Roadkill: February 2004

Scooter jackets and riding clothes
Feb. 22, 2004, 7:44 PM

We've added a new category for scootering jackets and riding clothes. First up are some top quality IXS and Vanucci touring jackets at very low prices. We have ladies’ models as well.

Most items, only one unit of stock, so don't wait.

°°

Quite a coincidence. Our World News section just picked up a story that reads in part:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There has been a rise in the number of scooter-related accidents, mostly, it has to be said, in the fashionable Hoxton and Shoreditch areas of north London. The problem appears to have arisen because young trendsetters have been wearing inappropriate clothing as they’ve ridden around on their re-conditioned Vespas.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So there you go, get a jacket!

Best vintage two-wheel deal
Feb. 18, 2004, 11:49 AM

best vintage two-wheel deal Vancouver Magazine for Jan/Feb does an annual “Best of the City” round-up. They recommended scooterMD and one of our M-class Vespas as the “Best vintage two-wheel deal”.

We've also had a Vespa we did featured in a Aeroplan Visa credit card promotion. Both have been added to our reviews page, the latter under publicity.

TS1 225cc kit
Feb. 17, 2004, 4:52 PM

We've added a TS1 225cc kit as an option when ordering a Lambretta - any Lambretta. For only $750 extra you get A.F. Rayspeed's awesome TS1 225cc kit, race crankshaft, race clutch springs, our PWK-type 28/30mm carb kit, and all the port work involved in making things neat and tidy. (Our motors already include a race chain guide along with all new parts, including quality bearings.) If you are ordering a 150 or 175cc scooter, the option includes our 200cc case conversion so we can add the kit.

Only thing extra to add is the tuned exhaust in regular or stainless. Though likely you'll want to add the dual tanks... And the disc brake, too, no?

Just remember: speed is addictive.

Thumbnails
Feb. 15, 2004, 6:14 PM

We changed the way the parts pages display a few things. You now click the thumbnail and get a popup of a larger image. Also if the product name is a colored link, click it for more info on the item (if it isn't, there is no more info). That should reduce hits to the database.

Refresh the page to get the new stylesheet if the parts pages appear with huge titles. It will look normal again after that.

Lambretta original receipt
Feb. 11, 2004, 12:10 PM

Thought you might enjoy this. It's an original receipt for the purchase of a Lambretta TV175 imported brand new from Italy in 1965. Cost was 37,580 Dong, which today equals about $2 in the current currency that really shares a name only. The company that sold the scooter doesn't exist anymore; nor, when you consider it, does the actual country it was sold in.

A passing whale
Feb. 4, 2004, 1:09 AM

Recall the guy who was clotheslined below? Well, better to be him than this guy who had a passing whale leak all over his scooter.

Actually, it's a tough call, isn't it?

Fantastic delivery time
Feb. 3, 2004, 3:46 PM

Nice email today:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I ordered a carb from you on 27/01/04. It is the first time I have used you and was wary of ordering from so far away. Parts arrived on 03/02/04, very good quality, fantastic delivery time and good price. I would not hesitate to order from you again (saving for exhaust and disc brake!!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Great, thanks!
