Nov. 20, 2004 We just aquired the remaining parts inventory (new and used) from OCCO Specialties in New Jersey.
OCCO was the importer of the Valmobile Scooter for the USA and bought the worldwide rights for distribution from GOSHO Japan.
The Factory apparently shipped everything they had to OCCO and then promptly went Bankrupt.
This was back in the mid 1960's.
Some of the items we DO NOT HAVE:
Literature (owners manuals, etc)
Replacement Rubber Suspension pieces
Air Cleaner Housings
Kick Pedal Rubber
Grip Rubber (hand grips)
Any Kind of "Rebuild Kits"
sorry- we were as disappointed to find this out as you are.
We are in the process of going through everything to see what we DO have.
Some Parts are already listed on the Valmobile PARTS PAGE
If you do NOT have a Parts Manual, you should get the CD listed here and print it out.
