New scooter stuff

Our new tig welder A Lambretta we're working on A VBB in Audi aviator gray pearl Robert in Sweden

If we've calculated correctly, that's a 4000 word post so far.

Just to verbalize: new shop machinery, two new scooters we're currently working on, and one old guy in Sweden. Well, a very cool old guy, that's for sure :-)

Green Hills of Africa

Maybe what we should all do is take a Vespa with sidecar and ride across Africa!

Or we could let someone else do it and just read about it on the internet.

A shockingly beautiful Vespa VBC Super
Jun. 6, 2006, 8:41 PM

shockingly beautiful Isn't this Vespa VBC beautiful? So clean and sharp looking, and drives wonderfully! We just finished it for a customer. And with 10 inch wheels, leather seats, some nice extras throughout, and a very zippy 5-port motor 100% rebuilt in our shop with our standard all new gears, crankshaft, mainshaft, 7-spring clutch, 12v CDI flywheel, 5-port cylinder kit, etc., - well, you won't find a better deal on a showroom-quality vintage Vespa anywhere in the world. (A VBC with new 5-port motor costs only $3019, while a VBB with the same is just $3344.) It's like a brand-new 1960s Vespa, only better.

With so many “Western” shops these days merely importing and reselling overpriced bulk-restored scooters that come from who-knows-where in Asia, we're very happy to be able to offer customers the ability to deal directly with a shop that actually restores scooters inhouse, one-by-one, and thus does yours firsthand for you, with exactly the colors and options you want, and knows it inside-out down to the last bolt.

A bit like the old days, we guess. Funny you might have to go global to get that old-school, hometown quality these days, isn't it?
