    Excellent, excellent ,excellent , what more can I say?.
    Had some minor damage to my vespa classic sportique. David got an excellent colour math and completed the job in record time. Do not hesitate to trust their professinalism.

  • Nick (Wednesday, July 27 16 02:53 pm BST)

    I had collaborated with Dave and the London Scooter body shop in the past, working on a colour scheme for a classic Vespa that was being restored. The results were fantastic. It stood to reason that
    I spoke to him again when I needed a set of Lambretta panels painted with very specific requirements. From initial discussion through to finished product, the London Scooter Body Shop team were
    excellent. No detail was too small or trivial and the image I had in my head translated perfectly to the finished item. Thanks team!

    Just a quick note to Thank Dave & his team for another Excellent job on my PX200. Dave sprayed my PX200 in a beautiful Viper Green and did some great panel work too. This is the second PX Dave
    has transformed for me, and I highly recommend his work and professionalism. Thanks again Dave to you & your team.

    Regards,
    DerekC

    Hi Dave, I just wanted to say how pleased I was with the work you did on my Lambretta. You really helped me when I needed it, did the job within what you promised and gave me a fantastic result.
    Thank you so much I can't recommend you guys highly enough :)

  • darren lewis (Thursday, June 02 16 10:00 pm BST)

    what can i say about the service these guys offer? less than 12 hours after contacting them by email, i receive a call from them, to discuss my options to get my beloved T5 fixed after she was hit by
    a thoughtless car driver, who bent the frame and forks.

    they talked me through the options i have and gave me hope that she will ride again.

    in the throw away world we live in, when most would say "scrap it and buy a new one"
    these guys care about your scooters and keeping them on the road, they understand that sometimes we get attached to these funny little bikes.and are dedicated to helping you keep your pride and joy
    in tip top condition.

    when it comes to time for my t5 to undergo major surgery,this is the team i will trust to work some magic.
    thanks guys for turning what started out as a crappy day into a better one!

  • Phil (Tuesday, April 12 16 01:46 pm BST)

    Dave did a great job on making good some damage to the paintwork and a few dents on my Vespa PX. The scooter now looks as good as new. A friendly, helpful and quick service was provided. I’ll
    definitely be using the London Scooter Bodyshop for any future work I want done. Highly recommended!

  • Maurice Johnson (Saturday, March 26 16 07:32 am GMT)

    David and his team restored the panelwork on my 1960 Raleigh Roma scooter.I have been restoring, as a hobby, motorcycles and scooters for about 10 years now and this is the finest work I have EVER
    seen! Absolutely stunning!
    David and Aaron couriered it to me and the packing was nearly as fine as the paintwork!
    I shall be knocking on his door on my next project for sure! Thanks David!!

  • Geoff Moran (Monday, January 18 16 01:45 pm GMT)

    I cannot commend Dave and his team highly enough for the work carried out on my Veapa Sportique restoration project. The finished result is absolutely brilliant.

    It was nice to deal with an honest and extremely professional company.

    Looking forward to re-assembling my scooter in the coming weeks.

  • Daniel Prince (Tuesday, December 22 15 06:02 pm GMT)

    Dave did a fantastic job on making my T5 classic look alive and beautiful again ...his work is impeccable ...I would advise anyone looking for resto,or accident repair to go to these guys...once
    again, thank you very much for an excellent job...happy nu year...

  • Anthony (Tuesday, December 15 15 12:18 pm GMT)

    Dave & his team did a fantastic job repairing my GTS Super after it was stolen & recovered. The bike looks just the same as when I picked it up brand new. The whole experience with the
    bodyshop was fantastic - they go to work on it immediately and I'm so glad I went there.

    Thanks Dave

  • Tim Frost (Thursday, November 19 15 04:30 pm GMT)

    Dave did a remarkable job on the bodywork for my 1968 Vespa Sprint. Smashed up badly by a truck, he invested more time than he needed in repairing past bad welding.
    It now looks absolutely stunning.

    He's the best bodywork specialist around, and a nice guy too.

    Thanks Dave.

  • wolf (Thursday, November 12 15 12:47 pm GMT)

    Superb job by Dave and his team on my Vespa GTS 300 after it got damaged in an accident with a van. My GTS looks as good as new now thanks to the excellent work done and the attention to details. The
    service was professional and courteous throughout the whole process. The quick turnaround was a plus.
    A huge thanks and I will be back for the annual service soon

  • Marcos (Wednesday, October 07 15 02:11 pm BST)

    Cant believe what a fantastic job Dave and the team done with my 1972 Primavera. I'm the envy of west London. Cheers Dave / Niall, I'll let you know when it's in the QPR club shop window!!

