I debated it and debated it, but finally did it. Very utilitarian now.

Thanks for showing it!!
I have the larger rack on the back on of one of them.
I had a leather tool pouch where your front rack is, but now seeing yours, I must admit, I like it.
I dont think it will fit with the OEM windshield on though.

Yeah, The guy I bough the scoot from had it almost 5 years, took all the stickers off, put those mirrors on, and rode it only 600 miles.
:shock:

I thought long and hard about keeping them. I even looked them up to see if I could sell them and get some nice, safe, stock mirrors. They're Kuryakyn Skull Mirrors and they run between $115 and $140 new. But the longer I rode with them the more I liked them. There are a number of little set screws you gotta play with to get them adjusted, but once I got it right, they are actually the best mirrors I have on any of my bikes!

I'm sure they put the fear of God into anybody that sees me behind them at a traffic light. (And then I pull around them on the BR) :lol:

Looks good. Do you have a special bag that fits the front rack?

No, that's not it - it's the one on eBay.
I made the guy an offer and he took it. At first I immediately got an email that said he rejected the offer (about a hundred bucks less). Then he contacted me through ebay to see if I was still interested.

The only real downside was that it arrived with no hardware, which had me confused because it fit right up. I used 4 real heavy duty wire tie straps. (I can lift the whole bike with it!)
At first I thought the rack was from a clone. But it finally dawned on me that it was probably made to fit a PS250 with the Japanese rectangle headlight.

The way that is attached it looks like it's going to rub the paint off your scooter in short order .
I used to scratch my head when I looked at that basket wondering how it attached , now I know .
