Lambretta SX200 and dyno results
Aug. 29, 2003, 2:13 PM

Exhibit A: A stock SX200 has 11hp.

Exhibit B: scootRS all-new 200cc motor option for Lambrettas with our 28/30mm PWK-type carb and our tuned exhaust. (Including a hydraulic disc brake, this is only $680 on a 200cc model or $1025 when upgrading completely a 150cc model to 200cc.)

Exhibit C: An email from a customer:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I just got back from seeing [major UK shop], where my SX200 was put on the rolling road/dyno to be tweaked a bit now that it's run in.

THE RESULTS WERE PRETTY DAMN GOOD.

15.2bhp at 7,200rpm - (approx +35% on standard SX200) not bad eh!

TOP SPEED 85MPH !!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Conclusion: What the heck are you waiting for? Order the scooter, order the pipe, order the carb!

Her tanned back
Aug. 28, 2003, 9:04 AM

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's hot. A motor scooter buzzes up ahead on the footpath. The rider stops and plants her feet on the ground. Her tanned back is criss-crossed with the wanton, lacy straps of a tiny black top. Stretching her arms, she lifts off her helmet, shaking out thick, wavy hair that bounces down her back. This may be the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen. Girl astride scooter in a molten Roman summer.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You see, I knew the World Scooter News section was a worth the time and effort.

GP200

Some current work in the shop. Tuned exhaust, disc brake, dropbars, very burgundy red, and yet...looks a little different from our usual fare?

GP200 anyone?

Aug. 19, 2003, 10:00 PM

We've got no idea what it says, but the Japanese scooter magazine Scooter Style reviewed a 5-port, 10 inch wheeled VB1 we did. We've added it to our Reviews page, under Magazines.

5-port cylinder and more
Aug. 16, 2003, 9:01 PM

All-new motor parts (gears, mainshaft, CDI flywheel, etc.), including an awesome 5-port cylinder, tuned exhaust, and our PWK-type flatslide carb kit. A classic model, but with a reliable, powerful motor! Style without the slug. (Hmmm, a new motto for us?) Get it while it's hot.

Montreal bagels and Schwartz's smoked meat
Aug. 16, 2003, 8:52 PM

Oh, heart, be still!

A customer is teasing us with the thought of sending over some bagels and smoked meat from Montreal. Could it really be true?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There are tourists who hear of Schwartz's when they plan their trip to Montreal. There are Montrealers who moved out of town and dream of coming to this place as soon as they get off the plane. And then there are the rest of us and we're just smiling, or licking the tastiest grease in the world off our lips. When you come into this town remember two things: Montreal bagels and Schwartz's smoked meat. That's all. They are never as good anywhere else.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(More for the ignorant masses here.)

Lambretta LD
Aug. 6, 2003, 6:28 PM

Busy, busy, busy. Here's a very rare and special scooter these days: an LD with a ton of new and good used parts straight from Vittorio Tessera's warehouse in Italy. More on our Available Now page. In the background you can see a white and blue SX200 being finsihed. We've also just sold a similar one we had listed, but there are still a couple semi-finished Lambrettas on the Available Now page. -Or custom order like everyone else does. Also take a peek at the New Parts page, as we have a couple new items today.
