Discount - I'm sure this is a tough one for the dealers (Jet200, Scooter Speed, Sole Power, Lambretta Concessionaires, ScootersO Pacific, etc) as I would guess 40-50% of their (Lambretta parts) orders probably come from LCUSA members, which would eat into their bottom line, and they still have overheads and want to make a wage, so that they're still in business when we need parts !!
Tony's suggestion above about Pay It Forward is a great one as we all have stuff laid around which may be useful to other members who are in need.

To me, its this Forum, the Jamboree and the lifelong friendships as Peter mentions above.
