Roadkill: March 2002

Shopcam
Mar. 27, 2002, 4:06 PM

The shopcam is back. This is quite amazing technology. Simply refresh your browser once a week, and a whole new picture of the shop appears! Incredible. In the back you can see the burgundy red Lambretta we've been featuring of late.

Turbine scooter?
Mar. 25, 2002, 10:44 PM

Looking to perk up your scooter just a wee bit? How about this:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Engine uses around 1 liter of fuel a minute at full blast. This turbine will go from idle to full thrust in about 3 seconds. It is very easy to start, and loads of fun. This turbine will blow bushes 50 ft away. Starting up the turbine sounds like being at the airport. Picture one show flames coming out of the tail pipe...

scootRS magic
Mar. 22, 2002, 10:36 PM

If you've ever wondered how we work our magic here at scootRS, well, someone has finally posted the answer:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Randall is the Buddha. That's all you need to know. Just remember the Buddha. And it takes 3 blue-mauve weiner dogs to make a martini dry sunny side up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Darn it. Here we thought no one would ever guess.

Scooter faq, n'est pas?
Mar. 21, 2002, 3:16 PM

Ahh, wondrous how a little bit of sun and a day off can improve your perspective on life. And a couple orders don't hurt either. Et Loran: N'inquietez-vous pas. J'ai deja parle avec votre pere ici, et tout est bien. (-Hmm, did we say that right? Ca fait longtemps depuis nous parlons francais quotidiennement.)


°°

Someone put up a wonderful scooter faq: List of Tools/Stuff to Carry. Locking your scooter for the city. How much air should I put in the tires? How often should I change my spark plug? Etc.

Closed
Mar. 20, 2002, 1:05 PM

Today we closed the shop for a break; everyone was tired from a lot of work lately. If you want to order the dropbars or disc brake system, there will be some delays.

°°

In the meantime, here's another pic from one scooter currently in the shop. We'll try to make it a continuing series.

Anarchists
Mar. 18, 2002, 6:29 PM

Remember below - 1, 2 - when some shops embarrassed themselves and lost customers by telling people nonsense about us? (Like the whopper that what we do is the same as what local shops here do? We like that one.) Apparently another competitor can't figure out how to make an honorable buck. -Or work those damn complicated rules of logic. Ah, well, increased our sales before. Princes are only in danger when anarchists stop throwing bombs, so we thank the little fella for acknowledging our status.

Scooter reviews
Mar. 18, 2002, 12:14 PM

A couple of nice emails today from a couple of cities:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm very excited about ordering a bike from you. I have two friends who've both bought restored Lambrettas from you [in Victoria] and I'm very impressed with the work you've done.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hey there ScootRS, there are 2 or 3 ScootRS bike buzzing around here in the Cincinnati area and countless bikes with ScootRS stuff on them. You have a pretty great reputation around here by word of mouth alone.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks. Always nice to hear from real people who know our work firsthand.

Scoot Quarterly
Mar. 12, 2002, 1:21 PM

Just received our copy in the mail of the Spring Scoot Quarterly magazine (now available at Borders). We see on page 7 that our ad looks atrocious, as though dipped in butter. Then on page 28, despite that, we learn that yours truly is a movie star. And if you wonder over to page 45, you'll see a scootRS electric start LIS200 featured in a helmet ad. And hats off to Sportique Scooters for their continuing series of scooter collector card inserts. Very nice. Can you guys do our ads???

°°

You've got to go to 2strokebuzz.com just to change the gears on their menu system. Even the speedo moves. Makes us laugh every time we do it.

Lambretta hydraulic disc
Mar. 9, 2002, 5:57 PM

Updated the hydraulic disc picture below so you can see the headset and a good overall shot.

°°

We just figured out that our internet bill for last year was over $1000. Can you believe it? All for the slowest line and the worst service in the world. Strange how that works.

Fade-to-pink
Mar. 8, 2002, 10:58 PM

A rare thing in our shop. Let us clasp hands, rejoice, and revel in the wonders of the world. It will likely get a 200cc motor. -And no, it doesn't have a fade-to-pink paintjob - are you kidding? -, merely a bad photographer with a cheap flash.

Vespa videos
Mar. 4, 2002, 3:14 PM

Our line is so slow we haven't even seen this, but you might want to check it out. Someone has posted his project in New Media, a little scooter movie: Quicktime hi-res 3.5mb, Quicktime low-res 1mb, Real Player hi-res. Wish we could see it…

Lambretta or Vespa?
Mar. 1, 2002, 2:09 PM

New month, new customer's scooters, but the same old question: Lambretta or Vespa? Black and racing green LIS with sports exhaust, or silvery-blue VBB with PX motor? We merely pose the question.
