Swing arm bearing axle brake pad bolt Vespa Largefram Wideframe BGM4311 BGM4310

HQ suspension components made in Germany by BGM PRO for Vespa Wideframe / Largeframe

Piaggio is known to many 'only' as the world's largest scooter manufacturer. The Vespa, as Piaggio's most outstanding brand, has had a lasting impact on the image of the Pontedera-based company. Originally, however, Piaggio also built railway wagons, ships and very successful aircraft engines (around 1940, double star 18-cylinder P.XV with multi-stage turbocharging, 1500hp takeoff power) as well as very innovative aircraft (1938, P.111 with pressurized cabin for a service ceiling of 12000m !) produced. The Piaggio Aerospace Group continues to build innovative aircraft such as the P180 Avanti on the beautiful Italian Riviera. The fastest twin turbo prop machine in the world with a cruising speed of 600km/h.


What does all this have to do with chassis parts for old Vespa scooters? Piaggio has always been high tech. You often hear disrespectful things like, 'the Italians just took what was lying in the corner'. Piaggio's greatest achievement, however, is the one that is almost completely unnoticed: the highest possible technical simplification with maximum efficiency, stability and the best economy. One of Piaggio's secrets, why the group is so successful to this day. Many things about Vespa scooters are brilliant technical solutions precisely because they are so simple. However, the structural performance behind it is usually significantly higher than with a more complex solution. The one-sided front wheel suspension, as used in a simple form on the Piaggio P148/149 training aircraft, is a good example of this.


The one-sided wheel suspension enables quick wheel removal, has fewer parts than a two-sided wheel control and is also designed to be so stable that even generations later can continue to use the material and also often put much more stress on it than originally intended. Who would have thought during the construction of the front swing arm in Piaggio's engineering office that 60 years later(!) people would still be driving around twice as fast with this material and sometimes with 5-6 times the engine power? It's hard to imagine that someone will be driving around with today's Vespa GTS300 in 60 years with 100 hp and 240 km/h, isn't it? The fact that all of this works wonderfully is thanks to the technical foresight of the Piaggio designers, who still worked with the product quality standards of the time and multiple guarantees with regard to the component dimensions. So the old original Piaggio parts are still a 'bench' in terms of dimensional accuracy and resilience (a fact that unfortunately can no longer be fully applied to today's original parts).


But what to do if the original part is damaged, worn out or even missing? Clear case, a new part is needed. However, many parts for early Vespa models are no longer available from Piaggio. Fortunately, the Vespa fever is a worldwide phenomenon and therefore the sources for spare parts are limitless in the best sense of the word. A fact that also raises problems at the same time... True to the motto 'many cooks spoil the broth', the qualitative selection of a product is also blessed with many pitfalls. Regardless of whether a repro component comes from Italy, the Far East or Germany, the quality has to be right.
However, some parts are often only available from a single source and then it's 'take it or leave it'? Shouldn't you offer a product at all because it doesn't quite match the quality of the original? Or do you sell it and point it out, at the risk that the pointer will not be noticed and a bad product review will follow?
A situation that is unsatisfactory for all parties. This also applies to the highly stressed components on the old Vespa steering tubes and swing arm.


Our solution: We analyse, measure and draw new components exactly according to the original Piaggio model and have them precisely manufactured in Germany by a specialized company. In doing so, we go one step further than Piaggio did back then. Not only do we use higher quality material, we also have it heat treated...

