My friend Keith LaBorde showed me a picture of his spare parts kit that he has for the Vespa which became increasingly interesting after I had striped the exhaust manifold stud and nut when changing my exhaust to a Mallossi and I had to wait a week to get a new $ 2.50 Stud and nut.
Therefore, I have decided to create a spare kit to include common parts such as:
- Variator nuts
- 3 common body panel screws
- Metal screw tabs
- Bolts for exhaust header
- Variator case bolts
- Brake caliper bolts
- Cotter pins for wheels
- Lock washers
Since I am not a mechanic, and have only worked on a Vespa since 2012, please take a moment and add any other suggested spare parts that I should have in this box other than the standard maintenance parts such as oil filters, air filters and so on. You can complete the form below and I thank you all in advance!

First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a
quick question in which I’d like to ask if
you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply
just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
