I think one day you will do a full O tune. Double stock power and using only modified original parts. Amazing.
I'm going to start researching it! The first time I need to crack open the cases on Ruby......

SOLD
The White P200 has been sold.

A cool dude named Chris from Springfield came over to the coast today and left with the P in his truck. Luckybear just happened to be here tightening shift cables on Flo and went for a ride through the neighborhood with him.

He comes from a sportbike background, but wants something cool to ride around the Eugene area. He was stoked because he read this thread and knew what he was getting...

The engine is sweet. I'm still amazed with the slight porting how it woke this engine up.

Thank you all for all the input and advice. It is very much appreciated! It's been a super fun project. Turning out the lights....

I'm thinking smallframe & am keeping an eye peeled

Strong fast P200
Sexy old AllState
Nimble quick smallie

Like hitting the Vespa trifecta or scoring a Vespa hat trick!

Thanks guys! It does feel good to know it was a solid build, and to get some space in the garage. I rode the GTS-250 today into town. Needless to say Ruby, the P200 that has been tucked away in the back of the garage is moved to pole position for the next run into town. And the GTS is for sale....

And Voodoo! I'm going to end up with a smallie one of these days, just because of you! Ha!
