Vespa Spares was started by Paul Sheridan around 2006.
At the time within New Zealand there was no way to get mail order spares other than go direct to an overseas company. During this time Paul purchased parts from a few defunct scooter shops around the country and then with a hard copy parts list he started to mail out the list to customers throughout N.Z.
Working closely with SIP (as an authorised dealer) and importing from Italy, Vietnam, China, UK and USA, Paul eventually launched online, and established Vespa Spares as a leading parts supplier providing difficult to locate parts throughout N.Z.
Several years ago Paul sold the rights to Vespa Spares, which now in 2021 we have acquired. Vespa Spares has now merged with ScooterCafé, located in the heart of Napier CBD, N.Z.
