    They have parts and OEM parts for pretty much have any (Japanese) bike you can think of. I bought my Honda OEM top boxes for my Super Cubs from them before.

    They are the only provider of Smax parts at the moment.

    How would you rate their service?

    They are very good. The order is usually processed same day or next day. Parts arrive within 1 week. They send you an email with a tracking number. I have bought twice from them and I will buy again.

    Excellent. I may give them a shot.

    Ok, so I had the seat installed and the rack and basket as well. I then did an oil change on the white Super Cub (it's got about 550 miles).

    The seat is awesome! I am 6 ft tall and I finally fit properly on the Super Cub. The original seat was too small for me. I now have room to stretch!

    The rear rack was removed:

    A plate was installed so the seat can lock into it:

    The new seat was just bolted on:

    And voila!

    It came with a handle (to put the Super Cub on its center stand) and a "hook" to unlock the seat:

    The Honda basket is awesome!

    I can fit a bag pack in it:

    I am now waiting for the wife to come home (from shopping) so we can go ride together. It's about 4:15pm. I would say we've got another hour before the temperature starts dropping. We made it to 65 degrees today.

    We were only able to do a short ride. The weather changed and it got really cloudy. My wife loves the Vespa Sprint! I think she just likes going faster than me. :lol3

    I had a blast on the Super Cub. It's starting to feel a little stronger. If this was the last bike I could ever ride, I would be happy. This thing puts a grin on my face all the time.

    Just a short, terrible video:

    Sounds as though a winner of a bike just got better for you. The seat and basket look great! Sure hope that Honda brings these here at some point. Congrats-glad to hear you continue to dig the Cub.

    Glad to see you swapped out the seat. Looks good! Nice basket too. That is one of the things I loved about my Passports - the long seat is great for stretching out.

    Thanks guys! The long seat makes all the difference. The basket adds weight to the front and makes it more stable in the turns. I was hauling ass in the hills (well, for a Super Cub anyway :lol3).

    Beautiful day today in San Antonio. Not sure what the high was but I would guess it was just a tad over 70.

    We did lots of riding. We went out for lunch to Burger Fi. I just have a thing for their burgers. We then went through the city streets. My wife got a lot of attention on the Sprint.

    In that last shot, the new Vespa looks a lot bigger than your Cub. Does it seem that way in person?

    Love the full-length seat.
    I like how the basket says Honda on the front :clap

    I must have missed the post where your wife got the Vespa. You have to admit the front rim on her bike is good looking!

    The basket is a genuine Honda part. I ordered it from Japan.

    Yes it is.:lol3

    No, I'm guessing it's some kind of lens compression.
