if u pleased by that its urs then i will personally get upset if i spend that kind of money to resto and paint without a proper way, as i see ur engine isnt drop out while the frame get paint.. if i did that then it will be another $10 paint project (find my post using the search function)

last time out i put a elestart on a 1995 ekslusif II only cost me $5 on the dynamo and bendix while the switch were only $1 as for the cable i steal it out of an old car stater wire guess how much i buy the ekslusif II ? just $100 (find in search function as well)

seem to me u life in a "rich" part of jakarta while i am in the cheapo part of jakarta

have a nice day in jakarta and cheer mate

First off, OK I'm old too, but either of my sons try to take away my scoots, I'll cut 'em out of my will!

Good pics, no worries - I like seeing the characteristics that distinguish the Dan Motor produced Vespas.

Is that plastic rear engine cover Dan Motors or an accessory?

Loving those Ariete levers too and the Dan Motors speedo.

Haha I believe your kids wouldn't dare ..after the restoration he often come to my place just to have a look at and talk about old glories

My friend give me the engine cover, and he also get it from a friend, but iit is not a danmotor's for sure, I think its india or vietnam made

Cool bike, Wimpy Kimpy! I love Danmotor Vespas and their history. I actually have fitted an Indonesian headset from an Exclusive 2 onto my early PX, and am having a little trouble figuring out how to connect the electrics that don't usually go together.
Do you (or Koenig Blues) have a wiring diagram, or know of an online source for one? My speedo is exactly the same as yours with the oil reserve light, neutral, etc.

Thanks in advance for any help.

It's ok if it's in bahasa indonesia, just as long as it is relevant to Danmotors models.

Thanks, but no good either. I'm looking specifically for an Exclusive/Exclusive II diagram with oil lever sender and fuel gauge. This is a simplified version with only the basics.
