All our lives we have been passionate about what we are doing, enjoying life while helping people enjoy theirs. We met in the adventure travel business, the company in California that Paul worked for sent hikers to the company in Peru that Maggy worked for.
Paul spent 20 years in the travel business as a financial executive and Maggy has been an interior designer for 15 years. Throughout 2011, we looked for a business to buy that has a product that brings a smile. Scooters were it. We bought this fine scooter business this May, 2012 and have enjoyed every day since.
The two mechanics stayed with the shop and continue to do their top-notch work now. Pedro Galvan has been the lead mechanic at Vespa Portland for over seven years and is a graduate of the prestigious Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Phoenix. He is certified to work on scooters/cycles made by Vespa, Piaggio, Genuine, SYM, Ural as well as several other brands. Our other outstanding mechanic, Leigh Ryan, joined the company almost two years ago.
Although this page is “about us”, you the customer is what makes “us” happen. We are proud to be Portland’s largest scooter dealership, offer the finest service department in the area, to be a part of the community, and to offer everyone a chance to not only lower their carbon footprint, but to enjoy their commute, to make errands an adventure instead of a chore, and to always find parking! We sincerely appreciate your business and want to keep that smile on your face.
