As some of you know I do healthy bit of scooter wrenching outside of my normal employment. I've got a few rules I operate by since I am in a strong scooter market and there is an existing business in my city with employees and ownership I respect very much; because of this I only take referrals from people I have met previously or from others who know me.

Someone on this side of the MV fence gave out my information and I was able to get the scooter back on the road in a couple days time. At the time I didn't think it was a big enough of a job to go handing the guy a bill, so we struck up a deal for a P125/150 engine he had. He brought the engine over and lo and behold it turned out to be a P200 engine. I offered him a little cash for it since the trade seemed a bit too in my favor, but he insisted I take it anyway.

Thanks!

I'm gonna pop it open and go through it quick. I also have a PX200 EFL engine, so I've got to decide which one I'll be putting in a VBB I'm building with a Pk fork. Not that it matters, seeing as it will all be going up for sale.
