Vespa V50 shock absorber adapter CMD Joe Possum
There Wolfgang aka Crazy Monkey Development was again very creative: The result is a beautiful Vespa V50 shock absorber adapter with the name ” Joe Possum “. The adapter for the rear shock absorber also fits the classic Vespa Smallframe models like V50, 50N, PV125, ET3 …
Why do you need a shock absorber adapter?
When you drive a powerful racing exhaust on a Vespa Smallframe (What is a Vespa Smallframe? ), it is usually the case that the voluminous manifold of the reso exhaust system grinds on the shock absorber. This beautiful adapter, milled out of solid aluminium, shifts the rear shock mount of the rear shock absorber in an adjustment range from 25mm to 45mm to the rear and up to 5mm to the outside.
With this room for manoeuvre you create enough space for powerful resonance exhaust systems whose manifolds would otherwise touch the shock absorber!
Solution: CMD Joe Possum for laying the shock absorber
Actually, much too beautiful to disappear under the frame. The noble adapter not only looks great, it also contains an integrated support on the frame and an optional second attachment point. Thus it is at least as stable as the original mounting.
- Standard height approx. +9mm, for use with standard silent block.
- Adapter made of medium strength aluminium EN AW-6082
- including fixing material: pan-head screw M8 as well as washers and lock washers
