Roadkill: August 2009

Lambretta LD Vigano fork link covers
Aug. 30, 2009, 10:15 AM

Lambretta LD Vigano fork link covers We've updated our Lambretta LD fork link covers with our new Vigano badges. Very nice!

As a point of comparison with often overpriced but mediocre Italian items, the LD fork link covers from Casa Lambretta have tacky badges marketing their company name and are over $50! (And only chrome?) Ours are stainless steel that will never rust, have beautiful classic Vigano badges and are only $18.50/set!

What a difference: better quality and a huge savings for you.

If you have an LD or D, get a set. Also take a look at our very nice Lambretta LD seat covers for better quality and similar savings over Italian items as well.

(By the way, you can also get our Vigano badges separately if you want to fix up your own fork link covers, or use them anywhere really. They are 40mm. Only $7/set!)

Mean Streets (of Vietnam)
Aug. 26, 2009, 10:07 PM

Mean Streets Continuing our Vietnam street photos of things we see on the way to work, here are 3 scooter photos taken within 15 minutes of each other, all on the same street.

The 1st involves something too frightening to even consider, unless there is actually someone on the scooter in front of that board. The 2nd is something we don't want to slow down to know about, especially if it involves a restaurant we frequent, and the 3rd is a sad sight for any beer lover.

ScootRS goes racing again
Aug. 22, 2009, 10:46 AM

We've added a new racing section to our parts review pages alongside comments and press.

We are already sponsoring SRPRacetech's race team with our Lambretta tubeless rims, and we can now announce that ScootRS are also sponsoring Tony O’Brien and his Green Hornet Vespa 90SS in the BSSO.

Tony is also sponsored by Charlie Edmonds’ Performance Tuning - the scooter has 31hp! - and Kegra Racing. See a video of Tony in action.

For a bird's eye view of scooter racing, also check out this video:

Peruvian scooterists
Aug. 21, 2009, 6:42 PM

We've always dreamed of going to Machu Pichu, Peru. One day. In the meantime, Peru is coming to ScootRS. A nice email today after we added another shipping service for our friends in Peru looking for scooter parts:

Thank you very much. I just received my last order a few days ago. Everything came perfect and on time. I will be placing another order soon.

Great, hope the new service helps!

(ScootRS factoid: Peru is almost in our top 50 total sales list for the past year, just behind Panama. Go Peru!)

Russell Mitchell of Exile Cycles and a ScootRS Lambretta
Aug. 21, 2009, 10:35 AM

Russell Mitchell Exile Cycles A customer sent in an email with a photo of Russell Mitchell from Exile Cycles with his (our customer's) Lambretta scooter from us.

This was taken at the Glevum Stax 30th Anniversary weekend in Tewkesbury in the UK.

While so many Harley/chopper bikes are embarrassingly tacky - anything from Orange County, etc. - Russell Mitchell does great work, very cool and refined. Take a look at his site.

There's always next year...

Vespa GTS 300 Super seat covers We've added 3 more seat covers for the Vespa GTS 300 Super.

You can now get a regular GTS 300 Super seat cover in one of numerous colors. Or a twotone GTS 300 Super sport seat cover in numerous colors. Or a pinstriped GTS 300 Super seat cover, again in numerous colors.

That's on top of the GTS flag seat cover where you can choose your country's flag, or the Mod target, and our GTS 300 Super leather seat cover which at $98 is a tremendous deal over the $500+ Piaggio ones.

Of course, all of these types are also available as Vespa GTS 250 seat covers and Vespa LX seat covers and Vespa ET Seat covers.
