Covering for the basket to keep stuff in and water out. Left the bottom open just in case I spill the milk. Easy cleaning.

Now the final touches. In this time of hard reality. WANTED used vespa tall wind screen, will be cut down. Great condition! For cheap...Lol. On my old road king I had a great set of bags across the inside of the wind screen. Just for glasses, gloves, phone, and other really handy small storage. Really easy to access while riding. And I'm also kicking round the stereo...Lol. Do miss the Road King.

In a more realistic nature, Just moved to the Orlando area and the Vespa is quickly becoming my daily driver. I do have to carry a fair amount of goods with me to and from work. Might just to find a really cheap front rack and start the next basket project....Jason

Looks great. I have similar lever covers, but all in black. I just love the cover over the kickstart lever!

still pimping
So here we go. I have a shark 100 watt audio system in the mail. A few days late. I guess the snow up north is really hurting others. So these are my prep worx....
I started with a piece of black plastic that the neighbor was getting rid of. And here we go. I placed it behind the ram mount for the GPS. The plastic was 3/32 thick. Just enough for the nylocks to engage.

Made a nice leather mount over the plastic for the ipod.

I finally received the Shark audio unit and completed the install.

Coming soon. Shark audio 100 watt review.
The speakers fit nicely in the wind screen cut outs.
