Buddy 150 Pamplona

PostPosted: Thu Jan 14, 2016 6:16 am    Post subject: Pamplona red paint code for Buddy 150? Reply with quote

A 2009 Buddy 150 with only 1500 miles found its way into our garage last week. Such a nice little scooter!

A top case would be nice, but I can't find one anywhere, in any brand, painted Pamplona red. It appears that my only options are to either use a black one (which would substantially change the look, in my opinion) or get some Pamplona red and paint one myself. It's possible to get automotive paint loaded in a spray can if you can provide the paint code. Anyone here happen to know what it is?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Scooterworks is replacing the Soft Italia color matched top cases with another brand, they told me an ETA of as early as next week. Wait a little bit and you should be able to get one.

That's great! There's no particular rush, so a few weeks would be no problem. Thanks for the info.

You will also find that most auto paint shops can give you matching paint by doing a color scan of a painted part of your scooter. Some shops are equipped to provide you a spray can(s) if you wish.

Or should I wait until they get the new brand? The 30%-off Italia cases are being liquidated. The replacements will likely cost more, but these are not hugely expensive items so if they're substantially better...

I hope the replacements don't cost more, they are already pretty pricey as is...

The replacements will actually cost less, I haven't seen one so I'm unsure of the quality or even the manufacturer. We've been having problems getting the soft italias for quite a while now so I assume enough was enough for Scooterworks. I'd get the soft italia while you can!

I guess it's a matter of perspective, but $112 including mount kit and shipping for a 35-liter top box painted to match my wife's scooter doesn't seem too bad to me. If she thinks it makes her scooter look cuter, it's well worth it!

edit: I put in the order with Scooterworks. I hope they still have one in Pamplona. Thanks again for the hot tip on finding one.
