Hi all

My vespa has tipped twice in the wind now (once with the cover on, one without) and I'm pretty keen to prevent any further damage to it. I'm looking to buy crash bars for it, but I have looked around and am aware that the body-size of the vespa will make a difference to the crash bars that I buy (complete novice here).

Does anyone know if these crash bars (https://www.scooter-center.com/en/crash-bar-rear-piaggio-vespa-lx50-lx125-lx150-vespa-lxv50-lxv125-lxv150-chrome-7675787) would work on a two-stroke LX50 (2012)? Alternatively, does anyone know where I should be looking to buy vespa parts? I'm pretty sure it's a "small-bodied" vespa, as I tried putting another set on and they were clearly for a bigger vespa.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts.

Bummer to hear of the knocks! But welcome to the forum.

If the crash bars are listed as fitting an LX, they'll fit your bike, regardless of which engine you have underneath it (as in, they'll fit an LX50, and an LX125, and an LX150). For the vast majority of exterior accessories on modern Vespas, the model name is all you need to pay attention to. All engine versions of the LX have the same body (along with the LXV and the S. They mostly just have different plastic bits and headsets).
