Completely unexpected, but I was gifted a PX200E Lusso this afternoon...
A good friend of mine has a lot of old machines stored in the back of a shop. There were like over a 150 machines (Honda, Jawa, Peugeot, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kreidler, and a few Vespa's).
He was a little lost about how to get rid of them, so I put him in contact with a few people who took about 15 - 20 machines off his hands.
At the end of the afternoon, there was one PX200E left, and I asked him how much he wanted for the bike.
He thought about it for a few seconds and then said that I could have it to thank me.
I did not pick it up yet (first have to find the right moment to tell my wife
The bike is complete, is probably from 1986 and should have had a rebuild of some sort anywhere between 5 to 15 years ago.
The gas tank smells fishy, and the oil sight glass is covered with some hardened oil.
I kicked it this afternoon, and the engine ticks over, and a light on the dash lights at that moment.
I have no experience on a "modern" bike like this
What would you guys do to try to get it running?
I was thinking about :
- cleaning the gas tank
- cleaning the autolube tank - how do you do this? Can you remove it? Should I put some gas in it? (Never had a Vespa with autolube).
- Clean carb
- New spark plug
I only have a few quick pics for the moment:
