Mean Streets (of Vietnam)
Aug. 26, 2009, 10:07 PM

Mean Streets Continuing our Vietnam street photos of things we see on the way to work, here are 3 scooter photos taken within 15 minutes of each other, all on the same street.

The 1st involves something too frightening to even consider, unless there is actually someone on the scooter in front of that board. The 2nd is something we don't want to slow down to know about, especially if it involves a restaurant we frequent, and the 3rd is a sad sight for any beer lover.

ScootRS goes racing again
Aug. 22, 2009, 10:46 AM

We've added a new racing section to our parts review pages alongside comments and press.

We are already sponsoring SRPRacetech's race team with our Lambretta tubeless rims, and we can now announce that ScootRS are also sponsoring Tony O’Brien and his Green Hornet Vespa 90SS in the BSSO.

Tony is also sponsored by Charlie Edmonds’ Performance Tuning - the scooter has 31hp! - and Kegra Racing. See a video of Tony in action.

For a bird's eye view of scooter racing, also check out this video:

Peruvian scooterists
Aug. 21, 2009, 6:42 PM

We've always dreamed of going to Machu Pichu, Peru. One day. In the meantime, Peru is coming to ScootRS. A nice email today after we added another shipping service for our friends in Peru looking for scooter parts:

Thank you very much. I just received my last order a few days ago. Everything came perfect and on time. I will be placing another order soon.

Great, hope the new service helps!

(ScootRS factoid: Peru is almost in our top 50 total sales list for the past year, just behind Panama. Go Peru!)

Russell Mitchell of Exile Cycles and a ScootRS Lambretta
Aug. 21, 2009, 10:35 AM

Russell Mitchell Exile Cycles A customer sent in an email with a photo of Russell Mitchell from Exile Cycles with his (our customer's) Lambretta scooter from us.

This was taken at the Glevum Stax 30th Anniversary weekend in Tewkesbury in the UK.

While so many Harley/chopper bikes are embarrassingly tacky - anything from Orange County, etc. - Russell Mitchell does great work, very cool and refined. Take a look at his site.

Lambretta LD parts - better quality, lower price
Jul. 12, 2009, 4:52 PM

Lambretta LD seat cover Lambretta LD badge Lambretta LD fork link coversFor you Lambretta LD owners out there, here are a few recent items we've made that are not only better quality than anything from Italy, but will also save you about 60% or more off the incredibly overpriced Italian items.

First up are our high quality Lambretta LD seat covers with pad included for only $39. The Italian ones are almost double but low quality.

Next up are Lambretta LD badges for rear gloveboxes and panel scoops. Only $9/set.

Finally, Lambretta LD fork link covers in stainless steel. Ours are $12.50/set, while Italian remakes are only chrome (and will thus rust and flake) but over $50!!!

See the entire Lambretta LD parts section for panel handles ($24 vs. $60 from Casa!!!), rims ($15.50 vs. $45 from Casa!!!), gloveboxes...

More website improvements
Jul. 8, 2009, 10:08 PM

We've improved a few more things on the website to make it easier for you to handle your scooter parts orders while wearing an adult diaper in the privacy of your own basement:

  • We updated the “What model?” page to cover everything so that you can more easily figure out what fits what. Now includes 10 different Vespa categories! Lambrettas seem almost Cartesian in comparison.
  • We've tweaked your Account/Order history page so you can do most anything you need there now. For example, we've included a way to change items if you ordered the wrong part type. You can also request an order update there in case the shipping staff fell asleep. (Your request actually rings a bell in our office attached to a long string.) And other “stuff”.
  • We tweaked the Help page to cover these things a little better too.

Basically, if you have to get up and put some clothes on, or email to change something, we haven't set something up correctly.

Hope it helps. Let us know if any problems.

Two boxes of scooter parts: an American tale
Jun. 13, 2009, 12:24 PM

Two boxes of scooter parts for two American customers were mixed up, either by us or the courier, and had to be redirected. A big thanks to one customer who helped forward one box then kindly emailed back:

I am getting a lot of comments on my scooter. “Where do you get parts?” ScooRS.com is the best source for price and quick delivery. Your parts fit and are quality made.

Thanks again for everything. I am glad I could help out on X's order. I am sure he will agree that you guys are the best.

Very nice of you. Thanks again. It seems many Americans do agree. Last year the US was number 5 on countries we ship to, far down in total, while last month the US was number 2 and not far out of 1st place!

Scooterists in the US - mostly Vespa but some Lambretta too - have sussed out the truth for themselves either direct from us or through smart shops there and increasingly avoid badly overpriced Italian items that are in reality mostly mediocre quality at best or just repackaged Indian/Vietnam items with a huge markup. Of course many Italian-made items are quite good, but so many others don't even compare on quality, let alone price. Just one obvious example of many...

Best scooter cop ever
Jun. 13, 2009, 6:44 AM

As someone recounted:

So two weeks ago, I'm riding my ’74 Rally 200 on the outskirts of my small Kansas town, doing near WOT in a 45mph county road. I get pulled over and my heart sinks.

So, county sheriff comes walking up and says, in classic cop form, “do you know how fast you were going sir?”

I say, “well, uh, the speedo on this thing is really innacurate and uh...”

He interrupts me with, “60! (pause) That's Incredible!”

So then he's just all stoked about the bike, asking me how old and what displacement etc, at no point does he look at my license or registration.

So then I say, “sir I don't want to push my luck here, but I'm dying to know my top speed, so uh, what would you think about clocking me?”

He goes “totally, let's do it.”

So, I go a half mile back up the road, turn around and go WOT in 4th, I fly by him, he's outside of the car with the radar pointed at me, and he even whips his fist around in the air as I fly by him.

I come back, he says “66!” and we high five. Then I showed him how to read a spark plug and we go our separate ways.

Best cop ever.

Did he look like Seth Rogan? Great story.
