Welcome to the MB Tech Site.

This is an extension, upgrade and modification to our old MB Developments web site that Ian Hepworth volunteered to do for Mark as a hobby many years ago and from it Ian became MB's General Manager. Working together we developed our web sites and taking the business forward and the old Technical information got forgot about, it's still there as a history but is not kept up to date.

With the introduction of our orginal Facebook (not active but still available to read) we tried to build a technical web site update with lots of photos of our engineering but this proved hard work as we could not control what Facebook did. We still use Facebook but more of a chat and advert kind of thing so it's worth signing up to. As we've moved on and Facebook has improved and now most people are on it we only post on our shop on our MB Scooters Facebook site. 

MB's Tech site is written with over 30+ years experience by Mark Broadhurst, Managing Director for MB Scooters Ltd (ex MB Developments) and now with our new walk in shop, restructure and move of our business in 2011/12 we are now called MB Scooters Ltd. Here you can find lots of information on all things Technical to do with Lambrettas, Vespas, Auto's and if you want you can keep up Marks Adventures on his Facebook site 

Ok I can not spell and I don't know what grammar means but I do try to make these articles easy to read from the idiots point of view, pointless using big long winded words and confusing sentences if I don't even know what it means! Some words are coloured these are links to follow either into our MB Scooters Ltd Lambretta Spares web site or links to other interesting articles.
