I just installed an Arrow exhaust and it's louder than expected (I haven't even removed the db killer / baffle).  Sounds more like a small dirt bike :-)53525ANN + 53072MI…Continue

My old 2009 GTS had long mirrors.  My new Supertech had short mirrors and better styling (plus left mirror was reverse thread direction).Ordered new CM261901 + CM261902 which are the new styling but with the older longer length from a Primavera (2015?) and they fit nicely :-)  Much better vision, highly recommendedSee More

Hi Louis

Contact Frank at Vespa House and he will send you down the road to where he gets them done in Collingwood, otherwise Roberto The Vespa Wizard in Moorabbin can help you.

Cheers Julie

Hi Louis,

If you are wanting to come to the National Scooter Rally, you will need to make that decision now as the Organiser has a cut off date and is asking for all registrations to be paid now sorry.  We do have room to fit you into where the club members are staying if you want to join us.  It is $100 for 2 nights and the registration is $50 paid to Goetz the Rally Organiser.

Please let me know via admin@melbourne.com.au a.s.a.p if you would like to join us.

Otherwise, hope you can join us for one of the great rides coming up :)

Cheers Julie
