I have already received calls to do work on these Asian bikes. They are around so look out!

I will not touch them.

Well, if you don't like their "custom restorations," you can always get a painting from their "parent" company, instead.

Dali, anyone?

The home page for the company is also not up to par, either. Crappy background images and poor design considerations are the yellow boots of web pages.

Oh, and here's the "subsidiary's" link.

I have a question... Is Vietnam going to run out of 1950s and 1960s-era scooters anytime soon? It seems they have an endless supply or something.

I posted this on the Lammy forums a short while back:

Interesting way to alert folks about the crappy asian restos. Tho he/she could have made it only a buck rather than two.

Hopefully they will run out of vintage scooters soon.

I'm sure it will happen in asia - as it has already happened in europe.
