This was on my '06 GT 200 when I bought it, soon taken off because I just don't need it. I've got it up for sale, with an prospective buyer, but we're both after much research unable to find out who makes this thing.

It has no name, embossed marks etc...Nothing! It's heavy, good chrome, is very solid when mounted, and works well as a carrier and backrest the one time we took it out.

You'd think whoever made it would want to advertise on it, but just nothing there. What do the experts think?

Thanks

Cuppini is the only company I know that does the 70's Easy Rider Backrest for the Modern Vespa. That would be my guess.

Thanks Motovista! They may well have made some in the past, but nothing currently looking like mine. So many outfits have dropped out in these tough times, but this one could have continued selling I think.

Man Brighten Belle, I think you've nailed it. The angles and the square backrest pad do look like it. Well they don't make it anymore looks like, but it's a good one.

That scoot of yours is Fantastic! I'll bet you and it are well known there! Congrats on the ballsy upgrades.

Okay so I am the prospective buyer! When my scooter grows up I want it to look just like this. What did you give her/him? Steroids?

No Just The MOD Style Look "Brighton Belle" is named after a train that travelled between London & Brighton in the 60's

Glad you like her and her style as she goes like a train
cheers Mike
