Thought someone might be interested in what a chrome Gilera Runner (rear) wheel looks like. It is 13x3.5 with a 130/60R13 Michelin Pure Power tire. Also chromed: swingarm, exhaust bracket, & centerstand. The muffler & downpipe have been lightly smoothed & polished.

Wheel is available here: https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/rim+rear+piaggio+for+gilera+_pi56390rg

Nice! Very shiny but tasteful. Gilera Runners are great bikes. Looks like yours is a newer 4 stroke but I especially like the '99 & older 2 strokes, the 180 FXR makes over 15 HP and can outrun bigger bikes. And the 2 cylinder injected Gilera GP800 w/ 75 HP was claimed to be the the world's fastest production scooter. Piaggio makes more than just Vespas but we can't get most of it in the US.

I like chrome stuff, and I like what you've done to your scooter.

Looks good. Are you planning on adding a GTS Chrome Suspension Cover? Also I found Chrome Wheel Bolt Covers M6 Allen Key on Amazon for few dollars that provide a nice finished look to the chrome wheels