Swing arm bearing axle brake pad bolt Vespa Largefram Wideframe BGM4311 BGM4310

SWINGARM PIVOT (BGM4310 for Vespa Wideframe/Largeframe 1953-1962)

Suitable for Vespa Wideframe VM, VN, VL, VB, GS 150 (VS1-5T), Largeframe VNA, VNB1-4, VNB5T (-026920), VBA, VBB1T, VBB2T (-212455), Vespa GL (VLA1T, -067468)

A difficult word to read and yet so important. This component connects the steel steering tube (also known as the head tube or fork) with the aluminum swing arm. The latter guides the wheel and also connects the damping/suspension to the steering tube. Any wheel force, any steering movement, any up and down movement of the wheel is transmitted via this axle.
In order to not only do justice to all of this, but also to take care of today's demands, we have the BGM PRO swing arm bearing axles made of high-strength premium steel (1.4112 alternative designation X90CrMoV18). We attach great importance to precise compliance with dimensional accuracy. The axes are precision turned to a surface finish of 0.2-0.4RA:

The material quality, surface and corrosion resistance would already make the axle stand out from any mass-produced product and even from an original Piaggio part.
However, we also have the axles plasma-nitrided. This gives the axles a harder surface and the bearing points will certainly not run in over the life of the scooter. The nitration also gives them their characteristic matt coloring (however, this can also be polished away). In summary, the BGM PRO swing arm bearing axles are without exaggeration the best on the market and, with their high quality, offer great security, especially for performance-enhanced vehicles.
The dynamic loads on a vehicle often do not increase linearly with speed, but often even quadratically. If you drive a vehicle twice as fast as originally intended by the manufacturer, you can generate loads that are four times as high. Another reason to be on the safe side with the BGM PRO swingarm bearing axle.

BRAKE PAD BOLT (BGM4311 for Vespa Wideframe/Largeframe 1949-1962)

Suitable for Vespa Wideframe V1, V11-15, V30-33, VM, VN, VL, VB, GS 150 (VS1-5T), Largeframe VNA, VNB1-4, VNB5T (-026920), VBA, VBB1T, VBB2T (-212455), Vespa GL (VLA1T, -067468)

What sounds relatively harmless here is also a component that deserves closer attention. The pad bolt is much more than its name would suggest. It forms the support for the chassis spring on the swing arm. Where relatively soft springs were used at the factory, today there are taut sport springs and greatly increased speeds as well as often one or the other stunt, such as riding on the rear wheel. The often rough touchdown of the front wheel after such a wheelie makes it difficult for the brake pad bolt. It is not particularly large ex works, but it has a grease nipple. This can be used to regularly lubricate the highly stressed point between the spring retainer and the brake pad bolt. This should also be done as far as possible, but how many people with such vehicles do you know who even have a grease gun that is necessary for such purposes?
That is why the same effort was put into this as with the swingarm bearing axle; Extremely high-quality material whose surface has been further refined to be even more durable than the original component. In the case of the bolts for the later models with clamping plates (from around 1969) we have also eliminated another annoyance of many replica bolts; The lack of dimensional accuracy with regard to the length of the bolts and the inappropriate shape of the recess in the clamping plate. Many bolts are often a few tenths of a millimeter too long or short. This is solved once and for all with the BGM PRO brake pad bolt:

This is always the right length*. Actually everything is a matter of course, but in the case of cheap reproductions, they go over the edge for cost reasons. Like the swingarm bearing axle, the brake pad bolt is also finely turned from high-strength premium steel (1.4112 alternative designation X90CrMoV18) and then plasma-nitrided. With these products, we want to give a new face to the sometimes overused phrase 'Made in Germany'. That this is not possible at prices like in the Far East can certainly be understood. In return, we can offer a product that is unique and of extremely high quality, and we are sure that every customer will enjoy it as much as we do.

*NOTE: Spanish (Motovespa) and French (ACMA) vehicles have a slightly different length measurement at the pad stud. Here the fastening nut can be lined with an M8x1mm washer to guarantee a perfect frictional connection.


The swing arm pivot and brake pad bolts for the later models (Largeframe 1963-1979) will follow in the coming weeks!

bgm PRO touring CDI for IDM retrofit ignitions

--Original optics in conjunction with a optimized ignition curve for Vespa and Lambretta touring engines--

Our solution for IDM CDIs in touring engines

Use all IDM based ignitions (Vespatronic, Malossi VesPower, Polini IDM, Varitronic, Pinasco Flytech, Parmakit etc.) the same CDI.

