What do you guys think of this look?

I want to make my grande look more sporty, and I was youtubing some moped vids and came across this guy showing off his piaggios. His grande looks a bit funny to me but it is sort of the style that I was getting at. I want to remove the rear fender, and put on a magnum like seat/cowling with the brake light and turn signals in the cowling. I don't want to do a top tank, but I was planning on putting cafe bars on it too, and keeping the stock front fender without the mudflap. What do you guys think?

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

Frankly, I think it looks dumb. I don't get how just because it has some performance parts on it that people think it looks cool.

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

Looks like a faggy jamboree of colors to me.

What do you guys think of this look?

Gotta say.....Not so much. Looks kinda dumb. I guess I am kind of a vintage kinda guy.

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

I agree with you ogt92. Thing with me though, I'm taking mine to university, so I don't want to restore it completely, and I'll need it there too so I can't keep it until I finish uni. I agree that this one looks dumb and like Zack described it. I just used it as a bad example I guess lol. What about my description though?

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

thats the vid.

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

I think that is the dopest Grande that I've ever seen...

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

i like it but the polini seat is no longer available, and I think you could find a cooler one anyways. I really want to build a grande stripped down kinda like this, different more cafe style seat. I hate the way grandes look stock. Also I think the look could be improved w/o all the crazy colors moving the upper mounts for the shocks more forward to give it a more aggressive stance, and building a custom birdcage style sub frame.

Looks awesome, but I'd lose the snowflakes fo' sho'.

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

I will be putting cafe bars on my Grande in the next few days...Ill take a picture. If I hate them they are coming of an going on the Benelli.

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

put a head light on it, it will look better.

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

it would be sweet if the handle grips and like maybe tires were like bright green or something.

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

if it's what YOU like, it's your bike.

_different spokes for different folks_ as I always say.

on a side note...

how do you do a frame capture from a vid like that?

Re: What do you guys think of this look?

Well, it depends on what yours looks like now. I think the "Strip it and throw Cafe bars on it" has been over done. A nice looking stock would probably look great with those bars though. I never cared for those polini seats either. If your bike is missing it's covers and looks it's age you might go the custom route but covers and a re upholstered seat might not cost any more.
