Here´s mine. I ordered a tartan seat cover some weeks ago, expect it to arrive soon.
Wating for someone smart to come up with an idea how to get the original seat further back.

Mike,
I talked with the Vespa dealer in Atlanta about it, and they told me they knew of someone that had shimmed the hinge to tilt it back slightly. That being said, I was afraid of breaking the seat frame, and simply replaced the seat with a GTS seat. I may experiment with it a little over the winter.
Cheers!

I´ve tried to raise the front as many others have but I don´t know if that would get the same result. I think it would be optimal to sit at least five incher further back but I´m also afraid to break the frame.
Anyway thanks for the tip and please post if you make any progress.
Cheers!
Mike.

These are from a place by my work and I thought it was cool how the barn in the background kind of matched my GTV in the light. I don't like the quality(they were taken with my gf's point and click) so I really want to get some with my 35mm.

That's a nice backrest, Pepy27. I've got a Cuppini one on the way too, but it's shaped differently. I'm also going to have the pad re-done to match my seat, but that might be a ways off.

I got lucky with the back pad.
The company i used to recover a GTS seat are only a couple of miles from my house. They still had the off cuts from when the seat was done.
Made it from scratch for me for £20. 8)

Thanks, Pepy! It may get replaced by a bag later this year, but it's nicely useful for now.

Crappy finger-in-the-way cel phone pic, but I now have more bars in more places:


I see you have the SX Pack Rest, Nick. How's that working for you? Does it go well on the rear rack, too?

I have both the rear-seat pack (visible in my current avatar) and the cylindrical rear-rack pack. Both work well. The seat pack seems a newer design, with newer materials (better arrangement of resin composite clips and shoulder strap). It isn't so self-consciously retro-designed as the cylinder pack is, and has none of the (fake?) leather straps; they are a bit clunky but work OK, but aren't high-quality. I haven't tried the seat pack on the rear rack. It attaches better on the seat by putting its rear strap around the rear rack rather than under the seat, which makes closing the seat difficult. YMMV of course.

Suggested design changes: on the rain covers: make them bright yellow (they're black) and use non-stretch cord rather than elastic. (they already have cord locks). The cylinder might could be several inches broader as well, without being too wide for a scooter. The zippers on the external pockets are a bit tight in the curves of their pockets; the pockets could be considerably bigger, or could be eliminated if the pack were wider.

They don't lock, or lock onto the bike, so they are not secure; but you know that up front. One of those thin Kryptonite locking cables could be used to deter casual thieves. I've used each pack separately for overnight trips, and they are both sufficient for that. The two together along with a tent and sleeping bag - and you'd be good to go on a fun longer trip.

The seat pack provides a very useful (for me) back rest that keeps my posture in better alignment, but if you're my height (5'10") or taller you might feel cramped with it in place. It pokes me upright, which is good. The GTV is famous/notorious for having a seat you can't slide back on easily if you're taller or want varied positions. This pack narrows your available placement slightly, but I find it works well for me because of my crankety back. YMMV on that one, too. I find I can slide back a bit without the seat pack in place, and come spring I plan to try raising the pommel end of the seat - there's a thread here somewhere on that. Reportedly this adds a useful bit of distance to the handlebars.

Overall I'm pleased with both packs, and I've gotten lots of positive comments on their spiffy appearance.

Absolutely lovely, Kra!

You have almost the exact setup I would like. I prefer the front rack that you have, and the legshield crashbars. The legshield mirrors are an excellent touch!

Are those the replacement Vespa fake-leather grips? Awesome.

They actually sit a little different what I can remember. I liked the GTV but it just didn't feel right. too short or something. But they ALL are really cool!

There are only a few differences between the GTS and the GTV.

--The headlight is on the front fender.
--The headset is smaller, and more retro.
--The handlebars are exposed chrome.
--It comes with a small flyscreen.
--The seat is a brown leather split seat.
--The US models come with chrome wheels.

Other than that, everything else is the same between the two bikes, including the engine. There is also a special edition called the GT60, with a special gray paint, and a black leather seat. The "regular" GTVs have been availible in Avio Gray (discontinued now), Portofino Green, and this Siena Ivory you see here.

Bimo: Nice chrome engine case! And I've never seen checkers on a GTV before. Neat!

Love the front crash bars (sadly no longer available in the USA) and the fender trim. I am surprised that you were able to keep the reflectors on AND fit the chrome fender trim -- it looks a bit too tight on my GTV. Did you move the stock reflectors or add your own after the fact?
