    Does this mean that Frank will be asking his customers for funding for the court costs? a bit like he did when Scomadi was in its conception stage??

    I think Frank and Paul will be fighting a losing battle on this one, but I hope I’m wrong. Check out the Chinese Land Wind, it’s virtually an exact copy of a Range Rover Evoque. If a big conglomerate like Jaguar / Land Rover can’t win against the Chinese, I don’t see how Frank and Paul can. Maybe their mistake was getting the Scomadi made in the Far East in the first place ?. Yes, the costs were cheaper, but there are quality issues with the Scomadi’s and I feel that they lost their way a little once Piaggio refused to supply their engines. A friend had an original prototype Scomadi with the GTS engine and it was a beautiful scooter. I know of some others who are having no end of trouble with their Chinese built machines. I wish you both well in your legal action, but please don’t bankrupt yourselves in the process.

    They will win in court to stop the import of the scooters but to stop the manufacturer of them in China there’s no way China do not believe in copy right

    I think this is always the risk when manufacturing in China – the design will be copied and sold wherever possible. Bit ironic that the people that copied the Lambretta are suing the people that copied the scooter that copied the Lambretta… Personally, I’d spend the money on marketing and a dealership network to make the Scomadi the most desirable rather than give it to solicitors.

    time somebody told the real reason for the barney.
    mr chen the big shareholder and manufacturer, fed up with the galgate branch not selling anywhere near agreed numbers, because of mega prices they’re charging for plastic Chinese lambretta copies. so he and moto gb can make more money and still sell cheaper. could probably sell the plastic ones for 1500 if they wanted to.

      Your comment might carry more weight if you didn’t just create a fake FB profile with which to post it.

        incorrect ironic reply as the piece is about fake lambrettas from someone using an alias
