Why do you need a shock absorber adapter?
When you're on a Vespa Smallframe (What is a Vespa Smallframe?) drives a powerful racing exhaust, it is usually the case that the voluminous manifold of the Reso exhaust system rubs against the shock absorber. This beautiful adapter, milled from solid aluminum, moves the shock absorber attachment of the rear shock absorber in an adjustment range of 25mm to 45mm to the rear and up to 5mm to the outside.
This leeway creates enough space for powerful resonance exhaust systems whose manifolds would otherwise touch the shock absorber!
Solution: CMD Joe Possum to relocate the shock absorber
Actually much too beautiful to disappear under the frame. The noble adapter not only looks great, it also contains an integrated support on the frame and an optional second attachment point. Thus it is at least as stable as the original assembly.
