Lower scooter prices and other fine things
May. 10, 2005, 11:14 PM

Some good news for Vespa scooter lovers:
  1. We've lowered the price on our ready-to-go VBC and VLB M-class by over $100 to $3,374, and $3,584 Deluxe. The difference between the VBB and VBC/VLB M-class was not the same as that of the regular scooters, but now it is.
  2. We've also lowered the price of a custom ordered VBC by $25; now when you add the 10 inch conversion option to a VBC you'll be at the same price as a VLB, which is basically the same scooter.
  3. We've added the brand-new electric start LML motor as an option so you can now custom order any Vespa as an M-class. The motor will be delivered separately (we can't import motors here unfortunately) but everything will be set up to be plug-and-play for you. Free delivery of the motor in North America or the UK; elsewhere there may be extra delivery charges, so please ask.
Finally, on a website note, we've eliminated the various scooter model links from the left menu system. To custom order a scooter you must go to the Scooters Intro page. That should help both load all pages slightly faster and clarify the scooter ordering process. From there the custom scooter ordering pages were improved as well. Enjoy.

Emptyness and angst no more: a redirection
May. 7, 2005, 2:07 PM

If you've ever experienced an empty cart here while shopping for scooter parts, it should be cleared up now. Was likely a problem of showing up at http://www.scootrs.com, then ending up on http://scootrs.com (no “www”). Now all visitors are sent to http://scootrs.com pages.

If you have bookmarks for your favorite Lambretta or Vespa parts here with “www” in them, you can change them if you want as you'll end up at a URL without the “www” anyway.

The Vespa song
Apr. 26, 2005, 6:46 PM

Our new favorite song: “All I want is a Vespa” (Real Audio format) by Churchbuilder from Akron, Ohio. Check them out.

UPDATE: we emailed Shelflife records yesterday and they were kind enough to put up the Vespa song in MP3 format. Also saw the full CD with the Vespa tune is only $1 if you want to buy it!

M-class Vespa restoration update
Apr. 10, 2005, 1:09 PM

I just thought I would let you know that I was the one who bought your [M-class] VBB Vespa ID 150.... I used the scooter most of last summer.... This scooter is so pretty it never fails to turn heads.... You provide a magnificent product, fast, fun, reliable, economical and seductively beautiful. Whatever you do, don't stop!
We haven't stopped. In fact, we just added onsite for purchase a new batch of our Vespa M-class restored scooters: VBB, VBC and VLB models with brand-new electric-start 5-port reed-valve 12v CDI motors.

VBB M-classVBC M-class Deluxe We've created two types this time: the M-class and the M-class Deluxe. The basic model is more original in style: there is no glovebox, rear spare holder (a front spare holder is used), or rear buddy seat (a rear rack is used), and the legshield has rubber and alloy trim, not stainless steel. On the other hand, the Deluxe is what Vespa would have done back then if they weren't selling just cheap transportation.

Original 1960s Italian classic style, modern coveniences, eight great colors to choose from, and, most importantly, it's all been put together with scootRS attention to detail. What more could you ask for?

We've already pre-sold a few, so go to our Available scooters page, under North American stock, to order one now. They don't last long.

More on More Info
Mar. 23, 2005, 4:26 PM

We've finally cleaned up the “More Info” page when reading about a scooter product. It has a gallery feature now, so we can easily inundate you with photos. A few more tweaks might be forthcoming, but now looks quite tidy, at least in Firefox, Opera 8, IE6. (If your browser thinks otherwise, let us know by sending in a screenshot along with your browser type and version.)

A few more features will be added shortly as well, as soon as our fingers are rested...

San Francisco scooter daze
Mar. 21, 2005, 8:41 PM

Recent love letter from the city of love, San Francisco:
I am writing this email to express my absolute satisfaction with your replacement parts, customer service and technical assistance. I recently installed your tuned exhaust and carburetor kit PWK-type 28/30mm 150/175cc. After adjusting the carburetor settings and jets per your excellent instructions, I was amazed at what this upgrade has done for my 64 Lambretta Li Special 150. A few years ago I replace the stock piston and bored it out to 175 cc as well as expanded the intake and exhaust ports but this did very little to increase performance. After visiting your web site and reading your advise on exhaust and carburetor upgrades, I decided to give it a try. The results are unbelievable. I mean this scooter flies like never before and is almost scary fast. It performs more like a 250 cc motor and sounds bad ass as it screams down the street. [...] Thanks so much for all your help and advise.
That's a great combo, glad you like it.

It blowed up real good
Mar. 19, 2005, 10:00 AM

You know it's a bad day when...
Heidi Brown was told she could park her new scooter outside the vehicle registration office while she waited to get number plates.

To her horror, it was blown up by the army after someone reported that it might be a bomb.

Police in Ipswich confirmed on Thursday that a moped had been blown up in a controlled explosion after local business people “raised concerns” that it could be a bomb.

CBC Radio has no scooters
Mar. 15, 2005, 7:16 PM

Have to mention: the great CBC Radio 3 is featuring four issues, including their last one, while they redesign the website for a new format. If you've never been there, take a look, it's one of the best on the web. Lots of click and explore...
