I bought this rack off eBay. The seller said genuine Vespa/OEM. But it doesn't look like the pictures I see online. It looks more like a Faco to me. I don't mind, the price was fair, I am more just curious what I got. It does say Vespa on it. I added the red felt to keep it from touching the paint.
It could be OEM. But it looks more like an FA Italia rack than anything else that I can think of. FA Italia is sturdier and the chrome is better than the OEM stuff, so you didn't do bad if that's what it is.
If it has Vespa stamped on, it’s an original Vespa/Piaggio product, but that does not tell you just what it was designed for, and some are actually ‘factory install’ and that does make a difference, st least for the LX, LXV.
Yea, it looks just like FA Italia but it has Vespa etched into it and that matches what is on my OEM crash bars. I wonder if it came stock on some earlier GTS, special edition, what have you. Interesting, thanks all!
