Not sure if anyone else is into 3d printing but i saw these:

Toolbox for batteryless 10" wheel vespas:https://www.printables.com/model/177757-vespa-onboard-toolbox-10-inch-wheels

Rear wheel stand: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/elevador-vespa-clasica

P177X emblem: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/vespa-px-177-emblem-piaggio

Theres lots of random stuff floating around out there. I wouldnt mind printing small things for people.

I tried the toolbox, prints very well and feels really solid. You only need to add some M3 screws.

Did however not fit my PK125XL Elestart(like advertised I suppose) so gave it away.

Engine stand looks really neat, amazing that a printed part can take the strain

Yeah, i was so excited when i saw the toolbox, then i remembered i have a battery. Crying or Very sad emoticon It can always be scaled up/down to fit whatever dimensions you need though.

I might do the engine stand today, and see how it comes out

I don't feel so warm and fuzzy with that stand using the selector box as it's point of contact…

This. So much this.

You have a perfectly good shock mount right there that's designed to take the load of the bike. The selector box is not only not designed to take a load, but what little load it does take is lateral, not vertical.

Hmmm... yeah, nah.

So far not overly impressed with:
Jack stand; for reasons mentioned
Tool box; for not utilising all available space (ie. square peg, round hole)
Then there's this gem!

Not complaints just reality is all.

If you design and make a stand that uses the shock mount you'd get a far different critique.

I designed two badges for my P a while back and had them printed in Alumide with SLS technology...
