Lambretta or Vespa?
Dec. 14, 2001, 3:41 PM

New scooters, but we again face the eternal question: Lambretta or Vespa? Off-white and racing green, or dark blue-gray? You decide. One thing is for certain, though: leather seats are sweet.

We've added the electronic ignition as an option for the vb1/vl1. Go nuts.

scootRS Vespa 5-port upgrade
Dec. 9, 2001, 2:25 PM

OK, updating a 1960's Vespa to a 3-port system is a pretty good idea. Piaggio did the same themselves when they got to the Sprint Veloce, and we thus added it as a standard restoration option long ago. (Classic styling, yes, but we've never understood why anyone wants to stick with a bad idea, just because it is “original.”) But we got to thinkin': if 3 ports are cool, then maybe.... We thus announce today that scootRS now offers a 5-port upgrade as an option on our Vespa restorations. (Yes, that's the square root of 25 ports, up from the standard 2.) We have just finished two of them with tuned exhausts - one with an electric starter - and they are damn peppy, we must say. Shift and pull, with no hesitation. Very nice and another scootRS first that is a highly recommended option.

Vespa VBB restoration
Dec. 7, 2001, 4:48 PM

Did we say we'd post this the 5th? In any case, to start, one item we can now offer for VBB restorations is a choice of rubber trim colors: gray, cream, red, or blue. This includes everything, even an original-style rubber center mat. And we also have whitewall inserts again, in plain white - well, more of a cream - or with a red or blue stripe in the middle. 8 inch or 10 inch. So let's see: how about a red VBB with cream seats and rubber trim and whitewall inserts with a red stripe? Or pearl white with blue rubber trim? Hmmm.

For Lambrettas we now have very nice rubber floormats in black as a restoration option. -Ones with raised sections to fit perfectly over the floor rails. And the whitewall inserts fit Lambrettas too, of course. Pics and more to follow.

3-port Vespa
Nov. 8, 2001, 2:26 PM

We should mention that if you add the 3-port option to your Vespa restoration, we not only add the ports to the case for you, but we also cut the crank to match. What does that mean? In an aphorism: power is the root of all fun.

VBB

A gorgeous mica red VBB, 3-port, with electronic ignition and a tuned exhaust - what more could you want? How about a potential bargain? Seven days and counting.

Sx200 vs. VBB
Oct. 3, 2001, 10:12 PM

An interesting find this week, and an increasingly rare one. We bought an sx200 that was "restored" in a local shop 2 years ago and has been parked in a garage ever since. Seems the owner was afraid to send it overseas where he had originally indented to make a profit, as he had come to learn what a local "restoration" meant. (For example, you can't see it in the photo, but black rubber trim has been painted gray.) We're going to strip it completely down and start all over again. First we'll throw away every piece in the motor. -And really, there are almost zero sx200 left in the country.

VBB in utero: now that's red! And that's a very classic light olive on a scooter with some nice modern features.
