Hi all. My brown saddle is having difficulty fitting in on the black PX, so I'm gonna add some brown grips, but having difficulty getting the correct size...

I know that these are available in packs of 22 +24mm for modern bike, but I'll need two sets to get the 24mm pair... The US sizes that I'm seeing online are 7/8 or 1inch... Which seems to suggest 22mm or 25.4mm....

Are these compatible with classic style Vespa's?

The only thing weird to me about them is they lack the circular flange-like feature on the inside edge, if you know what I mean, but then again I come from older than P series school.

Whatever you do buy, not wishing to teach granny to suck eggs, put them in hot water for 10 minutes before you put them on. They will slide on like butter and shrink down to a really tight non slip fit when they cool.

What is that on the floor? Looks like a blow up doll.
