VB1/VL1
Aug. 8, 2002, 5:01 PM

We've added some new VL1 pictures. -A 5-port!

°°

We've also made a note that with our Vespas other than VB1/VL1, if you have chosen a 12v electronic ignition motor, we will use a PX-type brake pedal. It is already wired for a 12v system, neater than the old type, and gives better braking. Of course, if you don't want that, simply let us know when ordering and we can rewire an old-style one.

Visitors from SF, coming overland from Phnom Penh, enjoyed the mess in the shop the other day and were kind enough to give the light olive 5-port VL1 a test drive.

USA on a 1952 Vespa scooter
Jun. 22, 2002, 10:47 AM

“Greg Kinge is elated. He's only 1,000 miles away from completing a trip around the U.S. on his 1952 Vespa scooter. All he has to do is get to Newark, N.J., from Chicago.“

Read the rest in the Chicago tribune.

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.

Fake Vespa VBBs
Jun. 4, 2002, 10:26 PM

What does this photo mean?
-Something not very good.
What is it?
-It is a copy of a VBB horncast section.
And why would anyone want that?
-To weld onto a VBC to begin making it look like a VBB.
-And why would anyone do that?
Because many in the US like VBBs, and foolish Americans who know nothing about scooters except the idea of reselling them overseas for a quick buck - or those who just don't care how they make money - want “VBB”s from local shops here. So, that's what they are given by those shops because VBBs are harder to find and it is cheaper, just as was done before with “SX200”s that were really 150s. Greed feeds on greed and you get what you pay for - and often a whole lot less if you don't know what you're doing.

°°

In related fun, an American is said to be buying up all the VBBs he can get from various local shops, and when in Thailand the other week, we were told an American there is buying 100 VBBs. Hmmm, the same person? Pity the US shops who will have to explain over and over why they can't and won't even fix them for people. Or why their “VBB”s aren't really VBBs.

°°

Once again, if you don't know why scooters from local shops in Asia have an absolutely horrendous reputation despite a bit of new paint, now is a good time to find out. Be smart. Do your research. Buy restored scooters from sources you can trust and verify, whether in the same city or on the other side of the world. Buy good used scooters in your area if you are looking for a bargain, not something destined to be a pretty planter. This especially applies to eBay where the above scooters are likely to end up. -Along with all the rest on there now with their hidden origins...
