Scooter rain ponchos

Rain poncho cover LambrettaRain poncho cover Vespa

A new item that will come in handy in the new year is our Lambreta or Vespa rain poncho.

It's a light waterproof rain poncho to keep in your scooter and save you when it starts to pour on the way somewhere. These are faster, easier and more effective than rain suits as the water flows right off of you, top-to-bottom, rather than gathers under you. (You can also use it in a pinch to cover the top of your scooter from the rain.)

As a safety feature, the big Lambretta or Vespa logo is a reflective white that really shows up in headlights, and is on both the front and back!

Nice item for only $14.75.

Scooter Viagra to service your pleasure
Dec. 8, 2009, 6:02 AM

Two emails today from scooterists on opposite sides of the world, the first from England about our Lambretta anti-dive disc brake:

Fitted the anti-dive kit at the week end, works great, really improves the braking as well as the handling.

It is scooter Viagra (stiffens everything up, ha, ha).

And here's a very nice email from South Africa about our Vespa parts:

Today I received my first parts order from ScootRS. I would just like to say thanks so much for your amazing level of service.

It is such a pleasure to order parts through ScootRS and you definitely have my support for the future.

Thanks for the kind emails.

Parts order processing
Dec. 1, 2009, 6:38 PM

Ever wonder where your parts order goes once it has been submitted?

And who is responding when you submit a change in your account history?

The mystery is resolved!

The American Friend
Nov. 18, 2009, 1:35 PM

An email from the USA:

Hey there, got the parts in a couple days ago and have started working on getting them all in. I can't believe how quickly they got here! Only three days and from halfway around the world no less!

It's a refreshing change of pace for me since I have to always order overseas for a lot of Lambretta parts and wait for at least a week or more for a few little parts here and there. I'll be sure to be ordering soon from you.

Cheers

Nice, thanks. Glad to help out an American friend. (Pretty good movie, if we recall correctly.)

More Vietnam scooter drivers
Nov. 10, 2009, 8:48 PM

What's in the package, sir? Continuing our series of photos of scooter-related things we see on the way to the factory is this 3-step encounter:

  1. Hmmm, what the heck is that up ahead? Is that a large box driving a scooter?
  2. Oh, I see, it's just a refrigerator. I heard those Sanyos are pretty good.
  3. Well, good to see he has it firmly strapped down. Safety first!

A big thank you to, well, the entire world!
Nov. 8, 2009, 5:05 PM

This is what is so cool about making parts at ScootRS! The scooter parts orders just downloaded in the last batch are for:

Spain, Australia, England, France, United States, Paraguay, Argentina, Israel, Australia, Australia, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Austria, Singapore, Chile

We must have a got a little mention in Australia today. And to think someone in Asuncion, Paraguay, was ordering parts from us about the same time someone in Kiryat Ekron, Israel, decided to do the same. That is awesome!

The other week we got to look up some Spanish on the internet and practice pronunciation for an hour before phoning Peru and leaving a message: “Hola. Estoy llamando desde ScootRS en Vietnam sobre el paquete.” That was quite fun, actually. At minimum we learned it is “yamando” not “lamando.”

It is such a pleasure dealing with scooterists around the world - who are almost always pleasant, particularly the further you get from the “center” of the world -, and such an honor to supply so many people and so many countries with scooter parts when people can shop anywhere in the world but choose ScootRS.

So, thank you for all the kind recommendations of ScootRS on your forums around the world, and thank you for letting us help you keep your Lambretta and Vespa scooters driving along the roads of the world!

More Vietnam scooters on the road
Oct. 29, 2009, 10:53 AM

Vietnam scootersMore photos of Vietnam road life we see on the way to work and scooters you don't want to be stuck behind.

Plastic balls out the wazoo, shards of rusty metal, and long, long tubes, these are just a few of our favorite things.

We're sure that guy with the balls can see us passing, right?

We love Malta because Malta loves scooters
Oct. 25, 2009, 1:22 PM

We seem to have a lot of scooter part customers in Malta. Here's another email from one today:

Subject: Good quality parts

Dear ScootRS

I received the parts today, am very happy thank you.

What an amazing history Malta has. And it looks beautiful. Must be great for scooters.

One day we'll visit...


Speaking of places to visit, we just got another nice email a few minutes after posting the one above:

Hi there!

I am from Malaysia. Just dropping by to say “Good Job and Great Service.”

Would you buy Italian or ScootRS scooter parts?
Oct. 9, 2009, 8:04 AM

An interesting post comparing Lambretta inboard disc brakes from Italy and Vietnam (well, not the local Vietnam sand cast one, only our ScootRS high-pressure cast disc brake):

I've not compared Tino's [Italian Evergreen] version and the ScootRS one side by side, but have seen both and looked them over fairly carefully at different times.

Tino's was OK when it first came out and there were no other alternatives for people who couldn't be bothered to look out for an original Campagnolo. Compared to the original it was always rough as fcuk, only thing that made it bearable was you could use filler to smooth out most of the imperfections.

Lambretta inboard disc brake By contrast, I've compared a ScootRS one with an original. Personally, I would use the Campagnolo every time purely for originality in a standard set-up. But if you are looking to do a semi-hydraulic set-up why waste an original? Or in a straight choice between Tino's or the ScootRS, my vote's for the [ScootRS] Vietnamese version every time as it looks a much better product.

Please note, I have no knowledge of safety issues relevant to either. I'm basing my comment purely on visual closeness to the original and the ScootRS disc brake wins by a country mile.

As we've posted before, the major difference people need to be aware of with the original inboard or outboard hydraulic disc brakes is that our item is high-pressure cast like the original, whereas any other type out there is merely sand cast. (Again, including a local Vietnam market “SPAQ/Sterling” one often seen on eBay or at some UK resellers, so don't get confused.) Sand casting is a cheap process normally only used for trim items because it is much rouger, weaker and less precise. When buying from a reseller, insist on the ScootRS item by name.

(One side note: unlike others, our inboard hydraulic conversion doesn't require any modification to your back plate, so if you have an original disc brake, you only need our conversion caliper.)

People assume Italian parts are the best quality, but often that is not the case as this post clearly demonstrates. The fact is, many classic scooter parts are made elsewhere these days to the same or a higher standard - and are still cheaper. Look around and decide yourself!
