Hi

Just inherited this lady. Belonged to a good friend who passed away.
Trying to get her back on her feet.
Will report on progress.
Cheers

since your friend has deceased may we complain about the color?

What I would do for one of those lifts... just about anything, but pay the $6-700 shipping from Germany! Someone needs to start importing them.

It looks like the body is in great condition. Keep the color it will turn heads.

At first I was a bit frustrated. But I am getting used to it.

Yep. It sure does.

The body is in super immaculate condition. Under 16k km in 20 years, he cherished this one.

And it will turn heads, trust me. I am going deep into the engine, oversizing it and my target is north of 18hp.

Turn it into a great sleeper. They'll never know what hit them.

Once driving down the Main Street in town I was a few car lengths behind some very loud chromed up Harleys. As they passed a group of young women the women covered their ears and gave dirty looks. When I went by they all looked and smiled. Nothing turns heads like a big guy on a little pink scooter.

The VIN shows that it is a late model PX200 MY (Year 2000+ ??) and was originally white (724). The long VIN is typical in the UK, where we use 17 characters on our vehicle registration documents, they we have a lot of zeros between the model prefix and the actual frame number

As pink colour goes, it's a pretty classy shade.
Hope you keep it.
Thumbs up for the sleeper idea!

What a beautiful colour. I'm sure she'll turn heads wherever you go.
