Vespa mirror with consideration and GO of the style police
Mirrors and Vespa is a tiresome subject. The original MickeyMouse mirrors are not exactly a visual highlight. Functionally, too, they do not always bring the desired benefit. Either the wide scooter driver's cross blocks the view or the powerful motor causes difficulties for the mirrors to hold their position, not to mention the 2-stroke vibrations that are transmitted to the mirror via the long rods. However, mirrors are required by law, with due regard for the lack of consideration, our friends from CMD (Crazy Monkey Development) have now taken on this topic:
CMD MiMo Race - mirror holder for modern mirrors on your Vespa
High quality mirror holder “MiMo Race” from CMD Stainless Steel for all Vespa PK S, PK XL and PX * models.
This innovative mirror holder is attached to the original attachment points (M8 internal thread) attached in the lower part of the handlebar.
