Re: Another Ciao

Here is a bravo from the piaggo mofa freakz Facebook page, I remember seeing a bunch of bikes running springs on the fork tubes like this but I don’t remember where.(edited)

Re: Another Ciao

Hopefully they do some good and not just for looks .

Re: Another Ciao

They would stiffen em up but also tear up the boots over time

Re: Another Ciao

There are so many Vespa posts all of a sudden. It's amazing. I went on my bravo fork here sort of confusing ciao with bravo posts but again I like the external spring idea in addition to whatever the pathetic vespa internals happen to be. But what specific spring is optimal.for either ciao or bravo.

Re: Another Ciao

I had the bike out for the community ride yesterday. The fork springs really helped the feel of the front end, they weren’t too stiff like I was expecting. I was jumping some speed humps and found out I’m a bit too heavy for the stock pedal shaft. It bent pretty good, I’ll have to find something a little stronger to use. The bike is topping out at 42 on flats according my bicycle speedo, but the gps said a top speed of 47 that was probably on one of the long downhill blasts.

Re: Another Ciao

That is awesome Joe! Idk how much I trust the pedal assembly either.

I went to start my bike for the first time last night and had a pedal issue too. Snapped the cotter pin and smashed my foot into the ground hard as fuck! Definatly think something in my foot broke.

Re: Another Ciao

Sucks to hear about your foot hopefully it heals quick, foot injuries are the worst. Profile Bmx cranks use 4130 for the spindle I may look for a rod made from that and mill the flats for the crank arms. Although I doubt the crank arms are much stronger than the shaft.

I got them from Lowe’s they were in the hardware section. I’ll check to see if I still have the package when I get home.

Re: Another Ciao

Here’s the package from the springs I used.
