Sorry for the rant but here it is!

Tell everyone you know NOT TO BUY CRAPPY ASIAN "RESTORED" VINTAGE SCOOTERS ONLINE!

THEY SUCK SUCK SUCK.

While your at it, tell them NOT TO BUY NEW TWIST N GOS UNLESS THEY HAVE LOCAL DEALER SUPPORT!

I am sick of talking to fools in denial needing their "restored" or "new" scooters fixed.

It's too late for them but YOU can make the difference in others lives! Give them the tip of a life time.

Ahhhh.. It's warmed up, the sun is out and you're getting phone calls from people with broken "deal" scooters who want them fixed for $25?

Dealer support trumps brand and price any day in book. No dealer, no support.

The other tip is to put a little fuel stabilizer in the tank before you put it away for the winter. Saves that $75 carb cleaning in the spring.

I was thinking, does this advice apply to ASC rebuilt scooters?

Those SIL scooters look pretty sweet and priced the same as a People 250. Of course, they'd probably require more care and feeding than a Kymco, but so cool.

SIL Lambrettas are a step up from Nam restos. But still toward the bottom.

Ask David about them.

Also, those are NOT REBUILT as claimed. They are NEW.

My tip:

There is nothing you can do to improve the performance of a scooter with just a hammer or a drill. No matter how many speed holes you drill in a stock exhaust or airbox your scooter will not go any faster.

Here I was thought that you could fix everything with a hammer...

All kidding aside, the $10 soft blow (dead blow?) hammer that I picked up is one of the best tool investments that I've ever made.
