I am new to this forum, so please forgive me if this topic is not relevant to the board, or if it has been covered before.
I have a 64' Allstate 125. I have considered putting a new 5-port 150cc or PX200 engine in rather than rebuilding the old 125cc. To do so, however, I think I would have to upgrade the forks and hubs to fit 10" wheels. This is my first scooter project, and I don't want to get too carried away with my costs. I plan on riding this scooter around town, and that's about it. I am a rather large person at 6'6" and 250 lbs, so I intially thought more power made sense to haul me around. Any thoughts as to whether I should keep the 125 or make the move to a large engine? My thinking is that by the time I buy new forks, hubs, and an engine, I could have bought a used Vespa 150 for the same price. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
