Fade-to-pink
Mar. 8, 2002, 10:58 PM

A rare thing in our shop. Let us clasp hands, rejoice, and revel in the wonders of the world. It will likely get a 200cc motor. -And no, it doesn't have a fade-to-pink paintjob - are you kidding? -, merely a bad photographer with a cheap flash.

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.

VLB review
Feb. 25, 2002, 3:53 PM

Warning! An email yesterday explains what we do and the problems you may encounter when ordering from us:

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

I received my scooter yesterday, a VLB. Even my wife was won over. She had enjoyed referring to my scooter as a ridiculous toy, but was quick to ask for a ride once she saw it. She was heard telling a friend that OUR scooter had finally arrived.

It started on the second kick, and the attention to detail is obvious. Absolutely flawless.

Many thanks. I look forward to ordering a Lambretta in the future -- maybe my wife will let that one be all mine.

VL1/VB1 porting option
Feb. 12, 2002, 12:30 PM

Some nice feedback today about the VL1/VB1 porting option we added a while ago, which we think is a must have on those models. The first customer to receive it wrote back:

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

You guys built a really great bike for me a few months ago. It was a silvery green and black VB1. It has run very well and goes much faster than I had ever dreamed. Very sharp. One of the nicest bikes in town. Thanks.

Scooter reviews

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.
