Not sure how I feel about the rack.

Con:
1. It's super awkward
2. It kind of changes the lines of the bike

Pro:
1. It's pristine, 100% original and period correct. Basically every American Rally had one.
2. Also very useful for carrying things
3. The backrest is very comfortable for a passenger.
4. Like all the original American parts, it was super common at one point, and now pretty rare.

But mounted it to see is it its straight, and it sits perfectly.

That was the only accessory I had on my P150 in the late 80's. I know my gf at the time appreciated it. I strapped a steamer trunk to it when I moved into my dorm and hauled a lot of stuff with it.

I like it. I think it'll feel less out of place once you have the seat on, maybe?

The indicators and tail light already changed the lines of the bike. The rack kind of helps.

One reupholstered seat, with strap.

It's pretty amazing you can get all these parts from Pascoli. The only thing left is the original seat frame.

They even have the color right. It's like a almost black shade of blue.

It's not perfect. But it's pretty close to original. Probably closer than the reproduction ones.












Before shot.

Those brake switches are a nightmare!

Turns out my wheel wasn't warped. Two of the studs had threads that needed to be recut, and they didn't tighten all the way before.


This was so hard to solder right. But works. I used the parts from a new swtich on the old blue one.


Taillight


Brake light


The feet from my seat don't line up with the P rack. :(


But like the look of it. Just very original 1970s.
