Thanks for getting the ball rolling. I've been meaning to do this, but... I'm lazy.

I haven't done too much to it yet. Louvered black door, fender chrome (thinking about powder coating that black), Euro signal mod, removed and plugged side reflectors, tore off the cheesy plasti-chrome bar ends and, well, yeah, three seats.

Since I removed my rack and grab rail, I need to be able to carry a top bag on the rear of my seat. The stock seat sucks for that. The pillion part is small and the lip of the seat pan is lower down than other seats which makes it a bitch to get straps under there. So I purchased an ET seat. I've used it the most.

I traded the stock seat from my wrecked LX for the S seat. The sexiest seat made for a Modern Vespa I've mostly used it when going for rides rather than shopping, but I recently found a cheap roll bag at Value Village that fits OK on the back, so I'll be using this seat a ton now.

Added a top case to the LXV. Wife says let's not add the crash bars, so we have them in a box. Check out the pics at LXV (or LX) gets GTV (or GTS) Top Case - I Like It

I've got crash bars sitting around as well. I've gradually come around to going the minimalist route on this one, so they may go unused.

New pictures of my LXV playing with friends.
With three scoots in the yard, life used to be so hard...

If you ever decide to sell those, shoot me a message. I've been considering rear crash bars for my LXV but shipping + duty to buy them new is nearly as much as the bars themselves.

Looking at the lines looks like original seat but blended into one and then re- covered looks nice but I like the fact that two seats on the vintage look

Here is mine. I also have a GTV 6Giorni but LOVE this LXV 125ie with Malossi 190kit. Waiting arrival of the Malossi RS24 front shock recommended by Judy (RIP).
