Found a place right around the corner from me that does vintage vinyl upholster. I also took the boards advice and asked them to use the back panel with the Piaggio logo(also I save the strap and redid the clasps) .

I think I going to paint my rim's. Would Krylon aluminum work?

Is there a old thread for painting rims here?

Those rims aren't aluminum. Just clean them up really good, prime them and paint them with regular spray paint. The fancier option would be to powder coat them. It will last longer.

Yeah ... a nice silverish ( well, they call it "aluminum" - the shade ) powdercoat is the best option.... and powder coating is pretty damn cheap, too.

Ideally, rims should be the same shade as your fork... if you're going to get anal about it.
