Scoots and scootering / Re: Vietnam Vespa
« on: April 04, 2013, 04:48:11 PM »
I worked as a scooter mechanic for a few years in a shop that specialized in vintage Vespas and Lambrettas and I agree with Supertune. While I can't say that all are bad, I had never run across a good one. The only good thing I can say about the ones that I saw was the display of ingenuity in getting around fixing something properly. Shims, bondo, rust, shotty welding...all with a pretty paint job. The best was a speedo that didn't work, only to find out the needle was a piece of bamboo glued to the faceplate and the mechanical portion underneath completly rusted out. It wasn't long before we would just refuse to work on them due to the issues that would come up. It's a shame really.
