I recently was offered a 2015 Primavera 3V at a price that I could not refuse, very low millage and almost as good as new. Color is Crete Senese, came with top box.
I decided to start changing the upholstery and adding a few details based on a new luxury line of accessories being offered by Piaggio for the Primaveras (but a bit pricy for my pocket).
Creta senese with cream leather seat.

Next steps are
1. Leather handgrips matching leather used for the saddle.
2. Leather handle cover
3. SIP foot pegs
4. Glovebox leather bag (maybe same leather as the new saddle)
5. Side stand
6. Change Spark plug, Air filter, Engine oil filter, Engine oil, Hub oil, Sliding shoes / CVT rollers (lighter ones) and 5. Malossi Torsion Controller

Then will probably be a gift for my daughter.

Any other ideas are welcomed

I recommend getting the malossi variator kit and half pulley. The scooter will accelerate a lot better which helps in overtaking.

Grazie Mile Attila! La vespa è un esempio dell'ingegnosità degli italiani, delle soluzioni pratiche ma soprattutto bellezza ed eleganza.

Third part done

1. SIP foot pegs
2. Buzzetti Side stand
3. Changed Spark plug, new malossi Air filter, new Engine oil filter, changed Engine oil, changed Hub oil, 12.5 rollers, changed break fluid, cleaned breaks
4. Malossi Torsion Controller
5. Led bulb in Headlight. Might decide to install the 2020 Led Headlight, it seems it is not that complicated.

Next:
1. Led rear headlight, undecided between just buying the red led bulb and replace or buy the new primavera 2020 rear light.
2. Convert rear signal lights to daylight running lights (not sure how to do it yet).
3. Analyzing options to add rear light to the Vespa small topbox since I would like it to look sock, like the previous topboxes that came with reflectors (Admore led bar attached to the rack or buy those flexible ledbars and instal it directly on the box or buy an old GTS or LX Topcase with reflectors, paint it to match the color and add lights)
Buzzetti sidestand. I should have bought the chromed one..

As far as the rear lights, the OEM Piaggio lights in the EU are just blinkers. I think there are aftermarket kits that include running lights, but they are not a Piaggio product. SIP usually has very good quality sets like that, and theirs are going to be better for you than ones you might find in the US, because your bike is wired like the bikes SIP is getting these parts for.
We just got both of the OEM LED rear tail lights and the EU turn signals, and immediately sold a set to a dealer. There is a lot of interest in getting rid of the US market rear stalks.

Finally I Installed the Mark1 Led front and rear blinkers on the Primavera, AdMore bar for the TopBox and a little license plate red break bar. Also added led bulbs to the headlight and stoplight and a usb charger inside the glovebox. Very happy with the results, with the exception of the license plate one, it blinks all the time and is annoying so will remove it next weekend.

Spanish for those who come from italian has a different flavor than the celtic language...
A great job and not only aesthetic!
Bravo Valvitola.
PS: you should open a Vespa dealership.
