Those of you who don't know who I am or what I'm flogging, check out http://www.modernvespa.com/forum/topic53254?postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0.
Okay, you're back from reading that thread? What if I told you - theoretically speaking, of course - that the UFP3 brackets could be made available in Europe, and in a configuration that would require no special modification to fit an MP3 /LT. If you have a Fuoco 500, no modification at all, just plug and play; if you have a different MP3, you'll need to punch two little holes in the floorboard mat; and above all, if you own an LT, you have to punch two little holes in the rubber floormat and MAYBE (still working on this) have to lift the little rubber boot under the brake pedal up above the floorboard mat.
Here are some additional provisos: it'll cost $110 US, not $100*, due to shipping costs; I cannot give you a tracking number to track your shipment, so the brackets will show up "whenever they get there"; and it has to be paid in U.S. funds. Check, money order; no credit cards, bank transfers, or paypal.
Are people interested? It appears that the change to the UFP3 to fit a /LT is actually quite minor, and if there is enough interest, that change could be incorporated into the next batch. If you want to get on the waiting list, PM me.
P.S. a long time ago, a French MV member suggested ordering them in quantity in order to get the shipping costs down. If somebody can arrange the logistics of that on their country's end, I'm all for it!
P.P.S. I *DO NOT KNOW* E.U. motor vehicle laws. I do not, for example, know if adding footpegs to an LT suddenly means you need a motorcycle endorsement to drive it or a motorcycle registration to pass inspection. On the other hand, they can be removed very easily...
*As of this date (4/21/10) the actual price is not yet fixed because I am trying to get the new and improved 2010 model - see the thread for details - but if I cannot get the new bracket for the same price then I will allow the interested members to decide whether to get the new model at X dollars or the old version for the old price.
