Cub in Shinjuku: Vespa Face

Very cool pic. I thought you had a legshield for your cub?

Yes, I do have the leg guard. It's in brand new condition, so I had stored it for the winter weather which can be harsh for its acid rain here in Asia. I got the one you see in this pic from a small dealer who was throwing it out. It had a crack, which was fine, since I had intended to cut it down like you see here anyway.

I had wanted to make the cub look a little more sporty than stock, without making it look like it was covered with parts from Pep Boys ;) I wanted to give the bike a factory rally appeal, keeping it looking stock and original.

Recently, I installed a "center pack" as it's called here. It's an aftermarket item made in Korea for Super Cubs. Essentially, it's a storage trunk. It can fit a small helmet, groceries, maps, gloves, etc. I saw one online, and liked the look. So, I bought one, painted it and enjoy the difference it makes. You can see pics of it here.
