    Desperate for help

    Hy I have a Motobi Imola RS50 2014 and ive lost my keys. Does anyone have or know where I can purchase an ignition lock and a seat lock or is there an alternative lock I can adapt to fit. I have looked everywhere. The dealer who sold the bike has gone out of business and I am finding spares are getting like hens teeth. Yet its a good bike Please help Regards

    Are the importers in Barnsley not there anymore. These scooter firm is based in Austria 2010 onwards. Why can you not get a locksmith (apart from cost) to cut new keys from the barrel. They are mostly Chinese components so look to that country they usually have ref to the make and model that they fit

    Then it's a case of trawling Europe for dealers and networking i.e. FB Motobi

    Thanks that really fills my heart with gladness. Gone are the days when we could pick up a different part and "adapt it" Ive done that to many times to count . Thanks for your help . but Ive still got Pedparts to phone yet . Not open till 10 AM Regards

    Maybe benellioldman's suggestion to engage a locksmith is the best call IF you cannot source a lockset?

    A locksmit sounds like a sensible idea at present Do you know of one that does M/cycles?
