Lambretta LD parts
May. 31, 2002, 12:54 PM

For you LD fans, we've added some more parts pics to the LD section. In fact, trying to add in any missing parts pics onsite now. Slowly, slowly...

°°

Added a new coil-cdi unit for PX and Lambretta Indian cdi systems, just like the Ducati one which we've stopped selling. This one is the exact same, but much cheaper! Works great. What more can you ask?

Electric start Lambretta SX200 review
May. 28, 2002, 6:25 PM

As you may already know, there was a nice review last month in Scootering Magazine of an electric start sx200 we did last year. It was featured on the cover in the lower left, and had a two-page spread inside with many photos:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[T]here are some desirable models of vintage scooters out in the Far East such as genuine Lambretta SX200s. The only problem was how to get them back to the west in a saleable roadworthy condition after they have spent upwards of 30 years in the many hands of the Vietnamese bodge fairies. This is something that Randall from ScootRS.com has been trying to tackle from his business based in Saigon. [....] The clever bit is marketing this service on the Internet so that a potential buyer can choose the paint scheme and the mechanical specification of their scooter. This is exactly the situation with the scooter you see before you, which present owner John Tipping ordered over the Internet to his individual specification, even down to the layout of the two-tone paintwork. [...] The extra that made John's bike really worth a look though, was the electric start conversion. It was developed by the mechanics at ScootRS along the lines of that which Servetta had been working on in the 1980s....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Conclusion after test-driving it? “the engine rode fine and the gears worked perfectly.”

Read and see the complete review on our reviews page, where we have also added some scans of the previous Scoot! Quarterly review.

OK, now off for some swordfish for dinner...

Schlitz and scooters
May. 8, 2002, 4:30 PM

Schlitz Malt liquor, some advanced scooter knowledge, and a big electric saw: you judge if this is a good combination.

Heaven and hell scooters
May. 1, 2002, 1:28 AM

Without a doubt, this is the scooter Lucifer himself drives around on in Hell, tending the bonfires, asking, “Is everyone toasty?”

°°

And this, in contrast, would be a scooter scene from Heaven.

-One sees, no doubt, how very ecumenical we are...
