That legshield trim looks spot on. Did you restore or did you get it elsewhere?

The Vespa 160 has a narrower legshield which leaves few options for ghid items. The trim you've got seems to fit as a glove.

That's grey scoot is not mine. I would love to know what they used.

My googling and "research" indicate Primavera leg shield trim is a good fit if you go crimped. And similar crimped trim was used by the factory in a number of years. Have not been able to source the make of the steel/chrome trim. It isn't ulma... so a bit of a mystery. If anyone knows please post up.

I have an aluminum crimped Primavera legshield trim on my Vespa GS150. My Vespa also has the narrower shield.

I'm after a chromed 2 pieces trim like the one on the photo. It seems to fit perfect.

Nobody makes them. Besides repro trims never tend to be that good, unfortunately.

Kajiit was a generous gracious host. GL had a great time, talkin shop n scooters n stuff. Hauling away a pile of useful parts was an extra bonus.

The Spanish is in good hands, but also needed a little attention, so I happily obliged.
