It is absolutely the best seat you can get, in my humble opinion. No more tired butt.
Which seat is this? Where can I get one?

It looks like a Corbin seat.

Sure looks like a Russell all day saddle to me too! I have one and they are killer! I drove 6 hours, round trip, in the rain, to get my seat. It is worth the price if you ride every day. I only had the front seat done and it was about $600. The one in the picture above had the read end done too.

I am 5' 6" and I had them move the seat forward, and that actually lowered my riding position.

It's expensive but worth it

Coming from the honda ruckus game, I am surprised no one has modified the Mp3... not even wheels.

Hi all,

I' ve been lurking this forum for years but finally found a used mp3 250 for a good price a few weeks ago.

This forum has been a huge resource in researching before my purchase to know what issues to look for and I've already had use for some of the information around lost keys etc. Seems like a truly great community here!

I really enjoy my Mp3 and last week I made a small "mod" that I thought I would share.

I bought reflective tape to use on the rims but had issues getting it to line up nicely enough so I ended up using it on the front instead.
I've always been a bit worried about visibility and now when the mp3 I bought is all black I think this could improve daylight visbility a bit at least.

In my opinion it highlights the rather cool shapes of the front's different elements and should hopefully "disturb" the eye a bit more than an all black front..

What do you think?
I like this look! I was actually just contemplating very similar accents, myself!

I finally accepted what I can and can't do with my skills and budget. So, tonight I made her safer, sportier and sexier for under $20! I love the pinstripes, but what do you all think? She's an owl!!!

I think that's a fantastic idea, D.B. Is that pinstripe an off- the- shelf item from an auto parts store?

Thanks, George! Yes, I only needed one roll and I still have some left to do my top case. It's just the reflective wheel tape in silver.

Color-changing vinyl wrap on the MP3 500. I used Avery Colorflow "Thunder Road" satin. Plus LED tail lights, turn signals and headlights.

Back in the day when I had a 2006 Corvette, we all differentiated our vehicles by virtue of the modifications we did to them. These included such changes as new wheels, paint, engine modifications, suspension mods, and anything else we could consider to fully personalize our vehicles. Not much has changed whether it is two or four Wheels for transportation.

We all differentiate our Vespas by our modifications to them. I am no exception!.
