bgm PRO Sport seat Vespa sport seat

bgm PRO “Sport” sports seat made by Nisa Italy

Based on the very popular Nisa 'Sport 20' seat, we have designed a sports seat for the classic Vespas in the bgm design and had the seat manufactured by the Italian seat manufacturer NISA as a bgm version. The new bgm PRO sports seat is available for Vespa Largeframe and Vespa Smallframe and is available in two versions:

Sport seat with authentic look

The BGM Pro Sport seat has a beautiful Alfatex cover (embossed waffle pattern) on the sides and rear and is also available with gray piping. The seat surface also has a smooth cover with parallel longitudinal seams. For a waterproof surface, these are embossed, not sewn. The appearance of the BGM Pro Sport is thus strongly reminiscent of the classic seat humps of the 70's and conveys a cool race flair even when standing.

You can also find the seat in the Scooter Center Seat configurator, have a look at the seat on your Vespa model:

Sports seat suitable for everyday use

In practical use, it is very easy to ride, despite its sporty everyday look. The bench has a pleasantly sized foam padding on which even long tours are fun. A nice feature is the completely padded hump. This provides good support when riding solo, but can also be used as a pillion seat if necessary.

Modern magnetic closure

Another intelligent feature is the magnetic closure of the bench by means of an extremely powerful neodymium magnet. This means that the bench can be opened easily with one hand, but still holds better than many a classic hook fastener. The biggest advantage of the magnetic technology is that the bench rests rattle-free on the supplied fixing plate, which is firmly screwed to the frame. The magnetic force is so high that uninformed people who try to open the seat assume that it is locked.

Top quality - handmade in Italy

The bench frame is made of impact-resistant and durable ABS plastic. The cover is stapled all around and thus very securely and permanently fastened (as opposed to just gluing it on as is usually the case). The frame is equipped with six rubber pads. This distributes the load very well over the entire frame and the bench gives a very solid and full seat feeling. The bench hinge is typically Nisa very solid and sturdy and therefore very resilient. It is also screwed in place and can be replaced (in the highly unlikely event of a defect). Available for Wasp Smallframe and Largeframe (Largeframe models with high tank (GS160, SS180, Rally180 / 200 need the flat tank of the Sprint / PX models without oil tank)

CONCLUSION: Beautiful flat seat with great racing look but touring qualities!

Note for the Largeframe version and Vespa PX For PX models only suitable for tank versions with hinged lid. Not suitable for Lusso models / vehicles with oil tank. Order seat:

The idea of ​​castor oil

Castrol was founded by Charles “Cheers” Wakefield under the name “CC Wakefield & Company”. In 1899, Wakefield left his job at Vacuum Oil to start his own business selling lubricants for railways and heavy machinery. In the early 20th century, Charles developed an interest in two new motorized vehicles: the automobile and the airplane. His company began developing oils for the new engines. These oils had to be thin enough for cold starting and at the same time thick enough to function at high temperatures. The company's researchers found that the problem could be solved by adding castor oil, a vegetable oil made from castor seeds. They called the new product " Castrol ". Used in 1919, John Alcock and Arthur Brown Castrol oil on the first non-stop transatlantic flight in history.

Heiko's idea with Castrol sponsorship & fast to slow

CC Wakefield not only invented a new type of motor oil, but also a new way to attract potential customers to his product: sponsorship. The Castrol name appeared on banners and flags at air races, car races and speed record attempts. Over time, the brand name of the motor oil became far better known than that of the company's founder / company. This circumstance led to the renaming of "CC Wakefield & Company" in 1960 to Castrol Ltd.

I have been riding Vespa and Lambretta for over 32 years. It all started with a red Vespa PK50S, which, bought second-hand, was already waiting in my parents' garage for my driving license. But it quickly was too slow for me. The first tuning measure was to fit an expensive 50km / h exhaust. But it didn't do much good, the moped boys were still flying past me left and right. So I sold it and became interested in a black PX 80 Lusso, which was very expensive in insurance at the time. During the test drive, the gears always flew out. But I was happy to have my mother so far as to be allowed to buy me this scooter…. besides, my father was on a business trip and didn't know anything about the new "80". So: now or never! So the scooter was bought with this “little hidden flaw”.

