I'll say it again - I feel a 70's revival coming on.
Although, those mudflaps are just too big, by far. Talk about slow you down. ;)

those mudflaps are growing (ha ha) on me, ive got one made for this season with a red fog light on each side!! i bet that we'll see other people doing that as well by half way through 2009, get the trend and dont fanny around with a baby mudflap, go for the floor sweeper/flipover combo!!!! theyre so stupid theyre actually cool!!!

Yes you may be right about the revival but the floor sweepers allways looked best on a 180 or 200 vep not sure it will look as good on any other scooter :P but if you do post a photo

I remember those big mudflaps. One brand was YORK, I didn't releaise it was a brand at first and thought feck want a following for Vespa's in York.
I also remember travelling back from the last oldies at Wigan Casino in about March 81 on my Rally 200 and bumpt into The Burnley and Pendle lot and exchanged patches... they were the days. :) :) Lost the patch and the Rally wish I still had them now.
