Thankfully it's a one off. At first I was concerned that Piaggio had built it as a replacement for the PX

There is only one GTX... a product of Plymouth. Built in Detroit, by heretics.

This... while the craftsmanship is impressive, just looks like the ass end of hard luck. The scale and sizing looks wonky. Then all the additional cubbies for the periphery items look like lumps on a sore dick.

You did THIS much work and then slapped on some low-rent cheese-dick crash bars and rack?

Red, you've come this far. Maybe you're willing to come a little further. NO not that town in Mexico. Full tilt CUSTOM bars and rack ya dummy!

Really nice workmanship the old gentleman has done, and it goes fast & makes him happy, but...

that big lump in its gut like it's PG or pot bellied Bleh emoticon

If he had turned the curve on the lump the other way and joining it neatly tangent to the existing curves and blended into the sides smoothly, I wouldn't have to just run away screaming!

More portly gut addition, but more dignified?

Get an early Euro P tail light, paint it British Racing Green in honour of its new birthplace and I am almost on board, just needs a manual clutch and 6 gears.

My eyes hurt...

Respect for being able to pull it off.

The PX is already pretty bad looking... it can be helped a little with some T5/lusso parts, but generally isn't a looker...

Didn't know it was possible to make it look even uglier...

I trip out on what people are willing to spend their precious time on sometimes. Like this....thing....it just doesn't fit. Amazing craftsman, but dude...really?

I hope he added USB charging ports and a radio.

I dunno, I quite like it. Not like Ill ever forget it.

Yeah, its ugly, but I think the fullah just wanted it to work, and work it does. Better than the LML auto it started out as. Clever too.

Lots of stuff that starts out with people thinking its ugly ends up appreciated down the line.

This was the last bit of engineering that amused me; lambretta lui 50 with px125 engine. Crazy British. https://youtu.be/jRBmlcGlsdk
