Thanks, aye it's in not bad shape; it's given me a few issues along the way mind.

Does it run? I've owned this scooter for 20 years and never had the motor running 🙄

It's a Cumbrian registered scooter and has certainly been on the road at one time.

When I picked it up it had been sat in a damp yard for a good while.

I'm hoping to get it on the road in the near future.

Cheers for the interest.

Welcome to the forum CGT!

That Rally is the color I've always loved and have looked for, but it's never come up. Yours from the picture looks to be in great shape.

Please post pics when you roll it out in the sunlight.

20 years and you've never run it?!?

Hang out here and you'll have it running in no-time!

Again, welcome to MV!

I have been a MV member for a while tbh, but I haven't been active for a while so had to start again.

Thanks for the warm welcome though 😎

I'll post some pics when I get it finished, don't hold your breath though 😀

I'd buy it. Even with the rear hub cap missing. Would have that at 30 bhp in a weekend.

Man, what a gorgeous bike. My 45 year old Rally 200 has original paint and has seen its fair share of bangs over the years. I've renewed everything on it now except for the paint. I think Voodoo or someone threatened to break my knees if I ever sullied the original paint and patina But every time I see a Rally 200 with shiny paint I get that urge...

Not for sale I'm afraid mate, 30 Bhp motor, we'll see, but I very much doubt it.

Thanks guys

Always nice to get comments off people who know their stuff.

I’ve a few teething problems but hopefully I’ll get them ironed out in the coming weeks/months.

Cheers once again
