Vintage Scooter Repairs
When our original store opened on April 1, 1998, at the corner of 32nd ave and Pecos St in North Denver we had just one scooter for sale – a 1980 Vespa P200E (which was sold that day!). We had a backlog of vintage scooter waiting for us, though. At that time Sportique was the only place in the region providing repair services for vintage Vespa and Lambretta scooters. That type of work remains the passion of our business even if it’s no longer our life blood. We offer service for pre-1985 Italian models at a reduced labor rate and we are uniquely skilled. DanO Shattuck at our Denver location and Jarrod Stuhlsatz in Colorado Springs are each recognized nationwide for their talents while JP Gallo in Boulder has carved out a niche by specializing in Vespa smallframes.
Sportique performs a limited number of restorations per year and exclusively between the months of September and February. The Colorado Springs location is booking Lambretta work for the coming restoration season year-round and the Denver store is doing the same with Vespa work. Restorations are most often billed on thirds – a third up front, a third when the paint is complete and a third upon completion. Our restorations have earned acclaim at scooter rallies from coast to coast including at Amerivespa, the Vespa Club of America’s annual meet and at Lambretta Jamboree.