The ignition curve of this CDI is based on high performance engines with a late use of power and high speeds designed.
On touring engines, with an early and high torque, this ignition curve is rather counterproductive. Here it often leads to engine jerks in the partial load range due to an ignition point that is too early for the low engine speed.

However, due to the large adjustment range (8 °) of the original CDI, the ignition point must be selected early. Otherwise, the performance in the upper speed range suffers, as the CDI already reduces the ignition point significantly here. We have addressed this problem and a solution developed:


Advantages of our bgm PRO CDI for IDM in tour setup

In bgm PRO CDI has a modified, optimized ignition curve. It offers high-torque touring engines that have a similar power / torque curve as an original engine, ideal working conditions. The adjustment of the ignition point is significantly less, the engine runs quieter and smoother and also develops more efficient, especially in the area above the peak performance (Overrev). As a result, you have an engine that much more tour-friendly is and usually something faster Is on the way.

  • Plug & Play
  • for Vespa & Lambretta
  • replaces the original IDM CDI
  • fits on the original mounting brackets from PK & PX
  • Tour-optimized ignition curve
  • no partial load jerking
  • higher performance
  • original optics
  • screw-in ignition cable

More efficient

Modern technology in a classic look

The technology of the bgm PRO CDI is housed in the vehicle-specific ignition coil housing from the time it was built. This means that the beautiful old look for classic Vespa and Lambretta is retained despite modern technology.
Compared to an original IDM CDI, that is Ignition cable can be screwed in. Ideal if the CDI should be positioned differently or simply the ignition cable should be replaced.


The perfect addition to high-torque tuning motors that are supposed to get even better.

The idea with the castor oil

Castrol was founded by Charles "Cheers" Wakefield under the name "CC Wakefield & Company". In 1899, Wakefield left his job at Vacuum Oil to start his own business selling lubricants for railways and heavy machinery.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Charles developed an interest in two new motorized vehicles: the automobile and the airplane. His company started developing oils for the new engines. These oils had to be thin enough for a cold start and at the same time thick enough to work at high temperatures. The company's researchers found that the addition of Castor oil a vegetable oil made from castor seeds. They called the new product " Castrol ". 1919 used John Alcock and Arthur Brown Castrol oil on the first non-stop transatlantic flight in history.

Heiko's idea with the Castrol sponsorship & fast too slow

CC Wakefield not only invented a new type of motor oil, but also a new way of attracting potential customers to its product: the sponsorship. The name Castrol appeared in flight competitions, car races, and speed record attempts Banners and flags.

Over time, the brand name of the motor oil has become far better known than that of the company's founder / company. This fact led to the renaming of "CC Wakefield & Company" in 1960 castrol ltd

I have been driving Vespa and Lambretta for over 32 years. It all started with a red Vespa PK50S that, bought used, was waiting for my driver's license in my parents' garage. But that was me fast too slow.  The first tuning measure was to mount an expensive 50km / h exhaust. But it didn't do that much, the moped boys were still flying past me to the right and left. So it was sold and I was interested in a black PX 80 Lusso, which was very expensive in insurance at the time. During the test drive, the gears have always been blown out. But I was happy to have my mother ready to buy me this scooter ... also, my father was on a business trip and didn't know anything about the new “80s”. So: now or never! So the scooter was bought with this “little hidden flaw”.

Scootershop, Scootering & Mods, Scooterboys and Scooter Scene

We all know what was wrong with the engine: the reason for the uncontrolled gear changes was the worn “round” gearshift cross. The next Vespa dealer wanted 700 DM for the change, but that was no longer in the budget when I sent my scooter update. I got in contact with other scooter riders.