ROLLERSHOP, Scootering & Mods, Scooterboys and Scooter Scene

We all know what was wrong with the engine: the reason for the uncontrolled gear changes, what the worn “round” gear shift cross. The nearest Vespa dealer wanted DM 700 for the change, but that was out of the budget for my skilful scooter update. I got in touch with other scooter riders. One of them had been skateboarding for the last week and was now suddenly motoring on a brand new Vespa PX 80 Lusso. A month later I met him again, sitting in a suit and polished leather shoes on his Vespa, now plastered with mirrors and chrome parts. The next time I met him, half of his scooter was missing and on his head too. Instead of fine leather shoes and a suit, he was now wearing red boots up to his knees, camouflage trousers and a bomber jacket. On his head, all that was left of his “popper mane” was a little horn of hair that fluttered listlessly in his face after he had taken off his helmet. Somewhat irritated, I asked him if he had had an accident with his scooter and why he looked so funny. He said he was now Scooterboy and the scooter was a CutDown! He had probably discovered it before, for me it was new at the time: the MOTORETTA, the Scootermag and still in black and white. And so the evil took its course. Now the 80s also became too slow for me somehow, schoolmates with DT, RD, MBX & Co and even some mopeds were faster than me. So if I change the gearshift anyway and take the engine out and disassemble it, I might as well make the bike a bit faster… In the meantime I had also discovered the ROLLERSHOP catalog and SCOOTERING. I was so fascinated by the custom paint jobs in the glossy magazines that I sat down in my 80s “children's room” and dreamed of great paint jobs and scribbled a few of them on paper. Yes, laugh, these are my collected works:

Castrol sponsoring with the “Castrol Vespa Racer

So somehow my dreams regarding the custom paint job didn't really come true, so I later took the initiative and asked Castrol for a sponsorship. To be honest, I'm a bit uncomfortable about this right now: I was quite sure I had done this at the age of 16. But according to the date of the letter to Castrol, which I found in my “Scooter Scene box” , I was already a bit older and at that time already doing my community service.

Unfortunately I don't have the drawings of my“Castro Racer"With 20 hp and targeted 130-140km / h anymore. I must have enclosed the drawings with the letter to Castrol, Motorsport Department. I found this test printout with corrections from the letter. But I certainly didn't write to UHU and NUTELLA, MÜHLEN KÖLSCH? Maybe! I don't know any more… But the gentleman from Castrol was very nice, invited me to the IFMA in Cologne and, after a short conversation in the Castrol truck, pressed a few Castrol stickers into my hand. If anyone from Castrol is reading along here: my offer still stands! This is my Augsburg Vespa T4, for example:

Vespa Gentleman Giro Markus Mayer with 50cc Vespa and suit



Markus André Mayer, 44 years old and a passionate Vespa fan from the beautiful Allgäu region.

Vespa Gentleman Giro Markus Mayer with 50cc Vespa and suit

In 2017, Markus was able to combine 3 of his passions (Vespa, charity work and social media) into one Giro Germanica to unite them. With the help of Vespa clubs from German-speaking countries, he was able to generate over €25,000 in donations for the German Children's Cancer Foundation's Forest Pirate Camp during a 42-day fundraising ride. Of course, the Scooter Center so what part of his Giro Germanica And we supported the campaign.

Now Markus has something new in mind, and the Scooter Center is supporting him again. It is a matter of the heart for us! This time we are the main sponsor and support and sponsor his new mission extensively.

Here on the Scooter Center blog, we will keep you up to date on this year's mission over the next few months. We start today with the first presentation of the VESPA GENTLEMAN GIRO, look forward to an interview and to making of the engine we are building for Markus.

