I found this one the other day which is not too invasive either. No link, it was a youtube video of a young Italian guy showing off with no gloves (sorry just described every Italian Vespa youtube video).

CM the link to Aliexpress gets us there but not the specific one.
Wow

Little sleuthing.
Looks like it is made by a company called D.B. something. Cant make it out.
Anyone know who that might be?
Info here - maybe this is an early version of the stainless one in the pic?

Or he says to contact him here - https://www.instagram.com/lollo_cilla/

Probably just as easy to make it?

Ahh - should have known Ginch would find it.
Of course - I have my bodge sources also - so not to be outdone...
Scooter Clinic in Malaysia will sell either of these models - with damper - for $150 US.

They are using the same damper as the Italian video.
That damper can also be purchased here for $29.00: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33031714070.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.211916a7ZatvpL&algo_pvid=65bb391d-706b-42ee-8267-1d9b6ac3f555&algo_expid=65bb391d-706b-42ee-8267-1d9b6ac3f555-37&btsid=0ab50a5715892423961004893ee955&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_
The mount is a bit less refined but very similar.

Jack - since this is your thread we are hijacking - let it be said that I don't know anyone who would want to get on the back of your scoot anyway - having seen the videos...

Think I just figured out what I am going to do with that damper I bought...

Cheers guys. Wish there was a way of not having the steering damper right in your face.

Something rotary at the base of the horn cover would be perfect. Would be quite a niche market to make something to fit.

Using motorcycle ones seems like the only solution. Will see how I go with new tyre and shocks. Will not make it worse

A mate of mine built this when he had a broken leg. Put the steering damper on afterwards. It does require small mounting holes through the legsheilds, otherwise it connects directly to a bracket attached to the top of the mudguard mount.

The damper is great - however - the sidecar has been mounted to the wrong side!

Ha ha! Next you'll be telling me we should all be using special gallons to measure our petrol gas?

Sidecar must be on the correct side because you can kick start it and work on the engine.

This is the kind of steering damper fitting I think I'm going to end up with. On the front attached in a similar way. Will see how it goes when it's back on the road.

I might drill holes in my legshield for a damper setup like that. You could also fabricate a bracket that hooked into the legshield and mount the damper to that if you were really anti-drilling.
