Inspired by the recent discussion on the different PK clutches and that I am now sort of 'restoring' my '91 PK50 XL2 back to mostly its original trim. I think the PK series is underappreciated and has a lot going for it for a smallframe.
You get a glovebox and spare tire under the left cowl which makes it even more balanced. Security, you can't open the cowl doors without unlocking the seat and the column lock shuts off the ignition. You get a decent modern fork on most of them and on the newer ones you get single cable shift and a choke by the brake lever. Gas guage, turn signals, CDI & strong 12V lites....
You get a nice plug n play electrical connection:
It's real easy to like and was my main ride for my 1st 2 years on scooters, what I learned how to ride in traffic on.
And oh how I would love me a Mk1 PK125!
I had mine all pimped out w/ brappy Leo Vince expansion chamber pipe, a metal glovebox, rubber floormats and sexy rack but those parts have migrated to an older bike and all the old plastic parts & stock muff I set aside 6 years ago are back on it. I did leave the lens guards and the older 'mk1' turn signals as the originals were trashed. Also keeping the smoking hot DR70 kit on there . Big thanks to Nuttmeg for the sweet MotoVespa seat and to Dr ono for the fresh 19 carb that finally got the motor running right.
has Utah 'Fox' trim
OK, still a bit scruffy