Vespa Gentleman Giro Markus Mayer


Markus has decided to dedicate the entire year 2021 full time to fundraising for children with cancer. He will start with the 3 initiatives to raise funds for 40 cancer organizations in 40 countries across Europe:

  • Great European fundraising race
  • 10 relay races in different countries
  • 1 World Record Poker Run(explanation)

So for 2021 he is planning a much bigger action: within 8 months he wants to unite the whole European Vespa scene by a big fundraising ride around whole Europe with several linked actions to raise at least 250.000€ for 40 national cancer foundations and care centers. To complete this heartfelt project, he will need about 14 months in total. Through various large travel projects, such as his

  • 80 days around the world in 2018,
  • USA Crossing in 2017,
  • or European Tour in 2014,

it was already possible for him to gain a lot of experience and, above all, to make many contacts with scooter riders all over the world.

The contacts to the national clubs throughout Europe make it possible to identify suitable donation targets in advance, such as the Liga contra Cancro in Portugal, and to coordinate the planned measures and events in the respective countries. During the trip, Markus plans to set 3 Guinness Book of World Records and thus also draw the interest of the public and the media to the facilities, clubs and the fundraising campaign.


Vespa Gentleman Giro Europa route

25.000 km through 40 European countries. The actual route will be determined by the 200+ clubs I want to meet on the way to collect donations.

Even if it doesn't look like it on this map yet: of course a stop at the Scooter Center is planned again, we'll keep you posted!


“Eleanore” - the Smallframe vespa For the tour he will use a Vespa V50N from 1971. It will be the longest scooter ride on 50cc ever!

Markus with Eleonore Vespa V50 N

We are currently working on the engine of the Vespa, so stay tuned, more about that soon here in the blog.


Yes, of course you can help too, Markus is dependent on support and is happy about donations to the individual organizations, more information and donation options here. You are also welcome to share this post with friends via Facebook, Whatsapp etc.

Hose 3.00 10

Vespa & Lambretta Smallframe inner tube 3.00 x 10 bgm PRO

We have chosen a very high buty content for the new bgm PRO inner tubes in favor of better quality and higher safety and therefore a separate tube size for tires up to 3.00-10 and 90 / 90-10 = Vespa & Lambretta Smallframe. Other inner tubes with a lower butyl content have more flexibility due to a higher rubber content. They serve a wider range of possible tire sizes (up to 130 / 90-10), but as a major disadvantage, poorer air tightness and puncture resistance must be accepted.

Our bgm PRO hoses are manufactured to our specifications especially for the needs of Vespa and Lambretta scooters. The butyl content is over 55%, which makes them extremely airtight and absolutely reliable. The high butyl content makes the hose more expensive to produce, but the result justifies the expense! Nevertheless, we offer this high-quality hose at a great price:

Fitting instructions Fitting inner tube & tire

TIP: Our bgm PRO scooter inner tubes can be used in many vehicles with 10-inch tubular tires. When mounting, insert the tires at the bead with mounting paste and dust the inside of the tire with talcum powder. The mounting paste ensures the correct end position of the tire while the talc minimizes the friction of the inner tube. This maximizes the safety and life of the inner tube.

Vespa oil seals bgm PRO

bgm PRO shaft seals made of high-quality and ethanol-resistant (E10) FKM / Viton® *

New: Now also for Wasp Wideframe, GS3, Faro Basso etc .: We have expanded our shaft seal portfolio with modern Simmerrings from bgm and can now offer shaft seal rings made of FKM / Viton® for almost every classic Vespa:


The bgm PRO oil seals have the perfect dimensions that guarantee easy installation, optimum function and a long service life. The large shaft seal on the clutch side, eg on old Vespas, has an overall height of 7 mm on the bgm PRO, instead of the 6.5 mm usually used by other manufacturers. This means that the bgm PRO oil seal is based on the original Piaggio factory specifications. If you have ever taken apart from an old and original Vespa engine, you may have noticed that a large oilseal with a height of 7mm was installed at the factory.


On old engines, the bearing of the crankshaft is 'floating'. This means that the bearing is not fixed and it can be moved axially (horizontally sideways) in the engine housing. This displacement occurs, for example, under load due to the axial force exerted by the helical-toothed primary drive. If the crankshaft shifts too much, this can of course affect the ignition and also the function of the clutch. The aim should therefore be to have as little unnecessary play as possible. The stop and thus the play of this floating bearing in the Vespa engines is determined only by the oil seals. The tolerances in the old engines are large and, for example, we also use thicker housing seals today, so it makes sense to use 7mm oil seals!