One of them was still on the skateboard as a skater last week and now suddenly motorized on a brand new Vespa PX 80 Lusso. A month later I met him again, there he was sitting in a suit and polished leather shoes on his Vespa, which was now plastered with mirrors and chrome parts. The next time I met him, half was missing on his scooter and on his head too. Instead of fine leather shoes and a suit, he now wore red boots up to his knees, camouflage pants and a bomber jacket. All that was left of his “popper mane” on his head was a small curl of hair that fluttered listlessly in his face after he took off his helmet. Somewhat irritated, I asked him if he had an accident with the scooter and why he looks so strange. He said he was now a Scooterboy and the scooter was a CutDown!

He had probably discovered her before, she was new to me at the time: the MOTORETTA, the Scootermag and still in black and white. And so the evil took its course. Now the 80s became somehow for me too fast too slow, Schoolmates with DT, RD, MBX & Co and even some mopeds, were faster than me. So if I change the gearshift cross anyway and remove and dismantle the engine, I could make the box a little faster ... In the meantime, I had that too ROLLERSHOP catalog and the SCOOTERING discovered.

The custom paintwork from the glossy magazines fascinated me so much that I sat down in my 80s “children's room” and dreamed of great paintwork and scribbled a few of them on paper. Yes, laugh, these are my collected works:

Castrol sponsorship with the “Castrol Vespa Racer”

Somehow my dreams about custom paintwork didn't come true, so I later took the initiative and asked Castrol to sponsor it. To be honest, I'm a bit uncomfortable right now: I was quite sure that I did it at the age of 16. According to the date of the letter to Castrol, which I found in my “Scooter Scene box”, I was a bit older and already doing community service at the time.

Unfortunately I have the drafts of my "Castrol Racer”With 20 HP and targeted 130-140km / h no longer. I had enclosed the drawings with the letter to Castrol, Motorsport Department. From the letter I found this test print with corrections. But I definitely didn't write to UHU and NUTELLA, MÜHLEN KÖLSCH? Perhaps! I do not know anymore…

But the man from Castrol was very nice, invited me to the IFMA in Cologne and after a short chat in the Castrol truck gave me a few Castrol stickers.

If anyone from Castrol reads this: my offer is still available! This is, for example, my Augsburg Vespa T4:

It is the foundation of any solid Vespa engine tuning. The CNC-manufactured clutch basket has excellent concentricity and extremely high torsional rigidity. The Vespa clutch thus offers perfect coupling behavior with a clearly defined grinding point and clean separation of the clutch linings.

It is suitable for that Touring riderwho values ​​high quality, as well as ambitious ones Racer, the one extremely resilient and stable coupling .

Vespa Wideframe Tuning


The latest generation of Superstrong clutches now has an innovative new technology: Ultralube.
Ultralube pumps (through precisely defined bores and centrifugal force) transmission oil both into the highly stressed hub profile (between clutch basket and clutch hub) and onto the clutch linings themselves.
This in the Vespa area unique technology makes the legendary Superstrong 2.0 clutch even more stable than it already is. A clutch designed to last.


The ready-to-install clutch is designed for a power range up to approx. 20PS / 22Nm by means of the mounted clutch springs. Reinforced springs (sold separately, bgm PRO XXL Reinforced clutch spring) expand the performance range of the clutch to over 40 hp. It is still easy to operate.


The scope of delivery includes the complete ready-to-install clutch with bgm PRO Cosa clutch facings and ten BGM PRO XL springs. A new O-ring for the clutch cover and a new crescent wedge are also included.


We also recommend a low-alloy gear oil of classes API GL3 / GL4 for high-performance engines in order to prevent the clutch from slipping even under extreme loads. This also applies to our bgm Superstrong couplings. The old engine oil specification SAE30 corresponds to today's transmission oil specification SAE 85W / 90. We recommend this as a lubricant bgm PRO Street gear oil (BGM2025, corresponds to specification API GL-3).

