Hi not sure if I'm posting in the correct place here I'm new to this site.
I have recently purchased a piaggio skipper st125 4 stroke. Its a wreck.
My first ever scooter 35 years ago was a vespa rally 200, followed by a p200 e.
I have 3 lambrettas.
This is my first ever auto.I have never sat on one or ridden one til the impulse purchase of the skipper.I wanted a et4.
I got the Skipper running. After buying a battery. I never realised you had to hold the brake lever to start it . Much head scratching later I discovered you do.

I have a question. I am thinking of using the engine in an et4 frame. At present the engine has 12 inch wheels. Can I fit et4 10 inch wheels onto the rear. It is a 2004 model leader engine.

Thanks for the welcome guys. Yes I am hoping you can help me and provide information. If possible i will try and provide useful comments and help.

I know the leader engine is used in various scooters.
