Recent ScootRS customer feedback and parts reviews
Nov. 20, 2012, 9:02 AM

Some recent ScootRS customer emails with feedback and reviews of items:

So far the level of service and communication has been exceptional, looking forward to receiving my order now!

[Wholesale customer:] I have been having a look at the quality of the parts [another UK shop] has purchased from you and decided to place an order directly with you as it seems much better than the quality of [a different supplier's] parts.

I do appreciate for your technical advice. I'm sure you are the most helpful shop in the market.

>>Hi, just checking in to see how you like the new Atomic Vespa handlebar adjustable levers.
Very nice indeed, excellent quality, I am very impressed with them.

>>Hi, just checking in to see how you like the new Atomic Lambretta handlebar adjustable levers.
They are working out great. The right hand one is a must for the disk brake. The feel is much better and adjusting it to fit my hand works great. The left hand one is fantastic during those LONG rally rides. No hand strain and if the cable stretches a little you can just make a quick adjustment on the ride.

Bought our Lambretta from ScootRS 6 years ago no problems as yet.

You guys did such a good job on the scoot though, my local scooter shop is very happy with it.

I got the refund! TOO COOL! Thank you for working with me and making me feel appreciated and taken care of - you have earned my business and I think I see a disk brake kit in the near future! LOL! Thanks again.

Thanks for all the great feedback!

Message from a cool guy restoring scooters for a hobby
Nov. 12, 2012, 9:34 AM

Email message from a cool guy who restores scooters for a hobby:

I have buying parts from you for about 5 yr, I renovate scooters as a hobby, I'm 75 yrs old, and worked at the local scooter dealer when I was a kid. 

When I get a new project I get a parts list and send to you, I think I'm on number 16, I kind of like Lambrettas best but have done Vespas, Zundapps, Fujis.

I got 2 of your scooter covers yesterday and really like them, they fit just right. I also got a cylinder cowl for my VB1 that you say won't fit, I will let you know. 

Today I'm working on 3 Lambrettas and one Vespa. I do all the work myself, paint, mechanical, electrics.

Vespa Cylinder cowl VN2/VL/VB1

So it warmed up a little today and I fitted the V0101-L1 cowl to my 1958 VB1 150. It fits like a glove, no bending or massaging, slid right on and bolted up.

Hope this helps your listing.

It does, thanks! There are so many different Vespa (and Lambretta) models, customer feedback like this really helps. 

Glad you like the parts and that we can help you to enjoy your hobby.

Forum reviews of Vespa GTS/LX/S/ET parts and accessories
Nov. 7, 2012, 2:07 PM

Here's what actual customers have posted on various forums about our modern Vespa spares and accessories:

  • Great service and really good product quality!!!
  • Leder-Liebhaber eine verhältnismäßig günstige Alternative zu der Original-Ledersitzbank. Der Bezug sitzt wie angegossen auf einer GTS 125. Die Qualität scheint mir sehr gut zu sein, das Service war in puncto Geschwindigkeit aussergewöhnlich Translation: Lovely leather, a relatively cheap alternative to the original leather seat. The cover fits like a glove on a GTS 125. The quality seems to be very good, the service was exceptional in terms of speed.
  • The knee pads seem very well made and look the mutts nuts.
  • Ich hab Sie bestellt bei [ScootRS] und gibts keine Probleme zwecks Qualität. Translation: I've ordered at [ScootRS] and there are no problems for the purpose of quality.
  • I bought a stainless one from ScootRS a couple of weeks ago and it's good quality. Was with me in 5 days.
  • Die Teile sind alle angekommen, gute Verarbeitung, paßgenau, keine Probleme. Translation:The parts have all arrived, well made, exact fit, no problems.
  • They do make the scoot stand out from the norm :-)

Nice, thanks! We appreciate your emails too.

See our Vespa GTS parts, Vespa LX/S parts, and Vespa ET parts here, both spares and accessories.

Remember: on forums, ALWAYS listen ONLY to actual customers for feedback and fact-based firsthand reviews because too many anonymous posters are associated with competitors or hiding their own interests. And always ignore forum warrior types trying to scare people into blindly following them. See firsthand, think for yourself then let other people know!
