Roadkill: March 2012

Sales up 40% this month! Recent ScootRS customer reviews about why...
Mar. 31, 2012, 2:44 PM

Sales for the month were up 40% over the same period last year! And it was the best March in our history! A big thank you to all our customers around the world.

Here's a quick customer email recently about a quick parts shipment by us:

Thanks for the excellent service... the disc brake arrived from yourselves to the UK in 2 days!! 

And another about our Lambretta gas/petrol dual tanks in stainless steel:

A1, spot on thank you, excellent quality and fit.

And about our seat covers:

Are you going to remake the Vespa GS150 seat cover soon? Cause we are looking for one for a restoration we have at the shop. And we appreciate the quality of your seat cover.

Yes, we'll be making more soon! Our various seat covers truly are a fantastic deal compared to overpriced and often poor quality Italian repros.

And another about parts for a scooter from us 5 years ago:

Can you supply me with SX200 panels ready painted with emblems? They are to go on a scooter you suplied on 28/02/2007, order no: -----. I have just ordered the Lambretta anti-dive upgrade and other parts for it.

This is the best Lambretta I have had since my TV200 I had in 1966 when I was 17!  

Thanks for your prompt & efficient service, best regards.

Glad the scooter has served you so well. Nice little upgrade for you to make too. 

Thanks for all the emails!

Please let others know on forums who have never ordered from us and are still paying WAY too much for lower quality items just because from Europe (though often made in India or China). There are so many uninformed or deliberately fake "reviews" and warnings out there about "Asian" parts (usually by people who work or overpaid at another shop) so firsthand customer reviews like the ones above are incredibly helpful to fellow scooterists.

Vespa hydraulic-style clutch side lever to match disc brake kits
Mar. 14, 2012, 9:47 PM

We sent out an email to customers of our Vespa hydraulic disc brakes about our new matching Vespa hydraulic-style clutch side lever:

Vespa hydraulic-style clutch side lever

Here was part of the first reply back, someone in North America:

I want to say that I love the Vespa disc brake system, yes I had to adjust it a little but very little and let me say, wow, what an awesome product. Keep up the good work, I am super satisfied and extremely happy. Thanks again for a great product.

We've heard the same thing from so many of our Vespa (and Lambretta) disc brake customers over the years, thanks. Always very happy to hear it again :-)

A Vespa 150 VBB scooter we restored for a local customer:

Later we checked in with the owner to see if everything was OK, if any problems. Reply:

It gets too many stares. We took it to Chao Bella restaurant and two Italian couples were outside asking to take pictures on it.

Thanks

Nice oxblood red leather seats!
