Puch Maxi Side bars

I have seen lots of pictures of maxis with the bars that run beside the gas tank removed .Do they provide any structure? Are they mostly cosmetic? I am thinking of taking mine off but I do not want to if my frame would be weakened, i like doubles =)

ONly thing i found them good for was lifting the bike. i took mine off. when or if you do, you will need a spacer or washer for the rear shock. they wont tighten all the way without those bars. not a big deal tho

They are cosmetic.

They're for grabbing the frame to pick the bike up for kickstand use. I wish they would mount on a Tomos, I want to put them on my old Bullet.

skunk is right, they r chrome rails for lifting the mope on the kickstand
