Well spotted -but it looks to be a dubious mounting place to me, it really needs to be as far away
from the wheel as possible, if Vespas have taught us anything it is to keep heat away from the rear wheel As that seems to be the only explanation why vespas blow rear tyres so much and J range
machines, are not so reliable either in this regard which seems to stand-out in my memory although, funnily enough I don't remember ever having a rear tyre let go on a series 1, 2 or 3 but I guess I
must have had one do it at some time Rolling Eyes . anyway it looks far too close to the rear wheel for me Crying or Very sad .

I have to agree, getting the rear wheel off for a roadside puncture would be a right pain Shocked It's good to see things out there being made but it looks too much for a small machine Neutral
