I was looking at rear folding rack and front rack. I just got the Vespa OEM rear protection bar put on. The quality was excellent coated, but prices . I just like to know have anyone have try different brands and how was the quality level?

I've had Cuppini and Faco in the past and they were quite nice, but I do feel Vespa parts are nicer and fit better.

IMHO, FA Italia is probably the best of the aftermarket suppliers, and I would compare their chrome finish favorably to the Piaggio parts made in Italy. It seems a lot better than the Piaggio accessories coming out of Vietnam.

I just pick up FA folding rear rack. It's fit fine, but the OEM cover rear mount (where the two bolts)does not fit. The finishing is dole, more flat black mat. My rear crash bar OEM has more gloss. I wondering if I could paint simi gloss ( FA rack) to match the crash bar??

I went with the Faco twin for my new scoot. It's received good reviews here and hopefully I made the right decision. I'm hoping the parts come in and I can pick it up soon. Top case is back ordered until June but that's fine.

I have the Piaggio rear folding rack. I went back and added the Faco front folding rack as well as Faco dual windshield. Been very happy with both.

Reason I went with Faco over Piaggio-> no drilling during install on either accessory.

Sorry for the gross picture-I hope it doesn't "bug" you, but this was me cleaning it after my Iron Butt ride a few weeks ago.
