Hi to all not sure this is a new topic as I am probably not the only one who has lost the red or brown key for my Vespa although problem free at the moment I am bothered that I will need it before long and of course if I ever want to sell can anyone advise on the best practical solution whereby it will not cost me all of my xmas bonus that I worked my nuts off for.


cheers and Xmas merryment to all

So poor, he couldn't pay for the free punctuation.

There are alternatives for this, but being a first time poster a lot of us are reluctant to advise due to the possibility it is a stolen scooter. Anyone on here know you IRL? If someone can vouch, I would be willing to make a suggestion.

Go to an auto locksmith who can clone Fiat/Lancia keys. They'll be able to clone your service key - the going rate seems to be ~35. OK, so you won't have a brown master key, but at least you'll have a spare.

If you can't find a locksmith who is any help - I'd suggest you contact AF1. They can clone your blue key for you.

Thanks all for your reply's. Some very useful and I will give them a try. I include some light punctuation now that the cost does not seem to be to steep!! Happy Holidays

You lurk under two different names?
