.
Would that be a cheaper option or can I find something from another scooter/motorbikes to finish my project? That is the only thing missing and I donít like to put the OEM as if it brakes the whole fork need to come off for repair.
Thank you