The material is FKM (fluorocarbon rubber). extremely resistant to

  • Heat
  • friction and
  • Fuel
  • ethanol

Even super petrol fuel E5 in Germany currently already has up to 5% ethanol admixture, with E10 it is even up to 10%, and the trend is rising. And did you know that this can vary from country to country? Have you ever noticed in France, for example, that your engine runs differently? In other countries, the ethanol / alcohol content can be significantly higher. A conventional oil seal cannot tolerate this increasing ethanol content and can swell or soften when it comes into contact with ethanol-containing fuels. The bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals, on the other hand, offer lasting protection. In addition, our simmering with Viton® is twice as temperature resistant as conventional (blue) NBR shaft seals. Further advantages of these modern shaft seals:

  • extremely impermeable to gas
  • and very resistant to aging


OK, so our radial shaft seals from bgm have

  1. optimal dimensions and
  2. most modern materials

but what are they suitable for now? An engine equipped with bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals can also be used without problems in engines that run on E10 fuel (10% alcohol content). The modern and high quality brown Viton® * sealing material is

  • permanently resistant to ethanol / alcohol and
  • also suitable for engines with high temperature
  • and high speed.

bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals are therefore suitable for all engines! Just play it safe and install the modern Simmerrings right away. Whether for an original engine, mild tuning or extreme tuning and motorsport! For reasons of environmental protection and in favor of maximum flexibility of the sealing lip, we deliberately refrain from additionally coating the sealing lip with PTFE / Teflon® *


The bgm PRO Shaft seals offer double sealing as an additional feature: All shaft seals that seal to the outside, to the atmosphere, have a so-called dust lip. This is positioned in front of the actual sealing lip and holds the seal in place

  • Dust
  • dirt and
  • Moisture.

This further increases the very good stability.


The bgm PRO oil seal set improves the installation clearance and offers an extremely long service life due to the excellent modern materials FKM / Viton®, combined with perfect fuel compatibility: it is even E10 resistant! The oil seals replace the old ones and of course fit without modifications. Tip: We offer the Simmerrings individually as well as in sets and in sets with bearings!

Setting the ignition Vespa with a stroboscope ignition pistol

Adjust the Vespa ignition - but correctly!

The correct ignition timing is important for the thermal health of the engine:

  • Reliability
  • durability and
  • full power delivery

Whoever tunes his Vespa, rebuilds the engine or rebuilds it in the course of a restoration, should not rely on the existing markings on the engine housing, the pole wheel and ignition base plate for ignition adjustment, but should measure it yourself and adjust the Vespa ignition correctly. The correct adjustment of the ignition on your Vespa engine is easily possible with these electronics ignition timing guns for petrol engines with contact or electronic ignition -> transistor ignition system (CDI ignition as in series for ET3, PK, PX, Cosa, T5 etc.) Of course this also works with the Lambretta ignitions. With these ignition pistols you can also adjust the Lambretta ignition. With these stroboscope guns you can adjust both old 6-volt and modern 12-volt ignitions!

The material FKM (fluorocarbon rubber) is extremely resistant to heat, friction and fuel / ethanol. Current super fuel in Germany already contains up to 5% ethanol per se.

In other countries the ethanol / alcohol content is significantly higher. Conventional radial shaft seals can swell or soften when in contact with fuels containing ethanol.
The bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals offer perfect protection against this. In addition, Viton is twice as temperature resistant as conventional (blue) NBR shaft sealing rings , has very good gas impermeability and is also very resistant to aging.


An engine equipped with bgm PRO FKM / Viton® rotary shaft seals can therefore also be operated with E10 fuel (10% alcohol content). The high-quality brown Viton® * sealing material is Permanently resistant to alcohol and is also suitable for engines with high temperature loads and high speeds.
bgm PRO FKM / Viton® radial shaft seals are therefore suitable for all engines, whether original or tuned high-performance engines

For reasons of environmental protection and in favor of maximum flexibility of the sealing lip, we deliberately avoid additional PTFE / Teflon® * loading of the sealing lip


The BGM PRO rotary shaft seals offer a double sealing as an additional feature. All rotary shaft seals that seal against the atmosphere have a so-called dust lip. This is positioned before the actual sealing lip and keeps dust, dirt and moisture away. This further increases the already good stability.

