Pull your camera further back. I need better shots. That being said, It's not that bad. The fact you tackled it on your own, kudos. Thumbs up!

Stealth scooter!!

This looks like radar wouldn't even pick you up.

Don't know that I'd add the red rims and pinstripes, but I'm sure that'll look great too.

Did you take everything apart to paint it?

You can get matte clear coat, I use it a lot in on models. I only use spray cans.

Totally dig it and hope you do the black rims/red stripe like on your sportbike. For some extra bling get the black chrome wings for the Piaggio logo. Smoke the turn signals maybe. Paint the tranny cover... lots of options!

I kinda figured, and I've read your other thread.

No luck finding a wrecked front end you can steal a light from? $500 is steep even if it is the whole assembly.

please don't pinstripe it

less is more, get the rims & grab rail powdercoated matt black, lenses tinted inc rear, lose the rear rack and add a white race number panel and black numbers.

Your bike looks sweet. It's almost like you're murdering it out. I second the black rims....that would look tight. By the way, do you know where I can find that red wheel tape for the rims. I've done a few searches and I can only find tape for 16" rims and larger.

i am very sticky about having a nice shinny waxed paint, but i have to say ever since i saw a matte black MB at a SEMA a couple years back i have been in love with whole idea, on curtain cars, and that matte black looks very nicely done... way to go

Very nice! Too bad you have to put a headlight on. It looks stealthier with without, maybe a brighter running light?

Real nice.
The protective coat would be great, just so that it's not weather that effects the look over time.
