Tools not only please the heart of a screwdriver, with the right tool the work is also easier to do.

Contrary to the usual myth that you need tons of special tools for the Lambretta, only a few tools are really essential.

ESSENTIALS CATEGORY It doesn't work without them

Allen key bgm PRO 3.5mm

Unusual size and used for the clamping nipples on the gearshift and clutch. The bgm key comes with a practical ball head. This means that the rear shift cable can also be reached when the clutch cable is attached and without a special control block.



Rotor puller M27x1,25

(A – D, LI, LIS, SX, TV, DL, GP, J, Lui) 

Rotor puller M30 x 1,5

(motor place ignition)

Flywheel holder 2+3 windows

LI, LIS, SX, TV, DL, GP, Lui, J50-125

Flywheel holder for flywheel bgm PRO

LI, LIS, SX, TV, GP, DL with 29cm

Rotor holder Casatronic (IDM ignition) 


Rotor holder Casatronic (Ducati ignition


Flywheel puller and suitable holders are the only way to remove the flywheel from the cone of the crankshaft. This is required for all work on the ignition system. But also if you want or need to penetrate deeper into the innards of the engine.

The flywheel holder 2+3 windows is intended for all original Innocenti and Indian flywheels with the corresponding recesses.

The bgm PRO pole wheel has an external hexagon on which the corresponding holder is attached. The holder is supported on the nut of the large silent blocks to hold it up.

There are two variants of the Casatronic ignition, one based on the IDM ignition and the current variant manufactured by Ducati Energia. The pole wheels are blocked with two or three pins on the pole wheel with the appropriate holder.


Clutch compressor bgm PRO

Clutch compressor

LI, LIS, SX, TV (Series 2-3), DL, GP, J, Lui 

Coupling holder 

LI, LIS, SX, TV (Series 2-3), DL, GP 

Both of them are irreplaceable. The compressor is used to relieve the circlip on the Lambretta clutch. After removing the ring, the coupling can be removed.
The clutch nut is tightened with 66 - 74 Nm. For both loosening and tightening the nut, the clutch basket should be blocked with the appropriate tool/holder.

brake drum puller


LI, LIS, SX, TV, DL, GP             





In the mid-1960s the design of the brake drum was changed. At this point, the Series 2 will have three M7 threads instead of the two M6 threads previously used. This goes hand in hand with the use of the retaining ring for the cap nut on the main shaft/brake drum. Our pullers come with both M6 and M7 screws to hold the puller in place. If it is attached to the brake drum, the brake drum is pressed by the main shaft via the large central screw.

The OEM quality of the puller works, but is not the best in terms of haptics.

Casa Lambretta offers the tool in a beautiful workshop quality and it corresponds to the original Innocenti tool.

MBD has optimized the original design and features knurling on the outer edge and a ball in the tip of the central screw. This fits into the recess on the mainshaft and is intended to prevent any damage.

Headset mounting wrench MBD

LI, LIS, SX, TV, DL, GP, J, Lui 

The MBD key for the headset bearing is perfectly adapted to the Lambretta. The holder for countering is separated according to the conditions of the Lambretta.

fork spring compressor


LI, LIS, SX, TV, DL, GP             





The compressor for the springs in the fork is used to overhaul the fork. Neither the fork links nor the springs and their spring guide rods can be removed from the fork without compressing the springs. 

Both the Casa Lambretta and the MB compressor are based on the original design of the tool. This is sometimes a bit difficult to handle and a third or even fourth helping hand is usually not bad.

The OEM design, on the other hand, is screwed to the fork and handling is very easy and time-efficient. So here: clear purchase recommendation for OEMs.

Silent block assembly tool bgm PRO


The silent blocks can only be changed with the appropriate tool and with a sufficiently heated engine housing. The bgm tool for this is a solid turned construction.


crankshaft pulling sleeve 

LI, LIS, SX, TV, DL, GP             

connecting rod locking tool

LI, LIS, SX, TV (Series 2-3), DL, GP, J50, J100, J125, Lui 50-75

Crankshaft removal tool -MBD


Crankshaft pulling tool 


It is best to pull the crankshaft into the bearing on the drive side. The original drive sleeve with the screw for the front sprocket can be used for this.

