I bought this awesome MMG Top case off Amazon for $52. It has a 29L capacity, so it's pretty roomy inside. I got an additional $30 off for opening up an Amazon Visa, so I actually got it for $22 with free shipping. I mounted it on my Buddy in about 5 minutes. I think it looks pretty nice, and much cheaper than the color keyed trunks.

Unfortunately, after I made this post, I noticed that it's out of stock. I'd still keep watching it to see when it will be available again.

Are you promoting the Kymco cases on the 2 Kymco Like 200i scooters in the photo or the only partially visible MMG case on the Buddy 125? BTW, the Kymco Like 200i forum also seems to favor the MMG case over the stock Kymco top case. Coming from the Kymco folks that's a pretty good endorsement.

Actually, the case on the Buddy in the photo appears completely visible to me.

You're so right. I forgot to scroll over. Embarassed Actually, it is a very nice looking case. I like those big reflectors too.

I've been looking for a new case to replace the current one on my Buddy - I've got one of the Soft Italia color-matched cases, and the lock's acting funny on it (given that I spent $150 on it, I was hoping it'd last longer than two years...) I think that the one you've shared with us might just be what I'm looking for! (And it's awesome to see it on a seafoam Buddy, too, as that's what I've got! Smile )

I just feel bad that I posted this before I realized they were out of stock on Amazon. Hopefully, they'll come back in stock or maybe you can find one on ebay or from another retailer. Good luck!

That's a nice moped you have there too in the garage. Thanks for the tip on the topcase. I'm planning a 2 week trip this summer and am exploring storage options.

Looks like a Puch Maxi Sport. Just can't see enough to see if it's E50 powered or if it's a Mk.II with a ZA50 engine.

I've had a few mopeds myself. They're a blast to ride on. But a bitch to get working right and it takes too much fiddling for my patience level. Rolling Eyes This is why I'm giving up the moped life and bought a roughhouse. Hopefully it'll be just as fun.

^^Actually, it's neither. It's a 1979 Garelli Gran Sport LTD. The identical bike I had in high school back in the late '70's and early '80's.

Took another look and zoomed in. Horizontal reflectors and the brake plate's on the other side of the wheel. D'oh!

I have a moped problem myself. Three Ciaos ('71, '78, '81), two matching '78 Maxi Sports, a '75 Maxi and a '78 Pinto.

Will a 3/4 helmet fit inside?

Absolutely, no problem. That's what I wear.
