Isetta Parts Resources

  • Isettas "R" us, Inc. - If you need quality parts fast order from Werner Schwark.  I have ordered a lot of parts from Werner and I have been happy with every single part that I have received from him.  If I ever need something, Werner is the first person that I call.  Shoot him an email with everything you need at isettas@bellsouth.net.  Also be sure to ask him about his catalog
  • IsettaClassics.com - You have probably seen some of Leo's stuff on eBay, but he also has his own web store.  I ordered a muffler and some gasket sets from him and overall I am pleased with his products.  Pictures of the exhaust can be found here, here, and here
  • The Bromely Bubble - David Tadman of The Bromely Bubble can take care of your British built Isetta needs.  He even stocks the impossible to find front turn signal rubber boots!
  • Hans Rothkegel - Hans has a wonderful catalog with exploded view diagrams of the entire car.  You can almost order everything that it would take to build a new Isetta from him, I'm not joking.  Shoot him an email and he can send you the catalog in a pdf.  I have ordered parts from him so I can vouch for his quality products.  He also makes it easy to order from him becasue you can pay through paypal.  Some examples of his parts can be seen here, here, and here.
  • Harrington Group - I ordered a set of door hinges from them and I am very pleased with the quality of the parts.  They also have a really cool line of all stainless steel bumpers.  They are polished to a chrome finish and have a lifetime anti corrosion warranty.  The look beautiful and I have heard good things about them.  I may pick up a set for our car depending how much it is going to cost to re-chrome the originals. 
  • ItalianMetals eBay store - !!!!!BUYER BEWARE!!!! Purchase from Claudio at your own risk.  Examples of his "quality" parts can be found here, here, here, and here.  Not only will he refuse any kind of refund for a defective product, but he will blame you for the part being that way.  Common excuses that he uses are:  "You must have installed it wrong," "You are a dishonest buyer," "I have sold these around the world and never had any complaints."  I have been in contact with 10 fellow Isetta owners and 1 Fiat 600 owner that have had a bad experience with him.  On a side note, I have noticed that he quit selling the door handle that I complained about shortly after I filed a claim with paypal to get my money back. 

Isetta Compatible Parts

  • Tires - BF Goodrich 480x10.  These can be ordered at your local Les Schwab Tire Center or CokerTires.com.  I actually found that it was cheaper to have Les Schwab order them for me then to have Coker ship them to me directly.
