I have a blank original Piaggio MP3 key. I've not yet found a locksmith in London who has the right machine to duplicate the pattern of the master key onto the blank.

Has anybody managed to duplicate a MP3 key, if so which locksmith did it for you? I'd prefer one in the North, East or Central London.

If you live outside of London, it would also be helpful to have the technical name of the type of key or machine used to duplicate the key. I can simply ring up the locksmith and ask them if they have that sort of machine.

Thanks

Get in touch with jimh (of this parish) in the US, and send your blank to him along with the code from your code card, or a good photo of the working key.

OK, it'll cost postage - but Jim Hamilton does a great service for MV members.

Very, very few UK locksmiths have the right mill sizes for these.

I have the "key card" which has the numerical specification of the key - presumably somebody skilled in the art of key-making can produce the exact right key from this data alone?

Seriously, I'd prefer a supplier in London. This is the 19th biggest city on the planet - somebody is bound to have the right machinery round here!
