Roadkill: November 2006

2007 scootRS Scooter Calendar?
Nov. 24, 2006, 9:53 PM

2007 Scooter Calendar After repeated emails asking if scootRS will have a follow-up to our hugely successful calendar last year - the hottest thing in scootering after the sparkplug -, the answer is: YES!

We've personally ended up having to design it again, like last years, after being completely unhappy with the design. Hopefully it will be ready in a couple weeks for shipping and no doubt thereafter a 2007 scootRS Calendar will grace your wall, coyly beckoning you towards bliss for another 12 incredibly long months.

Hmm, looking at the sample photo, we can't seem to remember if the models even have clothes on this year, better go check the proofs again...

A beautiful Vespa VBB
Nov. 23, 2006, 11:04 PM

Creamy VBB Dreamy VBB A few photos from the shopcam. Of course this mostly stock VBB (aka Sportique) has our great 4-speed 5-port motor with all-new parts inside (crank, gears, CDI flywheel, everything) so no bodges or anything to ever worry about, but beyond being zippy and reliable it's fairly stock. And very beautiful with the oxblood seat on cream, no doubt. All done, only $3344 for a Vespa VBB this nice throughout? Wow. Unbeatable.

We've also added a few new Vespa parts: a chrome brake pedal for PX, a chrome gear selector box, some spiffy seat badges, and more. As per usual, see our New scooter parts page.

Finally, a nice comment just received:

scootRS.com = GREAT! Thanks to you my ’66 scooter will look astonishing!

Great deal on a great classic: Vespa VLB Sprint $2879!
Nov. 8, 2006, 1:30 PM

We've changed our scooter prices a bit to reflect our stock and now probably the best deal anywhere on a restored scooter is our Vespa VLB Sprint, starting at just $2,299. That means fully-restored with an all-new 3-port CDI engine for ONLY $2879, 5-port CDI for ONLY $2944, or 5-port CDI reed-valve for ONLY $3044!

That is truly a great deal on an Italian model of this high quality restoration, which is far above that of the Asian/Indian imports being flipped everywhere.

How do you know? Read what a recent owner reports firsthand.

For you Lambretta fans, we've had to raise the price on some models which are impossible to find anymore. However, we've lowered the price a bit on our Lambretta LI150 Special, now starting at just $2899. Fully-restored with an all-new 150cc CDI motor it is only $3429, or $3519 for 200cc CDI! Also a truly great deal.

Levers, breathers, and explorers
Nov. 2, 2006, 2:25 PM

Yet another part we've made because the available ones aren't so good. Here we have a beautiful stainless steel one piece Lambretta breather plug. You can even change the packing years later if needed.

Also new are Vespas adjustable levers. You simply adjust the cable at the lever with these. In many shops you see these for $30+! Our price is $14.75 for a pair!

As usual, see the New Parts page

On another note, do you have the new IE7 browser installed? If you have, please send us a quick email and let us know of any issues. We had a weird error reported. Thanks. UPDATE: think we've traced it to an obscure javascript bug in IE. Hopefully fixed now. If not, let us know. And go get Firefox anyway, it's so much better.
