Chomping at the bit here . Ordered a slew of accessories for my GTS . They will surely add a bit of weight to the scoot and have made my wallet a good bit lighter ! LOL!
What the heck ! May as well make it how you want it and enjoy for many years to come I say !
Cheers all !

I got a front and rear folding rack . The bottom rear chrome guard. And the big ticket items , the Vespa leather "tobacco" duel seat and matching Classic leather rear bag .
Looking for matching leather grips .. Was torn between going sporty looking or classic looking . Classic won out . Lol!

Well I sold my 150 and getting ready to sell my Suzuki Marauder 800 .
So that gave me a bit of mad money for the desired accessories .
The boat in my avitar is my 1950 Wagemaker Wolverine . Its cold molded mahogany ply hull with mahogany planked deck . The motor is a 1949 Evinrude Speeditwin 22.5 hp .
All original boat and motor . Its a bit under powered but will plane out with me and my wife running around 20 mph ..I am currently restoring a classic merc 45 hp that will give it plenty more push .. Also it has elect start with FNR gears . The Speeditwin is what we call a dock buster . No neutral , pull and go !
I am a member of the ACBS and the AOMCI . Im really trying not to find a vintage Vespa !
Knowing me I would end up with a garage full of them LOL!

Wow! What an amazing boat. Absolutely beautiful!
Have you ever been to the Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance? So many incredible vintage boats in one place.

I know of this place but have not been there . I think the big international show was there a year ago . It would be a long drive from Florida . It's on the bucket list though .

Sam,

You know you have to post a photo when you get all that good stuff
installed.

Beautiful scooter, excellent vintage boat and motor.

You know when it is cool on the lake, you really should be wearing a
eight panel Irish cap. Rounds out the vintage look. Also, perhaps a
Churchill Maduro Cigar.

Nice stuff you have Sam - best to you.

Thanks Bob !
Seeing as I just had some skin cancer cut off the top of my head a week ago . The hat is probably a good idea ! I should have worn one growing up so maybe I wouldn't have this hole in my head . I am Irish so would be fitting ! The cigar sounds nice but I quit those 4 years ago when my wife stopped smoking cigarettes. We're not planning on starting back up . At least we hope not .
Accessories arrived yesterday ! 😋 The boxes were mangled quite a bit but fortunately nothing inside was molested ..
Stayed up in the garage and installed everything but the bottom rear crash bars .
Looking at one of Robots vids on installing them requires a bit more disassembly than I thought it would . So gunna tackle it this morning .
Honestly whoever has the job of writing up the instructions on these Italian parts should be fired ! LOL! Thank goodness for YouTube..
No good pics yet but here is a tease pic ..

Anyway , I love the new accessories ! The seat placement would be more comfortable if it were about 2" or 3" further back . I'm 6' tall and feel a bit squished forward .
Maybe I should have purchased the bench style seat instead.
That would give more room .
The windshield is nice and worked well on our ride .
I had to remove the side deflectors to install the bottom rear guards . I don't mind that but need to fill in the holes it left . I may just fill with white caulking if I can't find some sort of plug to insert ..

You can buy color matched plugs from Scooterwest and AF1 but since yours is white you might find some at the hardware store. Or consider white reflective pinstriping. It will be virtually unnoticeable during the day but light up if car lights hit them at night. You still het the benefit of reflectors without the drawback of the ugly protrusions. I've used black reflective tape on top cases for years for that reason.