Vespa oil seals bgm PRO

bgm PRO shaft seals made of high-quality and ethanol-resistant (E10) FKM / Viton® *

New: now also for Vespa Wideframe, GS3, Faro Basso etc .: We have ours Oil seal portfolio expanded with modern Simmerrings from bgm and can now be used for almost every classic Vespa Wave doctrines made of FKM / Viton® offer:


In bgm PRO Simmerrings have the perfect dimensions that guarantee easy installation, optimal function and a long service life. The large shaft seal on the clutch side, for example on old Vespas, has bgm PRO over a height of 7 mm, instead of the usual ones from other manufacturers 6,5 mm.
This is how the bgm PRO Simmer ring on the original factory information from Piaggio. If you have ever taken apart an old and original Vespa engine, you may have noticed that a large one comes from the factory Shaft seal was installed with a height of 7mm.


In old engines, the crankshaft bearings are 'floating'. This means that the bearing is not fixed and it can be moved axially (horizontally laterally) in the motor housing. This shift takes place, for example, under load due to the axial force of the helically toothed primary drive. If the crankshaft shifts too much, this can of course have an effect on the ignition and also on the function of the clutch. The aim should therefore be to have as little unnecessary play as possible.

The stop and thus the play of this floating bearing are only determined by the shaft sealing rings in the Vespa engines. The tolerances in the old motors are large and, for example, we also use thicker housing seals today, so 7mm Simmerrings make sense!


The material is FKM (fluorocarbon rubber) extremely resistant to

  • heat
  • Friction and
  • Fuel type
  • ethanol

Even super petrol fuel E5 in Germany currently has up to 5% ethanol admixture, with E10 even up to 10%, and the trend is rising. And did you know that this can vary from country to country? Possibly. Have you ever noticed in France, for example, that your engine runs differently? In other countries, the ethanol / alcohol content can be significantly higher.

A conventional shaft sealing ring cannot withstand this increasing ethanol admixture and can, for example, swell or soften on contact with fuels containing ethanol.
In bgm PRO In contrast, FKM / Viton® shaft seals offer one permanent protection. In addition, our Simmering with Viton® is compared to the conventional (blue) NBR shaft seals twice as temperature resistant. Further advantages of these modern shaft seals:

  • extremely gas impermeable
  • and very resistant to aging



OK, so our Simmerrings from bgm have

  1. optimal dimensions and
  2. most modern materials

but for what are they now suitable?

A, with bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft sealing rings, equipped motor can also be used in motors with E10 fuel (10% alcohol) operate.
The modern and high-quality brown Viton® * sealing material is

  • permanently resistant to ethanol / alcohol and
  • also for engines with high temperature load
  • and high speeds suitable.

bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals are therefore suitable for all engines! Just play it safe and install the modern Simmerrings right away. Whether for an original engine, mild tuning or extreme tuning and motorsport!

For reasons of environmental protection and in favor of maximum flexibility of the sealing lip, we deliberately refrain from additionally applying PTFE / Teflon® * to the sealing lip.


In bgm PRO Shaft sealing rings offer a double seal as an additional feature:

All shaft seals that seal to the outside, to the atmosphere, have a so-called Dust lip. This is positioned and held in front of the actual sealing lip

  • Dust,
  • Dirt and
  • Moisture away.

This further increases the very good stability.


The bgm PRO Shaft sealing ring set improves the installation clearance and, thanks to the excellent modern materials FKM / Viton®, offers an extremely long service life, combined with perfect fuel compatibility: it is even E10-resistant! The Simmerrings replace the old ones and of course fit without modifications.

Tip: We offer the Simmerrings individually as well as in a set and in a set with bearings!

Vespa shock absorber bgm PRO SC COMPETITION shock absorber for Vespa oldies

bgm PRO SC Competition shock absorber

The bgm PRO SC Competition shock absorber is a further development of the successful BGM PRO F16 Sport series. Visually, the Competition series differs through the external expansion tank. This allows a larger compensation volume compared to the sports damper better responsiveness. At the same time the effective adjustment range of the damping has been increased.