  • Mike (Monday, September 14 15 11:39 pm BST)

    Dave, thanks for the top quality job you did on my Li125 panels and frame, the build is now complete and looks superb, really pleased with the outcome. Thanks for the time and effort you put in to
    ensure a great result, much appreciated, you're a real craftsman..or should that be magician?!

  • Tim (Friday, June 12 15 11:49 am BST)

    I have been using the London Scooter Body shop for a couple of years now. Having used a few other scooter shops none come close to the level of expertise, quality work and customer service that Dave
    and his crew provide. They are credit to the scooter scene. I would highly recommend them.

  • Carl (Thursday, April 30 15 04:11 am BST)

    Can't thank Dave enough! He did an exceelent job on my PX200 after an accident. Dave took care of everything to do with the accident and dealt with the insurance company. My 2002 scoot looks brand
    new and sparkles in the sun now! Thanks again for a top job

  • Stephan (Tuesday, April 21 15 04:05 pm BST)

    Thanks Dave for sorting out my PX200 headset: I just called in and Dave carried out the repairs there and then. So helpful and all the crew are friendly. A High Street Piaggio dealer would have
    shaken their head and got a calculator out. Well worth my two hour trip each way.

  • Jack Gregory (Wednesday, January 14 15 04:28 pm GMT)

    Dave has been looking after my ET4 for over a decade and last year I decided to give it a revamp with a new paint job. As expected his work is excellent, the bike looks like new and with a full
    service to boot runs beautifully. Really great service from a genuinely helpful and approachable chap. If you\'re thinking about getting work done on your bike here you won\'t be disappointed.
    Superb.

  • Lee Platt (Thursday, November 27 14 04:36 pm GMT)

    Top bloke is Dave, Always has a smile on his face and very loves scooters which is a bonus. Always does a quality job on my scooter. I would never consider using anyone else.

  • Mick Stannard (Thursday, October 09 14 10:30 am BST)

    Collected my vespa gs150.Wow!!Didnt recognise it at first.The finished spray job was fantastic,all the dents gone too!!Dave,and the boys did a wonderful job.As good as ive seen anywhere.Im spreading
    the word.The London scooter Bodyshop,is where its at.Many,many thanks Mick Stannard.

  • Joe (Friday, October 03 14 08:43 am BST)

    Dave has been fixing my scooter for years. Amongst those repairs, for some reason quite a lot of punctures! He offers a truly awesome service and is always happy to employ years of experience. There
    are closer people who could do the work, but I'd much rather go the distance and visit Dave (and his trusty sidekick, Don). Thanks guys!

  • Colin (Saturday, August 16 14 08:00 pm BST)

    I was having trouble finding someone to respray my petrol tank for my Yamaha FJ1200. Dave said he would do it and they done a great job. Matched the paint brilliantly and the finish is superb. Many
    thanks Dave

  • Derek (Monday, June 30 14 12:24 pm BST)

    Thanks Dave for doing an Excellent job on my PX200 -Dave got the colour Exactly Right, and was kind enough to do some repair work for me too. I would highly recommend.

  • Andrew Green (Friday, June 27 14 05:44 pm BST)

    After a bad crash on my 2013 Vespa PX 150.
    I made the decision to let David handle the repairs rather than go through my insurance companies preferred repairer.
    The quality of the work and the service provided by David from start to finish was nothing short of excellent.
    David kept the bike until I had recovered from my broken wrist and was able to ride again.
    Once again thanks David

  • David C (Tuesday, June 24 14 09:47 pm BST)

    Took in my resto project VNA to Dave and he did a superb job - I cannot emphasize how good the quality of the paintwork is, and the attention to detail Dave applies. He will not settle for mediocre
    finish and will go back and re-do the prep work if necessary before finishing with the top coat.
    He sourced the correct original paint also.
    Dave's team also did a top job of replacing the rusted floor and pitted frame.
    I would say the results were better than when it rolled off the factory floor 55 years ago in 1959, seriously. The frame will last another 55 years.
    I thought the pricing was very decent as well.
    Rolls Royce job, thank you.

