Hello,
Have you had a good experience buying Piaggio/Vespa parts or accessories directly from a particular Italian parts seller (ebay.it) or Italian web site?

I've had 20 years of good experiences buying directly from European & Asian shops, and from ebay sellers. I've learned that their postal services are as reliable as is the USPS. One incident in 20 yrs - and it was due to my local post lady.

Who in Italy (or Spain or France) could you recommend to me?

Thanks, O.S.

Next best thing is buying from scooterpartsco.com. George has a "in" over there and his prices are reasonable.

I've never had problems with EBay.it. Haven't tried anything else yet.

Just remember that buying from other than your local dealer cuts their profit and could be the reason so many dealers are throwing in the towel.

I buy all the parts for my Vespa from the dealer for EXACTLY that reason. I also like Lou (the owner) as a person and want to help him where I can. For the BMW I am less loyal about where I get my parts and accessories.

I buy from my local dealer Vespa Metro when I can. He has often suggested I go direct to Scooterwest if he doesn't believe he will be competitive, which I have done successfully. The combination works.

I'm still waiting on my Italian part ( a windscreen ) from ebay... seriously, it's been a MONTH. Since when has Italian government been anything but bureaucratic?

I've bought from Emporio dello Scooter in Italy and Harry Scooters in Spain and of course SIP in Germany and all have been good.

local dealer is 3 hrs away. costs more to go there then mail order.
Also supporting businesses like scooterpartsco is just as important as a "local" dealer. they support us by having inventory on hand and great pricing for parts and accessories. Also offering other parts equivalent or better than OEM and at less costs as well.

Hello John,
I checked what you have for sale. You have a different scooter.
What overseas shop did you use, please?
Thanks, O.S.

OAD exactly. Using Motovista's online shop is considered "local IMHO. He's got great prices and a lot of stock 8)

Looking for a Piaggio top case for my 2018 Liberty 150i.
Americans want $450 for the case and mounting.....sells for @ 110 Euros overseas.

Unless you can find someone to fill it with other parts you need and send it to you that way, you are going to pay a lot more for shipping just the top case because of the size of the box.
We sell them for about $200-240, but that's because they are so freaking expensive to ship from Italy.
