A couple of years ago I was on my honeymoon, we stayed in Southern Germany visiting family. I knew I was just minutes away from Germany’s (and worlds) largest suppliers of Vespa parts – SIP. Scooter Innovation Parts (SIP) have an impressive array of parts for classic scoots such as Vespa and Lambretta as well as modern buzz boxes like Aprilla, Benelli Kymco etc. SIP develop a lot of custom performance parts as well as bolt on goodies.
They started in 1989 and have grown to 50 employees shipping over 400 packages a day! Wow! I am jealous of their success. I spent the summer of ’89 working close by in Bavaria, buzzing around on an ancient small frame loaned to me by my cousins, so I have a soft spot for Germans on Vespas.
Here are a few pictures of SIP facility on Graf Zeppelin Str. in Landsberg, gotta love the street name. They have a small showroom with a selection of great classic scooters.
