Vespa Rear brake cable link We gave this item the wrong SKU ages ago and have just corrected it and updated the photos.

While we were at it, we improved the Vespa rear brake cable link by including the pin and clip to go with it in a complete unit. Elsewhere these items are all separate and cost a lot more.

Vespa brake pedal link Also, we added the item that should have had that SKU, a Vespa brake pedal link. Again, we added the pin and clip for it, and again, it is much less than elsewhere. There is a local Vietnam version but the bolt is wrong, so we can't sell it. You'll probably see it on eBay ;-)

By the way, both of these items by us are in stainless steel so they won't rust!

Vespa GS150 seat cover
May. 2, 2009, 9:01 AM

Vespa GS150 seat cover We make two types of Vespa GS150 seat covers, both the early GS150 VS1-4 seat cover shown here that we recently came out with, and a GS150 VS5 seat cover. Here's another email today along with some earlier comments praising our GS150 seat covers:

  • I was very impressed with the new GS150 seat cover that we got from you and can't wait to see the new 160 one.
  • Features a nifty vinyl covered foam pad that won't crumble apart some day all over your GS like exposed foam eventually will [with Italian repros].
  • I am very happy with all other purchases particularly the GS150 seat cover. Amazing quality and value.

Our seat cover quality Take a look at our complete line of inhouse-made high-quality seat covers made as original for both Lambretta and Vespa - and save 50% over similar (or lesser) quality Italian repros. Be sure to try the popup explaining how they are made to see why we're getting such good feedback about our seat covers.

Apr. 13, 2009, 4:32 PM

The other year we did some custom stainless steel beading and a nice repro of his original seat cover for a customer with a Vespa Allstate VNA.

The scooter just won an award for best hotrod.

Congratulations!

Disc brake reviews and warning
Apr. 12, 2009, 7:12 AM

A nice email today from Belgium about our Vespa disc brake kit:

Vespa disc brake kit

I am a customer for many years, here some feedback from your disc for a vespa : first class quality easy to install (when you have a little press) and it works like hell, the best deal I ever got.

I look forwards to the inboard dics brake for a lammy, already ordered, thanx in advance.

Great! Like all modern vehicles, our Vespa kit is fully hydraulic and includes the master cylinder and dual-piston caliper but is still only $289, whereas a Grimeca type is only semi-hydraulic with a single piston caliper and already costs MUCH more!

On a related note, a UK shop owner posted the following warning and recommendation about Lambretta disc brake kits, though it applies equally to Vespa types as well:

if your buying make sure you get the ScootRS type (pressure cast) as opposed to the Sterling/SPAQ type (sand cast) - we have seen one of the pepperpot styles crack on the thinnest part of the hub and also a standard outboard one crack the mounting lugs (which resulted in the wheel rim parting from the hub after it happened - both were Sterling/SPAQ - just thought id better share this info with you.

Take a look at all our high pressure cast disc brake kits here.

Stainless steel hydraulic brake hose included
Mar. 25, 2009, 4:02 PM

Stainless steel hydraulic brake hose Part III of the old-school revolution is here, as well as some new-school evolution.

We've just added our new stainless steel hydraulic brake hose 140cm to go with our Lambretta inboard disc brake kit. It is long enough to loop around the speedo route as shown in our last post about that type of conversion.

But also we've added a new stainless steel hydraulic brake hose 110cm and made it standard equipment on all our Lambretta and Vespa disc brake kits! At no extra charge! This is effectively a sizable reduction in the price of our brake kits as well as a boost in quality.

Lambretta disc brake kit This is something people have been asking for for a long time. Unfortunately there are none available locally, so it seemed better to let people buy one overseas if needed. There are some too short tacky hoses in blue and red going around but we wanted to do it right, so we ended up making everything inhouse yet again. What's nice is that our banjo hose ends are not pressed on, unlike with many hoses out there, which means you can make a much smaller hole in your bodywork and run the hose through then attach the ends after.

Finally, as you can also see, one other improvement we've made is to the stainless plate on our Lambretta disc brake kit. It now comes with a very stylin’ i logo, yet another standout feature from the low-end knockoffs out there.

ScootRS goes racing - tubeless rim sponsor!
Feb. 4, 2009, 8:52 AM

SRP racing team

We've been approached by long-time award-winning UK Lambretta scooter racers to become a sponsor and supply our tubeless rims for the racing season.

We are now a proud tubeless rim sponsor of the SRP Racetech team of Ralph Remnant and PJ McLaverty, 2008 Group 7 Champion. With their tremendous Lambretta race experience dating back to the 1980's, and 12 sidecar titles and 1 overall British Scooter Championship title to their credit, we wish them continued success in the current year.

With long experienced scooter racers moving to them, ask yourself about your safety and when you are going to start using Lambretta tubeless rims or Vespa tubeless rims to eliminate entirely the dangerous blowouts experienced on regular rims.

Update: we just got an email today after our post:

a quick note to say how pleased i am with my lambretta tubeless rims, 10,000+ miles and not a problem, 2 punctures (1 with pillion), machine was controllable on both occasions, many many thanks

Nice update, thanks, another 2 possible accidents prevented.

Tubeless rims for Lambretta and Vespa
Dec. 19, 2008, 7:50 AM

A forum thread about our tubeless rims:

Lambretta tubeless rimsI've just bought a set for the lammy... can't be doing with the worry of blowouts on split rims any longer... been too spoilt with the GTS.


A lot of the lads in my club have gone to tubeless on their TS1's and are all raving about them one lad had a 3 inch nail go into his tyre last year on the way to a rally (at high speed) and it gently went down .....normally would have had him off.


Good to hear that other people are chuffed with 'em. Sounds like they do the job well.

I finally decided to get some after watching a lad from our club, who's wheel literally went bang and blew the side of the tyre out. He and his daughter would've been a complete mess if a car had been coming the other way.

As we've said before, it's hard to imagine anyone choosing to run on regular rims these days when you can almost guarantee yourself a dangerous blowout sooner or later if you do. Get yourself some Lambretta tubeless rims or Vespa tubeless rims as on a modern scooter and stop the clock ticking.

(By the way, we've also added red and black colors now!)