Scootering: bgm CLASSIC tires


So the Scootering magazines has our new bgm tires did not escape. So the current issue contains a nice report on our Classic tires, here they are compared with the legendary MICHELIN ACS, justified.

bgm Classic tires Michelin ACS



bgm has launched a new tire which is a throwback to the old days of scootering but using modern technology. Simply labeled the Classic, the tread pattern is similar to that of the Michelin ACS. For those that can't remember, the ACS was one of the best tread patterns ever designed for the scooter, not only giving good road-handling properties in the dry but also in wet conditions. For years it was standard issue equipment for both the Vespa and Lambretta. Even today, original examples of the ACS can fetch huge sums as owners want that retro look. Michelin destroyed the molds back in the late 1980s and so it was consigned to the history books. Thankfully BGM has brought it back to life with the company's new design. The Classic is speed-rated up to 150kmh / 93mph, which is very impressive. This is down to a strengthened carcass which not only improves stability at high speed but also when cornering. Cornering is aided even further by the V shape of the pro? Le compared with the U shape, which allows more surface contact as the lean angle is increased. Using a revised compound, they are super grippy in any conditions. Not only does this mean that owners with standard machines who want that classic tire look will bene? T but also those with tuned engines can use them as well. The Classic is made in Germany and available in the traditional 3.50-10 size. These tires are now being distributed in the UK with many dealers already stocking them. For more info:

Quite uninhibitedly it shows its Saarland welding art: hand-welded - MADE IN GERMANY. This raw look gives you a direct impression of the brute power development, which is still present after painting. That's a promise!

Quattrini M200 exhaust Ludwig & Scherer OTTO 💪 MUCH MORE PERFORMANCE!

15% + increased performance

This new Ludwig & Scherer exhaust for the Smallframe Vespa with the beautiful name 'OTTO', is specially designed for the popular Quattrini M200 cylinders for the “small” Vespa Smallframe. As a special feature it offers a similar early and high entry into the performance range as the own Quattrini exhaust 'la sua'. However, “OTTO” can turn much more and offers already approx. 10-15% more power on an unmachined cylinder.

If the cylinder is machined accordingly Otto can add more power and torque and easily break the 40PS / 34NM mark.

  • Specially adapted material mixture (silica compound) for excellent grip in dry and wet conditions.
  • 100% Made in Germany.

Vespa V50 shock absorber adapter CMD Joe Possum

ThereWolfgang aka Crazy Monkey Development was again very creative: the result is a beautiful Vespa V50 shock absorber adapter with the name” Joe Possum ". The adapter for the rear shock absorber also fits the classic Vespa Smallframe models like V50, 50N, PV125, ET3 ...

Why do you need a shock absorber adapter?

When you drive a powerful racing exhaust on a Vespa Smallframe (What is a Vespa? Smallframe? ), it is usually the case that the voluminous manifold of the reso exhaust system grinds on the shock absorber. This beautiful adapter, milled out of solid aluminum, shifts the rear shock mount from the rear shock absorber in an adjustment range from 25mm to 45mm to the rear and up to 5mm to the outside.

With this room for maneuver you create enough space for powerful resonance exhaust systems whose manifolds would otherwise touch the shock absorber!

bgm PRO oil bottle

bgm PRO oil with new bottle design

Our bgm two-stroke oils now come with #EasyFill.

The classification into the highest test categories impressively proves the high load capacity and quality of bgm synthetic oil. So we didn't need to optimize our oil, which is great. Of course we ride our bgm PRO oil in our scooters ourselves, and that's when we noticed that there was potential for optimization in the bottle design.

