Servicing and Repairs
As well as offering fantastic quality bodywork and resprays, The London Scooter Bodyshop can carry out mechanical servicing and scooter repairs of your Vespas, Lambrettas and other scooters.
Our wealth of specialist knowledge ensures that you get a quick repair at a reasonable cost. We are able to obtain spare parts quickly and have access to many specialist scooter parts companies too in order to source parts for older "classic" scooters.
Where possible work will be done on the same day you bring the bike to us, but that is obviously down to other demands and part availability. Calling to check beforehand is always important to ensure we have space for you that day.
Mechancial repairs include...
Regular general servicing is essential to keep your scooter in top running condition. We are more than happy to undertake servicing work to include all the general steps such as oil and filter changes, roller and belt inspection (and change if required), brake pad checking and adjustments, brake fluid inspection and change, spark plug changes etc.
Rollers and Belts
Modern Vespa and other Piaggio scooters need to have their rollers and drive belt regularly changed. We are happy to inspect the condition of yours during a service or separately if required and to install replacements if needed.
Scooters do run through tyres pretty quickly and you will find the rear tyre needs replacing approxumately every 2500-5000miles (front lasts 2-3 times longer), depending on how you ride and what quality of tyre you use. If you think your scooter is about to need new tyres, give us a call with the make and model and we can recommend what tyres to use and get them in for you before you bring your bike down to us. Our prices are very competitive compared to other dealer too as our overheads are much lower than dealers with regular shop fronts.
Other Mechanical Scooter Reparis
We are obviously able to sort out other general scooter problems such as leaking exhausts, strange rattles, broken lights, leaking oil, poor performance etc. For free advice, give us a call before coming down and we will let you know what we think is going on first and the options for a solution.
