Glad I didn’t shell out $100 at the release party: Adidas Originals “Vespa PX” tennies are down to $50 at 6pm.com. (thanks Heather!) Speaking of shoes, Converse recently came out with All-Star armored-toe work boots. Finally, you can ride in All-Stars without fear.
More great holiday sales, this time from Scooterworks and Corazzo. Philip McCaleb of Genuine/Scooterworks and Bradford Duval of Corazzo, both actually CALLED us (on the PHONE!) to ask us to hype these sales, and they both promise you’ll never see better deals… Scooterworks Chicago’s Secret Santa Sale is this Friday and Saturday, McCaleb promises lots […]
POC’s having a Black Friday Sale. Motorsport and Scooterworks have big sales coming up too, more info on Monday!
Slaughterhouse XV is this weekend in Chicago, a fact so obvious to me that I didn’t bother posting it until now, which is sort of irresponsible of me, sorry. Who’d have known back when we joked about never making it to “Slaughterhouse 5” that the rally would endure and grow for 15 years. It’s changed […]
After teasing America with mostly unobtainable European tidbits, the Adidas Originals/Vespa clothing and shoe line is hitting the U.S. in full force with five launch parties at U.S. Adidas Original stores over the next week: Berkeley, CA July 23 6-8 PM Chicago, IL July 23 6-8 PM Georgetown, DC July 23 6-8 PM Miami, FL […]
Late notice again (sorry!) but check out Polini Cup Moped, Scooter, Pocketbike, Goped and Gokart racing live this Saturday and Sunday on MopedTV. The live coverage from Tom Dash Memorial Speedway, Atwater CA, starts at 1pm local time and features interviews, race coverage, and giveaways from Corazzo. Corazzo’s also offering a free t-shirt with all […]
There’s been some confusion and angst lately on the Chicago lists about changes at Scooterworks and parts availability. Until recently, both the local dealership (and its service department) AND the catalog internet/mail-order business were located on Damen Avenue and called “Scooterworks USA.” Starting last month, the parts business, Scooterworks USA has moved to a new […]
Piaggio’s latest Vespa Vintage catalog is available online. The PDF download doesn’t seem to work, but you can peruse it in Flash. The first “Vespa Vintage” catalog came out around the same time Piaggio returned to the U.S., and sent many Vespaphiles running to their local VVRS (remember those?) expecting to find some of the […]
8738Over the past few years it’s been great to see scooterists finally getting more concerned about safety and wearing protective gear, and it’s hard to say which is the cause and which is the effect, but at the same time we’ve seen more scooter-specific gear becoming available. You could argue that there’s no specific difference […]
Another sweet-looking new pipe from Pinasco, but as Matt points out, they really might want to re-think the name.
Three “Wacky Races”-style ads for Tucano Urbano scooter accessories featuring TU mascot Tuka Tukanji. They’re at least a couple years old, but we’d never seen ’em before. Too bad Tucano Urbano isn’t available in the U.S., they make some great stuff, but it’s expensive, and even moreso when you have to pay shipping from Italy. […]
Veloce’s A-Z of Popular Scooters and Microcars is on sale for half-price. It’s pretty expensive regularly, but at that price, it’s a must-have, especially if you’re getting excited about Tatas and Smarts lately. 2sb reviewed it here.
Saigon Scooter Centre sent out an email to announce the availability of some new vintage scooter accessories. Mirrors, crashbars and other useless adornments may not be your style. But at least this is not a post about another Maxi-Scooter or clone scooter trend. Mods of the world rejoice. You can now have a nice chrome […]
Genuine’s new line of 1:12-scale die-cast Buddies was just unveiled, and those ingrate MB’ers are already finding reasons to nitpick, heh. I saw the samples, and they look great. Not as great as a 1:12 Blur would, mind you, but great. Scooterworks lists them as “backordered” but it’s more like “preordered,” they’re due in very […]
ScootRS’ long-promised Lambretta inline front disc brake is now available. I love to open their RSS feed and try to identify “Today’s Featured Item” without looking at the caption.