Now we have a new bottle that makes clean refueling & dispensing extremely easy! Little by little we will put it on all bgm oil-wrong ones.

bgm PRO Oil - New Design 2T Oil Bottle with EasyFill bgm Tuning OIL


bgm PRO STREET 2-stroke oil

The bgm PRO STREET synthetic oil is a first-class and highly durable two-stroke oil which meets the strict Japanese JASO FC test standard. Based on an excellent base oil, many high quality additives ensure excellent protection of all components. The high classification as JASO FC makes it extremely low in smoke, perfectly suited for use in engines with catalytic converters. The almost residue-free combustion keeps the entire exhaust tract clean and ensures a long service life of exhaust and cylinder. The special additives ensure a stable lubricating film in all temperature ranges under high engine load. Corrosion protection is just as much a matter of course as the self-mixing properties and usability in engines with oil pump and injection systems.

bgm PRO RACE 2-stroke oil

The bgm PRO RACE fully synthetic is a 100% synthetically produced high performance two-stroke oil. Extremely resilient, it is the first choice in all high-quality and powerful two-stroke engines. It meets the highest of the strict Japanese JASO test standards. In thermally highly stressed air and water-cooled engines, it provides excellent protection for all components. Sports and racing engines benefit from the special additives that provide an extremely stable lubricating film that withstands the highest pressures and temperatures of pistons, bearings and raceways. The low flash point enables full performance from the start of the engine and clean combustion even at partial load. The high classification as JASO FD makes it extremely low in smoke, perfectly suited for use in engines with catalytic converters. The extraordinarily residue-free combustion keeps the entire exhaust tract clean and ensures a long service life of exhaust and cylinder. Excellent corrosion protection is as much a matter of course as the self-mixing properties and the usability in engines with oil pumps.

bgm CLASSIC scooter tires 3.50 / 10

In this video Alex introduces you to the bgm CLASSIC tires, a modern tire with a classic tread pattern for scooters. So don't be irritated by the tread: at first sight the tread is not to be distinguished from the Vespa & Lambretta original equipment tires of the 60s, but the tire is not only something to “drive in front of the ice-cream parlour with the vintage car”.

Thanks to modern tire development Made in Germany and high quality components, the bgm CLASSIC is a very performant tire for all life situations in lean angles, which is clearly visible in its speed release of up to 150km / h and the Reinforced marking.

Torque scooter

Tightening torques for bolts and nuts on the scooter

How tight should I tighten a bolt or nut on the scooter?

Here we have compiled a list of the recommended tightening torques of the manufacturers. *

Too tight!

It has probably happened to everyone at least once, KNOCK and the screw / bolt is off or the thread is broken.
No problem, if you have only destroyed a nut or a stud bolt, it can usually be easily replaced. It already starts to get annoying when you don't have a replacement available.
thread repair: It gets really annoying if you have destroyed a thread in the engine housing! This often becomes complex and usually expensive, especially if it cannot be repaired with a thread insert. Before the housing has to be replaced or welded, a thread repair with Weicon adhesive is often possible.

Too loose!

Apart from being too firm, there is of course also not firm enough! Nuts or screws that are too loose can be dangerous. You don't even want to think about what can happen if wheel nuts or brake discs come loose. Loose carburettors, intake manifolds or cylinders quickly cause engine damage. Depending on the area of ​​application, self-locking nuts or screw locking are the best choice!

In the right order!

In addition, the even tightening of screws and nuts must also be taken into account. Everyone knows this from changing tires, here they are tightened by eg crosses to guarantee an even fit. Also with engine housings and cylinder heads eg tensions caused by unevenly tightened studs should be avoided. There are even components for which a certain order of fastening must be considered. Please follow the manufacturer's instructions here.

Order of stud bolts Vespa engine

Wrong way!

Right hand thread? Left hand thread? Normally nuts and screws are tightened clockwise (right-handed) and loosened counter-clockwise (left-handed) = normal right-hand thread. But there are also exceptions, such as the polar wheel nut Lambretta and left-hand mirrors: often with left-hand thread.


For many applications there are special tools, pullers and especially holders, without which parts usually cannot be detached at all. You will find the tool for your scooter model after selecting the vehicle in the vehicle list:

Vespa special tools

In case of tight connections, penetrating oil such as WD40 often helps!

Torque wrench

We recommend working consistently with a torque wrench and adhering to the recommended tightening torques. We offer various torque wrenches for small and large tasks:
