They may be able to get out of insolvency and keep their doors open, but...
I'd recommend buying any spares you might need now.

Best,

As the above article observes. probably not too much difficulty for the 2T Stella. The 4T and auto Stellas may, however, have greater difficulties regarding parts availability in the future.

Ya, it won't be an issue for the 2t's. There will be no shortage of parts for many years. As for the others, if there is a demand, someone will make parts.

Saw this over on the Vespa forum. Looks like LML is officially out of business.
