CLASSIC SCOOTER, CAR AND MOTOCYCLE STORAGE IN RIMINI! Several times a year we have a lot people coming over for various events, such as the Milano -Taranto, Moto Giro d’Italia, Tre Mari and the Mille Miglia. Some people transport their vehicles down here just prior to an event but that can be costly, coupled with the possible risk of damage in transport.
Over the years, more and more people have chosen to leave a certain vehicle in Italy on a permanent basis, so that – in theory - at any point, they can arrive, collect it and then partake in their chosen event. Once that’s over the same vehicle goes straight back into storage.
Rimini Lambretta Centre now operates out of two very large industrial units in the Rimini area, on Italy’s Adriatic coast. One is our shop HQ, complete with full workshop and dyno facilities, staffed by qualified engineers. Following requests for this type of storage service, we have now decided to offer secure year round parking for customers’ vehicles in the second building....but with something extra.
Whereas some similar places simply offer just storage facilities, we offer a much more. Not only do we offer secure storage for your vehicle, we can also keep it serviced and in tip-top condition. And that doesn’t just mean keeping batteries charged or tyres pumped up; we can carry out ANY servicing work and repairs for ANY scooter or motorcycle. So whether it’s a Lambretta LD150, a Vespa GS160 or a Gilera Saturno 500cc you wish to store with us, rest assured we’ll look after it as if it were one of our own vehicles. We can also store all your riding gear.
The vehicles will be kept in a clean, dry, ultra-secure building and we can guarantee your machine will be perfectly ready for when you arrive to use it. Clean, mechanically perfect and with a full tank of fuel.
There is no limit to the amount of times you can collect and use your vehicle in a year. We have great collaboration with a number of very classy, but economical hotels in the direct vicinity so we can also organise accommodation if you need to stay for a night when collecting or dropping off your vehicle.
Storage is just Euro 2.00 per day, for a scooter or a motorcycle. Cars cost Euro 4.00 per day. All servicing, preparation and mechanical work is carried out at normal RLC workshop rates (Euro 50.00 per hour).
So great food and drink, amazing weather and superlative riding experiences in the most beautiful country in the world are simply there for the taking. What are you waiting for? Call us to organise the transportation of your scooter or motorcycle down to us here in Rimini for some TLC. Italian style.

NEW!!! We have just released the all-new CP One35 135cc conversion kit for all smallframe Lambretta J50, Lui 50C/CL, Lui 75, Cento, J125 3-speed and J125 Starstream & Super Starstream 4-speed models. This is a plug ‘n’ play conversion kit offering unprecedented out-of-the-box performance for any smallframe J Range or Lui /Vega/Cometa, irrespective of original engine size.
Currently the only mass-produced kit for these models is the ‘Casa 75’ which puts out just 3.5hp! The CP One35 puts out between 10-12hp (depending on exhaust used) in standard, untouched format, with power delivery being very linear. Performance is on a par with a very good Lambretta GP200 and there’s loads of bottom-end torque on tap. That unloved Vega 75 or J50 that you have lurking at the back of your garage instantly becomes a perfectly useable scooter for both commuting and rally-going alike.
We have done massive testing of the kits over the last 18 months, with some truly epic trips being undertaken. As one person put it, “You’re prepared to go and break down in the middle of nowhere so we don’t have to!”
All J50, Lui 50, Lui/Vega/Cometa 75cc, Cento, J125 and Starstream models share an identical base gasket design and that means that this kit can be fitted to any of these models, as long as a 48mm stroke (100cc-125cc type) crankshaft is used.
The specifications of the new CP One35 kit are as follows: nicasil lined die-cast high-grade aluminium barrel, multi-port, purpose-made graphite coated 60mm Meteor piston, 4-petal reedvalve inlet, one-piece rubber inlet manifold, multi-point cylinder head fixing and a 4-stud exhaust flange mounting (two of which are in the original positions). Each kit comes complete with studs, a full selection of gaskets and all necessary fixing hardware.
The code for the CP One35 kits is X807 and the cost is just €485,00/GBP £433. The kits are available directly from us here at Rimini Lambretta Centre, or can be ordered from any Casa Performance dealer worldwide. Let the fun begin!
We have also published a VERY thorough File with all info relative to the kits! This can be viewed HERE
Please note that we have slightly different Opening Hours in the summer and they are as follows:
Monday to Friday: 08.30 – 13.00 and 14.00 – 17.30
Saturday: 08.30 – 13.00 (afternoons by appointment only)
LANCIA CLUB OF ITALY VISIT RLC! We often get asked to open the shop doors for clubs and associations who want to see the world of Lambretta scooters and to see first-hand what we do at RLC, on both the restoration side of the things and all that covers the tuning branch of the company, that is of course ‘Casa Performance’. Recently we were asked by the Loris Giorgetti, the President of the ‘Scuderia HF Rally Driver’ Lancia Club if we could open up on a Sunday for their members to visit and we were more than happy to oblige. Within the RLC team it’s not just 2 wheels that ticks our collective boxes as Micky follows the Rally scene, Marco has an Innocenti Mini Cooper 1300 Export, Lorenz has a Lancia Delta and Joe has a stupidly loud exhaust on his Abarth Fiat, if that counts?
Come the big day, the weather was roasting and it was perfect. We laid on a good spread of food and refreshments for the Club and they seemed to really enjoy visiting a place that was definitely unique, and represents something probably completely unknown to them. As we got chatting, it wasn’t long before it turned out that several members had, or still have, Lambrettas tucked away. They were “amazed by the RLC level of restoration” and truly blown away by the Casa Performance side of things.
We’d like to publically thank them for coming to visit us, as there were some truly super cool vintage cars such as original Fulvias and Deltas parked outside, driving by some really colourful, and interesting characters!