  • Darrell (Monday, March 17 14 10:47 pm GMT)

    Brilliant job on my vespa vnb couldn't be any happier..had loads of great comments on scooter thanks to Dave and Niall who built it

  • Stan (Saturday, February 08 14 11:41 am GMT)

    I know David since I bought my first Vespa in 2009. He always provides an excellent service for both - mechanical and bodywork. David and his team recently repainted side panels and a mudguard on my
    orange GTS and I am extremely pleased with the result. He even gave me some paint to treat small dents on the topbox. Highly recommended for all Vespa maniacs;)

  • Christopher Marino (Tuesday, November 19 13 07:54 pm GMT)

    Dave kindley came and collected my px for repair, he has just delivered it back and honestly, it looks better than when I bought it new earlier this year. His price is good as well. The type of guy
    you trust straight away and he proved it to me. Thank you

  • Tim Haigh (Thursday, November 07 13 12:26 pm GMT)

    My PX was knocked over in a parking bay overnight. It damaged the front fender and scratched up the left cowling. I went to see Dave initially to get quote to fix the damage but enquired about a
    personalised colour scheme.

    I got a nice 2 tone scheme. The scooter looked better than it did when It came out of the factory. The attention to detail was impeccable. Dave also fixed a flat spot in my carb in under 5
    mins.

    So thank you Dave & Don. I will be using you for all my future servicing needs.

  • Ana (Saturday, October 26 13 03:35 pm BST)

    Excellent work done repainting and restoring my Vespa. Finished to a very high quality, and looks better than if it were brand new. Excellent work and expertise.

  • James De Vile (Tuesday, October 15 13 12:30 pm BST)

    Dave restored my fit-for-scrap 1975 Vespa 90 frame back to a better-than-factory-finish. His welding, painting, attention to detail and almost obsessive perfectionism is incredible, and he was always
    happy for me to pop round and take photos every step of the way. Now I just need to find time to put it all back together..!

  • Chris Douce (Thursday, October 03 13 12:02 am BST)

    After an on-line recommendation I took my GTS down to Dave's workshop for a number of different issues that needed sorting: underside rust, a dodgy front shock and a corroded belt cover. I was
    incredibly impressed by his fine attention to detail, very clear explanations and a clear willingness to go the extra mile when it came to getting these jobs done. I am now the proud owner of a Vespa
    with a paint job that is better than the one it came out of the factory with. Cheers Dave! You're an artist!

  • Stephan Blight (Saturday, September 14 13 04:57 pm BST)

    I found this workshop on the internet and having read the reviews I took my PX200 there with running problems and a threaded mirror support. Potentially very costly. Dave sorted out everything
    promptly and showed a real passion for his work. Excellent service and advice. It is refreshing in this day and age to have a workshop where I can take my scooter for servicing and repairs knowing
    that the work is top quality and the friendly staff take great pride in their workmanship. I definitely recommend them and trust them. Thanks Dave.

  • Nick Ashton (Friday, September 13 13 07:27 pm BST)

    Second re-spray that Dave's done on my Vespa Sprint, as well accident repairs. This time 2-tone white and red.
    An absolutely beautiful job. Dave is a real perfectionist who pays attention to every detail, however small. Great customer service - nothing is too much trouble. Always prepared to take the time to
    chat through things - no matter how long it takes to decide on colours! Ii honestly, Wouldn't go anywhere else.

  • Dr. Daniel Brizell (Friday, August 16 13 02:11 pm BST)

    My LX125 was in a state following a careless pedestrian. She looke dhorribel and was rusting where the damage was. The guys managed to get her looking better than new. I asked for just a quick repair
    and was met with the reply "it's easier for us to do it properly" ,which just goes to show that they take pride in their job (not often seen nowadays).
    I can't recommend them highly enough and would definitely use them again.

  • Mel (Thursday, August 01 13 07:49 am BST)

    I wouldn't trust my Vespa repairs with anyone else, Dave and Don always do an amazing job, and will get it done as cheaply as possible. Most notably, Dave rode over to where it was parked and got my
    scooter started after an attempted theft had ruined the ignition so I wouldn't have to pay for a tow, really amazing - what an absolute star. I really couldn't fault the London Scoter Body Shop,
    would thoroughly recommend to anyone and everyone.

  • Paul McCormack (Saturday, July 20 13 10:07 am BST)

    Dave-sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but just wanted to say a massive thanks for the fantastic work on my front mud guard (as I am forever bumping it!!!) Great work, friendliness and pure
    dedication is what sets you apart from the others -thanks pal!!!

