it took them about a month (could be more...) to get mine done. The auntie said it was due to some festive period so the painter needed more time for the job :sian:

 

I saw a scoot that has a nice 2-tone color scheme done at Soon Motor. Maybe u can check them out too...

tink some old vespa dun hev brake light. i dun have mine too. head light depends on your engine rpm as they use some sort of dynamo. used to have blinking head light or no head light at all if never ride for 2 weeks +. but after riding for arnd 10mins, the head light will finally appear.

 

neway, wat type of vespa u riding?

 

there are many vespa shops arnd. but for wiring, i tink u might wanna try ah joo's. coz his brother does the wiring of vespas there.

 

there is also a mly vespa shop behind jln bsr stadium. u might want to check it out.

i have 2 classic vespa scooter AN and AT plates..

as far as wiring concern, i have an uncle frm tong aik who can do wiring very neat and systematic.. as far as i know frm some other classic vespa owners who have done their wiring with ah-joo @ ubi, they say he has been using home appliances 3coil wires!! the malay guy at the jalan besar stadium cuts off certain system tt can give ur vespa alot of probs..

I don't dare mess around with the wires on my scoot.

 

I just changed from 6V to 12V but the headlight still flickers... is that the same for you guys with 12V systems?

try changing the bulb. if its the same, surely it must got to do with the wiring.

of course the original scooter wiring which has correct grade, or else the scooter's system will be hay wire!! n it would not carried it vintage value.

we can also use the mrt armoured wire, but will it function properly.........ha! ha! ha!!!!!!

hi guys! i also agree with u this big mouth aunty,she like to nag as is like lecturing childrem, but i did realised n admit that she mean well cause i was almost being cheated by one of the uncle shop. in fact she does not restrain us frm going to other shops but she always give advises n tips. in the end i still realised that this aunty from tong aik is the oldest shop in the scooter market, my father in law n my uncle who are in their 70"s (x-scooterist) know this aunty since she is a young girl helping in the shop for me i feel that i had become wiser n know more about scooter rather then being brain washed, the choice is still ours, but we must be able to tahan her big mouth talking. don"t get me wrong i'm not her god son.HA!HA!

Hi all,

 

Well she is not bad @ all....Its just tat she is more outspoken then others and her knowledge in the market and scooters is just way beyond the majority of us and other shops... So its always good to hear from an experienced person and interpret and make the final decision on ur own... :smile:

actually i'm not saying that auntie mary is bad or wat. dont get me wrong k.

 

she just wanted to advise those fellas who are newbies like me.

 

afterall, i have been buying accessories or servicing my vespa there. their workmanship is great but their service charge is a bit expensive, compared to others. but i don't mind paying extra for the work they put on.

i am not defaming the person or what so ever. it was just out of a curiosity to ask people here, whether they experience what i had experienced. i just want to know people's opinion, thats all.
