Went on ebay and wanted some parts for my p200 restore. 22 days later I got a crushed packed of shit from India. Bolting kit that has no reference in fact on my scoot.
Bottom line, you get what you pay for.. Most of it went in the trash can..
Very sad..

News flash, 95% of parts being sold by a certain company listed in your follow-up post are being imported from India. The other is much better IMHO, but still... Hey it is the nature of the beast. The fact that scooterists are cheap bastards coupled with the fact that we are dealing with machines that are 40+ years old for which many parts are not readily made in Italy = demand for Indian parts. So good luck dodging the bullet you "purists". That being said, I really don't feel all Indian parts are shite... Some are actually quite well made. Maybe it is not stamped with "Italy", but hey if it works and get the job done, then why not?

I ordered some shit from Italy once, it was complete crap... Just goes to show, buy from a scooter shop you know and trust. Motorsport fits that bill from me. Regardless of where the parts came from, I know they stand behind them.

Guess I will have to listen to some Barry Manilow and sit in my "magic" pyramid while picturing wild dolphins migrating before I call next time.

That's generous. Frenzy normally commands a premium or at least some beer.

scooterwest is great. Max knows his shit, and it seems like he has his inventory memorized.

Another good shop to look at is scooter mercato. David is very honest about where all of his parts come from. If you want to know, just ask. 99% of the time, the answer ISN'T India.

Max is a freaking human super computer with Vespa part #'s... I don't call so much anymore(Sorry that west-east ship time slays me Crying or Very sad emoticon), but I would call with a list of like 40 part #'s, I would rattle them off and like half of them he would actually finish the # before me..

Really good parts quality too.. The uncanny knowledge makes one wonder...

Internal ignition coil for 1977 rally 200, Ducati, 6volt
I'm lost, my stator was rewired before I bought scooter and i guess they coated the coils in shalac. Appears ingnition coil is bad. Anybody know where i can get one? Ive looked and cant find anything.

Any suggestions on how to remove shalac to change out coil?

Also, i have a p200, I heard i could use its stator..change to 12v rectifier and change to 12v bulbs.

According to scooterhelp.com I hve to change stator, flywheel and cdi. I thought that my ducati cdi was the same as my p.

I have a beautiful, original 77 rally 200 that we just rebuilt, but now down to this.

I think i would prefer to keep original, but will take any help or suggestions.

Thanks,

Melanie

You may want to cut and paste this into a new thread of it's own. You might get more response.

Re: Internal ignition coil for 1977 rally 200, Ducati, 6volt
All Vespa electronic ignitions operate at the same voltage, regardless of the bike's lighting/charging voltages. The Ducati ignition Rally uses the same internal feeder coil as a P200.

We are out of these, but I bet Motorsport has them. The CEAB part number is B.C.C. 306. I'm sure Max will know the Piaggio number.

Back to the subject at hand, good parts come from everywhere and crappy parts come from everywhere. Ebay does not discriminate with what they allow on their site. Good shops do discriminate with what they sell. The extra cost of dealing with reputable shops goes to pay for their knowledge and their ability to filter out the junk.

Scooter Shop has some good hard to find parts if you don't mind waiting six weeks for their shipping department to figure out how to put a box in the mail.
