Policies and Important Information
A Note on Product Availability
Many parts for vintage scooters are becoming scarce. A large portion of the parts supply comes from very small manufacturing facilities that make only a few items. In order to be profitable, these companies have to collect orders, sometimes for months, in order to have enough quantity to justify a production run. In addition, 90% of our stock comes from countries that have a very different concept of service and delivery speed than we're used to.
What this means to you is that sometimes certain products will be out of stock for long periods of time. This wait is just part of the "labor of love" that is vintage scooter ownership. We ask for your patience; when you're waiting for a part to come in, so are we!

Also, parts for vintage scooters are becoming more difficult to locate as manufacturers discontinue production. As supply diminishes, our cost to obtain these parts for you increases.
