Lambretta inboard disc brake kit
Nov. 23, 2008, 8:17 AM

Lambretta inboard disc brake kit A little while ago we informed people about our original replacement Lambretta inboard disc brake kit - as opposed to our hydraulic brake kits. This is the ONLY high-pressurecast replacement inboard disc in the world, the other ones are only sandcast - one a quite poor Vietnam market one, the other Italian - thus rougher, much weaker and less precise (which often means fitment issues).

Here are a few photos of the two sides of the disc being machined for studs and such and compared with an original. Also a shot of the disc brake i cap we've made. (You can also see a video of one part of the process of stamping out the i caps on the parts start page.)

We'll be putting the i caps and other items up for sale shortly, along with the disc brake pads and disc grills and vented disc and such we already sell. We're just doing the adjuster lever and then we'll make the disc available as a complete package.

Nov. 22, 2008, 8:05 AM

Award winning Lambretta scooter A Lambretta we restored the other year, and which the owner further modded out, just raked in a big haul of trophies at a big show in the United States.



Out of about 150 scooters entered, it won 3 awards including 1st place for Best Italian Scooter, 1st place for Best Custom Paint and 3rd place for Best Vintage Scooter.



Congratulations!

Lambretta scooters in the shop Here are a few photos from the other week that we forgot to post of some scooters we have now finished:

  1. A Ferrari red and silver Lambretta with many stainless items and a torquey 250cc engine.
  2. A very stylish green and white Lambretta.

The green and white Lambretta is already posted on the Photos page; the red one will be up shortly.

Original style high-quality Lambretta seat covers
Sep. 25, 2008, 9:40 AM

Original style Lambretta seat covers Same as Italian but half the price? We keep repeating that because it is true and a great deal for you.

Starting with Lambretta double seats and the LD front seat and LD rear seat, we have remade our seat covers to be exactly like Italian ones from the original suppliers to Innocenti with high-quality heavy rubber backing in joined sections, foam-injection inserts at the back (on double seats), stainless rivets, zinc-plated tabs, rear seat badge, etc. - and of course the classic shape!

But we've also improved the original: we include a separate foam padding for you to put over your seat frame first to make the original more comfortable!

For now we are still offering our cheaper covers if you're on a budget - no hard rubber backing, different construction - but these new ones are much heavier and better quality. And at only $59 and $39, they are about half the price elsewhere for this quality!

Yo, Lambretta scooters in the casa!
Sep. 5, 2008, 11:22 AM

A nice email today, though we won't mention which country so as to protect the innocent:

Our Lambretta LIS 150 is absolutely gorgeous and a fabulous restoration was done by ScootRS even [xxxx] from Casa Lambretta was impressed and he used to say he would never work on Vietnam scooters but he said he would work on ours if need be.

Thanks for the update. When people actually see for themselves what we do, the feedback is overwhelmingly positive.

New Lambretta and Vespa GS160 panels
Aug. 30, 2008, 4:54 PM

New Lambretta panels
How about new machine-stamped Lambretta TV/LIS side panels, left and right? These are not welded at all or handmade as you can see in raw form.

GS160 panelGS160 panel We also have impossible to find Vespa GS160 panels, left and right. These ones are manually stamped and shaped and partly welded, so not perfect like fully machine-stamped items, but better than what currently exists: nothing.

Please see the new parts page for more details.

By the way, as noted, we're closed for 3 days for holidays.

“Friggin” scooters?
Aug. 15, 2008, 12:47 PM

Is “friggin” a swear word? We always forget:

People friggin love the scooter by the way.... There's this Italian guy who runs a pizza joint here that is in love with it!


I had it out last night for the first run in a while and I was very impressed at the power through all the gears - now that I have about 150 miles on it, it is really starting to break in nicely.


I am very impressed with the restoration that you guys did on my Lambretta and the way you had it dialed in is spot on. [....] I was out for a ride today and had people stopping me everywhere to ask what it was and where I got it. So thank you to everyone there for delivering what you promised... I am very pleased and satisfied with ScootRS.

Great, always nice to hear customers are happy.

Of course, just to be fair, there's always the “friggin” internet and the word of those who don't know anything about what we actually do except that we're in Vietnam, a land of 80,000,000 people from whence containers of awful scooters are launched only to land on eBay to be flipped to the unsuspecting: “Dude is a scooter butcher.”

As you can see, we let you handle the scales yourself.

Lambretta RB22 custom scooter
Aug. 10, 2008, 5:46 PM

Lambretta RB22 custom scooter If you played the video on the homepage, you'll recognize this scooter.

It's a Lambretta LI Special, but with an AF Rayspeed 225cc RB22 cylinder kit, dual tanks, hydraulic disc brake kit, dropbars, custom paint, matching seat, and stainless accessories.

And, yes, it is as fast as it looks, and as fun as it sounds in the video.

Lambretta Series 1/2 tank rubber buffers
Jul. 31, 2008, 8:27 AM

Back to work Now that we're back to work, we've added some more new rubber to save you from badly overpriced Italian repros, in this case Series 1 and 2 tank buffers.

The Italian repros go for between $2-3 for each piece! Ours is...wait for it...$1.25 for the exact same thing.

Series 1/2 tank buffer kit Or a complete S2 tank buffer kit of 8 as pictured above is around $24 for the Italian ones, while the exact same from us is only $8.75, almost 1/3 the price!

Once again, our new inhouse “Casa RS” items are the same quality or usually better than Italian - many of the Italian repros are surprisingly poor; our new Lambretta floor strips sets are now the best in the world, for example - but for about half the price.
