Jun. 17, 2002, 5:54 PM

We've finally imported the only whitewalls in the country and have added them as an option for restorations. You can now switch to whitewalls when ordering a scooter. Nice.

Amerivespa Rally award winner
Jun. 6, 2002, 6:07 PM

Well, a nice email arrived noting a nice award for one of our customer's scooters at the recent massive Amerivespa Rally, as judged by Vespa Club of America staff:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It was a great rally and a good party.... [T]he TV175 won “Best Lambretta” in the Concours d'Elegance. Lots of positive comments and a few surprised ones when I told them it was one of your scooters.... I am fairly sure I came away from the weekend with quite a few more converts to your products. One thing I was surprised at this weekend, was the number of scooterists who had never been to your web site. Quite a few indicated that they had heard or read comments on the BBS, etc., but many didn't know about your site or the extensive range of products you offer.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All in good time. Congrats on the award.

Lambretta LD parts
May. 31, 2002, 12:54 PM

For you LD fans, we've added some more parts pics to the LD section. In fact, trying to add in any missing parts pics onsite now. Slowly, slowly...

°°

Added a new coil-cdi unit for PX and Lambretta Indian cdi systems, just like the Ducati one which we've stopped selling. This one is the exact same, but much cheaper! Works great. What more can you ask?

Electric start Lambretta SX200 review
May. 28, 2002, 6:25 PM

As you may already know, there was a nice review last month in Scootering Magazine of an electric start sx200 we did last year. It was featured on the cover in the lower left, and had a two-page spread inside with many photos:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[T]here are some desirable models of vintage scooters out in the Far East such as genuine Lambretta SX200s. The only problem was how to get them back to the west in a saleable roadworthy condition after they have spent upwards of 30 years in the many hands of the Vietnamese bodge fairies. This is something that Randall from ScootRS.com has been trying to tackle from his business based in Saigon. [....] The clever bit is marketing this service on the Internet so that a potential buyer can choose the paint scheme and the mechanical specification of their scooter. This is exactly the situation with the scooter you see before you, which present owner John Tipping ordered over the Internet to his individual specification, even down to the layout of the two-tone paintwork. [...] The extra that made John's bike really worth a look though, was the electric start conversion. It was developed by the mechanics at ScootRS along the lines of that which Servetta had been working on in the 1980s....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Conclusion after test-driving it? “the engine rode fine and the gears worked perfectly.”

Read and see the complete review on our reviews page, where we have also added some scans of the previous Scoot! Quarterly review.

Lambretta hydraulic disc
Mar. 9, 2002, 5:57 PM

Updated the hydraulic disc picture below so you can see the headset and a good overall shot.

°°

We just figured out that our internet bill for last year was over $1000. Can you believe it? All for the slowest line and the worst service in the world. Strange how that works.

Lambretta or Vespa?
Mar. 1, 2002, 2:09 PM

New month, new customer's scooters, but the same old question: Lambretta or Vespa? Black and racing green LIS with sports exhaust, or silvery-blue VBB with PX motor? We merely pose the question.

Lambretta hydraulic front disc kit
Feb. 28, 2002, 1:46 PM

Well, yes, it is a bit extreme perhaps, you're quite correct. Too late now. We've just released the scootRS Lambretta hydraulic front disc kit. If you want superior braking - read: "modern braking" - check it out. We've also finally put our dropbars up for sale which you have likely been drooling over on the LI150 page for months now. We added PX dropbars as well, just for fun. Finally a Lambretta dual gas tank kit, as used on the same LI150, and Ancillotti-style seats.

°°

After being away for the holidays, then moving shop, it's good to finally get all that out there for your perusal. Hence: please peruse the New Parts page.

Scooter reviews
Feb. 6, 2002, 12:32 PM

We'll have some major product announcements in a day or so, but until then, enjoy a few photos of just some of the recent restorations we've done. (-When are you going to realize your dream? And avoid a nightmare!)

°°
Enjoy as well some self-serving blather, otherwise known as a couple of recent emails:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I received the scooter yesterday. First off, nice job crating it. It took me 30 minutes to remove the scooter. It looks amazing. It totally exceeded my expectations. The pictures do not do justice to the detail. Top quality all around. After oil and gas it started on the third kick and I was off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've been researching around for quite some time now and am so excited to be
in the final stages of purchasing my first scooter. I'm also excited that
there is such a trustworthy shop that every scooter-head I've talked to and
all the posts I've read recommend and have nothing bad to say about.
This of
course would be scootrs.com. Initially I wanted to keep my first purchase in
the $2500 range, but every bike I've seen at local shops (San Francisco) in
that range aren't the quality I desire. I figure if I spend a grand more I
can get a fully restored bike with any color of my choice and any sort of
performance options.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It took a long time and a lot of hard work to get to where we are now, so we appreciate the kind words.

4-stroke Lambretta
Jan. 9, 2002, 1:49 PM

Hey, we're the link of the week at vespissimo.net.

°°

Have you heard about the new Lambretta model in the works? Don't get too excited, or think of the new Vespa, as, according to the LCGB, it is more of a goped than anything. It is designed to fold in two and fit in the trunk, and is an “electrically powered machine with a 12V battery fitted under the rear end. To charge it up you simply unscrew the dummy petrol filler cap and plug it into your household supply.” Take a look at the drawings and read the story. -More interesting are the plans for a new full-size 4-stroke Lambretta scooter as LCGB notes.
