Sheldon Vickers (Owner), Paul Sims (Retail Sales Manager of American Scooter Center), Brian Bybee (Lambretta and Vespa Mechanic), Are pieces of Racist s**t.
These bastards did a lob job on my scooter when it was sent in for repair. I was quoted a turn over of 2 weeks for the repairs. Two weeks became 3 months. They refused to answer the phone or emails that I sent. Repairs were not done until I got thru and threatened to pull the motor out of their hands.
When I received my bike's engine. The engine had signs of trouble. The cheapest (Indian) possible parts were used in the repair of my Italian scooter. Later I had a near accident as a result of a poorly fitted Scooter top-end kit. They refused to respond to my calls following that event.
Later it was also revealed to me that the rear hub nut had not been tightened to the proper torque settings down onto the rear axle. The push pin was literally all that was holding the wheel on.
Again, No response from them after a series of calls and emails were sent. I contacted the BBB and filed a formal complaint. The Better Business Bureau attempted to contact them. The losers didn't even respond to them.
That is a heavy offense.
At this point, any move they make against me. I have been prepared to take my case to the proper authorities as well as file a discrimination suite against American Scooter Center / Pirate Imports. The BBB is in a position to back me up. I look forward to the day that I can meet these bastards in person.
These guys are the things that line the bowels of cows.
My advice to everyone is that you fix your bike yourself.
I have been doing that for a long time. I decided for this once in a blue moon time to have someone else repair my bike. As a result all of this happened.
I have learned that most 90% "classic" scooter shops in America are run by racist pieces of American mocking British National Front wannabee 'MOD' skinheads shitheads. With their loser n**i inspired Nordic scooter club logos and hate filled attiudes.
If you look onto their website you can see that these radical Texas rightwing fools stand around with machine guns and the sort. Real macho guys! Classic