The pull-in sleeve is a length-optimized version of the original drive sleeve and offers comfort and speed when screwing. In both versions, the crankshaft must be fixed (e.g. with a connecting rod locking tool.

The Casa Performance version is a rather ingenious further development, in which the crankshaft does not have to be blocked and the shaft is drawn particularly gently into the bearing seat.

The MB tool is still the first choice for dismantling the crankshaft. It is screwed onto the motor housing and then the shaft can simply be pushed out of the bearing seat

Video CP tool

MB Developments

The MB Tools are still the first choice for crankshaft disassembly. It is screwed onto the motor housing and then the crank can simply be pushed out of the bearing seat.

Crankshaft drive sleeve puller

Exact copy of the original Innocenti tool. This allows tightly seated drive sleeves to be gently pushed off the crankshaft. The drive sleeve has two holes on the outer end for using the tool. The sleeve and tool are connected to each other with the two knurled screws on the side and then the sleeve is pressed off the crankshaft stump using the toggle.

LI, LIS, SX, TV (series2,3), DL, GP             

Main shaft assembly tool

Before installing the gear backlash, it is important that the countershaft is fully torqued into the rear hub bearing. This can be done with the rear brake hub fixed. An alternative to this is Mark Broadhurst's final drive sleeve tool. Once the layshaft is in place, insert the sleeve by locking the socket head cap screw into the layshaft grooves, fitting the special nut provided, holding the sleeve with a wrench and tightening the nut until the layshaft is pulled into place with the correct torque is.

Determination of top dead center and ignition timing

The dial gauges and brackets, which are mounted in place of the cylinder head, are precision measuring tools for determining top dead center and ignition timing. A good choice if you already have an engine on the workbench or engine stand. If you need to do ignition timing with the engine installed, it may be easier to use the buzzwangle, beluga, or similar methods.

BUZZWANGLE from Sticky

The buzzwangle tool is a brilliant idea from the sticky. A digital degree disc can be clamped onto the threads for the flywheel puller using an adapter with four mounts. Thus, the digital angle dial gauge is immovably attached and both the ignition point and the control times can be determined and adjusted to an accuracy of 0,1°.

Fits all Lambretta Innocenti models and their derivatives. Just like on most Vespa and Piaggio models.

It's best if you just watch the video

Spark plug wrench bgm PRO SW21mm/13mm

LI, LIS, SX, TV, DL, GP, Lui, Junior

The Li family's spark plug accessibility isn't the best. The original spark plug wrench fits, of course, but has the disadvantage that removing a hot spark plug can result in burnt fingers. With the bgm part, the candle can easily be completely unscrewed by hand after loosening. And not only that, an integrated magnet holds the candle securely in the key. There are guaranteed no burnt fingers here.

Assembly stand bgm PRO

Lambretta Series 1-3

Replaces the engine for assembly work. The assembly stand is screwed to the frame via the shock absorber attachment and the engine bolt. The scooter can then be maneuvered as if the engine were inside. Suitable both for keeping the scooter mobile and upright while the engine is on the operating table or for setting up the Lambretta after the preparation or painting when the engine is not yet ready.

Mounting tool shifter claw bgm PRO 'ball crusher'


The ball crusher is a cleverly designed tool. With it, the shift balls and spring can be easily and conveniently installed in the main shaft. Without this tool, installing the shift dog can be a real game of patience. Simultaneously get the balls in position on both sides and enough preload without being shot into the endless expanses of the workshop by the switching spring?

Threaded bushing MB

This thread insert is intended for repairing damaged threads on Lambretta engine cases. Easy and saves welding a case.

Threaded socket M10 x M6   

Threaded socket M10 x M7

Threaded socket M10 x M8


Stud mounting tool

Clever tool from BGM for installing stud bolts without damaging them.
Screw the BGM Pro tool onto the stud bolt and counter with the integrated hexagon socket screw. It is braced with the thread of the stud bolt. Now turn the outer wrench flat. The stud bolt is fixed and is loosened or screwed in. Make sure that the counter-locking is sufficiently strong so that the tool does not come loose.

Ideal for short bolts (such as Lambretta gearbox covers).
The required minimum length of grippable stud thread is:

  • M6 / /M7 = 6,5mm
  • M8 = 9mm

Available individually or as a set.
Also available for the rare thread size M7!