Compared to the sport damper, the competition damper has a different basic set-up. This makes it very suitable for use with stiff sport springs such as the new bgm PRO spring.

The setting of rebound and compression levels also counteract the concept-typical brake nod, but also effectively counteract the rapid rebound on short bumps. This means that the competition damper offers a lot of reserves even in powerful vehicles. The wide range of chassis tuning naturally also enables use with a standard spring, which means that comfortable driving is still possible with a soft damper adjustment.



Thanks to the optimized installation dimension of 165mm, the damper also fits all 8-inch models without any problems, without preloading the spring or changing the angle of the swing arm. When installed, the external expansion tank is largely covered by the fender, which means that the original look of the front of the vehicle is retained. As with the F16 Sport series, the damper body is made of hard anodized aluminum. The damper is available in black and silver.


We also offer the bgm competition damper in set with the bgm coil spring that goes perfectly with the reinforced shock absorber!

Even that Scootering magazine are our new ones bgm tires not escaped. In the current issue you can find a nice report on our classic tires, here they are compared with the legendary MICHELIN ACS, and justifiably so.

bgm Classic tires Michelin ACS



bgm has launched a new tire that is a look back at the old days of scooter riding, but with modern technology. Simply referred to as Classic, the tread pattern is similar to that of the Michelin ACS. For those who can't remember: the ACS was one of the best tread patterns ever designed for the scooter and offers good handling characteristics not only on dry, but also on wet roads. For years it was standard equipment on both the Vespa and the Lambretta. Even today, original copies of the ACS can fetch huge sums of money as owners want that retro look.

Michelin destroyed the molds as early as the late 1980s and so it was banned in the history books. Fortunately, BGM brought them back to life with the company's new design. The Classic has a speed of up to 150kmh / 93mph which is very impressive. This is due to a reinforced carcass that not only improves stability at high speed but also when cornering. Cornering is even more supported by the V-shape of the pro? Le compared to the U-shape, which enables more surface contact as the lean angle is increased. Using a revised blend, they're super grippy in all conditions. That means not only that owners of standard machines who want the classic tire look can use the bene? T, but also those with tuned engines. The Classic is made in Germany and is available in the traditional size 3.50-10. These tires are now sold in the UK and many dealers already have them in stock.

classic bag as an alternative to the top case

New Moto Nostra Vintage bags and cases in the delivery program

Moto Nostra has revised its line of popular Moto Nostra case bags and expanded them to include more practical bags.
From now on, all bags and cases have a waxed surface.
The products available in the three basic colors beige, brown or black are now available as:

  • Case bag for luggage racks with 10 liters of storage volume
  • Case bag for luggage racks with 35 liters of storage volume
  • Bag to hang on the luggage compartment flap, with mobile phone or cup holder
  • Bag for spare wheel for classic Vespa / Lambretta, with mobile phone (up to 6,2 ″) or cup holder

What all suitcases / bags have in common is that they can be attached to the vehicle easily, quickly and safely, but can also be carried with you as an option.


CASE 10 liters / 35 liters

The cases have a comfortable handle and live up to their name.
They can be taken to a hotel quickly and easily on a tour, for example.
This is a great advantage compared to a permanently installed topcase and also significantly more individual.
This increases the mobility of the scooter enormously with little effort and you can enjoy twice as much more storage space and a nicer look.


The pockets for the luggage compartment flap and the spare wheel also have a double function.
Here, too, a lot of storage space and useful gadgets such as the cell phone (up to 6,2 ″) / beverage can holder are perfectly combined with a successful design.
So you always have all valuables and means of communication on the vehicle always at hand in a central location.
Due to their visual quality, the bags (with the carrying strap included in the scope of delivery) can be wonderfully taken with you for a stroll into the city.
So you don't have to worry about valuables left in the vehicle.

The completely revised new edition offers as a directly recognizable innovation a waxed surface, as we know it from traditional British wax jackets, for example.
The result is a great vintage surface that is water-repellent and very durable.
A nice feature of the wax is the 'used look' that develops over time.
However, this can be revised again at any time with a commercially available hair dryer and the case can be returned to its new condition.
To do this, the wax is briefly heated with a hairdryer and all traces on the wax surface disappear as if by magic.
The whole thing in a chic vintage design that goes perfectly with the scooter. Available in the Vespa Shop in beige, brown or black.

Retro topcase case 2.0

Who does not know that? To stow a lot of small items but no space in the overhead compartment because the helmet should be in there or tools and the oil supply have already made themselves wide.
The conventional solution: a top case in a classic hard shell.
This is practical, but usually over the target and also not always the most elegant choice visually.

The Moto Nostra solution is an alternative to the top case
A bag in the design of a traditional roll bag (as it is often used for tools, for example) with the function and handling of a topcase / suitcase.

Case bag for luggage racks with 35 liters of storage volume

The case is weatherproof and dimensionally stable. This makes it perfect as storage space for shopping, a full-face helmet (or two open face helmets) or other travel items.
It is divided into a large central main compartment and two side compartments, which can be further folded out if necessary.
The central main compartment is closed with its own inner lid with Velcro and zip.
Above this, the outer cover, with its practical handle, forms a double safeguard.
A leather strap is attached to the left and right, which ends in (hidden) practical snap fasteners.
Together with a central combination lock, the case is very well secured but can still be opened quickly.

classic bag as an alternative to the top case

  • Bag material: waxed canvas (water-repellent)
  • Leather straps with brass buckles and rivets
  • Practical click fasteners hidden underneath
  • Snap lock with numeric code (code can be set by yourself)
  • Nice Moto Nostra lettering in a vintage look
  • Side pockets with zip
  • Including rain cover
  • With handle
  • Retro / vintage look
  • Mounting by means of straps (part of the bag) on ​​the luggage rack / luggage rack

The combination lock is set to the code '00' at the factory, which can of course be customized.
Two storage compartments that can be folded out on the side offer additional storage space if required and are quickly accessible with a zip.

The visually attractive, adjustable leather straps are a clever gimmick.
If the shopping is bigger, the straps can be adjusted like a backpack and the storage volume can be temporarily increased significantly.

Case bag for luggage racks with 10 liters of storage volume

As a supplement or smaller version of the large 35 liter version, Moto Nostra offers a version with a 10 liter volume.
This has the same properties as the large version, but with its approx. Ø20cm diameter it also fits easily on a front luggage rack.
So you can wonderfully combine a two-person combination of the two versions on one vehicle.
Alternatively, of course, the small version can also be used on the rear luggage rack if not so much storage space is required.

Bag to hang on the luggage compartment flap, with mobile phone or cup holder

Another new item in the Moto Nostra delivery program is the extremely practical curtain bag for the luggage compartment flap of Vespa PX, GTS and the like.
The bag is simply attached to the luggage compartment flap with the Velcro mounting straps and you have a perfect stowage option for many utensils that you would like to have direct access to in no time at all. Be it tools, the mobile phone, papers, the travel card, power bank or just a drink, the Moto Nostra bag offers adequate storage space for all of this. Thanks to the quick and easy assembly, the bag can be removed just as quickly and taken with the shoulder strap just as easily as a handbag.
This means that no valuables remain on the vehicle and everything important is safely and centrally stowed in one place.

Bag Ø23cm with mobile phone or cup holder for spare wheel with 10 inches (classic Vespa / Lambretta)

The bag for the spare wheel is a nice variant for classic Vespa / Lambrettar scooters that have a spare wheel in the leg shield / passage.
Here the bag is placed in the center of the rim and also fastened with a Velcro mounting strap. The dimensions of the bag fit perfectly into 10 inch rims.
Thus the bag is suitable for e.g. Vespa V50 / 50N, V90, 90 Racer, ET3, PV125, Sprint, GT, GTR, Lambretta LI / GP / DL
