Reconditioning, restoring, or merely repairing an older motor scooter can be a considerable challenge because the manufacturers are generally unsympathetic ("Hey, junk it and buy a new one, dummy!") or long gone out of business.

There may be a local shop to do some repair and restoration work, but these aren't easy to find if you aren't in a big city, and even when you find a shop, it often specializes in one or two brands of "collectible" scooters.

Some of the resources linked here are gateways to further resources, so be prepared to search out "Links" pages in their Websites. You might even e-mail the owners to ask humbly for their advice.

If you find a great source of advice, parts, or services, please share it with us; click here to e-mail the link's URL - I'll post it here with our thanks! Please understand that I'm not responsible for the contents of these Websites; if you think something is offensive, let me know.

Although the American Motorcyclist Association may not yet be a "scooter" group, they are influential and support scooterist's issues.

I joined the AMA to become active in promoting scooterist's interests and to encourage the leaders of this association to recognize that there are no essential conflicts between "motorcycle" and "scooter" issues.

I have e-mailed the president to suggest that the AMA approach some of the larger Scooter Clubs to offer them a forum for discussion of common interests.