Required additional tool:

  • Combination wrench: SW19
  • Allen key: 6mm

NOTE: Please note that stud bolts glued in with screw adhesive/Loctite often have a very high breakaway torque. Here you should first try to heat the stud(s) or the housing around it in order to loosen the adhesive connection.

Lambretta tool bag retaining clip    

The Innocenti icing on the cake of a beautiful restoration is the original on-board tool kit in the right bag with Lambretta Innocenti ribbons and then fixed with the correct retaining clip.

A nice reading recommendation on the subject of tools is the reprint of the Innocenti tool catalogue.

Oil measuring cup 

Another nice addition to any Lambretta tool box is the Innocenti oil can from Casa Lambretta. This is an exact copy of Innocenti's American market device. It comes complete with a snug fitting cap. It has the 'Lambretta' and 'Innocent' logos embossed on the sides.



Lambretta and Lambro (1960s models)     

And since the right tool is useless without knowing how to use it, here is the ultimate Lambretta reading tip! Since its release in 2004, the Sticky Manual has been the definitive repair manual for the Lambretta. The work steps are explained throughout with color illustrations. In addition to the pure repair instructions, the Sticky Manual is also an indispensable aid for identifying and distinguishing between parts.

Since 1994, Rptar Machinery Industrial Group has used its capabilities to manufacture top-of-the-line tools under the Toptul brand. The price/performance ratio is probably unsurpassed. Only the most reliable tool steel alloys are used, such as chrome-molybdenum steel or chrome-vanadium steel.
We have selected a few products to show the variety, but there is not enough space here for the entire range.

in the SC shop

An old friend of Scooter Center was here. Sebastian Alvarez from Argentina, he came especially for EuroLambretta 2022 in Belgium and Euro Vespa Days in Portugal and now that he was around he decided to stock up on spare parts for his shops, learn more about the facilities at the Scooter Centers to find out and to visit us.

And of course I had to be there to tell him all about it in his native language Scooter Center and Cologne to explain!!!

History of Vespa and Lambretta in Argentina

but we also took the opportunity to learn a little more about the incredible history of Vespa, Lambretta and the very special one: Siambretta in Argentina, because it is one of the South American countries with the longest Vespa and Vespa Club history, and how could different when the Vespa is represented by a legend: Juan Manuel FANGIO, the Argentine racing driver considered by experts as one of the most outstanding professional drivers in world motorsport of all time, having won five world titles in Formula 1.

With so much luck, Sebastian had access to beautiful treasures from his customers, like this piece with original papers signed by Fangio:

The origin of the Siambretta in Argentina begins in the 1950s, with the SIAM company, which imported all the parts, but then started building under the name: SIAM-Lambretta, the desire then took the name: siambretta, the success was such that it started production quite nationally.

The curious thing about the Siambretta is that the most famous models in Argentina were exactly the oldest Lambretta models, while in Italy the 200, 175, 150, etc. are the most "common" Lambrettas, while in Argentina the 125 was very successful. In Argentina there are circles of “siambreteros” who own motorcycles admirable for their level of originality.

Restauraciones Extremas - Official Dealer Scooter Center in Argentina

and Restauraciones Extremas are part of this important history in Argentina, reviving ancient beauties. Here are some examples of the "extreme restorations" he's done and some of them are possible thanks to the new parts he's from Scooter Center got.  

Siambretta 125 LD and Siambretta TV175

Congratulations for such dedicated work, nice to see how everyone in the Lambretta world knows each other and forms a nice community, have fun in the EuroLambretta and thank you Sebastian for visiting us, you are always welcome You can do more of his work see here:

The end of an era is very near to come. There had been rumors in 2019 about the closure of the Scooters India Limited in 2019, in January 2021 it was official that the Indian cabinet made the decision for closing SIL indeed.

what was Scooters India Limited?

The SIL company took over the rights and tools for manufacturing the Lambretta from Innocenti in 1971. Until the plant was set up and running it took a while. But from 1975 onwards they produced and marketed the two-wheelers Vijai Deluxe (DL) and later the Vijai Super for the domestic market and the Lambretta GP for the export markets. Besides the two-wheeler production they also produced the three-wheelers, mainly for the domestic market though. The two-wheeler production was stopped in 1997 and the focus from then on was for the three-wheelers and Lambretta spares for the export market.

