There are not really any great solutions and depending what country/state you are in, the law is often that passengers must be able to reach the footrests to ride on the back. There are a few modifications where wooden blocks are attached to the flip out rests but these only gain you a couple of inches which I doubt is enough.

Another option is to just forget the feet and if you wear a grab handle harness around your waist your son can get a very good grip on that.

Best solution is to wait until your son is old enough (probably not until is is at least 9 or 10). Have a look on for more ideas.

SOURCE: Vespa Scooter: puting brand new wheel and tyres together ,vespa 3...

Semi inflate the inner tube a little as this helps prevent it getting nipped between the two sides of the wheel on assembly. And a bit of grease on the wheel halves helps the tyre to slide into the bead better.
Or do what I and a lot of scooterists are doing..............scrapping the old half & half steel wheels and replacing them with alloy tubeless ones from SIP Scooters. Available in polished alloy or matt black with polished rim. They look good, don't rust and are lighter but the real improvement is that they are far less prone to blow-outs, punctures and rapid deflation all of which increase the safety tenfold. They cost around £50 - £60 each but you can't put a price on safety.

2011 Vespa GTS 300 rear brakes failed again

Hi, Roger the brake system on your scooter isn't rocket science and should definitely last longer than 3000 miles, take it back to the original shop and politely demand satisfaction, if you get pushback/dancing from the person you talk to, email me at with the person's name and contact phone number, if it's in the USA, and I will call on your behalf and convince them to repair your scooter at no charge, trust me I relish these type of situations. If you would like to be more informed about your scooter you will need a service/owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Vespa, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.
