That is a great looking setup.
Can you please tell us more details about the parts numbers and who installed them?
I have a small Givi top box on my PCX125 but I can't say that I like it at all. It rattles like crazy and this lower level model lacks a seal around the top and bottom connecting edge so it is not truly water or dust proof. Also it was available only in black and in Thailand that makes it an oven in the sun.
You have some cloth covers on the side bags. Is that because they aren't waterproof or dust proof?
Next year I'll be replacing my PCX with a new 150 model and keeping the original PCX125 for visitors and backup, and I'd like to do up the new one like yours if the bags were 1/ water and dust proof and 2/ white to match the bike and keep the temperature down inside.
Like most of us big farangs, you've removed the seat bump and done something different. I do wish that Honda made a decent seat for the PCX or that the replacement seats didn't still have the original twin bumps still in place under the padding because they make for an uncomfortable seat even when re-done.
Don't get me wrong, I love my PCX overall and it has been a tough and reliable bike in floods, mountains and off road trails. I just wish I could find a seat that worked, and some bags that didn't leak, rattle or cook my things.
