I put a mud flap on my GT. You can see some pics of it here http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/vespadon@sbcglobal.net/detail?.dir=/e1a6&.dnm=63b7re2.jpg I covered the red and white with reflective tape, as you can see.

Thanks for that T'f!! Funnily enough,just changed that flap for a plain black one with the Piaggio symbol embossed on it... No pics yet!

Heres my old ET with a long flap.

Scoots,

That was a great looking ET4 and the GTS is looking pretty good too. I remember seeing that photo of your GTS specifically because of the mud flap and thought it looks pretty good on a modern scoot.

Thanks Tim..I'm REALLY wishing I hadn't sold the ET now...
Still,times change,and the mirrors and lights look was a real pain in the "arse" (TM...scoots. ) to keep clean....

I've ALWAYS had a mudflap...kinda my personal trademark.Must take a pic of the one that I melted on the hottest day in England ever,a few years back...

I adapted a mudflap from Headland (a bicycle accessory company) and just bolted it on.

I always have to ask... where do you folks get these things?

If I ask my local Vespa dealer about any little bob or bangle they open up a catalog to order it. I don't get to see/pick among much of a selection.

Great place for ET4 gear...

Also, to prevent the 'burning mudflap' issue like Scoots shows in his pics, what I did was trim the top of the flap to make the whole thing shorter. Note in his pic there is a white strip of plastic with two holes for the license plate bolts, just trim this off and simply cut two new holes. It seemed to work for me.

A bunch of my fellow NYC scooter buds and I took a long ride out of Manhattan upstate to an town called New Paltz. On the ride, 2 hours by car, we hit a bunch of twistys and hills, my mudflap kept getting caught in my tire and burned it up! Simple modification and now my flaps are still flappin!

I think that design are JUST the right size for that! When I put the longer one on,it never happened,and the new one's about 2 inches shorter,so fingers crossed!!

Check out Beedspeed. http://www.beedspeed.com/

I ordered a black and white checked long mudflap from them a couple of weeks ago. It hasn't been delivered yet, but it should be soon.

They have other bits and bobs as well.

Solid Steel! Where've you been?! 8)

Great looking flaps-- I've got the black St. Christopher flap; the Vespa dealer had them, but www.scooterworks.com has the best price I've seen.
