I'm been looking at aftermarket legshield trim for my GS 160 because I haven't been able to find the original Inox 207. Eventually I hope to find it, but until then copied stuff will suffice.
I've looked at the Pascoli, but it says 'chrome' which I guess means it's plated and not stainless. Asking a question and receiving a reply from them doesn't work.
SIP has Pascoli trim and they claim it's stainless, so maybe that's the same stuff that's been marked up.
I then found this http://www.ebay.com/itm/400585460559?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2648 on eBay from a German distributor. It makes a pretty heavy claim in the title of the listing as being 'Original'. I asked and the vendor and he said that it's made in Vietnam, but very high quality and as close to the original as possible. So, that means it's not original. Usually you get what you pay for, so the 120 Euro price tag makes me think it might be decent. Most of the other trim out there is around 40-50 Euros. Still though, 120 is a lot of money to spend on something made in Vietnam. No offense to Vietnamese products, but I've seen enough of them to harbor this generalization. What do you think?
If anybody knows where I can find the real #207 or has experience with aftermarket trim, I'd appreciate the feedback. I've tried cheaper stuff, and it rusts after a month or so.
