Scooter Shops-August 11, 2010

Normally I wouldn't post something like this, but I've been amazed at the poor service I've been receiving while ordering parts from the big scooter shops. One place messed my order up the first time and sent the wrong parts. They tried a second time, and since I was in a hurry, I paid for the 1-3 day priority shipping. It took them five days to fill the order. I believe the whole affair took almost 3 weeks from my first order. Another shop's online system was down and everytime I called I got the "we will call you back. If you don't hear from us by 5pm, call us back." This happened for 3 days straight. Do I really have to beg you to take my money?

Personally, I've found ScooterWest to be quick, accurate, and reliable.

Pride of Cleveland has also been extremely helpful when I have called or stopped in.

To be fair I have not ordered from these folks, so I don't know, but I've heard good things.


  1. Hey there,

    Great to find a GS centric blog! I have a '60 which had everything original on it besides the seat cover, AFAIK. Doing a 12v conversion so I won't need the battery assist, but it has taken a backseat to all the other things in life that are more important these days.

    Anyhow - looking forward to seeing the progress, and hoping it inspires me to pull mine from the back of the garage, finish it up, and ride it.

  2. Totally agree with you Jaime. I just ordered some GS parts from They were super quick!
    I've heard great things about scootermercato too.
    And of course, Uncle Phil at Pride of Cleveland is awesome.

    And by the way, Love this Blog!! You've actually inspired me to start my own. Thanks!!

  3. Nice to meet you both. Good luck on the scootering.
