The Society of Cool!
browsing the internet ive just come across these
theyre magnetic vinyl things that can be removed and tried on various parts of the scooter
i'm not really a fan of targets but my sprint is showing bubbles in the paint in that exact place
in fact that legshield area is the one big letdown on the whole scooter
this would be temporary and cheap fix
the stripes seem to have a quality mettalic look about them so i'm very tempted to try
the dark blue would look good against the light blue of my vespa
what does everybody else think ?
in fact i'm off to buy a set
These would look nice in "Italian" stripes too huh?
Have to ask though, if they are just magnetic is there anything stopping the little tykes in most city centres just taking them off?
Nice scoot by the way mate. Very tastefully done.
They don't LOOK like they're stick ons so maybe the little bastards wouldn't notice.
Got to say when I had a scooter I was always worried that some t*** would have a go at it. It never happened to me but I knew a few blokes that had had their scooters f***ed with. I'm talking about 30 years ago of course.
Nice scooter, Hubert.
they look the poodles pieces ,could you put up the web link,,, would nt worry about kids nicking them , after all this jimmy saville business they wont come near anyone over 40
You can't say that!!! (Wish I'd thought of it ....) (Gem's Jimmy Saville crack.)
I might 'mod up' my fridge with some ;)
now that its arrived theres a couple of problems
depending on paint thickness and whether theres previously been a skim of filler attached to your legshields there may be adhesion problems
the weak magnet may not attach
i thought of sending it all back and asking for a refund but the roundrel does cover up the worst in the way of paint defects on my sprint legshield so i may as well just keep it as it buys time between a full or partial respray
all in all though not too great particularly if you own an older scooter [ like mine which is coming up for 48 years old ! ] where theres likely to be that extra bit paint or filler
one more thing
if that type of person comes along who interferes with things that dont belong to them [ 80% of the population it seems wherever i park my scoot ] they will quickly realise you can have one of the mod roundrels for nowt and lift the it off the scoot and carry it away
so i wouldnt reccommend them
unless youre into expensive fridge magnets
where it did look quite good !
