Nice scoot, mr.j!
Can you share more about your rear rack and how it's mounted. I've taken the funky/ugly leg shield, refrigerator type, wire rack off, but have no where to put stuff anymore.
I'm also curious about the helmet hook on your seat? I have a 50 special with no hook. Is it stock to mount on the seat?
Hi PacRat, thank you for the compliment and welcome to the NSM side of MV! I read your thread and sweet 50 smallframe you picked up ahem I mean wifey. I think your colour is called Hawthorne White and you have the US tractor style tail lamp.
The rear rack came with the scoot and is made by F.A.R. SpA Italy, unfortunately they are no longer produced. It is held on by the seat pin and a backing plate that is located behind the rear tail lamp.
You can find other versions: rear rack
. Some can hold a spare tire and most of the designs that I see currently produced will need additional mounting rods and possible drilling in the frame.
The helmet hook comes stock mounted on most bench seats but some members prefer them just below the seat and mounted to the frame. It's very handy for holding the helmet and securing your take away dinner, it gets way more use vs the rack.
-Its cool how VW's enthusiasts seem to also flock to the simplicity of the ol' scoots and vice versa. I dream of a Westy with a Subaru conversion or even a Syncro. Post a pic of your 67 bus, when you can. Cheers!
