Specialising in geared scooters, the business focuses on a range of key services for the scooter rider, enthusiast and daily commuter wanting to enjoy the quality and fun that a real vintage Italian scooter brings. The team at Retrospective can carry out servicing, mechanical repairs, engine re-builds and full restorations, plus there is a wide range of quality hard to find replacement parts available for bikes from the 1950’s onwards.
With a reputation built on great service, first class advice, honest pricing and attention to detail you can rest assured that your vintage scooter is in good hands.
If you are looking to buy a vintage scooter then our Scooter Showroom is the best place to start. Here you will find detailed photographs of each and every classic scooter we have available that's ready to ride away. Three to four times per year we travel across Europe bringing back original vintage Italian scooters that we then restore to their former glory – keeping things as original as is possible, or customising and upgrading to our customers special requirements.
Whether you are after a Vespa GS 160, a Vespa GTR or perhaps a small frame Vespa Primavera there are plenty of scooters to choose from. We also have a large servicing, maintenance and repair facility too so you can benefit from our extensive knowledge of the Vespa and Lambretta range. All our work is fully guaranteed.
