Roadkill: November 2005

Vespa electronic ignition for classics
Nov. 28, 2005, 8:28 PM

A nice email today from Oz:

I have bought several parts from your site and have been impressed with the price and quality.

I noticed a CDI ignition system on the site and due to the fact that my scooter has a habit of chewing through head and tail light globes faster than I could put them im, I bought one. I received it today along with several other parts and decided to fit the ignition system this afternoon.

I started at 4.30pm and had the whole thing done by 8.30pm (my mechanical knowledge is average). It started first kick. I found the instructions were very good with excellent detail and clear pictures.

Congratulations to you for a great product, I will be buying another for my VBB. Thanks again.

Great, thanks for the nice email!

New Lambretta front shocks / dampers
Nov. 24, 2005, 10:57 PM

Lambretta shocks Next item on the improvement hit list has been our Lambretta front shocks. Made inhouse at scootRS and much nicer and stiffer than before, better quality than any similar looking ones around.

In other news, we're also busy testing our new tubeless rim design to make sure you'll be happy with them. They are looking very sharp and holding up well so far. We'd post a photo, but we like to keep the people who “invent” our parts in suspense :-) (Inside joke.)

We also had a new custom one-off product come out last week, long in development. Welcome, Karis. Become the one you are.

Improved parts
Nov. 19, 2005, 8:07 AM

Months back we began a big quality drive at scootRS and as part of it redesigned many items, brought out new items, vastly expanded our machining department, canned any poor performing staff, etc. For a good example of the results, see the latest iteration of our Lambretta disc brake kit, which is simply excellent, much better than our previous one. We've been steadily improving many small parts too and that's paying off as well. An email today:

have just received the splash plate and bridge piece from you and what an improvement to the previous ones I received, thank you.

You'll see some great new items shortly, and some great redesigns of old items, for example, our Vespa tubeless rims. Hold on to your hats...

Attention Mr. Houston: your email bounces back undeliverable every time. You can find the item you want in the Series II section.