  • Phil Welch (Tuesday, July 16 13 06:08 pm BST)

    Dave serviced and sprayed 2 of my vespas. He explained exactly what needed doing and was finished when he said . Apart from being a thoroughly nice bloke, his depth of knowledge and passion for
    scooters is immense. Also his attention to detail and quality of work and service are rare qualities today. Thanks Dave (and of course Daves colleague whose name escapes me -sorry)

  • Damion Thompson (Monday, January 21 13 05:29 pm GMT)

    Wow! Dave is a truly passionate & committed professional. He's worked through snow and ice to turn my abused 2003 GT125 into a shining showroom new thing of beauty that turns head once more. What
    sets Dave apart is his enthusiasm, knowledge, and suggestions of the best thing to do for the budget you want to spend. I recommend Dave wholeheartedly and am already looking for a vintage barn find
    he can restore to it's full former glory for the summer. Thanks again.

  • Harry Horsley (Monday, December 31 12 11:12 am GMT)

    I just wanted to leave a comment to thank Dave for the amazing work on my Vespa GT125 over the past year. She was in a serious state of disrepair when I bought her and I cannot believe what Dave was
    able to do with her! He is the only man I allow to do any work, the engine now runs like a sewing machine and the bodywork looks brand new. Furthermore, the price is really reasonable and you get a
    nice cup of tea and thoroughly nice chat thrown in! I honestly can't recommend this place enough. Thanks a lot guys

  • John (Wednesday, December 12 12 10:01 am GMT)

    My GTV 300 was recently repaired after an altercation with a car that suddenly turned in front of it. Dave's work is brilliant. The bike looks better than it did when it was new. The repair was done
    in the time promised and at a very reasonable price. Thanks

  • Bill Dog (Tuesday, October 30 12 08:09 pm GMT)

    An amazing finish on all panels and easily better than the original Piaggio finish.
    Exceptional work all round.

    Well done all.

  • Andrew Aibangbee (Sunday, October 28 12 12:41 pm GMT)

    I took my Vespa GTS 300 in to get some scratches tidied up and I must say the results were amazing!I honestly can't tell where the original damage was done, the repair is that good.Dave is very
    knowledgeable and his passion for his work is evident. He even showed great customer care by sorting out an issue I had with my electrics. Top class and highly recommended.

  • Chris Goodchild (Thursday, August 23 12 09:46 pm BST)

    Got my vespa smallframe bodywork back from the London scooter body shop and it's absolutely stunning , it was in a appalling condition when I handed it to Dave but he's worked a miracle with it . I
    can't recommend them enough if you want a top notch paint job .so once again thanks so much for the great work . Regards Chris

  • Adrian T5 (Wednesday, August 08 12 12:57 pm BST)

    Great eye for detail - super finish and some very helpful mechanical advice (at no extra cost), also the price was very reasonable for London.

  • Joana Moreira (Monday, May 14 12 12:39 am BST)

    A year ago my vespa was knocked down by one of the duty managers of the place I live. He found The London Scooter Body Shop online and had the scooter repaired there. That's how I came across this
    fantastic workshop! I knew I found the place to take care of my vespa whenever needed. Last week I took over the scooter for servicing and some body work to remove a few scratches - the quality of
    work is always superb. Thank you very much Dave for taking good care of Leia (my vespa)!

  • Graeme Casey (Tuesday, May 08 12 11:08 pm BST)

    Picked up my scooter today. Think I may have picked up another one as it looks so good. Very chuffed indeed. Couldn't be happier with the service or the finish. Photos will be sent once 'Reg' has
    been put back together. Thanks once again. Graeme.

  • Pambos Patsalides (Friday, April 27 12 09:51 am BST)

    Dave & Don repaired the bodywork on my 6 month old vespa following a slight accident on Holloway Road. The work was done fast and efficiently and to an excellent standard. The vespa is as good as
    new. I would not hesitate to recommend their workshop. Dave was a pleasure to deal with and I will now be going back to him for any servicing and repair work.

  • Aaron James (Saturday, March 17 12 03:39 pm GMT)

    The London Scooter Bodyshop is top quality in every sense of the word. Their advise and skill is superb. Dave and Don take a great deal of care and time to make sure your scooter is the way it should
    be. My poor V90 had been used and abused as most have but now looks better than ever!

  • Col (Tuesday, March 06 12 07:34 pm GMT)

    Great work! My scoot looks as good as new and all at a very reasonable price. They repaired my GT at a fraction of the price quoted by those high street Vespa dealers. These guys obviously care about
    their work and it truly shows. I've only used them once but will not hesitate to use them again.
    Dave especially is a very genuine chap and will give you advice what is best for you which is rare in today's world.