The SIL scooters were popular during the 90's and Scooter Center as well imported quite a few containers full of brand new SIL Lambretta GP 200 back then.

Now it seems that the factory is going to be demolished very soon. Our friend Abhi was so kind to send us some pictures he has recently taken in the SIL plant. Who knows, maybe the last ones.

The end of an era!


  • Incorporated in 1972 as Scooters India Limited.
  • Company's plant owes its origin to Innocenti of Italy from which it bought over the plant and machinery, design, documentation, copyright and so on. The company is also said to possess the world right of the trade name LAMBRETTA / LAMBRO.
  • In 1975, company started its commercial production of Scooters under the brand name of Vijai DL (later Vijai Super) for domestic market and Lambretta for overseas markets.
  • Located at 16 Km mile stone, South-west of Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh on No 25 and well connected by road, rail and air.
  • Key player on supplying Lambretta enthusiasts around the world until the end of the 90s.

On the couch at Scooter Center. An interview with Julia Spitzna

Being part of the Scooter Center team means to work with great people. Better than working is riding!

On my left and right side at the office, I have passionate Lambretta aficionados. Therefore, it probably was only a matter of time before I ride with one of them. In this case with her, but she is not just any girl, she is Yoleila (at Facebook) or Julia.

She is the president of the Lambretta Club Germany, scooter racer, almost a collector, crazy for the original scooters and parts, graphic designer and I could keep going…

That is why we interview her, to listen to those stories that we love to hear.

As a result, A very exciting project is about to be started,

stay tuned until the end to find out where it is all about;)

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.

Delivery mission with Lambretta TV 175 and Vespa GTS in Bangkok

Travelogue Thailand, Bangkok 2018

It is January 2021 and we are still missing the lifestyle associated with our chosen way of life. No runs, no nighters, no racing and sometimes it feels like no nothing than Covid. So, the other day we were discussing in the Skype lunchtime meeting the subject of our business travels.

We did a lot and most ended up being sweaty and covered in dust and grease or over tired on some motorways with a hangover on our way back.

One of the ultimate highlights of all Scooter Center travels has been the one to Bangkok in 2018. We had the plan to visit the dealers over there and get a better feeling for the scene in Thailand. We are in general very far from being hypercritical and see the positive things rather than negative things. A lot of the complaining in the western hemisphere is not very objective and the usual prejudice when it comes to Asia is - let us face it - copycats.


Buddy Seat Lambretta Garage

We were really looking forward to see what would be waiting for us. Our first stop after we landed was visiting Buddy seat Lambretta garage. A fantastic place with frame and fork jigs and an unbelievable level of artisanship. Starry-eyed as we are, we simply tried to find the place ourselves. The try was without any success and we had to ask a taxi driver to call the shop to find it. As things were not easy, the shop owner itself came to guide us. And hey presto, we are in town less than two hours and are escorted by a Lambretta TV 200 to the shop. Not a too bad start for the seven-day business trip. The language barrier was sadly there, but the gestures between some Lambretta nuts worked well and we made the conversation this way.

[modula id = ”100205 ″]

Lambretta Thailand Cafe

As we do not want to bore you to death with every single detail, we make it short. Our second stop was the Lambretta Thailand Café that hosts as well as the Lambretta Thailand Shop of our good friend Toon, he speaks perfect English and took care of us for the rest of our stay in BKK. He really made the business trip to the perfect holiday at least for Philipp. Maybe even Ulf.

Delivering scooter parts in Bangkok with Lambretta TV 175 and Vespa GTS

Besides our daytime entertainment in visiting dealers, Toon showed us all the cool places.

The places he brought us to deeply impressed us and showed at the same time how passionate and obsessed the folks over there are with anything Vespa and Lambretta.

Ratchada Night Market

Another great highlight and a place where we could have stayed for eternity is the Ratchada Night market. A place with a few small Lambretta shops, lots of vintage car shops, vintage stuff and clothing. Cafes, bars, amongst others at old American fuel station (demounted in the States, brought over and re-assembled) and loads of other bits to see, eat and drink.
