New Arrival- Grip-Locks

Vespa Lexington is excited to announce another shipment of Grip-Locks just arrived straight from New Zealand. The last batch of Grip-Locks we got in lasted just a few days, so if you want to reserve one give us a ring (859.523.8555) or shoot us an email (info@vespalexington.com). We have every available color and they are priced at only $72.

“Grip-Lock is Kiwi ingenuity – a world first. Providing the worlds only motorcyle security device that clamps both throttle and hand brake – instantly. No twist grip – no acceleration. Compact, lightweight yet rugged, the Grip-Lock come with 2 keys and 3 grip inserts for maximum adjustability and perfect fit. The best security available for vintage scooters that often come without keys and have drum brakes.

Features:

Highly visible
Compact (fits easily in pocket, bag or glove compartment)
Self explanatory, quick and easy. If security is easy you’re more likely to use it every time.
Laboratory developed and tested to resist extreme impact levels.
Strong yet lightweight. Three hardened steel inserts will destroy hacksaw blades.
Fits most scooters, motorcycles and quads.
Stops embarassing falls – Unlike disc locks, you can’t forget it’s in place, no bending, no disc dirt and street grime.
Highly adjustable for twist grip size and brake lever position – on clutch or brake lever, with brake on or off – while still immobilising the twist grip. Slider allows you to adjust the desired amount of pressure on the brake.
Anti drill, anti pick lock barrel with 50,000 key combinations.
Key not required to lock.
Used on the front bake lever will keep the bike from being pushed off the center or side stand.
Used on the rear brake lever will hold the back tyre from spinning allowing for the loosening or re-torquing of the clutch nut when doing belt, clutch and variator maintenance.

New Arrival: Coal Headwear

Just in time for fall and winter, Vespa Lexington just got in a big ol box full of Coal Headwear to keep your noggin warm this winter. You might find Coal to be a strange brand for a Vespa shop to stock but we have been big fans of the company and their product for a number of years. Coal offers both the most functional and stylish winter headwear you can buy. Besides when you take your helmet off, your gonna need something to cover up your ratty helmet head.

“Coal was founded on the belief that headwear is more then an accessory. It’s part of you, your identity, and your lifestyle. We build this idea into each of our designs by using quality materials and exacting detail, and crafting styles that are as unique as you are.

We are dedicated to making headwear more than an accessory.”

We have a large offering of headwear for guys and gals as well as some sweet gloves and scarfs. You need to swing by Vespa Lexington quick and check it all out before its gone.
